Invensys supplies controls to Taiwan’s 1,088-MW Takuan

Taiwan Power Co. has selected Invensys Process Systems to supply a digital controls upgrade for the 1,088-MW Takuan pumped-storage project in Taiwan’s Nantau County.

Invensys said the I/A Series distributed control systems from Foxboro, its U.S.-based business unit, will utilize the Foxboro high-speed mesh control network to maximize system availability and reliability.

The new systems will control Takuan Plant 1 with four 22-MW generating units and Plant 2 with four 250-MW hydroelectric pumping units. The systems will drive several critical applications: automatic generation control, hydroelectric generation, hydroelectric dispatch, pumping/generation sequence and optimization, and events history.
