Switchgear Simulators for Renewable Energy Facilities and Microgrids

Siemens USA power systems business Russelectric has launched a range of switchgear simulators for training personnel in the operation of its control solutions for critical facilities and microgrids.

 
Customized to mimic the operation of the customer’s Russelectric® switchgear/system, Russelectric simulators are ideal for familiarizing workers on the system and its operation and for accurately diagnosing a wide range of utility, generator, and breaker problems. The simulators can also be used to assess the impact of changes to PLC setpoints such as kW values and time delays. Using the simulators enables operators to evaluate an almost limitless number of responses to failure scenarios and use the information to develop and validate site operating and emergency procedures.


The new simulators are available in two versions. The Russelectric Training Simulator allows personnel to train on the automatic operation of Russelectric Switchgear, while the Russelectric Advanced Training Simulator allows personnel to train on both manual and automatic operations. With the addition of hard-wired controls and interlock circuits, the simulator PLC accurately mimics full manual controls, enabling personnel to train in the comfort and safety of an office environment.
