KEY FACTS AND FEATURES

Special Applications for Electrical Power Systems

Circuit Element Limit Calculation

Description:

Allows the tracking of the Circuit Element Limit Calculation by recording the normal and emergency ratings along with limitations imposed by Protection Schemes

Major Benefits:

Allows the automatic calculation of the Most Limiting Series Element. (MLSE)

Reliability Centered Maintenance

Description:

RCM is a method to optimize the maintenance plan for technical equipment. The overall aim is to reduce the failure rate and preserve the system functions by achieving a balance between event-orientated and preventive maintenance.

Major Benefits:

Ensure cost-effective and reliable operations of your technical assets by applying a maintenance strategy which focuses on the most important functions of the equipment, and its position in the grid.

Load Shedding Management

Description:

This module group allows you to have your entire load shedding data at a glance.

Major Benefits:

Major benefits are that you can manage your load shedding strategy, information and historical data

Safe Load Calculation

Description:

This module group allows you to define your own safe load criteria and evaluate them whenever you want/need.

Major Benefits:

Major benefits are that you can track asset data and relay settings that may interfere/get in conflict with your safe load criteria (i.e. plausibility check).

Advanced engineering and integration tools

Description:

This module group allows you to administrate fault records and events related (or not) to protection relays.

Major Benefits:

Major benefit is that you can attach fault records, events, COMTRADE files and so on to relay assets that are managed in IPS-ENERGY™ database.

TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS

CURRENT SOLUTION: does not provide support for modern Reliability Centred Maintenance Methodology.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS delivers a global RCM failure mode library with FMEA template definition and root cause analysis, allowing estimation of your current maintenance concept in correlation with RCM Methodology.

CURRENT SOLUTION: has difficulties providing asset management related data for facility and line rating calculations.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS offers advanced Circuit Element Limit Calculations by recording the normal and emergency ratings along with limitations imposed by Protection Schemes.

CURRENT SOLUTION: faces difficulties in definition and data management of load shedding concepts.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS allows definition of the load shedding concept based on load shedding groups.
