Multiple control options deliver superior control and protection

Turbine Control Systems

Nexus Controls, a Baker Hughes business, offers integrated turbine and compressor controls that deliver outstanding performance and exceptional value to our customers.

Baker Hughes engineers and technicians manufacture each of its gas turbines and compressors in our own factories so our customers can be assured of the perfection and integrity in every piece of machinery that rolls out of our factories.

By comparison, our competitors have no onsite manufacturing facilities nor do they offer the expertise to design, manufacture and assemble rotating equipment to produce the best gas turbines and compressors that Baker Hughes delivers to our customers every day.

Nexus Controls owns, manages and maintains our control platform to deliver outstanding hardware, firmware and software solutions tailored to the unique requirements of each customer.


Nexus OnCore Control System

Nexus Controls' - Nexus OnCore Control System is designed to help plant operators improve their decision-making speed and accuracy when the plant fails to operate correctly under normal conditions. The Nexus OnCore Control System offers a unified software environment that can quickly and accurately change the application system logic that controls plant operations in real time, online. This capability optimizes up-time without the need to rely on the manufacturer.

Nexus OnCore Safety System

Nexus OnCore† systems increase equipment availability, reliability and maintainability for rotating machines, offering a broad, specialized portfolio that includes critical cybersecurity features and diagnostic approach to the OEM system vendor.

The Nexus OnCore† Safety System is a programmable electronic safety-related system defined by IEC 61508 (2010), having a system capability of SC 3 and safety integration level of SIL 3 by 2oo3 architectural design. It can be applied to those applications which requires no higher than SIL 3 under low demand operation mode.

GE's Mark VIe Control Platform

GE's Mark VIe control system system supports even the largest and most complex turbines and Nexus Controls can perform retrofits and upgrades for your GE fleet.

With over 150 years of experience, Nexus Controls' original equipment manufacturer (OEM) expertise takes controls to new levels of performance, operability and flexibility.

Dedicated Team of Retrofit Specialists

Our team will design, install and commission generator control and protection products, including excitation, static start and generator protection systems. Broad domain expertise in modernizing excitation applications includes brushless, static and compound systems on gas, steam, hydro and nuclear turbine generators from a wide variety of global manufacturers. Excitation and starter upgrades can be provided as standalone projects or combined with our turbine and plant controls, HMI and cybersecurity products to provide a fully-integrated retrofit solution.

Instrumentation and Controls Systems

Nexus Controls electromechanical solutions are critical to a control system's migration or a full panel retrofit. Users are urged to consider integration requirements based on the control system’s age and its interface with software and electromechanical components. 

Nexus Controls offers expertise and OEM knowledge to evaluate these needs and ensure that assets remain reliable. Our solutions can enhance performance, online capability, provide redundancy and fit within the current operations envelope.

OptiComp™ Compressor Train Control

Drawing on more than 150 years of accumulated domain knowledge in turbine and compressor controls in gas processing and pipelines, our OptiComp™ Integrated Compressor Control Suite offers a comprehensive and scalable solution with superior control software running on GE's Mark™ VIe control platform.

We can extend control and protective functions for equipment beyond the basic machine train, such as associated auxiliaries up to and including the entire compressor station. Bently Nevada's Compressor Control Suite leverages the 3500 series.

Turboexpander Control System

Nexus Controls' turboexpander-compressors are used industry-wide for reliable refrigeration service and high plant energy efficiency. We provide the frame sizes, capacities, footprints and weights to match virtually any application.

With more than 150 years’ experience, our global installed base includes the industry’s first turboexpander-compressor used for GTL, first NACE-compliant active magnetic bearings (AMB), and the first AMB installed on an FPSO.

HMI Upgrades and Configurations

Nexus Controls' Human Machine Interface (HMI) supports a more efficient and productive control system and unit performance. HMIs offer a window into your operations, providing the intelligence that operators and maintenance technicians need to maintain and improve the productivity of the plant’s assets.
