Introduction to PLCs


*curated information…

By PLC Manual

What does ‘PLC’ mean?

A PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) is an industrial computer used to monitor inputs, and depending upon their state make decisions based on its program or logic, to control (turn on/off) its outputs to automate a machine or a process.

NEMA defines a PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER as:

“A digitally operating electronic apparatus which uses a programmable memory for the internal storage of instructions by implementing specific functions such as logic sequencing, timing, counting, and arithmetic to control, through digital or analog input/output modules, various types of machines or processes”.

Traditional PLC Applications
*In automated system, PLC controller is usually the central part of a process control system.
*To run more complex processes it is possible to connect more PLC controllers to a central computer.

Disadvantages of PLC control
– Too much work required in connecting wires.

– Difficulty with changes or replacements.
– Difficulty in finding errors; requiring skillful work force.

– When a problem occurs, hold-up time is indefinite, usually long.

Advantages of PLC control
* Rugged and designed to withstand vibrations, temperature, humidity, and noise.

* Have interfacing for inputs and outputs already inside the controller.

* Easily programmed and have an easily understood programming language.

Major Types of Industrial Control Systems

Industrial control system or ICS comprise of different types of control systems that are currently in operation in various industries. These control systems include PLC, SCADA and DCS and various others:

PLC

They are based on the Boolean logic operations whereas some models use timers and some have continuous control. These devices are computer based and are used to control various process and equipments within a facility. PLCs control the components in the DCS and SCADA systems but they are primary components in smaller control configurations.

DCS

Distributed Control Systems consists of decentralized elements and all the processes are controlled by these elements. Human interaction is minimized so the labor costs and injuries can be reduced.

Embedded Control

In this control system, small components are attached to the industrial computer system with the help of a network and control is exercised.

SCADA

Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition refers to a centralized system and this system is composed of various subsystems like Remote Telemetry Units, Human Machine Interface, Programmable Logic Controller or PLC and Communications.

Biogas company aims to heat homes with the power of panda poop

Biogas company aims to heat homes with the power of panda poop

There’s always been something smelly east of Meadowvale Road.

But now, the stench is getting sweeter.

ZooShare – a renewable energy co-operative – broke ground Tuesday on North America’s first ever zoo-based biogas plant.

The facility is being built on three hectares of land across the street from the Toronto Zoo and is taking over its composting facility, using the 3,000 tons of waste the animals produce each year to generate power.

Poop will be mixed with 14,000 tons of local grocery store waste, and will generate energy to power 250 homes for a year.

“[It’s] really a big concrete stomach,” says ZooShare Executive Director Daniel Bida, describing how the biogas plant will operate.

“If you feed organic waste into this concrete stomach, over a period of about 30 days, methane will be produced that can be used to generate electricity.”

Bida says burning the methane gas will create some emissions, but adds this is greatly offset by the positive impact of diverting waste from the landfill, where it would produce methane gas that would be released into the atmosphere regardless.

According to ZooShare’s website, the biogas plant’s operations will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of 10,000 tons of C02 annually. And afterwards, the waste can still be used as a nutrient-rich form of fertilizer.

Beyond the headlines: quantifying the economic contributions of migrants


*curated information…

In today’s society, we are defined by our ability to reach every corner of the world in an instant. We can share ideas and move between geographies, cultures and continents like never before. So it’s not surprising people are on the move. In fact, according to figures from the United Nations, there are now 243 million international migrants, representing roughly 3.4% of the global population.

Migration is a major dimension of globalization, but today we live in a time of huge political and economic uncertainty – one where many countries are questioning their national identities and their status within the international community. As such, migration and migrant matters have become some of the most talked-about topics of today’s political and media discourse, with the dominant narratives focusing either on remittance flows by migrants to relatives in their home countries or friction within their host country.

Solar Water Pumping – Part 1 – Basics


*curated information…

By AMY BEAUDET  

This is the first part of our blog series on solar water pumping that introduces to you the different types of solar water pumps. 

