Abstract: This paper proposed a |seven-stage standby redundant structured| (SeS²RS) hydrogen cooling system (HCS) for generators cooling in a typical thermal power plant. The proposed system is equally reliable for steam and gas turbine-based generating sections. The system reliability of the proposed SeS²RS model is performed using MATLAB. The entire process control and instrumentation of the system is designed and simulated on Factory Talk ViewSE, a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) platform by Rockwell automation. This process model is designed as per specifications guided by IEC 61131-3, IEEE C37.1-2007, IEEE 1413-2003, and ISA 100a.

Keywords: hydrogen cooling systems; HCS; human-machine interface; HMI; power plant automation; supervisory control; data acquisition; SCADA; system reliability; Weibull distribution; control and instrumentation; generator cooling; steam turbines; gas turbines; modelling; simulation; process control.
