An Introduction to Burner Management Systems
Burner management systems enable safe, efficient start-up, operation, and shut down ofcombustion
assets for power generation facilities. The burner management system controls the main burners and
monitors them using flame detectors. It is even able to discriminate between the igniters and the main
flames. Another capacity of the burner management system is to control safety shut-off valves in case of
adverse conditions and control the blowers. Using these controls the burner management system can
control the pressure, temperature, flow, and valve position limit switches, cool scanners, and/or provide
air to the igniters for combustion.

Implementations of Burner Management Systems
There are two platforms on which burner management systems will typically be implemented. The
primary and most common is a Distributed Control System. Alternatively, some suppliers for burner
management systems can engineer burner management system logics for implementation with existing
programmable logic controllers.

Benefits of Burner Management Systems
Proper operation of burner management systems provide a number of benefits to a power facility. The
first of these if reduced maintenance. Using a burner management system to control system processes
including start up, regular operation, and shut down reduces maintenance by ensuring that these
processes are executed properly. In addition, monitoring prevents damage to equipment in adverse
conditions. This additionally provides a safer environment for plant personnel, because there is less risk
of dangerous events, which will help facilities to meet safety regulations. Proper operations of a burner
management system also improves uptime by allowing for more efficient start up, operation, and shut
down of combustion assets. This also may help a facility to meet lower emissions standards. By meeting
safety and emissions standards facilities may even pay lower insurance premiums because of their
burner management system.

Available Features for Burner Management Systems
The burner management system plays a very key role in the operation of a power generation facility,
which is why it is important that facilities make sure that their burner management systems are not
obsolete. Updating a burner management system can save facilities a lot of money as more modern
burner management systems provide more features and benefits than older systems. The following are
some features facilities need when upgrading:










Burner management system highly rated for safety, reliability, and efficiency
High quality components and processors
Compatible with all current equipment
Facility acceptance testing
Seamless integration with facility’s existing systems
Multi-burner compatible design
Fuel compatible design
Flame monitoring for management systems
Full compliance with all codes and standards

Conclusion
Burner management systems assist in the critical processes of power generation facilities. This control
system assists personnel in the startup, operation, and shut down of the furnace. Proper use of burner
management systems prevents maloperation. Using a burning management system to ensure proper
operation of the system reduces safety risks to power plant personnel and it reduces the risk of damage
to equipment. Lastly, a power plant can improve plant uptime and safety while reducing necessary
maintenance and costs by making sure that the burner management systems is up-to-date and
functioning optimally.
