VOLTA Engineering Group Upgraded the Dispatcher Panel of the Udmurt RDA

VOLTA Engineering Group has successfully completed renovation of the dispatcher panel of the Udmurt Regional Dispatcher Administration (RDA), branch of OJSC System Operator of Unified Energy System (UES). The contract for work performance was concluded in last December between OJSC SO UES and Energosoft IK LLC, a member of VOLTA Engineering Group.

Within the contract amounting to more than RUB 32 million, VOLTA Engineering Group has installed an information display system based on 12 Barco projection video cubes in the dispatcher room of the Udmurt RDA (Izhevsk). The work under the contract was completed within the deadline established by contractual obligations. At the end of April, the system was successfully commissioned for industrial operations, and the parties signed the acceptance act for the works performed.

The installed equipment allows for reduction of the grid staff fatigue and provides the staff with the most complete and reliable information on the status of the controlled facilities, reducing energy consumption through LED lamps in video cubes. Video walls based on Barco projection cubes ensure continuous round-the-clock operation and simultaneous display of data from any number of various sources. Compared to conventional indicator panels employed previously in ACSs and composed of static elements (indicators of various types), video walls allow for scaling information and changing display scenario in a prompt manner, as well as showing model results of the decisions to be taken. Total resolution of a video wall is many times more than that of a projector which is extremely important for demonstrating complex schematic diagrams containing fine details.

“The Izhevsk project has not only confirmed serious expertise of VOLTA Engineering Group in installation of group information display systems, but also became a new stage of our fundamentally important cooperation with OJSC SO UES, which, hopefully, will be further expanded”, Denis Azernikov, Member of the Board of VOLTA Engineering Group, commented on successful project implementation. He reminded that this year, apart from similar projects implemented recently in Penza, Kuban and Chelyabinsk RDAs and in Nefteyugansk Electric Grids, VOLTA Engineering Group provides technical support for all installed group information display systems based on Barco equipment in OJSC SO UES.
