We work with your company to provide power system consultancy and protection solutions. At Kirby Automation Ltd, we are experts in our field, and we can’t wait to share our skills with you.
We’re able to deal with the full development cycle, from the initial capture of data to the implementation of our bespoke design.
We have more than 20 years of experience designing protection relay algorithms, applications, and schemes for high and medium voltage transmission and distribution (HV/MV T&D) systems. We use this experience to analyse complex problems and provide workable solutions.
This experience covers all aspects of power control system protection, including:
Additionally, we have extensive experience in compliance testing, factory acceptance testing, accreditation, and homologation processes. This experience has been gained with internationally-recognised bodies, such as:
We provide model-based design solutions for complex real-time control systems. You’re able to use these systems to analyse system behaviour, identify new solutions, and optimise these solutions. Ultimately, you’re able to deploy this as software, to run on a microprocessor, or as a hardware description language solution. This may be a solution similar to Verilog or VHDL, for a field programmable gate array.
This analysis is performed using the leading industry technology, such as:
We’re able to provide scheme design, validation, and verification services for your power system stability needs.
Techniques such as out of step and open line detection are often deployed on long distance high voltage transmission lines. These are used to identify unhealthy power flows on the network, typically after a fault has caused part of the network to become disconnected.
