Designing system-level controls in a power system

Electrical engineers specifying paralleling power systems must understand the difference between generator set paralleling and system-level control

Original air date August 25, 2020
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.
