Alabama A & M University Sealed Solicitation

Title: Power Plant Simulator for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department

Deadline: 8/8/2019 2:00 PM   (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Status: Awarded

Solicitation Number: Bid No. 2K19-13B

Description:

Alabama A&M University (“University”) is seeking bids from vendors to provide the Computer Science Department with a Power Plant Simulator possessing all of the functional requirements and ancillary equipment defined in this specification.  The awarded vendor will be required to provide installation services at the University’s site complete with startup and hands-on training for students within a scheduled session.

POWER PLANT FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION

A.     Functional Description:  The power plant simulator consists of transformers to simulate the process of a power generating plant and transformers to simulate remote substations for step-up or step-down voltages.  Starting at the Main Power Generation Plant (simulated), the power will be split to two different substations.  At these substations, the voltage will be stepped down to different voltages to simulate the different common voltages used by the consumers.  Control Transformers will be used to step up or step down the voltage to simulate the substations. 

Voltage sensors will be located at incoming and outgoing sources, and the voltages will be displayed on analog meters located on the simulator.  There are also switches and indicator lights at each substation to represent circuit breakers and switches in a real system.  Most power generation plants and some industries have backup generators to supply power to their plant in case of plant power failure.  These will be simulator at the power plant and the industrial plant on the simulator.  There is an indicator light that represents the status of the generator.  All voltages, switches, circuit breakers, and generators will be monitored by the PLC and the HMI.

Power Plant Simulator must include:

·         Enclosure with Subpanel, approximately 30”H x 48”W x 24” with Casters

·         Schneider Electric M340 PLC and I/O

·         Unmanaged Ethernet Switch, 5 Port

·         Simulator System including Transformers, Sensors, Switches, etc.

·         Programming for HMI and PLC Integration of the Power Station Simulator

·         Shop Labor for Panel and Simulator Construction

Vendor will provide Installation, Startup, and Training Services to include:

·         On-site installation and wiring of simulator systems

·         Startup of the Simulator Systems

·         Training and Hands-On for students

·         Vendor’s Travel, Lodging, and Meals are to be included in price for Installation, Startup, and Training.

Vendor must provide CAD documentation including bill of materials, layout, schematic, terminal block layout and engraving schedule.  Panels must be neatly wired and tested prior to delivery. 

Computers or computer software are not required to be included in this quotation.
