Operation
The power plant at your fingertips
The SPPA-T3000 operator interface is more than just operation and monitoring; the focus is on the man-
agement of information and data. All the functions necessary for plant operation or information access
are comprehensively integrated in the SPPA-T3000 Workbench. Real-time data displays, high-speed and
high-resolution process graphics, alarm screens and many other views simplify the review and analysis of
live and historical process data.
An overview of your plant and business
status from virtually anywhere
SPPA-T3000 offers the unique ability for operators, shift super-
visors, maintenance and service personnel to perform their
tasks from almost any workplace. The SPPA-T3000 Workbench
is designed to integrate all views for plant operations, modifica-
tions, tuning, configuration, I&C diagnostics or optimization.
Simply start the Workbench from any screen via an Internet
browser, and you can access Plant Displays, the Point View,
Function Diagrams or Diagnostics View depending on your
assigned role and access rights.
Simplified working procedures
When plant personnel need comprehensive information about
any individual device or function, the Point View offers all
information, including real-time values, configuration data,
parameters, etc., related to each individual object at the click
of a mouse. The Point View not only displays information, but
also provides the ability to perform operations, point forcing or
modifications from virtually every workplace.
The Workbench offers the different views to perform operation, engineering and
I&C diagnostics functions.
The Point View shows all data and information related to a tag in a clear format.
It also provides the ability to navigate to other views.
10
Customized displays for consistent, user-friendly and user-specific operation
User-specific desktops tailored to individual roles provide the right view for operation, maintenance, engineering, optimization or
management. You can customize the interface to meet your needs. Modifications can easily be made, right from the point where the
necessity is recognized, to configure online, change displays and modify settings.

Accelerated analysis helps ensure trouble-free
plant operation
During critical situations a quick and comprehensive overview
is essential. SPPA-T3000 provides a sophisticated alarm system
designed to enable operators to control any situation. The alarm
information, as well as the way in which it is displayed, is easily
customized. The trip report facilitates troubleshooting following
a plant incident. Reports can be generated automatically, and can
easily be adapted to meet any requirement. Also, generated
reports can be stored in standard printer format or in a commer-
cial spreadsheet format, such as pdf or csv, for further processing
in an office environment or at a later time.
Just a mouse click away one source for plant
optimization
SPPA-T3000 is designed to provide archiving of all information
throughout the plant lifetime. Reconstruction and analysis of
start-ups, trip events and plant equipment malfunctions are
possible. The information can be used for process optimization
and improvement of production in alignment with business
goals. Applications such as plant management, production
planning, expert systems and optimization programs can access
the archived data via standard interfaces.
This Alarm Sequence Displays (ASD) shows all alarms in a chronological
sequence. The plant topology on the left side supports fast navigations and
selections. Additionally, the ASD can be displayed in Alarm Point View, which
shows one line for all alarm types of an alarm source, including an alarm
counter.
This screenshot shows the call-up of a stored analog report. The same display
enables both the creation and generation of reports.

Power Server
Application Server and Automation Servers
are used for processing data and real-time
execution of the control algorithms.
User Interfaces
The highly available interconnection between
all components is realized by a standard
Ethernet network with TCP/IP. The access to the
process, and connection to the Power Services,
are provided by PROFIBUS DP field bus.
Process Interfaces
The interface to the process provides signal
conditioning and command output via I/O
modules or intelligent PROFIBUS DP field
devices.
SPPA-T3000
High reliability through intrinsic consistency of
configuration data
Traditional systems need complex translations or mapping
functions that try to achieve data consistency between the
different sub-systems. SPPA-T3000s Embedded Component
Services provide all I&C functions represented by single soft-
ware components. Every component includes its data intrinsi-
cally. This approach makes initial design and modifications much
easier because of a close relationship between the Engineering
View and the actual system state. So, there is an intrinsic consis-
tency between the HMI and the control logic. Operation and
Engineering are simply different views of the same data.
This window depicts the Spreadsheet Engineering layout which allows a user to edit bulk data.
Secure and instant changes under any plant
condition
SPPA-T3000s intuitive, user-friendly graphical interface can allow
immediate, cost-effective conversion of design, from task defini-
tion to implementation. Plant displays and functional diagrams
can be switched to Configuration Mode directly from any user
interface and can be modified by any user who has the appropri-
ate access rights. Comprehensive checks and logic testing are
possible before activating any changes. Changes can be activated
immediately, without further mapping, code generation or
download procedures.
Faster and easier changes, even for large data volumes
A list interface is provided for processing large amounts of configuration data. Simple selection, sorting or handling instructions are
executed by this integrated interface. For complex operations, the selected data scope can be exported and processed by conventional
methods (e.g., MS-EXCEL) and then re-imported to SPPA-T3000.
Fast online undo of last configuration changes
When modifying configurations, an image of the previous
version is automatically saved in the system. If the new configu-
ration does not work satisfactorily, the previous configuration
can be restored with a simple click. This functionality is indepen-
dent of redundant or non-redundant Automation Server designs.
Roll-back provides a significant advantage for maintenance and
service of the system, without the need for processor swap /
switch-over.

