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.

iba 模块化系统

iba 模块化系统可采集并处理测量信号,相应的信号输出模块完美适合控制应用。系统的决定性优势是可自由设计的模块化理念:在具有背板总线的模块支架上,可以插入一个中央单元以及最多四个其他输入和输出模块。


作为 iba 系统的核心部分,ibaPDA 证明了自身是多年以来用于维护和生产的最为通用的数据采集系统之一。客户端-服务器架构、灵活记录、凭借自动检测轻松配置众多令人信服的功能之一。


使用高分辨率历史数据 (HD) 服务器可以快速查找过去的事件以及长时间持续运行的进程。借助缩放功能,只需单击鼠标即可浏览,从每年、每月或每周概览直至毫秒范围。


ibaQPanel 是一个软件插件,可以在 HMI 画面中实时显示过程和质量数据。ibaQPanel 兼具测量变量的技术表示功能和 HMI 屏幕的典型元素。该软件无缝集成在 ibaPDA 中。


ibaAnalyzer 具有全面的功能,可进行分析和评估。该应用程序提供直观操作以及复杂的功能。用于打开并编辑 iba 系统生成的测量文件的授权是免费的。
