Mark VIe Control Platform

The Mark VIe control system is a flexible platform for multiple applications. It features high-speed, networked I/O for simplex, dual, and triple redundant systems. Industry-standard Ethernet communications are used for I/O, controllers, and supervisory interface to operator and maintenance stations, and third-party systems. A common ControlST* software suite is used with the Mark VIe controls and related systems for programming, configuration, trending, and analyzing diagnostics. It provides a single source of quality, time-coherent data at the controller and plant level for effectively managing equipment assets.

GE Energy’s Mark VIe control is being applied to a wide range of applications. Its flexible architecture enables optimal solutions for Wind, Hydro, Thermal, and Nuclear facilities. The Mark VIe Integrated Control System (ICS) extends this flexibility from the traditional unit controls supplied by GE Energy, to complete plant solutions delivering advanced performance, operability, and availability to customers.



Mark VIe Control Platform


The Mark VIe control was introduced in 2004 for use on gas and steam turbines as a turbine control system for generator and mechanical drives and plant control. It is a complementary control to the Mark VI with enhancements for distributed I/O and dual redundancy. Like the Mark VI, it has a wide application range from small governors to plant DCS applications.
