The main reasons to conduct a turbine performance test are:
measure the actual performance of the unit and correct it to the contractual conditions.
verify if a new unit meets the specifications of the applicable purchase contract, therefore if liquidated damages or “make good” actions are required.
Assess the prior/after performance improvement due to a major maintenance outage.
