Display wall systems offers improved control of electrical system network

19 March 2013

The centrepiece of a new network management centre of a Russian energy distribution network company is a display wall from Mitsubishi Electric.

Mitsubishi Electric displaywall systems form the centerpiece of two network control centers built for Lenenergo OJSC, a Russian energy distribution network company.

The screens play a vital role in the management of a 0.4 -110 kW network and the consumer electric supply in the Saint-Petersburg and the Leningrad regions.

Mitsubishi VS-60XE70U 60in LED video cubes were installed by system integrator, Viking, in in the central control room as well as in in its Kingisepp regional control centre. The Network Control Center display is comprised of 33 cubes, with a total screen width of 13.4m and a height of 2.74 m.

The control system allows simultaneous management from four dispatcher workstations. Image sources are managed with the help of a router, and the system is overseen by a software platform, developed by the system integrator, which manages the collection, processing, imaging and archiving of information.

The Kingisepp control room manages the electricity supply to four large towns. Viking equipped the control room with a display wall consisting of Mitsubishi 60in projection cubes in a 5 ? 3 configuration. The total size measures 6.1 m wide ? 2.74 m high. The control board allows operators to visualise signalling parameters and real-time measurements across the network, enabling the effective management of the automated dispatching control system.
Mitsubishi cubes were selected for their image quality, brightness management, which reduces power consumption and extends lifespan, and the built-in versatility of Mitsubishi’s Seventy series user-selectable input cards, which allows the number and type of inputs to be easily changed for future expansion.

The new control centres have allowed Lenergo OJSC to deliver improved control of the electrical system network, helping to ensure maximum network reliability even in periods of peak load.
