Our isolation valves cannot fully stop the steam from getting to the steam turbine (combined cycle plant). At around 40psi, the MWs drop or jump by 10-20 MW within a second. I think it is a crack on the stem of the control valve. Could it be something else?
Is there anyway to fix this without doing a total plant outage?
