Russelectric, a manufacturer of power control systems and automatic transfer switches, has announced the availability of Switchgear Simulators designed to train personnel on automatic and manual operation of Russelectric switchgear for renewable energy facilities and microgrids.
Customized to mimic the operation of the customer’s Russelectric® switchgear/system, Russelectric simulators familiarize workers on the system and its operation and diagnose a wide range of utility, generator, and breaker problems. The simulators can also assess the impact of changes to PLC setpoints such as kW values and time delays. Using the simulators enables operators to evaluate responses to failure scenarios and use the information to develop and validate site operating and emergency procedures.
Russelectric switchgear simulators are available in two versions: The Training Simulator allows personnel to train on the automatic operation of Russelectric Switchgear, while the Advanced Training Simulator allows personnel to train on both manual and automatic operations. With the addition of hard-wired controls and interlock circuits, the simulator PLC mimics full manual controls, enabling personnel to train in the comfort and safety of an office environment.
Russelectric provides high-integrity power control solutions for mission critical applications in the healthcare, information technology, telecommunication, water treatment, and renewable energy markets. The company maintains manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts and Oklahoma, where it designs and builds automatic transfer switches, switchgear, and controls.
