Paralleling Switchgear Solutions

Comprehensive solution to ensure power availability, power monitoring and management by paralleling multiple power sources

Paralleling Switchgear (PSG) is a combination of protection, metering, control and switching elements acting as an integrated system. 

PSG acts as a brain in the switchgear control & operations, providing reliable solution for critical power application from simple to complex systems. The PSG solution interfaces and integrates ABB MV, LV switchgear and 3rd party gear with a mix of ABB and 3rd party devices such as PLCs, synchronizers, generator/engine controllers, protection relays, power quality metering, SCADA system, UPS, ATS to provide turn-key flexible control solutions. 

PSG can provide and enhances system reliability, ease of uninterruptible maintenance, and operational cost savings. 

Various PSG applications include Standby, Prime Power, Open/closed transition, Soft transition, Parallel with Utility modes including peak shaving. 
 

The PSG solutions can perform following operations:

  • UL certified designs, NEMA enclosures
  • Control & Automation of multiple LV/MV switchgears and switchboards
  • System control and optimization of multiple gens and utilities
