SIMATIC PCS 7 PowerControl – Integration of Medium Voltage Switchgear according to IEC 61850

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Task
In many process engineering plants, large electrical consumers with high energy demand are used, e.g. large drives, compactors, pumps, building infeed, etc. They are integrated via medium voltage switchgear which control, switch and automate the individual consumers via devices for protection and control functions (Intelligent Electronic Devices – IEDs) on the basis of the standard IEC 61850 protocol. In practice, different systems have generally been used for monitoring and controlling the switchgear on the one hand, and for the actual process automation on the other hand.

Solution
Two worlds, one system: SIMATIC PCS 7 PowerControl is our solution for the integration of the switchgear automation into process industry. It enables combining the process automation and the automation of electronic switchgear for medium voltage into one single system. The advantages for the plant operator: significant cost reduction across the entire life cycle of the plant.

Further advantages at a glance:

  • More simple plant structures with increased transparency regarding the technological dependencies
  • Uniform picture symbols and faceplates for the IEDs with the familiar look&feel from the process automation
  • Further increase of the degree of integration and efficiency of the plant
