Primary and Secondary Plant Design and Commissioning
The commissioning of large central plants requires a thorough understanding of the new technologies that enable a facility to achieve optimum energy efficiency. Primary Integration has provided commissioning services for substations. Our in-house Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) have in-depth experience with the design and programming of relays and PLC, SCADA and digital controls, and expertise in the application and integration of these technologies into the operation of large central plants.
This includes SAT and FAT (Site and Factory Acceptance Testing).
Also referred to as Thermographic Scanning which involves scanning for hot spots and abnormal heating patterns thus enabling the detection and repairing of defects before they result in in juries, equipment failure and even power outages.
Maintenance and Fault Analysis
This involves the inspection of various equipment, cleaning of insulating members and the appropriate testing of various devices to ensure good quality, durability and most importantly, safety and preventing unnecessary outages.
The main focus areas are:
Audits and testing
Maintenance, Repairs & installation of High Voltage Breaker (6,6KV-132KV) oil, SF6 gas vacuum
Refurbishment of ring main units/switchgears
Maintenance of medium voltage transformers & mini-subs
A comprehensive course covering the fundamentals of power system protection, current best practice, protection system management and new developments in protection technology.
The training covers amongst others:
Role of Protection
Measuring Transformers and Transducers
Protection of Radial Networks
Protection to improve Security in Non-radial Networks
Transformer and Transformer Feeder Protection
Protection in Systems with Generators
Advanced Protection Techniques
Relay and Substation Communications
Application of Modern Relays and Case Study
Radial Feeder Protection – Case Study
Retrofitting refers to the addition of new technology or features to older systems. Power plant retrofit includes changing of old electro mechanical relays to IEDs improving power plant efficiency / increasing output / reducing emissions.
Metering and SCADA Systems
Nerm Applications and Testing specialises with statistical, tariff metering and power quality management systems for all substations and factories. We also offer automation and SCADA systems for all substations and factories (61850).
