The Board of Trustees of Eastern Illinois University is seeking proposals from qualified proposers to provide all labor and material to replace the existing Bailey PLC-based boiler control system and upgrade the human-machine interface (HMI) for boilers #2 and #4. The existing control system utilizes a series of Bailey PLC controllers mounted in a central control panel and a graphical operator interface running on a PC with Wonderware software. The system controls 2 coal fired stoker-fed steam boilers (#2 and #3) and 2 natural gas/#2 oil fired D tube standby package units (#4 and #5). The basic scope of work will include complete turn-key installation, programming, commissioning, loop tuning and boiler testing of a replacement control system for existing Bailey PLC controllers on boilers #2 and #4, and common plant controllers only. Functions and controllable parameters shall be duplicated in all respects in the new proposed control package. Communication between the control operator and the controllable parameters be accomplished both by operation at the controller, or through the HMI. The PC running the HMI shall be furnished by EIU. Graphic presentation of the variables shall utilize Wonderware software application as it does presently. The graphics package shall be accessible from the worldwide web via the campus data network.
