Design Services for Power Engineering

Hardware and software development for power electronics and power systems engineering

We have extensive experience in hardware and software development for power engineering. We design electronics using the latest microprocessors, microcontrollers, and FPGAs that meet global standards and future load patterns. 

With our engineering support, our clients create mass-produced devices and programs for a variety of applications: substation automation, energy storage solutions, smart city infrastructure, and digital twins of physical systems or processes.

From startups to mature companies from all around the world, organizations of all types have commissioned us to design advanced solutions for electricity meters, protection relays, grid communications, and power conversion systems.

Also, we develop distribution management systems with visualization, reporting, and archiving tools. One of our focuses is green energy power solutions and eco-friendly technologies. As a result, our power engineering solutions cover all market segments.

Solutions We Offer

Engineering services for green technology systems & digital transformation

Electricity meters

We design for our clients single-phase or polyphase meters with accurate energy measurement and efficient wireless and wired communications. With advanced integrated circuits and reference platforms, our engineers can significantly reduce the time and costs of your project while adding extra safety features.

Also, we work with measurement equipment to ensure power quality: design technical and commercial energy accounting systems (EAS).

Protection relays

We design compact and multifunction relays and various modules for relay protection systems. Protective relays work as sensors and monitor the current and/or voltage of the power system to detect the location of a fault and activate the circuit breaker. 
 

Here is a list of modules that we can design and manufacture for our customers:

  • Digital protection relays and controllers

  • Electronic monitoring relays

  • AC analog input modules

  • DC analog input/output modules

  • Processor modules

  • Communication modules

  • Power supply modules

  • Binary input modules

  • Expansion modules

Data concentrators and communications for smart grids  


We design wireless and wired communication systems for smart power grids and create hardware and software solutions for data concentrators.

Power conversion system (PCS)

We create efficient power conversion systems (PCS) for various applications: power grids, PV panels, and batteries for e-vehicles and industrial automation.

Here are just a few examples of our designs and implemented features:

Control Panel
Industrial Control Panel Development
We designed an industrial control panel based on FPGA, CPU Sitara by IT, Linux, and RTOS (AMP). Our team was responsible for industrial, mechanical, and hardware design, software development, and functional testing on our test bench.As part of this system, our team developed our own IP C37.94.
IP C37.94
C37.94 Transceiver IP Core for Teleprotection Equipment
We designed the C37.94 transceiver IP core for teleprotection equipment with full test coverage. It is available for sale to companies that want to reduce the time and costs of their FPGA projects significantly.C37.94 are optical interfaces that transfer relay protection information between teleprotection devices and digital multiplexers over optical fibre channels.
ATS
Automatic Transfer Switch
We designed a hardware and software complex to monitor the phase, voltage, and current of power supply channels and switch to the backup channel in case of emergencies.The software of the STM32MP1 MCU communication module was based on Embedded Linux and assembled via Yocto. C++ was used for a set of applications running in user space and interacting via D-Bus. The basic control module was designed on STM32F429.
