Diesel PowerStation KPIs

Power Station performance monitoring with ibaHD-Server and ibaQPanel

iba Oceania designed and implemented a Visualisation and Acquisition Package with ibaHD-Server and ibaQPanel to assist operators monitor and manage efficient despatch of diesel generation. Varying capacity of generation plant and service condition of plant has an impact on power station fuel efficiency. Live display of the generation and power station key performance indicators empower operations with the ability to make energy saving decisions resulting in reduced fuel consumption and energy efficiency improvements.

Business Benefits

High speed data acquisition
allows for fast and accurate Power Station Performance analysis, tuning and planning

Visualisation of fuel efficiency
and other power station KPIs lead to energy usage reduction


The Technology


A basic starter acquisition package of Voltage, current and fuel metering via a PADU-S-CM modular system enables access to live Specific Fuel Consumption, Fuel Efficiency and Power Quality indicators on up to 4 machines or feeders. The system can be readily expanded to incorporate:

• Vibration and Condition monitoring,

• Communication to PLCs, Power meters, Relays and VSDs

• Import of COMTRADE files

The ibaPDA solution is also fully integrable with modern SCADA systems via Active-X controls enhancing operating capability and experience.

Supporting T&D

The high speed acquisition capabilities enable the system to be used as a transient fault recorder to assist operations with fault analysis and network discrimination. Cross referencing T&D line crew reports with transient fault data assist engineering with enhanced distribution protection design leading to reduced nuisance trips and increased network availability.

Supporting Renewables integration

As renewables participate in increasing levels of network penetration, issues regarding voltage and frequency stability as well as with spinning reserve and reactive power support lead to significant concern. The high fidelity and resolution data allow power station engineers to accurately measure and assess grid stability and the impacts of renewables such as solar, in order to update models to reflect the power system, prepare plans and be prepared for the future.

Power Station Reports

The ibaPDA solution provides statistical analysis and reporting capabilities to support benchmarking covering areas including power quality, availability, downtime, Energy production/loss, fuel usage, restoration time, load profiling and other KPIs.

iba Products


ibaPDA is a PC-based system to centrally record data. The recording can be made to store data continuously or event based. An efficient report generator allows for the creation of customized analytical reports.

ibaHD-Server find past events rapidly, using the high resolution Historical Data (HD) server - also for continuous and long running projects. With the zoom function, you can travel from the annual, monthly or weekly overview down to the millisecond range.

ibaQPanel enables enhanced display process and quality data, conditions and events in live mode in a technology-related representation. It combines the functionality of an interactive measurement value display with elements from the area of HMI.

Sistema modular iba

El sistema modular iba registra y procesa señales de medición y, con los módulos adecuados de salida de señales, es perfectamente apto para aplicaciones de control. La gran ventaja del sistema es su concepto modular, que permite diseñarlo libremente: En un estante para módulos con bus de fondo se pueden conectar una unidad central y hasta otros cuatro módulos de entrada y salida.

ibaPDA

Como parte central del sistema iba, ibaPDA lleva años demostrando que es uno de los sistemas de registro de datos más versátil para el mantenimiento y la producción. La arquitectura cliente-servidor, la grabación flexible y la configuración sencilla gracias a la detección automática son solo algunas de las características más convincentes.

ibaHD-Server

Encuentre eventos anteriores rápidamente con el servidor de datos históricos (HD, "Historical Data") de alta resolución, también válido para procesos continuos y de larga ejecución. Con la función de acercamiento, es posible examinar la vista general desde anual, mensual o semanal hasta intervalos de milisegundos con solo un clic del ratón.

ibaQPanel

ibaQPanel es un complemento del software que permite la visualización en directo de datos sobre procesos y calidad en una imagen HMI. ibaQPanel combina la funcionalidad de las representaciones tecnológicas de las variables de medición con los elementos típicos de las pantallas HMI. Está integrado a la perfección en ibaPDA.

ibaAnalyzer

ibaAnalyzer se caracteriza por sus amplias funciones de análisis y evaluación. La aplicación ofrece un funcionamiento intuitivo, junto con un variado alcance de funciones. La licencia para editar archivos de medición generados con el sistema iba es gratuita.
