COPA-DATA - Energy Automation Solutions White Papers

COPA-DATA - Energy Automation Solutions

Management of Wind Parks and Photovoltaic Farms with zenon This white paper is designed to provide ideas for a farm management system that benefits from the whole zenon product family. In doing so, all areas are considered, from the energy generation device through to a supra-regional evaluation system. COPA-DATA, an independent provider of automation software makes it possible, with the zenon product family, to implement a system throughout that offers individual, tailor-made solutions from the PLC through to reporting.

Renewable Energy and Cyber Security Following COPA-DATA‟s first two articles about Smart Grids, we will review two more topics in this white paper. Firstly, the very current topic of renewable energies - which has received an additional boost as a result of the current discussions about nuclear power. And secondly, the topic of cyber security in the Smart Grid.

The Smart Grid in the Medium and Low Voltage Level In the last article, “Smart Grid Part 1”, we looked at the topic of how zenon can be involved with the provision of data to superordinate monitoring bodies. In this article, we look at the Smart Grid from the substation to the end consumer - the medium and low voltage area.

Smart Grids, Telecontrol and the New Standards After gaining significance in the American market, the concept of a Smart Grid is becoming increasingly important to European consumers. Today‟s efforts to use energy efficiently require different tasks to be accomplished. Electricity will no longer be simply provided to consumers; consumers are also feeding it back into the grid. Energy highways must be designed for flow in both directions. Energy suppliers will have to integrate many small producers into their power generation.

Topology: How Coloring and Logic Ensure a Clear Overview and Improved Security Security rightly has uppermost priority in the energy sector. Misunderstandings, unauthorized actions or incorrect operations can be fatal in the direct vicinity of electrical current and can jeopardize supply. Therefore, it is all the more important to adopt systems that enable the user to have a clear overview of energy grids and the processes related to them. Topological coloring is an effective tool when creating the required overview within energy applications.

Trouble-Free Exchange of Data Between Control System and Substation COPA-DATA expertise: DNP3 and zenon. Drivers and interfaces are considered an essential link between the individual components within a process control system. Without the corresponding protocols, trouble-free communication and exchange of data would be unthinkable. To find out more please download this free white paper.