Engineering
Immediate online modifications
Today plant owners, independent power producers and architect engineers have to manage a huge
amount of project data and plant information. To be competitive in the power business, it is essential to
increase productivity and to reduce project preparation and maintenance time while minimizing costs.
To collect, store and manage information for the whole lifetime of a plant is a challenge easily met by
SPPA-T3000, due to its built-in data consistency and integrated engineering concepts.
Optimized design workflow
The traditional engineering and design process is characterized by a number of sequential steps to implement the control
configuration and create the plant displays. The engineering process is performed according to fixed rules and can be less flexible
and more time consuming.
Principle differences between the traditional engineering process with separated subsystems and the integrated engineering in SPPA-T3000.
SPPA-T3000 offers an integrated engineering approach for
the implementation of control configuration and plant display
design. Every process element is represented by a related
software component that represents not only the traditional
automation functionality, but also functionality for operating
and monitoring, alarming, engineering and I&C diagnostics.
Integrated engineering assigns the respective application data
down to a single process object performing control and display
information cohesively. The engineering can be optimized
and scheduled according to technological plant process require-
ments regardless of whether the control logic or the HMI
representation is engineered. The engineering process becomes
optimized and can be tailored to meet individual business
process requirements.

Engineering
Immediate online modifications
Today plant owners, independent power producers and architect engineers have to manage a huge
amount of project data and plant information. To be competitive in the power business, it is essential to
increase productivity and to reduce project preparation and maintenance time while minimizing costs.
To collect, store and manage information for the whole lifetime of a plant is a challenge easily met by
SPPA-T3000, due to its built-in data consistency and integrated engineering concepts.
Optimized design workflow
The traditional engineering and design process is characterized by a number of sequential steps to implement the control
configuration and create the plant displays. The engineering process is performed according to fixed rules and can be less flexible
and more time consuming.
Principle differences between the traditional engineering process with separated subsystems and the integrated engineering in SPPA-T3000.
SPPA-T3000 offers an integrated engineering approach for
the implementation of control configuration and plant display
design. Every process element is represented by a related
software component that represents not only the traditional
automation functionality, but also functionality for operating
and monitoring, alarming, engineering and I&C diagnostics.
Integrated engineering assigns the respective application data
down to a single process object performing control and display
information cohesively. The engineering can be optimized
and scheduled according to technological plant process require-
ments regardless of whether the control logic or the HMI
representation is engineered. The engineering process becomes
optimized and can be tailored to meet individual business
process requirements.

User Interfaces
Thin Clients are the window to the process
and present information regarding engineer-
ing, operation and diagnostics. These are
standard PCs running with just a Web browser.
Power Server
Application Server and Automation Servers
are used for processing data and real-time
execution of the control algorithms.
User Interfaces
The highly available interconnection between
all components is realized by a standard
Ethernet network with TCP/IP. The access to the
process, and connection to the Power Services,
are provided by PROFIBUS DP field bus.
Process Interfaces
The interface to the process provides signal
conditioning and command output via I/O
modules or intelligent PROFIBUS DP field
devices.
SPPA-T3000
High reliability through intrinsic consistency of
configuration data
Traditional systems need complex translations or mapping
functions that try to achieve data consistency between the
different sub-systems. SPPA-T3000s Embedded Component
Services provide all I&C functions represented by single soft-
ware components. Every component includes its data intrinsi-
cally. This approach makes initial design and modifications much
easier because of a close relationship between the Engineering
View and the actual system state. So, there is an intrinsic consis-
tency between the HMI and the control logic. Operation and
Engineering are simply different views of the same data.
This window depicts the Spreadsheet Engineering layout which allows a user to edit bulk data.
Secure and instant changes under any plant
condition
SPPA-T3000s intuitive, user-friendly graphical interface can allow
immediate, cost-effective conversion of design, from task defini-
tion to implementation. Plant displays and functional diagrams
can be switched to Configuration Mode directly from any user
interface and can be modified by any user who has the appropri-
ate access rights. Comprehensive checks and logic testing are
possible before activating any changes. Changes can be activated
immediately, without further mapping, code generation or
download procedures.
Faster and easier changes, even for large data volumes
A list interface is provided for processing large amounts of configuration data. Simple selection, sorting or handling instructions are
executed by this integrated interface. For complex operations, the selected data scope can be exported and processed by conventional
methods (e.g., MS-EXCEL) and then re-imported to SPPA-T3000.
Fast online undo of last configuration changes
When modifying configurations, an image of the previous
version is automatically saved in the system. If the new configu-
ration does not work satisfactorily, the previous configuration
can be restored with a simple click. This functionality is indepen-
dent of redundant or non-redundant Automation Server designs.
Roll-back provides a significant advantage for maintenance and
service of the system, without the need for processor swap /
switch-over.

