Generator Protection, Controls and SCADA Upgrade
H2E provided electrical and controls engineering to support the upgrade for Generators, Station Service, Pond control, Spillway/River control, Balance of Plant, Standby Power, Inverter Control and Battery System monitoring. These updates allowed for increased monitoring and control, both manually and remotely. H2E’s engineering designs included the development of General Arrangements, Demolition Drawings, One-lines, Three-lines, Wiring Diagrams, Schematics, Junction Boxes, Control Panels, I/O interface, Cable Block Diagrams, Cable/Conduit Schedule, Network drawing, P&IDs PLC & HMI H2E interfaced with the existing Governors, Exciters, Switchgear, Control Boards and instrumentation to design a modern interface with a legacy system. H2E updated all plant drawings, based on multiple site trips to as-built each facility during the engineering design of the hardwired control interface.
H2E also provided high-level project management that included the development and management of Project Scope, Schedule and Budget. H2E performed the Control Panel Factory Acceptance (FAT) testing, on-site construction oversight and performed as the lead on start-up and commissioning. To support the start- up and commissioning, H2E developed a Commissioning Test Plan. The Commissioning Test Plan provided a step by step procedure for testing each aspect affected by the upgrade and included sign offs from the engineer and the client.
