Generator Control Panel
The Generator control panel has been designed to meet the needs of most generator applications without being too technical or requiring a technician to program it. It’d features were initially designed to accommodate the requirements of generators being used in irrigation systems where direct diesel power was not convenient or financially viable. For example bore pumps where a dedicated line shaft pump is an expensive proposition when compared with an electric submersible.
It features all the engine protection that is expected of a modern control panel monitoring Oil Pressure, Engine cooling temperature whether the engine is air or water, battery charge voltage and over speed. In addition to this the control panel monitors the voltage level both high and low, Hz or cycles of the alternator and the load being put on the set, if anything goes wrong the controller will pick it up.
An additional important feature on the panel is the start delay contactor which allows the engine to start and settle into smooth operation before turning on the power to whatever is being driven. This also works in the reverse when the engine receives a stop signal the power is immediately switched off to the output and the engine allowed to settle back down before actually stopping. This feature is critical when powering electric motors controlled by electronic motor controllers which look for immediate accurate voltage.
The generator control panel is also configured to read a pressure transducer which is supplied where required which can monitor the water pressure in the delivery line of a pump adding another level of protection to the system. If the pressure exceeds or drops below operator defined levels the controller will stop the engine to protect pipelines and pumps.
The Generator Control Panel has three different methods in which it can start a generator set:
- Manual Start – Push the manual button then the Start Button
- Auto Timed – Starting in Auto mode a start and run time can be programmed to start daily or use 16 different start event times.
- Two wire start – close a no voltage two wire circuit to start the engine.
