Types of excitation system

On my last post,i already discuss about excitation system for generator.I explain generally about basic operation and application for excitation system.

For more detail about this topic,i want share some information about several types of excitation system that commonly used for generator.

I hope with it can bring up some guide line and basic knowledge about excitation system for generator.I suggest for more detail information and understanding,please contact your local generator supplier.Below are listed types of excitation system for generator :- read more

Generator exitation

What is the excitation?The main purpose of excitation system for generator is to supply the power source to the rotor field coil.Excitation system produce the field current and it controlled by the automatic voltage regulator (AVR).I already discuss about automatic voltage regulator on my last post.

This field current controller is important to ensure the generator running in the suitable voltage.It also controlled the value of current when generator connected to a large load.It will receive or delivery the required level for reactive power ( kVAr). read more

Controller method for automatic voltage regulator

Basically automatic voltage regulator for generator have a 2 mode selection.It is with full automatic function and manual function.

I already discuss about AVR function and basic operation in my last post.Please refer to basic of automatic voltage regulator.i hope it can make a clear view and understanding about AVR function in generator.

This time i want share some information about controller method that commonly used for AVR for generator.For latest design of AVR,manufacture put a two(2) selection for AVR controller mode.It is Automatic and Manual mode. read more

Generator Rating

Usually the generator is designed to capable to delivery the power supply required due to time basic ( hour ) to ensure reliable operation and prevent serious breakdown.

Typically a given set can deliver more power for fewer hours per year, or less power continuously. That is a standby set is only expected to give its peak output for a few hours per year, whereas a continuously running set, would be expected to give a somewhat lower output, but literally continuously, and both to have reasonable maintenance and reliability. read more

Diesel Generator

This equipment is very common use in power generator industry or backup power supply system.We can found it at many places likes hotel,construction site,factory,hospital,engineering sites,oil and gas industry,on ship and many more.

It is the combination of mechanical power source with electrical generator or in others name it call an “alternator” to generated the electricity.For the mechanical power source,it use the engine powered by fuel.Normally it use diesel due to price and capability of performance.

Diesel generator is completely design with control panel,base,canopy,diesel tank,engine compartment,distribution box,circuit breaker and starting system in one compact package unit. read more
