Woodward's easYgen-3000™ Series paralleling genset controllers provide exceptional versatility and value for OEM switchgear builders, generator packagers, and system integrators. The easYgen-3000 combines complete engine-generator control and protection with advanced, peer-to-peer paralleling functionality and innovative features in a robust, attractive and user-friendly package. Its integrated LogicsManager™ programmable logic functionality provides outstanding application flexibility and can often eliminate the need for additional PLC control, yet can easily integrate with SCADA or PLC-based control systems where desired.

The easYgen-3000 gives you the advantage of standardizing on a single, affordable genset controller for many different distributed power generation applications--from stand-alone emergency backup power to parallel load sharing of up to 32 gensets in complex, segmented distribution systems with multiple utility feeds and tie breakers.

Common easYgen 3000 applications: 

  • Emergency standby: data centers, hospitals, commercial and industrial facilities
  • Distributed Generation (DG): utility-dispatchable power for peak demand response
  • Islanded prime-power: oil & gas exploration, marine, remote villages, rental/mobile
  • Microgrid: military, government, net-zero communities, universities
  • Utility paralleling: peak shaving, demand curtailment
  • Cogeneration (CHP): wastewater treatment, biogas production/containment
  • Switchgear upgrades: generator control retrofit to add load sharing/paralleling capability

 

easYgen 3000 Features & Benefits

All easYgen-3000 Series models include these standard features:

  • True RMS voltage and current sensing (gen, bus and mains) for reduced susceptibility to harmonics
  • CAN network communication/control to engine ECU (standard SAE-J1939 protocol and several proprietary engine OEM protocols are supported)
  • Serial Modbus RTU (slave) communication for SCADA annunciation and external control
  • Configuration via PC/laptop with Woodward ToolKit service tool
  • Connectivity with the RP-3000 Remote Panel for complete annunciation, control and configuration of the easYgen-3000 controller, over CANopen protocol at up to 250m distance
  • Compliance agency/marine* approvals: CE, UL/cUL, CSA, GOST-R, ABS, Lloyd's Register
    (* see marine package for further approvals)

 

The easYgen-3000 Series provide:

  • AMF (automatic mains failure) detection, decoupling and emergency run with dead bus close
  • Automatic synchronization: phase-match, positive/negative slip-frequency, run-up (dead field) paralleling
  • Circuit breaker close/open control: GCB only, GCB and MCB (ATS function), or external (no) control     
  • Proportional load sharing (isochronous or droop) of up to 32 gensets, regardless of individual size
  • Base loading, import/export control, asymmetrical loading (through external base load input)
  • Automatic load dependent start/stop for improved generation system efficiency
  • Asynchronous (induction) generator control
  • Engine and generator protection functions, with fully programmable settings

 

easYgen 3000 Mounting Styles

 The easYgen-3000 Series is available in two mounting styles: 
  

  • The door mounted easYgen-3200 and easYgen-3500 models have sealed soft keys and a large, easy-to-read backlit color LCD, with a graphical display and text that can quickly change between 14 different supported languages.
      
  • The back panel mounted easYgen-3100 and easYgen-3400 models are encased in a rugged aluminum chassis for use in harsh environments or confined spaces. Back panel mounting decreases wiring to the door, and may eliminate the need for voltage transformers to keep dangerous voltage away from the panel.
 

 The easYgen-3000 Series controllers are available in several models and packages.

 easYgen-3100-P1, easYgen-3200-P1: the Package 1 "Standard" models, for isolated operation of a single genset or load sharing of up to 32 gensets in islanded and/or parallel operation with a single utility.

 easYgen-3100-P2, easYgen-3200-P2: the Package 2 "Cogeneration" models include all the features of the easYgen-3100/3200-P1 versions with additional analog I/O expansion capability for gas engine cylinder temperature monitoring and protection, plus three tunable P.I.D.'s that can be applied to analog outputs for controlling process valves, etc. 

 easYgen-3400-P1, easYgen-3500-P1: the Package 1 "Complex System" models include all the features of the easYgen-3100/3200-P2 versions, along with a dedicated CANopen network for connectivity to up to 16 LS-5 Circuit Breaker Controls, allowing control of complex distribution systems having multiple utility feeds and tie breakers, and parallel load sharing of up to 32 generators on up to 32 different bus segments.

 easYgen-3400-P1 Marine, easYgen-3500-P1 Marine: all the features of the easYgen-3400/3500-P1 versions (including connectivity to LS-5 Marine) with additional Det Norske Veritas (DNV), German Lloyds (GL),  and Bureau Veritas (BV) marine approvals (as well as ABS and LR).

 easYgen-3500-P1 Rental: all the features of the easYgen-3500-P1 version (including connectivity to LS-5's) with additional features for the rental genset market, including 4 switchable parameter sets (selectable via 2 discrete inputs) for changing system rated voltage, frequency, real and reactive power, application and breaker transition modes, and control setpoints.

 easYgen-3400-P2, easYgen-3500-2: the Package 2 "Enhanced I/O" models mimic the features of the easYgen-3400/3500-P1 versions (including connectivity to LS-5's) but with an expanded onboard discrete and analog I/O set rather than expansion through external I/O modules.

All the above models are available with either 1-amp or 5-amp current measurement inputs.
