Mapna Automation and Process Control System Scalability Test Platform (MAPCS1) and Mapna Group’s Remote Desktop Connection Powerhouse Monitoring System (RDC) were inaugurated in MAPNA Electric & Control Engineering & Manufacturing Company (MEKO). Mapna Automation and Process Control System Scalability Test Platform (MAPCS1) and Mapna Group’s Remote Desktop Connection Powerhouse Monitoring System (RDC) were tested and their technical characteristics, construction mechanisms and advantages over foreign samples were described on the day of inauguration (Saturday, 16th of June) attended by Dr. Abbas Ali Abadi, CEO of the MAPNA Group.
The provision of a Scalability Test Platform for Mapna Automation and Process Control System (MAPCS1) enables us to not only test the reaction of this system in an integrated, wide-ranging and highly complex system but also the functional boundaries of the system by increasing the workload both in terms of processing and the volume of related elements and equipment as well as the efficiency improvement as a result of the development of its resources. Also, the dimensions of the MAPCS1 system are designed to assure users of the optimal operation of the system and ensure the appropriate performance of this local system. In addition, an Energy Saving System (ESS) and a Static Stimulation System (branded as MAPEX) were also unveiled at the event.
Energy Saving Systems (ESS’s) form one of the most important areas for research and investment by leading power companies in the world. These systems, which have home, powerhouse and industrial applications, are able to save electricity at normal times and feed them to the power consumption network in cases of power failure or peak consumption.
Parand Power Plant’s Control System Performance Testing (Benchmark Testing) System was also visited at the event at MECO.
MECO’s Benchmark Testing System is a dynamic tester that provides the ability to test control systems in power plants, refineries and petrochemicals using a software simulation of the process under control.
By conduct a real-life simulation of power plant systems and numerous tests, some of which cannot be conducted in real conditions, the benchmark testing system of Parand Power Plant aims at testing and verifying the MAPCS control system in the steam cycle in terms of hardware and software reliability.
The CEO of the MAPNA Group and his accompanying board also visited the wind turbine laboratory and the wind turbine simulator designed by Mapna Specialists as well as the SMT (cleanroom) section and the most advanced electrical design and manufacturing technology. Subsequently, Dr. Aliabadi paid a visit to the new products of the MAPCS division and unveiled the latest achievements in the field of the localization of the Automation and Process Control System such as the Data-Diode Security System, the designing of Data Backup and Archiving Software (MAPAS) and SCADA and Data Collection System (MAPCS-R).
At the end of the visit to MECO, the CEO of the MAPNA Group inaugurated the Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Center for MAPNA Thermal and Wind Power Plants. The Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Center for MAPNA Power Plants uses the latest world technology to collect data and monitor the status of equipment such as gas turbines, wind turbines, generators and transmissions remotely and smartly. The achievements of the design, construction and commissioning of the center in the economic area include increased life span of expensive power plant components, increased availability and increased production, reduced power outages caused by equipment failure, optimization of shutdown times for maintenance operations, reduced fuel consumption and increased plant efficiency.
Given that the technologies used in this area are up-to-date, achieving these technologies will help MAPNA to rank among the leading companies in the field of providing services and after-sales services. It certainly will increase the export of engineering services and increase the possibility of marketing and selling the company’s products in other countries and thus will prevent the expenditure of capital on purchasing these technologies from foreign countries.
By using the services of the Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Center and in line with the policies of the Passive Defense Organization, it becomes possible to prevent the leakage of confidential information on pieces of plant equipment and to continuously monitor the software and industrial networks of the power plant. Reducing the use of fossil fuels and preventing environmental pollution are among the direct social consequences of using monitoring and diagnostics systems. Also, the deployment of renowned and specialized experts for designing the technologies required by the center will stimulate the vitality of the scientific community and the elites of the country and will increase the hope for a brighter future for the youth of our homeland.
