Generator Synchronizing with Different combination of Gensets

Hai,

 

our Rigs are powered by CAT 3512B Engines, Each Rig 4 Engines, We want to Repower one of the Diesel engine with Gas engine, CAT is not giving any Gas Genset for Drilling Application.

 

we have got one propoasal of 600KW natural gas engines, please look at the attached drawings of how we want to install, 

we don't want to do much modification in VFD House.

 

the 600KW x 2 Engines are already synchronised outside and then for transition from Gas power to Diesel power without blackout Rig, we want to have short time synchronizing option.

 

so here how the synchronizing can be done? please give your valuable suggestion.

 

Thanks

Suresh

Hi Dear,

You can use woodward controlleres and you can achive your requirements. Use 2 No's easYgen 3500XT-P1 (one for each new gas generator) and 1 No. LS-512. (Tie Breaker)
