The customer needed support to realise a new control system for the existing emergency power generators, the old PLC system was outdated and not reliable any more.
The existing control system was based on a single controller that controlled four generators of 1MW each and 13 power distributers (ATS’en). The demands were that on single failure couldn’t lead to the failure of the emergency power system.
To realise the demands of the end customer we helped to design a new control system with ComAp controllers so we could set up each generator and ATS with their own controllers that communicate with each other for the required information.
The new design leaded that if one of the controllers of a component failed the other system is able to be fully operational.
The new setup also allowed to run parallel to the power grid and stand alone.
Our scope of work:
– System engineering
– Software development
– Design document
– Building documents
– Construction guidance
– Commissioning of the system
