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;

  • Opportunity to access all control parameters from any point in the system
  • Managing and monitoring the entire system from a single control platform
  • Rapid command issuing
  • Integration of electric infrastructure and automation systems
  • Prior determination and prevention of unexpected faults and reduction of maintenance time
  • Secure data acquisition and fast data flow

CONTROL SYSTEMS

With its ability to work on standard computer hardware, in addition to control systems such as DCS, PLC as well as capability to convert all control parameters into visual control tools, SCADA software makes it possible to expand the system. o meet changes in future requirements. Based on open protocol, SCADA is hardware and manufacturer independent and therefore capable of expanding to meet future requirements. It contributes to facilitating reporting and detailed analysis, minimizing faults, evaluation and improvement on energy efficiency and system performance.

PLC SYSTEMS

PLC
PLC offers maximum speed and efficiency in production processes and is an ideal solution for a multitude of automation needs; from simple to complex that require high performance, low cost and flexibility. ABB‘s AC500 automation platform for PLC applications is capable of meeting these ever increasing customer requirements. With its scalable architecture, AC500 secures your investment. Managing more than one field bus with a single control system, user-friendly structure, easy configuration and ample communication possibilities are other significant advantages provided by AC500 PLC to our customers.

COMPACT DCS SYSTEMS

Compact and scalable DCS systems -in addition to providing powerful automation functions- present low cost advantage for hardware and software. Ensuring minimum engineering and maximum automation facilities, ABB Freelance compact DCS systems have open and modern system architecture. With its distributed architecture installed at the field by controllers, it can effectively reduce cabling costs. Freelance requires single software for application engineering, commissioning and fault finding and therefore can be fully integrated into field bus management control system. Visual components pre- engineered for operators are one of many advantages to users.

SCADA SYSTEMS

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system basically consists of human-machine interfaces (HMI), host and client computer systems, remote terminal units (RTU), DCS and PLCs, various communication structures, and different instruments. HMI is the interface that provides process data to the operator and therefore allowing the operator to monitor and control the process. RTU is the unit that provides connection with sensors in the process, converts sensor signals into digital signals and sends these signals upstream to the system. PLC is a configurable and flexible field device that performs similar functions locally. Created as a visual control platform intended for all supervision, control and monitoring, SCADA can be present on one or more networks together with subsystems mentioned above. This structure allows SCADA quick and easy access to process data and helps taking precaution against potential faults. The entire control architecture covering a number of systems can be transferred to SCADA over DCSs; such as turbine and boiler control, cooling systems control, monitoring coal transportation line, switchyard and MCC panels, controlling condensers and analyzing gases in a power plant etc. In addition to control functions, SCADA offers many facilities such as monitoring events and alarms, examining and reporting information retrospectively, providing information to remote operators via GSM networks. Production report drafts required by electric utilities companies can be prepared beforehand with reporting function and automatically created at desired intervals (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.). Also, “predictive maintenance” can be made by monitoring operation times and alarms of actuators such as breakers, engines, pumps, valves located in the field. In this way, faults which may occur can be estimated, and down times may be shortened. With Thin Clients or Web Clients, state of the system can also be monitored from any remote point outside of the plant.

SUBSTATION AUTOMATION UP TO 500KV

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.
