December: The application of WOODWARD redundant genset control panel RGCP3400 in China
WOODWARD’s dual modular Redundant Genset Control Panel (RGCP) was designed to provide an additional layer of power system reliability in mission-critical applications, such as data centers, hospitals, or critical industrial processes. Specially designed firmware allows the two controls to operate in tandem in a primary/standby configuration. Should the CPU of the primary unit fail, control is automatically transferred to the stand-by unit and “bump-less” genset control is resumed; there is negligible effect on generator stability or load sharing during the transfer, even during start-up and synchronization.

December: The first national standard of genset controller was officially released
The national standard “Reciprocating internal combustion engine driven alternating current generating sets–Controller” was approved to start, which was made an application by the National Standardization Technical Committee of Mobile Power Station. It was led by Lanzhou Power Station& Vehicle Institute Co., Ltd. and organized by SmartGen. A total of six enterprises jointly took part in the drafting and the enacting of this standard. It took four years to get passed and was officially released on December 28, 2018. Finally, we could make a farewell to an era which has no national standard for generating sets controller.

With 20 years of perseverance, SmartGen has gained unanimous praise from customers and has continuously improved the market popularity. Under the guidance of brand strategy, SmartGen will set great goals, strengthen the mission and build a benchmark for the times of large country and heavy enterprises in the future. We will also make every effort to open a new journey of higher quality development of century-old SmartGen and finally realize the dream of ” Manufacturing Power”.

Gensets Parallel Application

Gensets parallel has been widely used in the gensets industry. The advantages include flexible operation, priority changeover, cost reduction, energy saving and environmental protection. Weak things united become strong.

Six gas gensets were assembled and debugged in a domestic factory. The factory adopts six HGM9510 parallel cabinets of SmartGen, one 3000A load output cabinet and one HMU15 remote touch screen monitoring control module. It adopts 7 standard 2.2M distribution cabinets and suitable layout that one load output cabinet is in the middle. HMU15 remote touch screen monitoring control module adopts RS485 alternating connection method of one group including 1, 3, 5 and another group including 2, 4, 6.

In debugging parallel system, we must check the lines and cables, and test single unit closing one by one. In the single unit closing test, the main test object is the automatic speed regulation and automatic voltage regulation function, which is the necessary condition for parallel. If there is circulating current after parallel, please check the speed regulation or voltage regulation. If the reactive power fluctuates greatly, please check the voltage regulation part and whether there is a mutual inductor on the voltage regulator plate. If the active power fluctuates greatly, please check the speed regulation part and whether there is a conflict between the speed regulation device and the control module speed regulation.

The synchronization time of each unit is about 5 seconds and the parallel is with load and unload. The manual and automatic parallel is normal and the start is normal. The parallel with load is normal and the power distribution is normal.

It is the first time the clients used the parallel function. Everyone had a new understanding of the parallel system after experiencing and accepting the training. The successful parallel and user’s satisfied smile are the best evaluations of our parallel products.
