Design and manufacture of a Master Control system, for management of emergency generator power supply to new television studios and offices for GTV Channel 9, Docklands, Melbourne. The system features a Hot Standby PLC system with dual redundant CPU’s and distributed PLC I/O. A HMI touch screen operator panel is also provided, with dynamic screen displays of system operation and detailed alarm and event recording.
Systems Insight designed and commissioned a ‘Master Control’ system to automatically operate two 1.1Mega-Watt Cummins diesel generators on sensing utility mains failure. The Master Panel controls the start and synchronisation of the two generators for parallel operation. In addition, a Diesel fuel management control panel was supplied to automatically replenish the consumed diesel fuel. A Ventilation Fans control panel and a Mains Failure detection panel were also supplied for the project.
Systems Insight has completed two major projects on this high profile site with critical power requirements: One project was to provide control systems to operate four emergency diesel generators; whilst the other project was to install a SCADA System for operators to supervise the four generators and the LV & HV power reticulation systems. In total for the two projects, 25 custom-built control panels were manufactured and commissioned.
