The Electrical Control System (ECS) in GASCO Habshan-5

Power Automation Solutions

Abstract: Electrical Control System (ECS) helps to secure a stable, reliable and steady electrical power supply as it helps in preventing blackouts and disturbances of plant operations thereby contributed in optimization of electrical network. GASCO Habshan-5 is the only Oil and gas plant in the world where ECS system is successfully commissioned with all features in such a mega scale and the same are working up to the complete satisfaction. In GASCO Habshan-5, the architecture of the Electrical Control System is based upon ABB’s state-of-art solution 800xA control platform. The system is interfaced with ABB make protection relays for HV, MV and LV switchgears as well as the GE generator protection relays via IEC61850 protocol and with remaining third party equipment via Modbus RTU, or TCP providing a truly integrated and complete ECS package.

Electrical Control System has been specifically designed for:

A. Power Management (Load Management and Load Shedding):

  • Fast Acting Load Shedding
  • Under Frequency Load Shedding
  • Active and Reactive Power Control
  • Frequency and Voltage Control
  • Synchronization
B. Supervision, Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) also called SCMS and IPCS:
  • Dynamic Power System Overview
  • Fault diagnostics and Trends
Habshan-5’s experience on the present ECS system is beyond the satisfaction level as it has contributed in successful saving of plant on several occasions (disturbances) in last two years as well as it has become a prime diagnosis tool for any failure/incident analysis.
