Most coal-fired units in the United States choose Emerson digital automation control solutions Pittsburgh (December 11, 2007) - Emerson Process Management today announced that in the past 18 months, 12 new U.S. coal-fired units have chosen Emerson to install its PlantWeb digital plant control combined with ovation expert control system. In fact, Emerson was selected by new power plants to provide automation more frequently than any other control system supplier, which consolidated their position as the most reliable supplier in the power generation industry
the power station installed with Emerson control system generates about 300000 MW, which is equal to 40% of the peak electricity demand in the United States. These 12 new units, all of which are planned to be put into commercial operation in the next five years, will generate a total of 7000 MW, which will help the U.S. power industry meet the increasing demand for electricity. Most new units are adopting industry standard communication protocols, such as foundation 8482; Fieldbus, DeviceNet 8482; And PROFIBUS DP. The extensive use of digital fieldbus technology will show considerable advantages during the operation of power plants. During the start-up/commissioning of the power station, these technologies help to reduce cable costs, simplify equipment installation, optimize assets and quickly troubleshoot. The long-term information resources provided by digital fieldbus technology and intelligent field instruments can be used to optimize the operation and maintenance of power stations and avoid high-cost unplanned outages
"whether in the United States or in other parts of the world, Emerson has personally experienced the process of how power plants increasingly adopt digital fieldbus technology to build new facilities," said Bob Yeager, President of Emerson's utility department. "We are very pleased to see that so many power plants trust Emerson, and the implementation of digital fieldbus solutions for their new generator sets is one of the most important market solutions of aoshengde."
Emerson PlantWeb digital architecture is the blueprint for implementing an integrated digital fieldbus solution, which combines high-speed communication network, intelligent field devices, wireless communication, asset management software and bus i/o technology. Emerson's ovation control system is a key technology of PlantWeb and is specially designed to solve the challenges faced by the power generation industry. Ovation system integrates many industry-leading advanced technologies, including embedded advanced control algorithms; Fast Ethernet for handling key tasks to realize high-speed factory information communication; The most powerful controller with the shortest working cycle in the industry; A complete set of digital i/o modules, analog i/o modules and steam turbine and boiler i/o modules for special purposes; Wait
"theoretically speaking, this is the most exciting stage of the power generation industry," Ye currently has a freight rate of US $4.5/ton (70000 tons) from Indonesia to southern China ports; Ager said, "Emerson has been at the forefront and occupies the leading position in the integrated digital automation technology in the industry. As long as we see that the deployment technology of the new generation of power plants will have a positive impact on its operation, and this impact will not only appear in the initial stage, but throughout, we feel extremely worthy and gratified."
