L&T showcases smart solutions in power distribution & control
he Electrical & Automation (E&A) business of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) unveiled state-of-the-art SCADA solution on a standardised platform for the seamless integration of Medium Voltage (MV) and Low Voltage (LV) products that go into industry, infrastructure and the building segments, a release from L&T said.
SmartComm fetches data from connected devices, processes and presents information to users on screens. It generates reports and trends according to user selection for different data. It can generate alarms and alerts for the users to take appropriate action as well as send commands to devices as required.
SmartComm is capable of providing Energy Management solution because of its built-in features of Energy Monitoring and Energy Billing. This will benefit user with possible energy savings and thus the cost optimization. With Building Automation and Management functionality, it can be used to manage smaller to larger and multioccupant facilities. With its wide range of devices and protocols support, SmartComm is futuristically developed to extend its functionality to address the Smart Grid and Smart Cities requirements.
IEC 61439 is the latest international standard for switchgear assemblies. E&A has showcased solutions such as the Power Control Centre, Motor Control Centre, Main Distribution Board, Sub Main Distribution Board, Final Distribution Board and Busbar Trunking System that conform to the latest standards.
E&A also presented a suite of software products for improving productivity. These software and mobile apps support in electrical design, switchgear selection and selection for motor control with drives or DOL/Star Delta Starters.
TThe display included Power Quality Solutions for reactive power management and harmonic mitigation using a range of power factor correction capacitors, passive and active filters, aluminium or copper reactors, etc.
Smart Switchboards: Highlighting reliability, flexibility and compactness, E&A displayed its MV and LV switchgear assembly ranging up to 40kV as the just perfect solution for the substations. The compact and modular feeders offer smart solutions with minimum footprint. These are certified by internationally recognised agencies like ASTAIntertek, CESI, KEMA. Expressing smart in design, the TERA panel on display, and offer patented double deck holeless busbar system that increases efficiency. In-built safety interlock is another highlight of these panels. E&A displayed substation automation system integrated with MV and LV solutions.
