Analysis on transformation design of electrical control system for thermal power plant based on DCS technologyAuthor(s): Zou Zihao
Distributed Control System (DCS) has been widely recognized in the field of modern thermal power thermal control, and has significant effects in the application process. Today, the monitoring of electrical quantities is included into the DCS system, thus replacing the traditional "one to one" manual mode of operation in electrical control. It is to further improve the main works of the station automation and control systems. Combined with the actual project needs, this study focuses on the components of electrical control included in DCS system, the implementation of software and hardware features, and the measures to improve reliability. In addition, useful discussions have been made for some technical problems. In the DCS system, the electrical control inclusion is not just a perfection thermal power plant electrical control system, but a big improvement as well. In addition, it is a new attempt. At present, most of the electrical control parts of control system are included into the DCS system with the manual operation basically cancelled, but there are some problems, for example many of the designs do not match with the original operating habits, etc., which will have a certain impact on the tradition. In the transformation process of system, some of the designs are good but cannot be achieved currently. They still need further research and improvement, for example how can the electrical control of system enter into the DCS in a better manner, how can the display of light texts upon failure or abnormal time weaken electric signals in a more comprehensive and rapid manner, what are the new requirements for anti-interference, and other sequential control functions to be improved and perfected.
