7 Technical Applications, Developed and Applied Within Yorkshire Water
8 Traditional MCC Best Practice and Standards Documents Good engineering, electrical & control specification.Standard Documentation for all panel manufacturers and system integration.Good engineering, electrical & control specification. Because the MCC’s and the PLC control code had evolved slowly over a long period of time.In the PLC World YW developed standard programming practices, including standard block of PLC code for Standard items of control and automation.
9 Application Software Change Management Managed the change.PLC provider change to a IEC platform.When we changed YW main framework PLC provider, the change was straight forward as all of the programming practices changes to a IEC compliant PLC provider, all the standard blocks of PLC code be changed in a planned and proactive manner, the main block of work carried out before any of the new PLC were installed on site.
10 Intelligent MCC Best Practice and Standards Documents Good engineering, electrical & control specification.Standard Documentation for all panel manufacturers and majority of System IntegrationProfibus PLC function block methodology and application.Yorkshire Water had a rapid drive towards intelligent MCC’s.Even though a traditional MCC all documents and practices where in place.It sounds a simple task of realigning the preset function blocks to Profibus.
11 Proportion of the application of Profibus on Yorkshire water sites. MCCInstrumentation75%25%
12 MCCInstrumentationNo previous instrument function blocks, as we only used the analogue signal and a fault contact from Instruments.We didn’t have a good understanding of what extra information Profibus instrumentation could give us and how useful that information was.Instrument function block development initially accounted for 25% inconsistence in program development.

15 Real Inputs Data Inputs Control Control and and Status Status MCCInstrumentationTraditional Function blockProfibus Function blockReal InputsControlandStatusReal OutputsData InputsControlandStatusData OutputsWe have always tried to keep the Control and status section as near as possible the same.Simple task of changing the real inputs and outputs to Profibus data input and outputs. No problem.We are used to change management in Yorkshire Water, in the MCC world the function blocks changed from traditional function blocks to Profibus function blocks. Although the change was not as proactive as we would of liked, the change took place short period of time.70% of function blocks where changed over a short period of time. The 30% left can be split 25% to new instrument function blocks and 5 % to intelligent motor control device parametisation.
16 Parameterisation of Simocode unit. MCCParameterisation of Simocode unit.Background & reasons!The Intelligent Motor control device is a electrical device.Existing contractual reasons with E & M Maintenance partner.5% of the inconsistence came about due to the need to parameterisation of the Intelligent Motor Control Units.As the System Integrator and Yorkshire Water got a better understanding of the technology, the goal posts kept moving, We have ended up with many different versions on different sites.No Laptops.
17 Parameterisation of Simocode unit. MCCParameterisation of Simocode unit.HMIPLCIntelligent Motor Control deviceVia the HMI the PLC saves the parameterisation of the Intelligent Motor Control device
18 Parameterisation of Simocode unit. MCCParameterisation of Simocode unit.Technical achievement !Have we re engineered the wheel !Technical achievement at what cost – We think a excellent technical achievement by our System Integration partner BUT have we re engineered the wheel.?We went though various versions of the parameterisation function blocks to overcome different requirement mainly due to the increased knowledge gained from the work on the previous function block. This is the 5% inconsistencyHave we created a conflict in backup version control ! One copy on the HMI memory, one stored in a central version control, 2 different teams doing the same backup!Have we created a conflict in backup version control !

26 Summary of ICA Initial Integrity testing at scheme handover. Installation – wiring of network in starter cubicle is designed for tradional starter, then the simocode unit replaces devices in the same location of the cubicle. Should the cubicle layout change to a standard to get the best layout for the network cable? Removing tight bends, increase cable spaceing, gettting the cable length correct, e.g not too short if the connector needs reconnecting, not too long to have cable spacing issues.Speed / Length list sites√?xAcceptable.Acceptable, but not to standard.Not acceptable, needs attention.
28 Current Skill base! ICA Technician PLC’s LOI’s Instrumentation SCADA Electrical DevicesIn general YW ICA had a policy of setting on the best Electricians available and via training and work experience turned these people into ICA engineers. We liked people from this background as you could get involved in a range of electrical control and instrumentation tasks. In recent times as more specific technical knowledge is required, we have set on instrumentation technician with only instrumentation as a background. They are used to more complex instrumentation, but tend to lack skills in electrical control systems.Profibus and the ICA engineer. What skills are required?
29 Profibus and the ICA Technician. Future Skill base!Profibus and the ICA Technician.SCADAPLC’sLOI’sElectrical DevicesInstrumentationProfibus and the ICA engineer. What skills are required?LOI interface problems. Business as usualSCADA interface problems. Business as usualInstrumentation. Business as usual plus a few profibus communication settings.Electrical DevicesVSD’s, Business as usual, plus a few profibus communication settings. VSD have already programmable settings for commissioning. Plus they are a electrical device, not ICA?FSD, new electrical programmable control device in Yorkshire Water, they are a electrical device, with a programmable setup!Valves, Business as usual, plus a few profibus communication settingsPLC Knowledge to get to know how the PLC is controlling Business as usualPLC Knowledge and the profibus master card, how does the comms interface all hang togetherHow complex is the understanding required, is it as simple as which are the target addresses for the profibus device input and outputs,Is it how a complex function block for Acyclic comms works.Do they need to know the setting for each device,do they need to know understand the setting for each device and what effect for example on the intelligent starter these setting have?Is it good enough to say the last device they set up the trip class as 30, do they need to know this was a special setup,will they put a trip class of 30 in the next intelligent starter they setup. I think NOTSo now the ICA engineer needs to know about and understand all the devices on the Profibus network, which is a massive change compared to the traditional non intelligent installations.

Call outs are contracted out to external company, fix in x days. ICA have not got the in-depth knowledge of Ethernet, IT have but this leads to difficulties out of normal working hours.Within Profibus ICA have always taken the lead and are actively controlling the skill base.Purchase Profibus network analysis hardware and software.SCADA softwareVSD’sSCADA HardwarePLC’sMCC’sCorporate NetworkTelemetryInstruments
31 Training and Developing of Maintenance teams Ownership of the training!ProfibusElectricalICAHow do we increase the skill base in Yorkshire Water, traditionally give the engineers a bit of training and a few breakdown later, you have a expert, who then can pass that knowledge on to others.But what if the system rarely goes wrong, we think the answer is to give more regular training, to make up for the lack of on the job breakdown training. We have a small 4 cubicle intelligent MCC at a central location. This has been configured to Yorkshire Water standards. We have also acquired from instrumentation and valve partners various devices, we connected on a external profibus network on to this MCC. We have already undertaken many training courses on the MCC and there are plans to give regular training session based around the panel.As part of the training around the checks of Profibus network, we have developed training videos on how to use the health check software.Even though the health check can be quite boring (especially when every thing is health), we have implemented annual health check on all our Profibus network. The annual health check in a few years time may be change to for example a bi annual health check, we will not know this until we have collated health check data. The second benefit of the health check is that it is giving the ICA Technicians practise on how to analyse the Profibus network, very useful when things go wrong!As a extra bonus to the business we have trained our electrical contract partners on the intelligent motor control devices, this in turn should reduce the number of maintenance requests that are passed on to the ICA engineer from electrical partners .
