Since paralleling generator sets has changed drastically from the discrete components and operator-based systems in the early 1970s to today’s autonomous microprocessor-based technology, the control boundaries between the system-level control and generator set paralleling control has also changed.
This webcast goes beyond paralleling generator sets and dives into the system-level design. It discusses the role and value of controls at a system level in a power system. Different failures modes that must be considered are discussed to ensure a safe and reliable power system operation.
- Recognize the common building blocks of a backup power system and its functionalities.
- Discuss the functionalities of a system-level control and how it fits in a power system.
- Describe common failure mode scenarios that must be considered when specifying a system-level control for a safe and reliable operation.
- Explain the different use case scenarios for system-level control to better understand the value it brings to a power system.
