Load shedding system for offshore project
Requiring a simple load shedding system without the use of PLC’s made a switchboard builder contact DEIF
Intelligent system ensures a stable system
The existing gensets on the four platforms were already equipped with DEIF’s AGC-4 controller. Hence, DEIF’s engineering team proposed the customer a simple load shedding system based on the ALC-4 load controller, which would easily communicate with the genset controllers.
The solution matched all the customers’ needs and could be integrated with the existing system. The package comprised two ALC-4 for load feeding control and one for controlling the eight feeders. Besides, the solution included an AGI 415 HMI for monitoring the load current and prioritisation of the load feeders.
The first system has already been commissioned on one of the four platforms, and the rest will follow as soon as Covid-19 restrictions allow for a visit.
