RGCP-3400

Redundant Control, 5A, P1, SU

Woodward’s dual modular Redundant Genset Control Panel (RGCP) 5A, single genset without fiber optic gateway was designed to provide an additional layer of power system reliability in mission-critical applications, such as data centers, hospitals, or critical industrial pro-cesses where the cost of an outage greatly exceeds the installed cost of a redundant control system.

FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITY
Redundant Genset Control Panel for Mission-Critical Applications
Woodward’s dual modular Redundant Genset Control Panel (RGCP) provides an additional layer of power system reliability in mission-critical applications such as data centers, hospitals, or critical industrial processes where the cost of an outage greatly exceeds the installed cost of a redundant control system.
 
Based on the popular easYgen-3400 series genset control, the RGCP includes all the features, functionality and proven quality of the industry-leading easYgen-3000 series paralleling genset controls.
 
The RGCP-3400 is delivered as a fully-wired, factory tested, turnkey assembly that easily interfaces with a PLC-based SCADA system. The space-conscious design greatly simplifies switchgear construction and provides peace of mind in critical applications, where even a momentary loss of the onsite power system may result in substantial monetary loss, risk to life, or security hazards.
 
Features:
  • Fully wired, compact turnkey assembly with outside terminal blocks for wiring like a single easYgen-3400
  • Unique bias tracking firmware, for bump less transfer to the backup controller even while the generator is fully loaded and paralleled with other generators
  • CT shorting blocks for “hot-swap” of a controller without having to stop the generator
  • Automatic detection of primary/standby controller status and loss of redundancy. Local annunciation through LEDs and remote indication through potential free contacts
  • Parameter alignment monitoring between primary and standby controller and mismatch alarm
  • Available load share communication line redundancy with fiber optic ring
  • Up to 2 remote panels (RP-3000) realizable for genset control and visualization
  • Manual switchover capability for commissioning, maintenance, and troubleshooting
  • Full connectivity of up to 32 generators and 16 LS-5 circuit breaker control devices in one application
  • Operation modes: Auto, Stop, Manual, and Load/No Load test modes via RP-3000 or discrete inputs
  • Breaker control: Slip frequency / phase matching synchronization, open-close control, breaker monitoring
  • Load transfer features: open / closed transition, interchange, soft loading / soft unloading, mains parallel
  • Remote control via interface and discrete/analog inputs for adjusting speed, frequency, voltage, power, reactive power, and power factor set points
  • Multi-lingual capability: English as well as Chinese, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish

Benefits:

  • Ease of application
  • Connections are the same as to a single easYgen
  • No special programming − identical settings for each device
  • Prewired, factory tested, turnkey assembly
  • Simple installation commissioning
  • Periodic parameter alignment and mismatch alarm
  • Bump less control switching, even while under load
  • Hot-swap controller exchange without stopping the genset
  • Redundant fiber optic load sharing/communications available
  • Provision for redundant power supplies and HMIs

Applications:

  • Most often used in mission-critical applications where even a momentary loss of the onsite power system may result in substantial monetary loss, risk to life, or security hazards. 
  • Data centers
  • Hospitals
  • Correctional facilities
  • Critical industrial processes
  • Marine DP2 and DP3 vessels
