Control system design
GL Garrad Hassan is the industry leader for the design of turbine control systems and development of multivariable control algorithms which alleviate turbine structural loads and optimize energy capture.
Implementation services include provision of fully functional turbine controllers which run on either PLC or industrial PC platforms, and deliver a range of field bus protocols and low level I/O hardware options. The implementation of prototype controllers is conducted in close collaboration with clients, and includes significant technology transfer and training wherever appropriate, so that the client is able to take the controller into series production following commissioning and verification of the prototype. Specification documents that cover the entire implementation process, including hardware processing, comms and I/O, HMI & SCADA interfaces, supervisory control states and alarm logic are always provided.
