Advances in technology have made utility automation and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) applications more widespread and affordable. At POWER Engineers, we help you take advantage of the latest technologies in a system tailored to your needs.
We offer a complete package of design, protection, interface, and automation services, unbiased equipment assessments and specifications, customer interfaces, and integration. Before getting started, we gain a clear understanding of your needs and challenges. We draw on a thorough knowledge of historic, current and emerging technologies to design a solution that is customized to your needs. Our range extends from simple RTU additions and replacements to high performance substation HMIs and fully integrated substations. We have experience with many vendor platforms and approaches along with the tools to develop, test, and commission your solution.
We know one size doesn’t fit all. New technology and standards are stretching the limits of what is feasible in a substation. POWER Engineers is right in the thick of the latest approaches, helping our clients understand the migration of legacy systems, extending the life of viable system components and replacing those that are no longer viable, and applying the latest Ethernet network technologies and designs. Our independence allows us to select equipment and architectures that best meet your needs.
Integrated Protection and Control
With proficiency in both substation SCADA and protection engineering, we strive to develop protection control systems that protect your power system and deliver the information you need to make smart operating decisions — all in one integrated package.
From design to energization, our approach provides opportunities to reduce cost, enhance performance and security, and simplify the system.
