DMC 1500 Paralleling System by Cummins Power Generation. Courtesy: Cummins Power GenerationThe DMC 1500 Paralleling System combines Cummins Power Generation’s PowerCommand microprocessor-based control technology with a new icon-based graphical user interface designed to maximize user-friendliness. The system consists of a PowerCommand system-level digital master control integrated with custom-engineered switchgear. The DMC 1500 communicates directly with the PowerCommand generator set and transfer switch controls for seamless integration. DMC 1500 Paralleling Systems are offered for low- or medium-voltage applications. Typical emergency power applications include water treatment plants and office buildings. DMC 1500 systems also can be used for prime power at remote locations where utility power is unavailable or unreliable. With the DMC 1500 system, power transitions can be open or closed, in either fast (100 msec) or gradual ramping mode. The system includes utility paralleling functions for peak-shaving, base-loading, and load add/load shed sequence control. The standard DMC 1500 accommodates four generators and can be expanded for up to eight generators.
