Thermal Power Plants

Control Systems

Mitsubishi Power has worked on a large number of thermal power plants ranging from Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) power plants to conventional coal-, gas-, and oil-fired power plants.

Mitsubishi Power has provided the entire process for building a thermal power plant from design through installation and trial operation. This is why Mitsubishi Power has been able to develop a user-friendly control system.

The reliability of our control systems and their ease of use are highly praised, and Mitsubishi Power has successfully installed many control systems for thermal power plants.

Mitsubishi Power also provides a wide variety of optional products to support the plant operation.



A vast product lineup, for the flexibility to offer optimum systems ranging from large-scale to mid- and small-scale

Our full hardware product lineup can offer a wide range of solutions from compact systems to large-scale systems. DIASYS provides large-size controllers (MPS: Multiple Process Station) and small-size controllers (CPS: Compact Process Station). A distributed system can be designed and offered based on its use and scale with the optimum balance between cost and performance. For thermal power plants, DIASYS can offer control and monitoring functions for the entire plant.

High reliability and easy maintenance

DIASYS maintains high system reliability by having redundancy for its CPU data processing module, network modules, and power unit. Furthermore, the CPU module has a substantial self-diagnostic function. In case of failure, the system switches to the backup modules without any disruptions in system control. Additionally, the root cause of the issue is displayed to aid in taking prompt corrective action.

Designed for ease of engineering in control logic, system construction and system expansion

You can change and create control operation logic, create a system diagram or control loop displayed on an operator station, and add to or change the hardware configuration by using the maintenance tools specifically designed for DIASYS. This maintenance data is centrally managed through an integrated database to allow efficient engineering.

Windows-based human-machine interface with superb operability and rich functionality

Operator stations are easy to operate and use because they use the Microsoft Windows operating system to operate and monitor processes and to manage data. Operator stations provide a variety of functions to support operation, control, and monitoring of a plant. These functions include displaying plant system diagrams, trend graphs, control loop plates, and alarm events as well as logic monitoring.

Supports communication interfaces for connecting with systems from various vendors

DIASYS supports a variety of communication protocols such as ModbusTCP/IP, OPC (OLE for Process Control), and DNP3.0. This allows DIASYS to connect to and communicate with systems from other vendors.
