Simulator Reference Instrumentation, Controls & Electrical

SPPA-S3000 Simulator offers an exact simulation of the power plant with the original human-machine interface (HMI) of the SPPA-T3000 Control System and emulation of the automation layer and the process model, making it a highly valuable tool for both basic and advanced training of power plant personnel. The Plant The lignite-fired power plant operated by RWE Power AG in Niederaussem is one of the largest power plants in Germany. The plants 600-MW unit G was equipped with the SPPA-T3000 Control System as part of a plant retrofit in 2008. The Task The transition from a conventional compact control room to a screen-based control room necessitated by this modernization required thorough training of the plant operators. It was provided directly at the plant during commissioning. In line with a continuous improvement process it is important to provide ongoing training for employees in safe operation of the newly installed I&C system and control of faults and run-back events. Here, the greater the accuracy with which the specific properties of the real plant are simulated, the more successful the learning effect. Our Solution The new I&C system of the reference unit G was emulated 1:1 in the SPPA-S3000 Simulator using real engineering data. This was accomplished using the original SPPA-T3000 HMI and emulation of the automation layer, including the process model that was provided. KRAFTWERKSSCHULE E.V. (KWS) successfully conducted the training sessions at the RWE training center in Niederaussem. The simulator

The Result

Higher availability thanks to


safe and reliable handling of the new SPPA-T3000 Control System

Increased safety due to


qualified employees who are prepared for faults and runback events

now behaves exactly like the real power plant during operation all the details on the screen are the same as those in the actual control room. Every fault and every operating condition of the plant can be repeated as often as necessary until all reactions and procedures have been mastered. The personnel thus become practiced in reacting quickly and reliably in a crisis situation and are optimally prepared for even the most exceptional situations. The training opportunities range from simple daily warm-ups to an intensive course for training responses during normal start-up, shutdown and load operation and in the event of faulted conditions practice-oriented, thorough and absolutely risk-free. It allows plant operators to be trained according to requirements, directly at the plant and based on plant-specific behavior. This considerably reduces the required scope of training.

Reduced costs thanks to


shorter training times, fewer unit outages and savings in equipment

Given todays power generation requirements, the deployment of state-of-the-art technology alone is nowhere near enough. Well-trained employees are the key to long-term success.
