Generating System Upgrades
Generators twenty years or older are now expected to be in operation for another ten or twenty years. Unfortunately some of these systems are no longer operating properly due to lack of spare parts, replacement parts or are no longer supported by the OEMs. Operating costs are elevated due to high maintenance costs. Attrition impacts the operation because there is no one left who knows these older systems. The performance reliability and efficiency of the entire generating system are af...

Hydro TG Control Systems :: Hydro Turbine Generator Control Systems
There are many ways to create electricity. The cleanest, quietest, and often located in the most beautiful geographic locations, is by hydro power. These generators need to have controls that correctly sense pressure in the penstock pipe leading from the dam to the inlet valves of the hydro turbines, rotating frequency of the generator, voltage level and VARflow conditions to keep the equipment operating. Correct setting of acceleration, deceleration, voltage level, lubrication...
Synch Motor Control :: Synchronous Motor Control
There are very few differences between large Synchronous Generators and Synchronous Motors. The Synchronous Motor is tougher in that it can be connnected to the power line at zero speed and accelerated to full power without damage. While at speed and synchronized, both machines behave identically with respect to the voltage support while producing or consuming VARS. The DCexciters applied to each are the same; however, additional sensing, control and protection are required by the fact...
