This opinion is confined to matters of Philippine law and no opinion is expressed as to the laws of any other jurisdiction. Yours faithfully, 57 61 FOURTEENTH SCHEDULE TESTING PROCEDURES I. GUARANTEE TESTS (1) PURPOSE OF THE GUARANTEE TESTS To demonstrate to NAPOCOR that the Power Station generator output and the Plant Net Heat Rate are in accordance with the Specifications (the "Guarantee Tests"). (2) TESTS CONDITIONS (a) All gas turbine generating units of the Power Station will be tested by HOPEWELL and the weighted average results compared to the Guaranteed Plant Net Heat Rate and generating capacity described in the Specifications. (b) The measuring points will be the fuel supply meters, and the electricity billing meters. (c) The Power Station is to be tested when the units are in clean condition and the tests will be conducted within 100 hrs of loaded operation of the unit, or of cleaning, or as agreed between HOPEWELL and NAPOCOR. (d) Throughout the Guarantee Tests, measurements will be taken while the Power Station is operated at maximum continuous rating ("MCR"). (e) If HOPEWELL notifies NAPOCOR that the Power Station is to be tested for partial completion (for example, (100MW) then the test conditions above and the test procedures below shall apply to such testing provided that (i) in respect of generating capacity, HOPEWELL shall only be required to achieve the minimum capacity which is the object of the test and (ii) in respect of the Tested Plant Net Heat Rate, a value in excess of the Guaranteed Plant Net Heat Rate shall not mean a failure of the Guarantee Tests for partial completion if, upon the weighted averaging of the Tested Plant Net Heat Rate with the results from the Guarantee Tests for plant completion, such average Tested Plant Net Heat Rate remains within the Guaranteed Plant Net Heat Rate. (f) If HOPEWELL has successfully completed a partial completion test, then the final Guarantee Test for plant completion shall only be in respect of those units untested. 58 62 (3) TEST PROCEDURES (a) During testing, both NAPOCOR and HOPEWELL will make every effort to maintain the frequency, load, power factor and stator voltage steady and as near possible to specified values. (b) Electrical power output will be measured by a three phase integrating watt hour meter (the Billing meter), calibrated at a laboratory approved by HOPEWELL and NAPOCOR immediately prior to the tests. (c) Fuel flow will be measured by the volumetric flow meter located on the fuel supply pipelines. The meter will be calibrated by an approved establishment for the load range and calibration curves will be produced for inspection. (d) All test points are to be taken under steady state conditions. Steady-state conditions are assumed to exist when the variation in gas turbine exhaust temperatures and wheelspace temperatures reach a minimum. (e) When the following fluctuations are exceeded the test results shall be considered by both NAPOCOR and HOPEWELL to determine whether they are acceptable or not. The term "fluctuation" is intended to mean the difference between the maximum or minimum value of a variable for a single test point and average of the values recorded for that variable at the test point.
Maximum Fluctuation ------------------- Compressor inlet air temperature + 1.5 degree C _ Fuel rate + 2% _ Speed of load turbine + 1% _ Measured load + 2% _
(f) The tests will be conducted using normal operating fuel with specifications in accordance with the Fourth Schedule. Fuel heating value and specific gravity will be determined by a properly qualified laboratory. (g) Test readings for the Guarantee Tests will be recorded at ten minutes intervals during a one hour period after the units have achieved a steady state condition. (h) Instrumentation Instruments used to measure performance are all panel instruments unless otherwise mentioned. 59 63 Only those measurement items marked with an asterisk (see Table I) are required for the Guarantee Tests. Instruments used to measure the quantities required for the Guarantee Tests will be calibrated over their expected operating ranges. In addition other instruments will be monitored to ensure the units are operated under steady state conditions. (4) TOLERANCE Only output and heat rate at MCR are guaranteed with tolerance. The measuring tolerance values at MCR are as follows: Tolerance of output : 1.75% Tolerance of heat rate : 3.0% (5) HEAT RATE CALCULATION Station Heat Rate, Btu Total Heat of Fuel Input --- = --------------------------- KWh Net Electrical Power Output Total Heat Input of Fuel, Btu = Weight of Fuel Input, --- hr lb x Heating Value, Btu -- --- hr lb Net Electrical output is measured by the KWhr meter on the high voltage side of the generator transformer. Note: The Tested Plant Net Guaranteed Net Heat Rate is the weighted average of the Tested Plant Net Heat Rates of the Guarantee Tests. II. Information Tests (1) PURPOSE OF INFORMATION TESTS To provide information only on the operating characteristics of the Power Station and its performance at various conditions. (2) GENERATOR TESTS The following tests will be conducted at the time of the Guarantee Tests or as agreed between HOPEWELL and NAPOCOR. 60 64
