ARS AMEG 30xx simulator – training system represents simulation of the technological process and distributed control system of the thermal power plant.

Simulator of the thermal power plant and DCS is an example of modern computer power in energetics, which can be found in only a few companies in the world. Training system realistically reflects the physical system behavior of thermal power plant in all working regimes. ARS-AMEG simulator is very adjustable and configurable and can be extended and modified in accordance with equipment changes and user requirements.

The system is intended for:

  • DCS system testing (signalization checking, alarms, control, etc.),
  • Testing of the control-regulation logic before the implementation on the real system,
  • Training of those members of staff who are in charge of plant operation by using SCADA computer systems, while real plant equipment is not being compromised,
  • Analysis of state of the plant in all operating conditions,
  • Optimization of the system performance in the corresponding conditions of thermal power plant,
  • The main benefit of the system is the fact that all manipulative operations of the DCS are preserved while the operator still gets the experience of working on a real system. Staff-training on simulators significantly increases the stability level during plant operation.

Formal requirements of the ARS AMEG simulator

The structure and functionality of the ARS system AMEG 30xx simulator is based on the recommendations defined in ANSI / ISA-77.20.01-2012 Fossil Fuel Power Plant Simulators – Functional Requirements.

Components of the ARS AMEG simulator

ARS AMEG 30xx simulator is modular, allowing different installation and functionality variants, depending on the complexity of the desired system in order to meet user’s requirements. Concept of the ARS AMEG simulator is based on a software-in-loop simulation process.
