Electricity generation is the process of generating electric power from sources of primary energy. For utilities in the electric power industry, it is the stage prior to its delivery to end users or its storage.
A power plant is an industrial facility used to generate electric power with the help of one or more generators which converts different energy sources into electric power. ... The energy sources used to make electricity can be renewable or non-renewable, but electricity itself is neither renewable or non-renewable.
A control system DCS/PLC manages, commands, directs, or regulates the behavior of other devices or systems using control loops. It can range from a single home heating controller using a thermostat controlling a domestic boiler to large Industrial control systems which are used for controlling processes or machines.
The Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley® Combination Generator Control Module (CGCM) sets a new standard for generator control. The CGCM combines excitation control, generator protection, synchronization control, and full-featured metering in a single compact product. The CGCM, when used in conjunction with a Control Logix® Automation Controller, provides a highly robust and flexible platform for generator control and system supervision.
