Power Plant Automation

Overview

SPRECON-E is also applied as a control system for power plants with plant-specific process interfaces and configurable automatic functions according to IEC 61131-3 – independent of the various power plant types and technologies.

Here, SPRECON-V460 acts as a power plant control system distinguished by features like multitasking, integrated firewall as well as bumpless redundancy (hot stand-by with automatic and manual switching).

Beside implementation of SPRECON-E as a complete power plant control system, the platform can be also integrated as a partial system for new power plants or for modernisation (retrofit) of existing power plants. A typical retrofit example is the implementation of a control center system by simultaneously sustaining existing processrelated automation hardware.

The decisive requirement to automation is an approach to a one hundred
percent availability. For this purpose, Sprecher Automation offers customised, redundant client-server-systems.
