Abstract

This paper documented an experience in transiting and improving the load shedding infrastructure in a nickel processing plant (NPP). The motivation of load shedding improvement is the NPP's policy to reduce the carbon footprint by transforming the power generation into an eco-friendly system. As a result, the power system characteristic is metamorphosed. The NPP owned a static frequency converter (SFC) which provides supplemental power when the loss of the main generation. However, the NPP experience SFC failure and ended in a blackout situation. A thorough analysis is presented in this work with several possible solutions. The investigation found that an improvement to the load shedding system is required to prevent SFC being overloaded. A transition scenario between PLC to relay based and its implementation are documented in this paper.
