The genset control panel is equipped with digital controllers, which fulfill the functions of control, security, visualization and automation of operation, implement genset diesel start/stop manually or automatically, protect against a high coolant temperature condition, from oil depressurization in the oil system.
The most popular manufacturers of control systems for power plants are ComAp (Czech Republic) and Deep Sea Electronics (DSE, Great Britain).
InteliLite NT – a family of controllers ensuring security, monitoring and control of medium- and high-capacity generators. The controller offers many extension and communication functions with additional units. Two versions are available: MRS (manual remote start) and AMF (automatic start).
InteliLite AMF 25 – the most popular panel for DG.
Controllers for the parallel operation of diesel gensets:
InteliGen NT - main controller for one and several DGs operating in back-up or parallel mode.
MainsCompact NT and InteliMains NT BaseBox are intended for several (up to 31) gensets operating in parallel with the mains. InteliMainsNT BaseBox is compatible with InteliGenNT and InteliSysNT.
InteliCompact NT is intended for simple single and group applications requiring ATS functions, parallel operation and load distribution. The standard set of functions includes a protocol for communication with electronic engines via J1939 и CAN BUS.
InteliGen 200 is a controller for gensets operating both in backup and parallel modes. User-friendly functionality, simple configuration and installation, as well as the functions of automatic synchronization and load distribution.
InteliGen 500 is an advanced controller with a color monitor for generator units in backup and parallel mode.
The diesel genset remote monitoring and control system allows the operator to remotely control all diesel genset parameters, start/stop it and fulfill other functions, which are compatible with the diesel genset remote control console.
Monitoring functions: remote transfer of the parameters of the diesel genset, transmission of warning and emergency signals and signals of a fire and security alarm installed in the container.
Control functions: remote control of all functions of the diesel genset via the remote control console.
Monitoring and control via the Internet: it allows controlling the genset and monitoring the parameters of the technical status of the unit using an internet connection established between the diesel genset and a PC operator.
Monitoring and control via GSM mobile communications: connecting the diesel genset and the operator's computer/controller is implemented via RS232 channel using a GSM model. The data transmission function (CSD) shall be connected, 2 SIM cards are installed: at the site and at the operator. Information on the status of diesel genset systems is transferred not only to the operator's computer but also as SMS to the selected phone number.
Monitoring and control via Ethernet: a system via Ethernet communication channel allows controlling the operation of the diesel genset within a local network. Data on the status and operation modes are transferred to the operator’s computer, control is implemented from it too. Operating range - up to 300 m with the possibility of expansion using a switch.
Monitoring and control via wiring channel (via CAN bus): wired communication between the DG and the operator's computer/controller using wires. Operating range - no more than 1 km.
Thanks to the remote monitoring system, the operation of the diesel generator can be controlled using software from a computer or smartphone. When the notification function via SMS is enabled, a message will be received stating that the generator accepts the load, and turns off.
