Conventional control can be various and applied in many kinds of industries. In this article, we will mainly discuss the one with industrial use which is also called conventional control system.
This control system, also called conventional control system, is commonly used in factories for different purposes, such as safety purpose, productivity increasing purpose, automation, or any other possible solutions.
Conventional control system provides complete integrated, modular solution sets including engineering, design, manufacturing assembly, wiring, testing and commissioning support for protection. Thus, controls and automatic power system applications would be protected and supported by this system.
In factories, conventional control systems can be very important and necessary for increasing productivity while reducing the producing cost. For a good conventional control system, the features listed below should be included.
● Cost Saving and Productivity Increasing
With the help of a conventional control system, the productivity would be increased and the cost including engineering and site acceptance costs would be deducted approximately 15% of the total capability. Thus, it would lead to the result of economic benefits for the manufacturers.
● Reducing Cycle Time
The reduction of cycle time can mean a lot for a factory. First of all, the productivity would be increased since the duration of producing one product is deducted. Secondly, once productivity increases, under the condition of stable quality of products, the opportunities for reaching more clients would be possible to increase.
● Protection to Electrical Devices
The conventional control system contains essential protecting devices to protect relays, the whole devices, and automation sub-systems. This would prevent the crush of the system which might impact productivity.
● Providing High Efficiency
This control system provides integrated platforms which can fulfill the purpose of reaching the higher level of automation, cost optimization and enhanced process with more efficiency.
● Excellent Control of the Power Infrastructure
Conventional control system has the ability to excellently control of the power infrastructure in order to make the service restoration faster and then improve the system reliability.
Conventional control systems that are specially designed for factories would dedicate in providing solutions for specific fields. Below are some examples that they are included in the field's conventional control system can be applied, but not the only situations.
Conventional Control System offers fully integrated sub-system solutions that can help to protect and control the generators in any level.
Pre-designed modular protection would control the automation solutions for transmission system assets such as transmission lines, bus-bars, large transformers and capacitor banks.
There are some expandable modular solutions for assets within a distribution substation, such as transformers, breakers, cap-banks, reclosers and switches.
● Power Utilization and Automation
For factories, conventional control systems provide a wide variety of proper modular metering, automation, industrial process protection and suitable control solutions.
● Flexible and Expandable
The pre-designed modular solutions can make the expansion, installation and testing progress easier to operate. By leveraging modularity and standardization, the cycle of automation would be speeded up.
● Total Quality Solution
By the standardized manufacturing processes, the quality of the products would be more stable and increased.
● Cost Effective Solutions
The well-designed system is able to provide solutions for increasing productivity while reducing the producing cost. The specially designed fully validated and factory tested solutions would help to reduce the commissioning and site acceptance cost.
● Comprehensive Solution
Not only providing the latest protection, control, automation technology with advanced communications, security and interoperability, this system can also link to the multi-vendor products and subsystems worked in the past time.
By applying the conventional control system to the factory, the productivity would be increased while the cost would be reduced. This is the biggest benefit the manufacturers would like to see. However, besides the main profit, there are also some values that a conventional control system can bring.
● Modular Panels and Cubicles
The system can provide multiple modular solutions that are repetitive, pre-configured, pre-wired and tested. These solutions are ideal for applying on the simple repetitive applications, such as feeder protection and control, transformer monitoring solution and generator protection.
● Engineered Solutions
For dealing with complex generation, transmission, distribution and automation applications, the conventional control system is able to provide engineered solutions to solve these tasks. Moreover, the solutions this system provides are all fully engineered, wired, tested, integrated solutions ready for site testing and commissioning.
● Retrofit Solutions
The conventional control system provides pre-engineered retrofit solutions that are specially designed for traditional automation protection and control devices including DGP, ALPS, LPS, DLP and other legacy multi-vendor P&C products.
The pre-wired and pre-terminated modules can be integrated, tested and commissioned at any timing.
● Project Solutions
The conventional control system can help to generate protection and control engineering and design and engineered conventional control solutions. Moreover, special project requirements such as commissioning and site testing support for protection, control and automation applications are able to be dealt with by the conventional control system.
