Modern day naval ships have comprehensive platform automation capabilities that allow them to achieve unprecedented levels of ship survivability and operational effectiveness. Integrating these capabilities at the platform level can optimise operational effectiveness and capabilities of the crew. IPMS (Integrated Platform Management System) uses world-class distributed architecture control with Dual Redundant Gigabit Network. Control & Monitoring of Gas Turbine Aggregates (GTA) is a unique feature of IPMS. The system is interfaced with Gas Turbines & Gear Box supplied by M/s Zorya Mashproekt, Ukraine.
Our IPMS - a VME based control system designed as per Naval requirements complying to Naval standards - is provided to carry out control and monitoring of Propulsion System, Auxiliary Propulsion System, Other Machineries, Power Generation and Distribution System. It is designed to provide training to ship’s crew without affecting real time data acquisition and processing. The data from various sensors and other machineries is collected by the Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) – fitted with I/O cards, VME cards, processed and dumped on the dual redundant network (Naval standard). The consoles – loaded with HMI with multicoloured mimic pages as per ship’s mechanical systems capture the processed data and display at the respective location.
The Primary Control location is Machinery Control Room and secondary control location is bridge. Further, control & monitoring is feasible from other standalone consoles. The IPMS is also interfaced with the Auto Power Management System and shares limited data with Integrated Bridge System.
The drop in plates for the propulsion machineries located at the Bridge and the MCR provide control and monitoring of the propulsion train (FPP/CPP). CPP is controlled with FU and NFU modes. The hardwired drop in plate is replicated in the software along with seamless control transfer between hardwired drop in plate and software based control logic. Control from Multi-Function Consoles (MFCs) is protected through multiple levels of passwords.
VME based control system complying IEEE 1101.2-1995 & ANSI/VITA20-2001.
Low Data Latency Time to ensure rapid update of equipment parameters and fast transfer of control signals
Consoles are designed as per ABS class requirement considering ergonomics and operator requirements. Consoles are customized as per customers’ requirements. L&T has successfully supplied more than 200+ consoles of various sizes including IP56 Wing Consoles, Integrated Bridge Consoles, Standalone consoles, etc.
Dual Redundant Fibre Optic Based 100 Mbps Network with Managed Switches. BITE facility is available up to PCB level.
