Parallel Operation of Standby Generators
Operating multiple generators in parallel is a cost-effective and reliable means of providing high-capacity standby power systems for large facilities, such as data centers, hospitals, and water/wastewater treatment plants. This webinar will review the principles of parallel operation and describe how generators and their controls must be specified for successful application. Parallel operation with the utility for closed-transition transfer or peak shaving will also be covered.
Learning Objectives: While viewing this webinar, attendees will:
- Learn the characteristics generators must share to operate in parallel with each other.
- Receive an introduction to the concept of synchronism and manual and automatic synchronizing schemes.
- Review how the operation of the governor and voltage regulator differ between isolated and parallel operation.
- Become familiar with additional requirements for paralleling with a utility source.
