    What is the function of AMF in generator controller?

    AMF: Loss-of-voltage self-start control. It is when the grid loss of power or phase, can automatically start the generator set running power; when the grid back to normal, the generator set automatically unload and shut down.

    The main classification of diesel generator set controllers

    As the brain center of diesel generator set, the diesel generator set controller accurately detects and controls the values of the technical parameters of the generator set. Generator set controller is usually divided into: single machine controller, parallel controller, genset dual power controller.
    1, single diesel generator set controller in the application of the generator set is the most widely used a product, in general, with the start, parameter detection, alarm, shutdown and other functions, fully meet the requirements of a single generator set installed and use the standard. Simple operation is one of the biggest advantages of the stand-alone controller.
    2, diesel generator set parallel controller is mainly applied to the use of two (including) units or more running at the same time, with automatic synchronization, automatic load distribution, voltage sag adjustment and many other functions, a good solution to the defects of the previous manual parallel. Compared with the single-unit controller, the parallel controller is more complete in function.
    3, diesel generator set dual power controller is mainly used in the unit equipped with dual power switch, with utility detection, power shutdown and many other functions, widely used in the automation unit, the generator set users prefer this product.

    How does the ATS generator controller start the generator?

    A: When utility power loss or phase loss, overvoltage, undervoltage and other abnormal states, the ATS system automatically starts the standby diesel generator set according to the preset utility power loss confirmation delay, and after confirming the normal output voltage of the generator set, it automatically switches to the generator set and the load is powered by the generator set; when the utility power returns to normal, it automatically switches to resume utility power supply to the load after the preset delay confirmation. After the generator set is unloaded, it will automatically shut down after preset cooling operation.

    The composition of the generator controller?

    A: The generator controller is the brain of the generator set. It is composed of microprocessors, 32-bit display chips, industrial-grade components (capacitors, resistors), buttons, LCD indicators and other components. It mainly provides engine start-up, shutdown, data measurement, data display and fault protection functions, and also provides generator power measurement, power display and power protection functions. It also provides a remote centralized monitoring function, and users can remotely monitor and manage work through communication devices such as mobile phones or computers.

    Diesel generator set control structure and functional requirements

    Diesel generator control structure and functional requirements, the normal diesel generator set if intelligent with the utility, all need some basic requirements for the control system requirements:
    (1) the screen structure type should be fixed, using the integrated installation with the unit.
    (2) the screen with diesel generator set intelligent control unit and battery pack.
    (3) Remote control function: including remote on/off and emergency stop function.
    (4) Telecommunication function: including remote transmission of working status (operation/shutdown) and working mode (automatic/manual) signals.
    (5) Telemetry function: including telemetry of three-phase output voltage, three-phase output current, battery voltage and output power.
    (6) Communication interface: should have a communication interface (RS-485) and can provide a complete communication protocol.
    (7) Automation functions: including self-start, self-input, self-protection, self-removal and self-shutdown functions.
