Prime Power Switchgear Systems provide power and control for applications where local utility is unreliable, unavailable, or uneconomical to install. Prime power sites require unique control solutions because of their critical nature. These systems can incorporate automatic synchronizing, soft transfer, fuel economizing, or run time hour balancing. The systems can also be provided with modem communication for remote monitoring, control, and datalogging, as well as alarming.
- Marine - on board power generation
- Village or island applications - system acts as the utility
- Mining, offshore platforms, gas plants, and remote refineries - providing on-site power for production.
In locations such as remote mining or gas plant operations, utility power is nonexistent. A multiple-unit, auto-synchronizing system will provide continuous reliable power for site operations and production systems. The system can control multiple units for auto sequencing, load sharing, auto-synchronizing, and protection. The controls can automatically start and stop generators as required, based on plant demand, thereby improving system downtime and facilitating maintenance.
Thomson Technology’s Marine Switchgear is designed to meet the additional requirements of the applicable marine standards such as Lloyds, DNV, or ABS. These standards deal with issues like extended temperature ranges, vibration, serviceability, and fireproofing.
