Power generation facility in the Caribbean upgrades obsolete control system.
The original analog equipment provided speed control, synchronizing and load control in separate control modules. The new system provides a fully integrated control system in one package with the Speed Control, Synchronizing, Droop Control, Isochronous Load Sharing, and Base Load Control.
In addition to individual generator control, one module provides control of the CDE interconnection with utility, including synchronizing all generators back to the utility.
GCS Reference: 7278
