Premium Plant Library

The new PCS 7 library for the power engineering and energy sector! Siemens PCS 7 is one of the latest and most successful process control systems on the market. GreyLogix und SAR are certified as Siemens “PCS 7 System Partner Specialist” – both companies are now members of a group limited to 40 worldwide. Outstanding system know-how, profound and comprehensive process knowledge – these are the basics to achieve this industrial award.

In terms of individual control concepts, system availability and system structures, the requirements for control systems applied in power generation are prescribed and defined by the VGB regulation R170 B0-B6. PCS 7 libraries currently available on the market only partially conform with these VGB standards; they do not meet the present state-of-the-art or cannot be maintained in new PCS 7 versions. Being aware of these deficiencies, E.ON, GreyLogix and SAR decided to develop a special power plant library – the Premium Plant Library (PPL). This library complies with all VGB rules and regulations and represents the overall scope of functions to be found in an up-to-date power plant library.

The Premium Plant Library functions in brief:

  • checked for VGB conformity
  • power plant standard of controls and functions
  • application of latest PCS 7 features
  • compatible with all PCS 7 versions as of V 7.0
  • available on the market 
  • replacement of PCS 7 PS library by PPL library feasible

The new PPL modules will be also available in pin-compatible design which allows plant operators to migrate from an already existing PCS 7 PS library to PCS 7 V 7.0. This will enable the partner companies to offer economically sound solutions for these customers when it comes to system migration and control system enhancement.
