Generator Control and Maintenance Ltd

Generator control systems oversee the proper operation of a generator, managing parameters like voltage, frequency, and speed. It consists of components like engine sensors, circuit breakers, Generator Control Panel and actuator devices that work together to monitor and control the functions of the generator set

We specialise in providing bespoke ‘control system’ solutions. And, when the power fails, we won’t.

It uses sensors, a controller, actuators and protection devices to monitor and regulate the performance of a generator. Sensors detect critical parameters like temperature, speed and load to feed information to the control module. The controller then processes this data and issues commands to actuators to precisely control the output of the generator control system, ensuring safe and efficient operation. 

The controller is the brain of the Generator Control System. Based on preset limits programmed into it, the controller processes the sensor inputs and determines what actions are needed. For example:

The Control System aims to maintain key parameters like frequency, voltage and speed within safe limits for optimal generator performance. It can start and stop the generator automatically according to programmable schedules.

Generator Control Panel is an enclosure containing control circuits and components that enable local or remote control and monitoring of a generator. It receives inputs from generator sensors and output commands to actuators. A generator control panel oversees key functions of a generator. The key components inside a typical generator control panel include:
  • An industrial controller that processes sensor inputs and outputs commands.
  • Input terminals that receive voltages signals from sensors.
  • Output terminals that send control signals to actuators.
  • Circuit protections like fuses and contactors.
  • Indicators, alarms and relay modules to display the generator’s condition. 

Generator Control Panel receives readings from sensors. Based on pre-programmed limits, the controller in the generator control panel provides commands to switching devices to control the generator’s functions. The Generator Control Panel also displays operational parameters, status and fault messages through indicators and gauges on its front panel.

Proper functioning of each component within a generator control panel is vital to ensure safe and reliable operation of the entire generator system. GCM Ltd. can design, supply and install customized generator control panels to meet your specific requirements.

Two primary control schemes dominate most generator drives: DROOP control and FREQUENCY control. Despite being the more sophisticated of the two, FREQUENCY control paradoxically appears to be the easier one for most individuals to comprehend.

Load management is a crucial mechanism preventing the simultaneous operation of excessive high-current loads. Typically orchestrated through a controller coupled with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) and an external relay, this process involves the relay functioning as a switch. This allows an electronic controller to seamlessly turn a load on or off, efficiently managing electrical demands.

The governor controls the fuel to the engine to establish the speed of the engine, and thereby the frequency of the generator. Learning Objectives As a result of this lesson, you will be able to: 1. Describe the functional relationship between the engine control governor and the fuel injection system.
