Training simulators from Russelectric are designed and programmed to mimic the actual operation and performance of the switchgear/system and both the automatic and manual operation of the switchgear, enabling personnel to familiarize themselves with the system and its operation; accurately diagnose a range of utility, generator and breaker problems; and assess the impact of changes to programmable logic controller (PLC) setpoints, such as kW values and time delays by seeing how the system responds. Simulators are also designed for developing and validating site operating and emergency procedures without interfering with operation of the actual system. Any time the switchgear is upgraded, the simulator can be used to test the modified PLC and operator interface panel logic before downloading it to the online PLC system, greatly reducing live system testing time. 800/225-5250;
