Smart MCC and PLC Control System
Gulf South Gas Distribution Plant,
A Gulf South gas distribution plant hired MSB to develop a PLC based control system to interface to a Smart MCC via Modbus TCP/IP, processing and sending the system information to the natural gas processing plant's DCS system. This design created a central location within the control room for operators to view all relevant information from the MCC, such as current motor/pump loading, as well as the ability to control the MCC remotely. The PLC also provided shutdown protection, valve control, and motor control. MSB Electrical Power Department designed the MCC building, foundations and all interconnects to the existing sub-systems. MSB Instrumentation and Controls designed and implemented the PLC based control system.
