MAS GMS is an exclusively designed solution for Power Plants, which incorporates specialized functions and tools aimed at proving comprehensive supervision, control and operation of a complete Power Plant.

The GMS solution is a suite that covers all operational needs of a thermal plant starting from local HMIs, local and remote control rooms and leading to the central control room where everything is aggregated. Developed on the Across® platform, MAS GMS suite is taking advantage of the latest IT technology. Across® GMS is a tested and creditworthy mission critical software solution that offers a variety of advanced features.

Across® GMS provides:

  • Complete monitoring and control of all plant machinery (engines, gas, steam and hydro turbines) as well as all plant peripheral systems.

  • Comprehensive electrical measurements of the complete plant (units, peripherals, net power, gross power, etc).

  • Advance graphical interfaces with impressive graphics and true real-time updates.

  • In depth historical data of all measurements.

  • Special fault handling with pre-alarm warnings (projected faults), route cause analysis tools, etc.

  • Unit & plant efficiency calculations (cost curve, load profiles, etc).

  • Unit scheduling and power balancing algorithms.

  • Power management & load shedding interfaces.

  • Sophisticated dashboard and reporting engine.

Operating power plants at maximum efficiency is a high priority for any generation utility. Different factors such as load conditions, equipment degradation, ambient conditions, and operator oversight may cause the generation unit to operate under less than optimal conditions.

MAS GMS ensures optimal results. The solution enables operators to constantly safeguard the optimal operation of the generating unit.  In large plants with existing “older” control systems, the GMS suite can be closely integrated with older unit control systems as well as with the plant’s DCS offering and overall control platform that provides a high-level supervision. This cutting edge solution offers advisory inputs to the operator in real time regarding key efficiency parameters, both on machinery and auxiliary equipment performance.

MAS GMS suite supports functionallity and logic that fit all known power plant installations and equipment such as: Gas or Steam Turbine power plants, Engine based Power plants, Hydro power plants.  The solution incorporates internal logic support for both base load plants as well as peak shaving plants. Additionally, special logic for backup plants has been developed, which contributes to the bidirectional control of power as well as to the notion of power source redundancy.

 

Across® PPM

Across® PPM is a versatile solution that can accommodate every Power Plant operational need. It has proven performance both in local installations of a few hundred IOs up to installation of hundreds of thousands IOs monitoring and controlling several Power Plants in a wide geographical area. Across® PPM is an adjustable solution, with the ability to scale from a single server up to complex redundant topologies with interconnected servers across remote locations.
