In this Learning-Doc, the learner should be able
describe operation of the generator under differing conditions. Discussions include start up pre-checks,
procedures for manual and automatic synchronizing, instrumentation, description
of the generator reactive capability curves, description of the “V” curves, and
use of the saturation and synchronization impedance curves. Discussions will include considerations for
loading, unloading and shutdown. Common
alarm discussions include the implication of each alarm, probable causes,
instrumentation, and actions to be taken.
