On-line educational tool for the parallel operation of the synchronous generators
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents a PC and a PIC microcontroller based an on-line educational tool for the monitoring and controlling of the parallel operation of the synchronous generators. The presented tool measures the voltages, the frequencies, the phase sequences, and the synchronism time data of the generators through microcontroller. The measured data, the voltage graphics, and the status of the parallel operation conditions are monitored on the computer instantaneously. The parallel operation of the generators is controlled with the developed tool automatically. The educational tool is user-friendly, real-time, reliable, and precise. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
