On-Site Power Systems

Low and Medium Voltage Paralleling Switchgear and Controls up to 15kV

IEM Power Systems offers high quality Low and Medium Voltage Paralleling Switchgear up to 15kV

Our flexible approach allows for various configurations of equipment and controls. System options include multiple generators with gas or diesel reciprocating engines, gas or steam turbines, hydraulic turbines, or wind turbines as prime movers. Switchgear may be single or three-phase, 50 or 60Hz, and rated up to 15kV, meeting or exceeding all relevant standards.

Whatever your needs are, IEM Power Systems have the expertise to deliver your safe, efficient and reliable Paralleling Switchgear system.

Applications:

  • Emergency Standby
  • Prime Power
  • Base Load
  • Peak Shaving
  • Co-generation
  • Resource Recovery

Whatever your needs, IEMPS can provide the expertise to design and build the controls for your system to operate efficiently and reliably.

The IEM Power Systems On-Site Power solution utilizes fully integrated data acquisition and control systems to ensure effective and efficient operation of your system at all times.

The control system can be accessed via a simple touch screen HMI and/or integrated with your facilities BMS. Visual and audible warnings ensure that issues are detected early and acted upon before they effect the operation of the On-Site Power system.

IEM Power Systems control systems can be customized to your exact requirements and remote monitoring is available to allow selective viewing of real-time system operation for management teams as well as maintenance and diagnostic purposes.

IEM Power Systems will custom design your control system to include elements as required:

  • Touch-Screen PC/PLC control
  • Generator Paralleling
  • Utility Paralleling
  • Data Acquisition
  • System Integration
  • Instrumentation
  • Status Annunciation
  • Remote Monitoring

On-Site Power systems, sometimes known as distributed power systems, are employed effectively by industries around the world in a variety of scenarios:

Emergency Standby

Emergency Standby systems typically consist of one or more generators with an automatic starting system and a transfer switch to connect the generator(s) to the load.

The generators are utilized only when commercial power fails. Many owners are realizing that this “standby” equipment can be put into more constant service and save thousands of dollars in utility costs.

Ask how IEM Power Systems can help you turn a fixed asset into a cost-saving or even a revenue-producing asset.

Prime Power

Prime Power systems provide all the power for a given installation. There is no normal connection with commercial power. In some cases the utility might serve as emergency standby to the on-site prime power system. IEM Power Systems can provide the basic controls required for this relatively simple system.

Base Load

Base Load systems use the on-site power generation equipment to provide for the constant, essential, and continuous loads. Commercial power is imported to handle peak and variable loads. IEM Power Systems' synchronizing and paralleling switchgear along with import/export controls and utility protective relaying provide a fully integrated and reliable system.

Peak Shaving

Peak Shaving applications use the on-site power generation equipment to handle variable loads above a given maximum level or peak. This helps the customer avoid costly “demand” charges from the utility company. IEM Power Systems' synchronizing and paralleling switchgear along with import / export controls and utility protective relaying provide a fully integrated and reliable system.

Co-generation

Co-generation systems may use the electrical power in any of the above arrangements and they recover useful heat energy from the prime movers exhaust and cooling systems. This heat may be used directly in a manufacturing process, space heating and air conditioning, or to drive additional electric generating equipment.

Resource Recovery

Resource Recovery systems capture an otherwise wasted fuel source such as landfill or digester gases to run electrical generating equipment. Generated power is used to run the plant itself with surplus power being exported to the commercial grid. IEM Power Systems' synchronizing and paralleling switchgear along with import/export controls and utility protective relaying provide a fully integrated and reliable system.

Whether you are employing on-site power to guarantee a stable power supply for your facility, to provide your own base load power or peak-shaving capability, IEM Power Systems can design an O-Site Power system to meet your needs.

Additionally, we can integrate CHP elements into your new or existing system to further reduce energy costs and improve your facility’s environmental sustainability.
