Reliable, predictable plant operation for maximum performance: SPPA-T3000 helps power plant operators safeguard their business success – even as conditions in the energy industry become increasingly difficult and unforeseeable, and new challenges and opportunities demand speed and flexibility. SPPA-T3000 was developed by power plant experts for power plant experts. We gained a great deal of experience from the design of our fleet that is installed across the globe. And we have incorporated all this knowledge into our SPPA-T3000 control system.
The stability of proven technology combined with continuous innovation: The current Release 8.2 is the result of the consistent evolution of Siemens’ DCS for power generation. You benefit from a long-term support release that includes new features such as central patch deployment, online updates, new hardware, and all sorts of cybersecurity equipment. Safeguard your plant’s operation for years to come.
In traditional control systems, different subsystems are provided – each designed for a specific task. The concept of Embedded Component Services in SPPA-T3000 eliminates subsystems. It is object-oriented and keeps data consistent. All information on individual process components is integrated into a data object – from engineering, operation, and diagnostics to alarming and archiving.
SPPA-T3000 is based on a client/server architecture. All the levels are separated from one another, with protocol changes between the field, automation, application, and operation and monitoring levels. The system’s specific security zone architecture is based on this. Communication within the system is in complete conformity with common industry standards.
Siemens develops durable systems and supports them for the entire lifetime of a power plant. Concepts for participation in innovative developments are an integral part of our system development from day one. With SPPA-T3000, you can run different generations of control systems in parallel. This gives you the flexibility to tailor lifecycle concepts to your requirements. Innovations and technical advances are designed to be integrated without system changes – for long-term stability due to a future-proof system.
The modular, compact SIMATIC ET 200SP HA I/O system supports the entire range of I/O functions for power plant automation. It is connected via PROFINET to the AS-S7 automation server or to the AS3000, which in Release 8.2 is based on new hardware.
The CS3000 communication server hardware has also been renewed. You can rely on high-performance processing units required by demanding automation tasks and closed-loop controls as well as a design that withstands harsh environmental conditions. Therefore, you’ll be on the safe side over the long term.
SPPA-T3000 is ideal for large fossil-fueled power stations. Complex systems with several tens of thousands of I/Os deserve an integrated automation and optimized process control that get the most out of a plant. The strengths of our control system pay off – in engineering as well as in safe, reliable operation.
In industrial plants, generating electricity and heat on-site is increasingly rewarding. Installations from five to 250 MW contribute to energy independence and to a flexible, on-demand supply. Once again, SPPA-T3000 plays to its strengths: efficient and reliable automation with optimal integration into the overall plant.
Siemens is continuously developing security features for SPPA-T3000. Current features include:
Current hardware is supported on a long-term basis and provided with security patches that have been tried and tested. Deployed from the central Security Server, installation of the patches is possible at any time during operation. For you, this means long-term security – with no downtime.
Operate your plant reliably and predictably. Benefit from improved performance in operation. Be flexible, resilient, and prepared for future challenges and opportunities. We’ll be happy to demonstrate the benefits of SPPA-T3000. for your plant. Find out more from our technical documentation and feel free to contact us.
