MAS is not only known for its advanced solutions in prime power plants. The company has a long history in systems regarding backup or peak shaving plants.
The systems MAS designs and delivers provide impressive automation features that few other companies have the capability to deliver. It is not therefore by chance that companies like ABB, Siemens, Good Year, Lafarge, Philip Morris and many more trust MAS to design and implement their backup power installations.
MAS has engineered an impressive number of new and retrofit projects in that sector. All such systems offer extensive features like close transition, peak shaving and power managing logic. All backup plants that MAS designs have the capability to synchronize with the grid and transfer power to and from the generators without interruption of the loads. Complex synchronization schemes can be implemented to accommodate multiple transformers and / or power sectors.
Complex algorithms ensure the flow of power in critical processes even in the event of malfunction (ex. automatic fault handling scenarios).
Special functionally is also delivered in most backup plants which have the ability to work in peak-shaving mode and in effect lessen the electric bill and/or have more power available than the agreed power from the utility. Another available function of MAS system is the ability of “hot-Standby” which in effect runs the backup plant in parallel with the grid but without load. This is used in emergency situations when even if the grid fails there will be no power loss.
Throughout its existence MAS had delivered countless such installations, a small sample of which is given below:
