Mitsubishi Electric offers solutions from field level right up to supervisory level, including both DCS and SCADA technologies for the most effective plant management platforms including:
- Virtual Power Plant Control
- Hybrid Power Plant Control
- Remote Monitoring and Control of renewable and conventional power generation assets
Further, providing the ability for operators to integrate and balance a range of different power sources, Mitsubishi Electric takes tools such as PMSX®pro DCS and the Mitsubishi Adroit Process Suite (MAPS) life-cycle software and combines these with other MV and control technologies to link individual electricity sources in a virtual power plant.
Addressing the impact of the introduction of renewables, the ageing of large power plants and the instability of oil and gas prices, the virtual and hybrid power plants provide an effective system to balance numerous variables in order to achieve an overall more predictable, economic and reliable supply system, with faster and more flexible response to fluctuations in the availability of different energy sources with the least cost possible.
