Automatic synchronisers are used in generator applications which require automatic run-up and or remote operation. TCL have supplied and installed automatic synchronisers in many applications and can supply a standalone device or incorporate the necessary control functions within the control system.
TCL have developed a phase matching control algorithm which can be added to the control software of a PLC or DCS control system. The phase matching algorithms match the phase of the incoming and running voltages and issue a circuit breaker close signal. The phase matching control allows much faster synchronizing times which may be critical in emergency generator applications.
