Interconnected Subsystems for different types of processes in SALPG:

Fire & Gas Detection System (F&G)

Provides interface to LEL, UV/IR, Heat & Smoke detectors during emergencies like a gas leak or fire hazards. These detectors send signals to the Control System to initiate shutdowns, activate the alarms, and autostart firefighting equipment.

Power Distribution Control System (PDCS)

This system connects to all the HT and LT breakers and also interfaces with DCS. Hence, NO Human presence is required at the substation. It enables better analysis during troubleshooting and optimizes operations.

Distributed Control Systems (DCS)

Data flows from all other subsystems to this centralized control system. It maintains operations with safety during normal functions and provides communication between the control room and the field.

Emergency Shutdown (ESD)

Maintains operations within safety limits where human life, the environment, and the property are all protected in case of process interruption and shuts the functions safely.

SALPG operates by considering all safety measures to avoid any disasters. Our secure shutdown processes and the capability to bounce back into operations with advanced automation control systems in case of any hazard are prime examples of the robustness of our innovative infrastructure.
