Powergen Controls returns to South Korea

Powergen Controls returns to South Korea

Thanks to the great team at the Military Sealift Command (MSC) for all the assistance in this project.

We were traveling for two long weeks in beautiful and pristine South Korea, the food is amazing, the people extremely friendly and the weather was fantastic, we will certainly miss South Korea.

The project was finished successfully as planned. the main task for this trip was to perform thermal imaging survey in every load center and distribution switchboard, 200+ in total. In this survey we encounter different points of failure such as fire hazard connections, breakers with that needed to be tightened and many other points of failure where overheating was observed with our Thermal imaging camera. by the way, big kudos to Fluke, what an amazing camera the FLK-Ti32 60 Hz is, the images are awesome and the fusion options is just outstanding.

As far as the UPS survey we were able to test and detect possible failures that decrease the lifespan of the equipment and could potentially damage the equipment and/or operators. the biggest problems we always found in our surveys are due to temperature, this is one of the most critical thing to monitor in a UPS system, just 10 degrees above the rated temperature can deteriorate the batteries in a large scale, decreasing their lifespan to half the time.

In the PLC survey everything was found in great condition, all the 300+ PLC’s available were working flawlessly.

The support engineers in charge of this job in Korea, did an amazing job, thank you guys.

Cummins Powercommand retrofit in Fairbanks Alaska!!

Cummins Powercommand retrofit in Fairbanks Alaska!!

Dear friends, our amazing team of engineers will be in Fairbanks Alaska, the project consist in removing an old Modicon PLC system that controlled the Cummins Powercommand tied to the utility, the communication to the controllers was via Lonworks.

The system installed here in Fairbanks, included, four Onan Cummins Powercommand PCC 3100, one Modicon PLC System Modbus plus to communicate with the Switchgears and with an obsolete Lonworks card to connect with the generators, plus an HMI.

The new system retrofit will include converters from lonworks to Modbus, PLC, HMI and Proficy integration, we will also integrate all of the system switchgears with Prosoft gateways.

This cost effective solution will provide added value to the equipment and will give options for control, trending, historians and many other options to the final retrofit. The system is being replaced, new PLC is installed with a 15″ HMI for local control and a new ethernet communication is used for the remote monitoring and control in this retrofit, the customer will be able to control the units and also to read all the information in the scada system throughout the power plant.

Like every project there are challenges that will be present, we’ll keep you posted in the next couple of weeks and hopefully with some pictures of the final control panel in service.

have a wonderful day!!
