Power Generation


Standby Generator Control System - (Defence Force)

Megatronic Power Systems was engaged to design, supply and test a control system for x4 2200KW Diesel backup generators which provide standby Electrical power to a Defence Force Base. Megatronic SOW on the project was the control system integration of the different elements from Hardwired signals, to communications with a SiTec governor, GCP and system indicators. 

The station required to be capable of operating automatically in isochronous mode with full load
sharing (both real and reactive) between multiple generator sets, operating in parallel with each
other or in parallel with the mains supply.
There was also a manual mode available on each individual generator set to enable manual operation
of the individual set while the rest of the station is in automatic control.


The project consisted of:

  • x4 new electrical control panels (Not Supplied by MPS)
  • x6 new PLC’s
  • x6 HMI interface.
  • Integration and comms with the SiTec governor
  • Integration and comms with each GCP.

Solar Telemetry and Control - De-watering


Megatronic Power Systems was engaged to design, supply and commission a solar-powered control system with battery back-up and telemetry communications at three separate locations on a de-watering facility. Each facility had a flowmeter, control valve and level transmitter that monitored, controlled and reported the water flow and tank/pond level to different sites on the pipeline.


The project consisted of:

  • x3 new electrical control panels
  • x3 solar power stations with battery backup and protection.
  • x3 new PLC’s
  • x4 Radio’s/RTU for communication
  • x1 HMI interface with local alarm pages and status of the de-watering facility
  • New instrumentation
  • Full electrical design including solar and battery sizing along with commissioning including the drafting and doc control of the design
  • The addition of the system to the site SCADA system with remote monitoring and control.

Large Scale Solar – Feasibility Study


Megatronic Power Systems are currently involved in a Solar Power feasibility study for our client. The nature of this project is confidential. Megatronic is putting a concept design together with functionality, efficiencies, costings and payback periods to be determined.
