Windfarm Grid Controller

Riverside Automation has recently successfully completed the latest in a series of grid control interfaces. The system is implemented on a ControlLogix PLC and SCADA system. This includes, active power control, Reactive power control and voltage control. This is achieved by interfacing to a range of equipment such as Socomec Diris, GE Power Quality meters and Schneider ION meters with protocols such as DNP3, Modbus, Mitsubishi CC:link, IEC 60870-5, IEC 61850 and IEC101.

Riverside supplied operator desks, control panels, PLC software, SCADA configuration, data logging and commissioning services. An ongoing support contract ensures the system is maintained and downtime minimised.
