Difgen - Model MC - Master Control Unit for Pressure and Flow Control System
From The Difgen
The Difgen MC is the master control unit for a pressure/flow control system comprising two or more Difgen turbines working in concert. With the built-in capability to control other valves and control devices, and to monitor external measuring devices, it represents a complete solution for a pressure or flow control station.
A multiple Difgen system requires a master control system to address such additional issues as:
- how operation of the Difgen array should be coordinated
- how the Difgen should be integrated in the overall operation
In its base configuration, the MC can control two Difgens in parallel or in series, a bypass PRV and three isolation valves. Adding optional plug and play control and measurement loops can extend it into a comprehensive system. A library of thoroughly tested standard functional blocks ensures consistent functionality.
Zeropex has issued a general guideline document (TDO11871) for anyone who wants to implement this functionality in their own SCADA/PLC system, or in their own frame-contract system integrator.
