Version 3

    Schneider Electric’s Power Control System (PCS) provides functions for controlling power generation and helping utilities improve power supply reliability by preventing frequency and flow disturbances, minimize electrical power production costs, reduce electric system operating costs, shave peak power demand and shift power generation peaks, optimize use of reserves, extend equipment life, and improve efficiencies through short and long-term planning.  PCS integrates with SCADA for realtime monitoring and control, and weather systems for accurate weather forecasting of temperature, cloud cover, wind speed, and humidity.

     

    In addition, PCS is used as a microgrid controller for larger, advanced microgrids.


    Small and mid-size microgrids are controlled via our PowerLogic Control System.
