DG TEST BENCH
Load Bank – It is a device which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and converts or dissipates the resultant power output of the source. The purpose of a load bank is to accurately mimic the operational or “real”load that a power source will see in actual application.
Operation and Monitoring – D.G testing is controlled and monitored by SCADA (Factory Talk View SE) and data process control and calculations are done by PAC (Compact logix) & PLC (Micrologix).
Process Description – D.G connected to load bank by checking correct connections of phases.
Then by SCADA data and values are updated according to model number, and load test is started by SCADA.
When the test is running Micrologix 1400 plc reads data from DEEP SEA CONTROLLER which is connected to D.G . Data transfer of DG is done by MODBUS communication.
Then the micrologix 1400 data is messaged to compact logix , which do all the calculation and process accordingly.
After the completion of load test report is generated for all steps as required by operator.
Report include following basic data:-
- KW Load
- AC Voltage
- HERTZ Frequency
- Oil Pressure
- Ampere Rating
- Voltage tested
- Additional by requirement
