Excitation System

CAPABILITIES

The RTX Power offers state-of-art equipment for both new and retrofit hydro, coal, nuclear or natural gas fired power plants.

The RTX Power is also compatible with all major generator OEMs, such as, GE, Westinghouse, Siemens, BBC, Alstom, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Allis Chalmers etc.

The hardware and software of the system can be customized to meet specific functionality and can be scaled up to an output of 10,000 Adc.

Reivax powerful processor unit and open software architecture used in the RTX Power can also be scaled up to include more functionality, such as, governor control and a complete automation package for control / protection of the generator unit.

EXPERIENCE

Reivax has been supplying excitation systems to the power generation industry for 25 years and has currently more than 1,100 systems in operation. Replacements include GE Alterex / Althyrex / Amplidyne, Westinghouse WTA / WMA / MGR, Allis Chalmers Regulex, etc.

HARDWARE

Assembled in standard Rittal cabinets,

the basic system offers:

  • - Voltage regulator (CPX) with an

Automatic and a Manual channel;

  • - Fast I/O interface (MultiCan) with 48

digital inputs, 24 digital outputs, 12 analog outputs, 8 analog inputs, 3 PT inputs and 3 CT inputs;

  • - An air-cooled six (6) pulse thyristor

bridge and a firing circuit (DPCan).

The DPCan is equipped with it’s own CPU and I/O (16 digital in, 8 digital out and 6 analog in) for logic, monitoring and protection of thyristor bridges;

  • - A user friendly graphical HMI touch screen (PAN);

  • - Each printed circuit board (PCB) is

enclosed in a metal chassis in order to

meet the most stringent requirements for Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI).

REDUNDANCY OPTIONS

The RTX Power offers the most redundancy options of all systems on the market today. The reliable basic system can be combined with the following redundancy options for additional reliability and availability:

  • - Redundant Voltage regulator (CPX)

each with an Automatic and a Manual channel. System performance is monitored by a built-in watchdog in each CPX. Transfer to redundant CPX is bumpless;

  • - Redundant I/O interface (MultiCan)

including redundant control terminal

blocks and wiring from incoming

customer termination. The I/O interface can be expanded to increase the number of I/O points;

  • - Redundant thyristor bridges with

enhanced control interface redundancy to enable CPX I or II to operate with either thyristor bridge;

  • - Redundant cooling fans for each thyristor bridge. Each thyristor bridge is enabled with independant

conduction and temperature

  • - Over Excitation Limiter (OEL);

  • - Under Excitation Limiter (UEL);

  • - Stator Current Limiter (SCL);

  • - Volt/Hertz Limiter;

  • - Power Systems Stabilizer (PSS2A/2B);

  • - Field Overvoltage/Overcurrent protection;

  • - Loss of Sensing Voltage protection;

  • - Loss of Field protection;

  • - Field Overtemperature protection;

  • - Volt/Hertz protection;

  • - Rotor (Field) ground protection;

  • - Thyristor bridge conduction monitoring;

  • - Air flow monitoring;

  • - Thyristor bridge temperature monitoring;

  • - Field flashing time limit protection;

  • - Watchdog monitoring; -Excitation transformer over current protection

and temperature monitoring.

  • - Dynamic current share between converters.

monitornig etc. On-line maintenance

of thyristor bridges is also available;

  • - On-line maintenance can be

performed on controls and thyristor bridge assembles while the redundant system is in operation.

systems

requires

very

little

maintenance,

Reivax

recommends

periodic maintenance to be scheduled in order to maintain the

original state of the equipment.

Reivax maintains a 24/7 hotline for emergency support in order to respond to critical situations. Field personnel are available from three (3) service location in US / Canada.

Nerc compliance

testing

NERC compliance testing is becoming a more common requirement in the industry as NERC needs to know the capability of generating plants and the anticipated performance during steady state and fault conditions. Reivax offers on-site services, compiling of measured data and excitation modeling for submittal in a report to NERC.

Pss tuning study

Reivax provides PSS setting analysis based on modeling and simulation, on-site tuning of PSS parameters and final documentation for submission as per NERC dynamic modeling requirements.

Extended warranty

As the original warranty expires, Reivax offers the customers further peace of mind, by providing an extended warranty option. The extended warranty is normally accompanied with a scheduled tune-up service.

Turn-key solutions

In addition to services related to providing a turn-key project, Reivax also provides all related equipment, such as, excitation transformer, iso-phase bus duct, non-segregated bus duct, cables, slip ring/brush assembly, bearing /pedestal modifications etc.
