Power System Control Applications
Square D Power System Automatic Controls are a total solution approach including control design, programmable controller logic and supervisory software functions. We tailor systems to provide user interaction, digital alarming for extremely fast response, graphical animation and the exact amount of flexibility that is needed.
Generally, automatic control capabilities are integrated through programmable controllers and hardwire interlocking into the power system but they are more than that. Power System Automatic Controls are installed to meet an critical business objective. Whether it be helping to control energy costs or enabling you to increase power reliability at your facility, we have a vast array of power system controls experience.
Automatic Throwover – provide automatic selection of available utility or generator sources to maintain service continuity to connected loads.
Load Shedding/Peak Shaving – control peak demand levels or ensure service continuity to critical load or operate breakers in accordance with user specified sequences and time delays such as bringing large motors online across several billing kw demand periods to avoid demand penalties.
Load Preservation – fast acting sophisticated control systems designed to stabilize critical power systems to the greatest extent possible by monitoring frequency and power sources from utility plus generator capacity versus total circuit load.
