IB Asia and Merus Power upgrade at Millcon Burapa SVC

admin Jun, 21, 2018

IB Asia and Merus Power successfully carried out a major upgrade at Millcon Burapa SVC. The existing control and protection system was replaced and a 5th harmonic filter added in conjunction with Millcon Burapa increasing the melt shop power with a new 86.4 MVA transformer. The new control and protection system was designed based on the revised system design carried out by Merus according to the updated plant configuration.

The Core of Merus Power integrated protection and control system is high performance DSP / FPGA board. Control algorithms, incorporating the outcome of years of research and development work in the field of ultra-fast STATCOM control systems, are developed and fine-tuned for optimal flicker mitigation with fast variable loads, electric arc furnace in particular.
