Elipse Software offers software solutions for Generation Operation Centers (GOC) from renewable sources like hydro, wind and photovoltaics, and also system retrofit for non-renewable sources as coal and gas.
Those are complex systems, which needs control and monitoring of hundreds of thousands variables, controlled by devices from different manufacturers, where it is necessary to offer not only safe and robust operation conditions, but also to perform data processing to obtain indicators and action suggestions to maximize asset ROI.
Solutions for Generation Operation Centers (GOCs), hydroelectric plants, thermoelectric plants, wind farms, and photovoltaic plants. Power generation processes involve two rather distinct domains: the mechanic one, which involves the machines working to generate power; and the electric one, which regards how energy will travel on the transmission lines. They are complex systems, which involve hundreds of thousands of variables, controlled by sensors and IEDs from different vendors.
Climatic uncertainty also plays a huge role in this matter. Hydroelectric plants’ reservoirs levels depend on rainfall, while photovoltaic plants depend on sunny days to maximize their generation efficiency. To monitor all the factors involved in these processes, you need a robust, flexible, reliable system.
Since the 1990s, Elipse Software has accumulated experience in automation processes, which makes the company the Brazilian leader and one of the world’s key players in SCADA systems for generation plants. Specialized in protocols, redundancy, advanced alarms, and other state-of-the-art features, Elipse is the main supplier of SCADA systems in connection to other hardware platforms, including ABB (Masterbus), Alstom (P320), GE, Rockwell, Siemens, and Reivax, among others.
Elipse E3 is used as a GMS (Generation Management System) in a great number of power plants of all types and sizes. This platform is also used in Generation Operation Centers (GOCs), with transparent connection to local plant supervisory systems, or via different energy protocols, such as DNP 3.0, IEC 101/104, and ICCP. It is also integrated to weather stations and forecast web services, which allow you to predict quite accurately the weather on the following days and thus help you support your strategic decisions.
Remote operation reduces costs for BEI, since control via Generation Operations Center (GOC) usually eliminates the need for actual trips to the plants
