Automated Power Systems

Electrical power systems form an essential element in the sustainability of modern life and are utilized in almost every corner of the world. Electrical power allows quality of life, technological advances, business progression and relative security. Power systems are made up of a network of connected equipment which is used to generate, distribute and supply electricity to end users.
In order for the electrical power to be useful, it must be of good quality, reliable and safe. Some of the equipment used to supply and distribute electricity includes

  • Generators
  • Transmission Poles and Towers
  • Transformers
  • Substations
  • Underground & Overhead Cabling
  • Switchgear
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Metering
  • Automation
  • Measurement and Control

Automation can be integrated into all areas of a power system which allows a small number of people to manage and control large power networks, sometimes across vast geographical regions. Automation provides a crucial interface between operations management, power control, data acquisition, efficiency and safety. Some automation systems that are integrated into power networks include SCADA, PLC, RTU, IED and HMI.

Automation allows isolated and remote control of power systems, everything from voltage control, fault analysis and clearing, load shedding, synchronization, back-up generator management, power factor correction, emergency procedure implementation and in extreme events, total network shutdown. Designing and implementing a functional and reliable automated power system requires a thorough understanding of the power network along with what level of supervision, control, protection, synchronization, fault analysis and isolation will be required.
