Power generation is no longer the primary domain of electric utilities. Many electrical engineering and maintenance personnel now have the responsibility for non utility generator systems.
How do you know if your generator control problems result from a deficiency in the prime mover or in the voltage regulator/exciter? Perhaps it's neither; maybe you're just facing grid fluctuations. But how do you know?
When it comes to malfunctions in geneators and voltage regulators/exciters and prime movers (and their effects), there's not much information out there for maintenance engineers or electricians. And to make matters worse, the information that is out there is often unnecessarily complicated and hard to follow.
Our 2-Day Generators and Voltage Regulators course is designed to answer many of these questions. It includes a detailed study of power generators and voltage regulators, and the interaction between the two. The course also provides a solid understanding of generator paralleling, VAR flows, and generator/regulator response to changing loads and system voltages. A good working knowledge of polyphase AC theory is recommended as a prerequisite; however, a refresher of the important fundamentals is presented at the beginning of the course.
This course is designed to enable participants to:
