Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) Award

WSC received a contract from the Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to deliver a 3KEYMASTER Generic Hydroelectric Power Plant Classroom Simulator for the Hydropower Training Institute (HPTI) Mangla. The simulator will be used to instruct students on the basic concepts of hydropower plant operation and control of the plant systems.


The engineering-grade simulator destined for classroom training is a 100 MWe Unit Hydro Power Plant delivered on a 3KEYSTUDENT Classroom Platform, which will provide WAPDA with more flexibility than the single operator station setup, extending the simulator's capabilities:

   -   Adding training flexibility by allowing each student to run the simulator load independently or in a "Team" mode
   -   Allowing for control of multiple generators in a classroom setting on a single hardware platform.


The operation of the plant equipment, plant parameters control and monitoring, and safety tagging of plant equipment is carried out through the emulated ABB HMI system. The DCS is fully emulated, including HMI functionality and the logic & control, allowing the simulator to be used on multiple machines simultaneously.
