Progen's Control System 2100TM is an incredibly advanced engine controls and alarm system that incorporates over 20 years of continued improvements focused on an intense commitment to provide the absolute best asset protection through advanced conditions monitoring.
Control System 2100 is a predictive and preemptive real time continuous controls and monitoring system that provides unmatched protection of the engine/generator operating systems and provides a master power plant control system with full function remote controls and monitoring of the entire power plant operating systems
This is not a standard OEM alarm panel. We have incorporated over 25 years of power generation equipment manufacturing and in field operations experience into the operating philosophy of the Control System 2100. The system is intentionally designed to offer the most advanced protection of generation equipment operating in remote and harsh duty operating environments.
The system is designed to provide maximum protection, even better than having the most experienced mechanical and electrical technician sitting next to the unit 24 hours a day. This is because they cannot see inside the unit 24 hours a day. Control System 2100 can, with continuous monitoring devices at critical places in the engine, generator and switchgear that are continuously monitored and analyzed.
The “Predictive” and Preventative features of the system are the key to increased reliability of the generation equipment not found in typical OEM controls/alarm systems. It provides increased run time with less unnecessary wear and tear on the engine due to excessive running of the equipment in less than peak operating conditions typical with standard OEM alarms/controls systems.
Control System 2100 continuously trends and analyzes operating conditions of the generation equipment and alarms the operator of any pending abnormalities in the engine, generator, auxiliaries and associated electrical operating systems that require attention and correction prior to becoming a major failure and preventing possible major damages.
Once an abnormality has been identified, the system offers the operator a list possible causes for the abnormality allowing the operator to inspect for the typical causes. In addition, it suggests various measures to correct the abnormalities once the cause has been confirmed by the operator. In most cases, this feature allows the operator to schedule a shutdown of the equipment in an organized manner in order to make the repair/s, instead of experiencing a forced outage which can be costly.
This feature provides real dollar saving value in several ways. First, it prevents the cost of major damage. This means that major cost in materials and labor to effect major repairs are avoided. Second, the unit downtime is reduced.
kW production receives maximum protection while allowing the operator to “schedule in” a shutdown while possibly raising the output of other units to standby output as this unit is being reduced in output and shut down for repair.
Once the operator has confirmed the root cause utilizing the Control System guides, they are given a list tools required to effect the repairs and step by instructions on how to make the repairs, along with the list of the required replacement parts with part numbers and associated materials required complete to the repairs.
Progen's Control System 2100TM prevents unforeseen unnecessary premature degradation of the engine and eliminates forced outage incidents and catastrophic failures. We prove it and guarantee it.
