maxDNA CONTROL SYSTEM


maxDNA is name of control system. maxDNA is developed by Metso Automation USA. maxDNA widely used for power plant automation. First maxDNA control supplied to RRVUNL Kota Unit-6. All the modules supplied to Kota unit were imported from USA. From then all the modules are being manufactured at our EDN Bangalore unit. maxDNA control system is customized for specific application.

maxDNA RPU COMPONENTS


The Distributed Processing Unit (DPU4F) is the process controller. The Model 4F Distributed Processing Unit (DPU) is a multifunction controller and data acquisition processor that executes
control algorithms, sequence logic, sequence of events resolution data acquisition.

maxDNA DPU4F (CONT.)


The heart of the DPU is a database called the Distributed Point Management System (DPMS). The DPMS is fully aware of the tag names, hierarchy, and other text attributes of its configured points. It is loaded with a configuration created by the Systems engineer and executes that configuration to provide the control and data acquisition functions required. The DPU 4F resides directly on the MAXNET communications network without the need for servers.

IO Racks

Use a ribbon cable to interconnect in daisy chain style two or more adjacent I/O chassis assemblies in the same I/O cabinet group. One end of the ribbon cable plugs into P10 of the first I/O in the string. The other end of the ribbon cable connects to P9 of the next I/O in the string. Continue this P10 to P9 sequence until the last I/O in the string is reached. See Figure.

COMMISSIONING SEQUENCE A- PANEL POWER-UP


Check cabinet installation as per drawing( system O&M manuals). Check for any physical damage. Checking of hardwares as per configuration diagram. Verify I/O module addresses. Verify that modules are properly inserted in back plane. Ensure that DPU mode switch is kept at F. Verify that all backplanes are connected with ribbon cable and terminator is put to last backplane slot. Remove all P2/P3 connectors from the I/O modules to isolate field terminations. Ensure the panel electronic & power supply ground earthing. Ensure that no wirings are loose terminated. Check for power supply before power-up. Ensure that power supply connectors are properly connected to backplanes. Switch on power supply and check for 24VDC supply. Observe that DPUs boot-up and LED indications.

B-COMMUNICATION WITH EWS


Set the EWS and connect the peripherals including respective dongle card. Boot-up the EWS maxStartup program automatically start and minimizes. maxStartup software version is 4.2.1.SP-2 Without dongle card maxStartup program can not be started. Power on network switches Connect the network cable as per layout Establish the communication with EWS. Verify the DPU address at EWS. Load the application software and verify the ACTIVE LED of I/O module are green. ACTIVE indication should not blink. Unfreeze the outputs. All the outputs freezed when full application software is loaded to DPU. Connect P2/P3 connectors sequentially and proceed for loop checking.