SPPA-T3000 system architecture
Simplified system architecture eliminates sub-systems
6
SPPA-T3000 combines the reliability of proven, real-time process controllers with new technologies
to establish a simple and robust platform. The system is designed to provide real-time data at the
right place, at the right time to give power plant owners and operators the information they need
to make the right decisions, thus improving their ability to be competitive. The SPPA-T3000 process
control system is developed based on the needs of todays power plants with an integrated system
architecture for all automation tasks, from engineering and commissioning to operation and
diagnostics. This approach results in system architecture that simplifies the system structure and
eliminates the need for the required sub-systems as used in traditional control systems.

User Interfaces
Thin Clients are the window to the process
and present information regarding engineer-
ing, operation and diagnostics. These are
standard PCs running with just a Web browser.
Power Server
Application Server and Automation Servers
are used for processing data and real-time
execution of the control algorithms.
User Interfaces
The highly available interconnection between
all components is realized by a standard
Ethernet network with TCP/IP. The access to the
process, and connection to the Power Services,
are provided by PROFIBUS DP field bus.
Process Interfaces
The interface to the process provides signal
conditioning and command output via I/O
modules or intelligent PROFIBUS DP field
devices.
SPPA-T3000
High reliability through intrinsic consistency of
configuration data
Traditional systems need complex translations or mapping
functions that try to achieve data consistency between the
different sub-systems. SPPA-T3000s Embedded Component
Services provide all I&C functions represented by single soft-
ware components. Every component includes its data intrinsi-
cally. This approach makes initial design and modifications much
easier because of a close relationship between the Engineering
View and the actual system state. So, there is an intrinsic consis-
tency between the HMI and the control logic. Operation and
Engineering are simply different views of the same data.
This window depicts the Spreadsheet Engineering layout which allows a user to edit bulk data.
Secure and instant changes under any plant
condition
SPPA-T3000s intuitive, user-friendly graphical interface can allow
immediate, cost-effective conversion of design, from task defini-
tion to implementation. Plant displays and functional diagrams
can be switched to Configuration Mode directly from any user
interface and can be modified by any user who has the appropri-
ate access rights. Comprehensive checks and logic testing are
possible before activating any changes. Changes can be activated
immediately, without further mapping, code generation or
download procedures.
Faster and easier changes, even for large data volumes
A list interface is provided for processing large amounts of configuration data. Simple selection, sorting or handling instructions are
executed by this integrated interface. For complex operations, the selected data scope can be exported and processed by conventional
methods (e.g., MS-EXCEL) and then re-imported to SPPA-T3000.
Fast online undo of last configuration changes
When modifying configurations, an image of the previous
version is automatically saved in the system. If the new configu-
ration does not work satisfactorily, the previous configuration
can be restored with a simple click. This functionality is indepen-
dent of redundant or non-redundant Automation Server designs.
Roll-back provides a significant advantage for maintenance and
service of the system, without the need for processor swap /
switch-over.

I&C Diagnostics
Get a consistent view of your plant data
SPPA-T3000 is designed to provide integral, continuous monitoring of system components and equip-
ment. Status overviews are generated of each component in the I&C Diagnostics View. Troubleshooting
and reports used for preventive maintenance can help reduce system downtime, optimize the repair and
maintenance processes and reduce operation costs. Relevant I&C diagnostics information can be trans-
mitted to the unit and enterprise level and can be used to create or optimize maintenance strategies.
Typical Workbench for diagnostics purposes with the I&C Diagnostics View on right bottom, online Function Diagram (left side) and a Faceplate (with buttons and
status indications) for operation if requested.
