Power Control Integration ServicesSwitchgear integration – using synergies efficiently
In many industrial plants, it is necessary to integrate the medium-voltage power supply switchgear into a complete automation system.
Power Control Integration Services enable electrical switchgear – featuring devices for protection and control functions (IEDs, Intelligent Electronic Devices) based on standard IEC 61850 – to be homogeneously integrated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system. This significantly increases the degree of integration of the entire plant.
Standard IEC 61850 describes an Ethernet-based station controller protocol for protection systems and instrumentation and control in electrical switchgear of medium and high-voltage technology.
Your benefits from the applications
Diverse connection options
Power Control Integration Services offer flexible integration into existing small plants via software as well as performance-oriented integration into existing systems by using additional hardware. This is done independently of the manufacturer of the protection devices by applying the IEC 61850 standards.
The use of a gateway, controller or software library in conjunction with the SIMATIC PCS 7 Power Control Library enables easy and consistent integration of IEDs – from the field level to the operator station. Furthermore, both SIEMENS switchgear and protection devices as well as devices from third-party manufacturers can be integrated.
