Dispatch control at a shunting yard

This article describes a system for dispatch control over the operations of automated machinery on the railroad.


Metallurgy

Automated process control system for a thermal electric furnace for smelting silicon-based alloys

The authors describe an automated process control system for a thermal electric furnace for smelting silicon-based alloys. The use of reliable equipment and advanced software, using original control algorithms and know-how, permitted the investment in creating the system to be recouped in one year.


Ecology

Automated system for alerting the public to gas hazards

This article examines a system for alerting the public to gas hazards, including a description of the equipment, software and hardware that comprises the system.


Power Engineering

Automated control system for upper water level and water discharge through a hydraulic turbogenerator unit

The control system for upper water level and water discharge through a hydraulic turbogenerator unit described in this article allows for more effective use of water resources, increases the generator's efficiency and automates the metering of the daily, monthly and annual flow of water through a hydroelectric station.


Municipal Economy

Automated process control system for sewage pumping stations at water treatment stations

The system described in this article is in operation at working water treatment stations in Nizhevartovsk.


Food Industry

Integrated solutions for onboard computing systems on spacecraft

This article describes integrated solutions for onboard computing systems on spacecraft, including a failure-resistant onboard computer and a built-in peripheral controller. The author cites the results of practical experience, which will be of interest to developers of onboard equipment.


Development
Electric Power Industry

Automated system for controlling and metering the primary indicators of energy consumption at industrial enterprises

The authors examine the hardware and software required for controlling and metering the primary indicators of power users and controllers at industrial enterprises.


The EKOM-3000 data collection and relay device

This article reviews a device for collecting and relaying data for automated systems for controlling and reporting on energy resources.


Information Display

Device for the integrated display of radiolocation and mapping information

The authors describe a device for receiving and displaying radiolocation information as part of an automated dispatcher workstation.


Monitoring and Measuring Systems

Automating tests of chemical batteries

This article relates the experience of creating an automated experimental unit for testing chemical batteries in electrical power systems for spacecraft.


Digital mobile system for collecting acoustical information

The authors examine an automated station intended to conduct remote measurements of acoustical fields in natural conditions and transmit the results by radio.
