Industrial plants often own and operate their own electrical distribution substations and increasingly are owning generation assets. Furthermore, large commercial generating plants are becoming a significant part of the energy mix.
Virelec has served this industry from the beginning, supplying relay panels to Cogeneration plants in the mid 1990’s, ranging from small 5MW sized generators to the larger non-utility merchant style gas fired power plants.
Our staff of knowledgeable engineers are able to design systems to meet local electric utility requirements for interconnection to the grid. Be it an impedance based distance relay, a three terminal line differential relay or a complex direct transfer tripping system, Virelec’s protection, control and SCADA engineers have the experience to undertake the power plant as well as utility interconnection P&C portion of customer’s projects.
