Automation and control systems enable efficient and safe operation of power plants by minimizing the risks. Monitoring and reporting ensure the opportunity to access all control points from any given point in the system as well as flexibility, speed and minimized faults. Kontrolmatik maximizes automation through ”Balance of Plant“ integration, control systems and turbine control systems specifically designed for your facility.
Contributions of automation systems to power plants;
Substation automation includes power control systems in substations, signal measurement, protection as well as remote management devices and functions intended for transferring field data into central station. In order to perform control operations in a reliable way, state of the switchyard should be continuously monitored. This means reliable products and secure communication with control center are essential. The technological advancements allow the use of distributed control systems in switchyards instead of central control. The most important elements of this system are relay systems called intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). Basic needs such as protection, control, monitoring and communication can be handled by intelligent electronic devices.
