  • Clean coal technologies
  • Nuclear power plans and nuclear-powered aircraft carriers

IAS Custom Controls Saves Nuclear Power Plant from Millions in Fines

Challenge: The Surry Nuclear Power Station in Surry VA has three emergency diesel generators to ensure they can supply power at all times. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission mandates that these generators be tested periodically to ensure that they are within specifications and will perform as designed if needed. Until IAS Corp got involved the testing was done by connecting meters, oscilloscopes, and other various pieces of test equipment to individual components in the control cabinet. The process took man hours and time away from productivity and the fine was significant f anything failed.

IAS Custom Controls Saves Nuclear Power Plant from Millions in FinesIAS Corp. Solution: We designed and developed the Induspec78 system, which runs the test routines automatically from a self-contained control system, collecting 1000 samples per second, recording data to a hard drive, and importing it into a template that depicts a perfect run. Any deviation from a perfect test isInduspec Data Aquisition System quickly detected and the problem can be corrected.

In 2001, IAS engineers further sped up test times and reduced employee fatigue with a digital communications system called Industrial Light Link. Used in voice activation or Push to talk mode, an unlimited number of headsets can be connected to the same line and used to talk over different channels. Soft ear pad headsets are comfortable enough to wear all day and feature noise cancellation microphones that eliminate background noise.
