Elna Company, the AdAstra's authorized system integrator, has developed a new serial project: the process control system for low-capacity gas-turbine power plants up to 12 MW.
The developers believe that the implementation of such system will provide a tremendous economic effect: in Russia such system allows to reduce the cost of electricity in 1000 times.
The gas-turbine power plant process control system has been developed on the PC-based PLC ELPK, manufactured by Elna and the integrated SCADA/HMI & Softlogic system TRACE MODE 5, by AdAstra Research Group. The main tasks of this process control system are the following:
- continuous acquisition and preliminary data processing;
- diagnostics of hardware and software at all system levels;
- emergency alarm signalling and logging of emergency events, including the electric part of the project;
- history logging;
- remote control.
The first gas-turbine power plant process control systems have been implemented in Rybinsk Motor Plant (Russia) and Saturn company (Russia).
