Generator Set and Critical Power System Controls Webinar Part 1

Instructor: Steve Evans ComAP

Dates: October 20, 22, 27 & 29

Course Description:

Once the Alternator is combined with a Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine (RICE) and becomes a generator set, automation is required for safe and reliable operation. This module will examine the control systems of the modern generator set, from the prime mover throttle to the kilowatt output, to maximize operational functionality and flexibility of the complete power system. Various Control Theories and Modes of Operation, including PID theory for closed loop control systems, the effects of power system faults, the role of the Dedicated Purpose Controller and the Programmable Logic Controller, Base Load, Peak Shaving, Load Management, Grid Support, and Fuel Optimization will be discussed in detail. The module wraps up with a look at industry trends and the effects on the future of the power generation business. We will discuss the Smart Grid and the importance RICE Distributed Generation will be to the grid in the future. (4 Hrs)

This Module is taken directly from the George Rowley Advanced School of On-Site Power
