Reading The Tao for the First Time

Time flies, I am thirty-seven years old this year. In several different companies, I contribute the passion of youth or live in a state of ignorance. Over ten years has passed after graduation, time is fleeting.
On July 10th, I formally joined SmartGen.
Although I only work a few days, I had several informal chats with Chairman Yang by chance. Perhaps it is a long time to engage in production management and I have more contact with militarized management. For the conversation of leaders, I always consciously tell what is the command and what is demand. However, to my surprise, Mr. Yang often talk to me about The Tao.
Mr. Yang seriously connects The Tao with national self-confidence and company management philosophy, speaks with fervour and assurance, at that time, I am shocked. It seems that the shock doesn’t stimulate me enough, Mr. Yang continues to say,” I also wrote a book about The Tao, give you this book as a gift.” I have to admit, at that moment, I feel like that I am too naive even though I am thirty-seven. This leader treats The Tao very seriously.
The Tao, Way to Evergreen is very thick. After reading the preface and author’s preface, the words in chats are present in the book in front of me. I can feel the learned and refined, natural and unrestrained of Mr. Yang as a writer. I can feel the capable and experienced, wise and farsighted of Mr. Yang as the enterprise leader. I can feel the national self-confidence of Mr. Yang as the traditional culture researcher. I think this book is really worth reading carefully.

I had read a few sentences about The Tao curiously long time ago. The sentences always read rhythmic, but the meaning is hard to understand. Especially for some popular idioms or sentences, such as “The Tao cannot be depicted exactly because of the constrain of verbal description”, “Nature is absolutely fair and not merciful for any species specially”, “The universe is eternal”, “The best people are like water”, in addition to the inexplicable worship sense for ancient, I really didn’t have more feelings.

However, in Mr. Yang’s book, in the sharing session of Yang’s The Tao, the ideas of the ancient sages, the exposition about the Confucian, Buddhist and western ancient philosophers, all of them corroborate each other skillfully and particularly. This makes me feel that I have a sense of achievement and pride because I can feel the spirits of master’s thought. From the philosophical thinking of ancients, I have found some words or examples that can warn or encourage us. Perhaps we still cannot totally understand the language of the saints, but with help of The Tao, Way to Evergreen, we can taste the fragrance of wisdom in easy and humorous language of the book.

Learning The Tao is not only learning the book, but learning thinking and life. A book, your feeling and the sharing session, help us open up a new world.
In the future, it depends on ourselves.
The above feelings are what I want to share with you.

A Tea Party: Offer Advice for SmartGen

In order to cultivate more excellent talents, SmartGen launched a talent training plan in early 2018.

The first half of 2018 has passed, in order to discover more talents, our company recently invited some employees of every department to attend the tea party. We hope that our employees could give advice and suggestions for the development of our company.
First of all, the general manager of SmartGen briefly introduces the company’s current business condition and future strategic planning. Then, around the issues such as “how to improve the quality of products”, “QCC”, “employee assistance” and “employee development”, the employees expressed their own opinions and put forward their suggestions.

The leaders of every department listened to the suggestions carefully and gave a response to some problems that could be solved on the spot. For those problems that could not be solved, our leaders will open the symposium and give feedback later.

Read ten thousand books, travel ten thousand miles. At last, our company gave the book called “The Effective Executive“ to every participant as a gift.

Human resource is the first resource. SmartGen will continue to cultivate talents in a variety of ways, encourage innovation, provide users with better products and services.

Genset Parallels with Genset+Genset Parallels in Grid

A gas station in Shanxi province needs two gas generating units to be paralleled first and then parallel in grid. Usually the mains supply for a certain load, the generator set is reserved, in the peak period of electricity consumption, considering the cost of electricity, a generator set automatically start and close, the other is reserved, gens
parallels with mains, gens supply for the surplus load. If the residual load exceeds the rated power of a single unit, the other will automatically start and close, then
parallels with genset and parallels in grid. So the two units will share load to achieve the peak clipping mode.

When the load is reduced to available load of the single unit, the auto load of the standby genset will be transferred to the main genset and the standby unit will open and stop. When the load can be supplied by mains after reducing, the main genset will be transferred to mains by the automatic load, then open and stop. The load is supplied by mains.

In this project, the efficient use of energy is a bright spot. The radiating water tanks of two gensets use a 12 cubic large water tank. Through the running of gensets, the hot water of cylinder will be circulated and heat the gas pump of the gas station.

In this project, we need to use two HGM9510 parallel cabinet and one HGM9560 parallel in grid cabinet. After simply setting, the auto load peak clipping mode can be realized. It can reduce the electricity cost for customers.

Set Sail: Woodward New Products

The mould rains ends and summer wind is hot.
There are many cicadas in high willows.


Time flows away as running water. Time goes by quietly and it is July. The first batch of new Woodward control modules will set sail to the world from here, across the mountains and sea!

Since SmartGen and Woodward had jointly released a series of new products on April 11th, more than 60 days had already passed.

We are ready to set sail and finally the day is coming. This is just a new beginning, we will leave our expectations in the long march. Woodward series products will continue to be updated, hoisting the sails to travel in the vast sea!

Rare Phenomenon: The First Generation Works with the Newest

16 years ago, in the summer of 2002, two sets SmartGen first generation genset auto start control modules (mains sampling) GAM-IVe started to serve the communications department and formed the power system of “two gens and one mains”.


Since then, our control modules have been work for 5800 days and never stopped.

After 16 years, one of them has faults and has been changed to the latest model HGM6120NC.

The phenomenon of “the first generation works with the newest” has rarely appeared. We all believe that whey will surely cooperate with each other and fight side by side!

Where did our control modules serve? At the seaside, they have just served the “SCO”.
Who made you 16 years ago? Who dressed you up? Those who sent you will wait for you to come home, clean the dust during a journey for you and write your name in the history of SmartGen.