Solar Water Pumps – the Solution to Pumping without Electrical Lines 

Solar water pumps enable you to move water from its remote source to where you need it, without access to power lines. Solar pumping has three primary uses; domestic use for washing, cooking and drinking, livestock watering, and irrigation. The same basics are used for all three requirements, although domestic use may require additional capabilities. We’ll discuss domestic use for this blog. We’ll cover irrigation and livestock in a future blog post. Solar water pumps are different from regular AC powered pumps in more ways than the simple fact that they use DC power instead of AC. Most solar pumps are designed to be used in off-grid situations, and are designed to be extremely efficient. By not experiencing losses when going from DC to AC and back to DC, you can maximize your pumping while minimizing your power use. The most efficient way to use a solar pump is PV-direct, powering the pump directly off the solar panel, without using batteries. Rather than experiencing losses through storing power in batteries, the water itself is stored in a cistern or tank to be used when needed. It’s much easier to store water than power. The difference between a cistern and a tank is a cistern has a removable lid, and a tank is generally sealed.

Submersible Solar Pumps vs Surface Pumps

Solar water pumps typical come two types: submersible and surface.

Submersible solar pump (left) versus a surface pump (right).

Solar water pumps are typically divided into two categories: submersible pump and surface pump. A submersible pump is installed under water, usually in a well, but can also be in a pond or stream if raised off the bottom. A surface pump is installed above the water, with an intake hose feeding the pump from the water source, and the output hose feeding the tank. Pumps are able to push water out much higher than they are able to suck water in, so the they need to be close to the water source. Keep the head, or the height difference between the water and the pump,as low as possible.

Morning Boost

Most of us need a boost to get going in the morning; a solar pump is no different. Pumps generally require a high surge in current when starting up, but not a lot of voltage. As a result, when solar pumps are starting in the dim, morning light, it can sometimes have trouble getting started. A Linear Current Booster (LCB) is a device that can be installed between the solar panel array and the pump to increase the current output to get the pump going in lower light. It does so by dropping the voltage output, which doesn’t affect the water flow as much as current does. This will allow pumping to begin earlier in the day, and continue later in the afternoon as the sun is heading down – giving you more water pumped overall during the day.

Let me float this idea by you…

A float switch can be connected to control when to turn the pump on or off based on the water level. A pump up switch will turn the pump on when the tank is low, and off when it is full. It is also known as a full tank shut off switch. A pump down float will turn on the pump when the tank is full, and off when it is empty. It is also known as an empty tank shut off switch. Some LCBs have the ability to connect a float switch input to it, rather than directly to the pump. Be sure to check the manual of the LCB, as the on/off behavior may change when using a float switch with certain LCBs.

 Under Pressure

When providing water for a house, water pressure must be created to allow the water to flow inside the pipes. A typical house has 40 PSI (pounds per square inch) of pressure, although, as low as 20 PSI may be adequate for your needs. Water pressure can be achieved a few ways. Gravity feed is the most basic method; where the water is stored in a tank higher than the house. Every foot of head is equal to 0.433 PSI. If the tank is 100’ high, it will provide 43 PSI of water pressure for your house (100’ x .433 = 43.3 PSI).

Feet Head of Water to PSI

Ft. Head PSI Ft. Head PSI Ft. Head PSI

1 0.43 20 8.66 80 34.6

2 0.87 30 13 90 39

3 1.3 40 17.3 100 43.3

4 1.73 50 21.6 200 86.6

5 2.17 60 26 500 216

10 4.33 70 30.3 1000 433

 

Booster Pump for House Pressure

If a high storage tank isn’t possible, a smaller booster pump can be added to the system to pressurize the pipes. This pump would have to be connected to the battery bank to allow pressurizing at any time of day or night. The booster pump technical specs will show the PSI capability and how many amps are needed to create the pressure.

This should provide a general overview of solar pumping. Stay tuned for our next blog where we demonstrate how to select the right solar water pumps for your off-grid house. Please contact us at the altE Store for help designing your solar water pumping system.
