Electrical Control & Management System (ECMS)
A typical plant utilizes ECMS to control and monitor the electrical power distribution system via the computer and networking technology. It interfaces with HV / LV switchgear, HV/LV MCC, HV VFD, Transformers gas turbine generators, essential generators, heat tracing system and cathodic protection system and UPS/DC systems. The objective of ECMS is to enhance the safety, operability, maintainability, and reliability of the electrical power system.
All the control and monitoring operations, and operator stations are located in the ECMS main control room. This main ECMS server performs data exchanges via IEDs acquired via IEC 61850.
