Refurbishment of the 400-volt main power supply including new design of the power system configurations (connection to earth design)

  • Replacement of low-voltage main distribution board and sub-distribution boards for load centers

  • Application-minded, integrated planning from the initial draft to plant installation, supported by the SIMARIS software tools

  • Pinpoint use of products and systems meets high demands at maximum economic efficiency

  • No compromise as regards operator and plant safety

  • Highly transparent plant condition and energy flows as a basis for their integration into process control including optimized power management

Products & systems by Totally Integrated Power applied

  • Selection and switchgear configuration with the aid of the SIMARIS design and SIMARIS project software tools

  • More than 100 panels of the SIVACON S8 low-voltage switchboard ensure the safety of operator personnel and the plant even under arcing fault conditions, in type-tested quality

  • 350 PAC3200 multi-function measuring instruments make all energy flows and the switching / protection status transparent, this allows for very efficient power management

  • All status messages are transmitted via PROFIBUS-DP using
    - communication-capable circuit-breakers
    - SIMATIC ET200M modules for fuse-protected cable feeders and messages to the periphery

  • This makes the entire switchboard communication-capable via the PROFIBUS-DP terminals
