Control Technologies in Automation

Synchronization System:

The Synchronization panel will operate on an automatic mains failure system, so that when the main supply is interrupted on one or all phases the generator sets will start-up together. After an initial warm-up period the generators will synchronize with each other by means of motorized circuit breakers or contractors onto a common bus. Next, the motorized change-over switch will be closed and the load connected to the main distribution box. The load share units continuously monitor the load and during low demand periods one or two generators will be shut down to save on fuel consumption.

As demand rises again the second and third generators will be restarted, synchronized and reconnected to load. When the AMF control unit detects that the main supply has been restored an adjustable observation period is activated before the main supply is reconnected. A cool down period will then follow after which the generator sets will be shut down.

Features of Synchronization System:

1. Microprocessor-based Auto-Synchronizer.

2. One Synchronizing unit controls systems with no. of different sets of breaker closing parameters.

3. Suitable for Diesel generator units, gas generator and main power supply.

4. Synchronizer unit suitable for automatic control of the generators.

5. Both Manual and Auto-Synchronizing feature.

6. High Accuracy Analog/Digital meters

7. Digital frequency meters and volt-meters provide both generator and bus measurements.
