TP ACS development for gas industry
TP ACS DEVELOPMENT FOR GAS INDUSTRY
Main and auxiliary equipment of an electric power station relates to TP ACS controlled objects in the overwhelming majority of projects. These are gas-piston and diesel electric power stations with auxiliaries plants and automatic control systems, cubicles of generator and bus section circuit breakers, of outgoing lines circuit breakers, and heat substations.
STANDARD CONFIGURATION OF ELECTRIC POWER STATION’S TP ACS
TP ACS standard configuration consists of genset and common power station levels.
- The genset level holds local automatic control system (AuCS) and auxiliary AuCS.
- Based on the received commands and data on the parameters of a controlled process they issue equipment control signals.
Common power station level
The algorithms of control and monitoring of power station’s equipment and lower level automatic control systems are realized at the common power station level based on data received from the own information sources and from other automatic control systems through the information network.
The TP ACS common power station level includes the power station’s automatic control system level (made as cabinets with backup control panels, on which the main mnemonic with backup controls and indicators is placed) and the online control and monitoring level, at which automated workplaces (AWP) of specialists, redundant servers, central timing system, and report printer are located.
Specialists’ AWP permit complete control over the state of technological andf other equipment of the electric power station, analysis of current or archive data, control over operation of single plants or subsystems.
