CLASS #105—EGCP-3

CLASS #105—EGCP-3

Description

CLASS #105 - EGCP-3This class will give you the opportunity to learn more about the basics of power management using the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC. During the course you will learn about the theory, installation, programming, operation and maintenance of the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC with the help of various models, simulators and engines. The hands-on part of the training will include time for programming, adjustments and troubleshooting techniques on the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC.

CLASS OBJECTIVES

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a strong foundation on power generation theory pertaining to the EGCP-3 LS andthe EGCP-3 MC.
  • Field calibrate and adjust the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of power management issues such as; soft loading andunloading, base loading, peak shaving, import/export control, and power transfer.
  • Describe the concepts of isochronous load sharing, baseload, process control, import / exportcontrol, VAR/Power Factor control and droop.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of methods of synchronizing, and paralleling of electricalgenerators.

CLASS OUTLINE

A. Concepts of Basic Load Control Theory

  • A review covering basic power generation, Load Control Modes, and paralleling generators.

B. EGCP-3 Control Systems

  • EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC features, control modes and applications.
  • Input & Outputs (I/O) of the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC.
  • EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC Programming menus and use of the ServLink / WatchWindow software.
  • Synchronization, Load Control, VAR/PF Control and Process Control.
  • Calibration and Adjustment of the EGCP-3 LS and the EGCP-3 MC control.

C. Hands on familiarization
