The Protection, Control and Metering (PCM) Senior Engineer shall provide the scope of works defined below, ensuring that the Protection, Control and Metering scope for the project is designed and delivered in accordance with the Employer's requirements, Grid Code and Network Connection Agreements requirements, other TSO requirements, the Company standards, industry relevant standards and best engineering practices.
The Protection, Control and Metering scope includes the Protection systems, the Substation Control System, the Platform Auxiliary Control System, the WTG switchgear control and protection and the Metering systems.

  • Ensure that the Protection, Control and Metering systems provided by contractors (including Substation Control System, Protection System, Platform Auxiliary Control system and Metering systems) are designed and delivered in accordance with the Employer's requirements, the Grid Code and Network Connection Agreements requirements, other TSO requirements, the Company standards, industry relevant standards and best engineering practices. Review and acceptance of technical deliverables, including but not limited to:
  • Protection Single Line Diagram
  • Protection basic design
  • Trip Matrix
  • Protection detailed design
  • Protection Coordination Study, including review of protection settings and configurations files
  • SCS Functional Description
  • Control Architecture
  • Communications Architecture
  • Protection and Control Equipment List
  • Signal list (including hardwired and communicated with third party systems)
  • Panel drawings (layout drawings, circuit diagrams, wiring diagrams,...)
  • Logic diagrams, including interlocks and tripping logics
  • HMI Representation
  • SCADA database
  • Testing Procedures and certificates
  • Interfaces with other systems, including protection system interface with TSO, signal exchange with TSO, interface for control and protection of WTG switchgear
