Integration is the key to success for Solar Power Plants. SPPA-T3000 has a 4th generation system architecture that eliminates the need for the subsystems required in traditional control systems. This eliminates interfaces, ensures data consistency and minimizes information overload through maximizing ease of use.
With SPPA-T3000 Siemens is the only supplier in the market, who provides you the benefit of a fully Harmonized Control System between Solar field – Balance of Plant BoP – Steam turbine.
SPPA-T3000 gives the right Information, at the right time and for the right people. Turbine control, Balance of Plant (BoP) and solar field in Concentrating Solar Power CSP or Integrated Solar Combined Cycle ISCC applications are completely automated in one system architecture and easily performed.
To support operators at mastering controls the system features are designed to make the activities of the CSP or ISCC plant operators, solar field maintenance personnel and engineers intuitive. This results in an efficient operation and engineering mode, which can be learnt easily even by inexperienced personnel.
The plant manager, the service or maintenance engineer, the production planner, the performance engineer, the plant operator, the power broker – they all can rapidly access their respective data. The faster the relevant information can be filtered from the information overload, the faster and more reliable decisions can be taken.
The System has been designed to perform all power plant automation tasks: turbine control, balance of plant (BoP) and solar field in Concentrating Solar Power CSP or Integrated Solar Combined Cycle ISCC applications.
The traditional distributed control system (DCS) uses subsystems for various applications. There is a plethora of software in various versions that require handling, updating and maintenance. Due to the software involved, different experts often perform these tasks for systems with different hardware and software.
New technologies allow for the most powerful and simple approach, the Embedded Component Services. The traditional separation between the automation system, HMI, engineering system and diagnostic system is a thing of the past. The HMI, engineering, diagnostics, etc. are just different views on the same object. The result: a simplified system architecture that eliminates the need for the subsystems required in traditional control systems.
Major benefits of SPPA-T3000, the benchmark in controls:
