Adjustable-speed generator matches the load

Called an industry first, OptiGen adjustable-speed generator automatically adjusts generated power output to match various load requirements for standby power applications.

04/01/2003


Called an industry first, OptiGen adjustable-speed generator automatically adjusts generated power output to match various load requirements for standby power applications. Designed to supply up to 250% rated power for electric motor starting, OptGen has about half the size a fixed-speed unit. The new generator’s exclusive power electronics and engine control regulates engine speed, monitors electrical power consumption, while maintaining constant voltage and frequency output during all load conditions. Shown at NMW in Chicago, OptiGen is installed like a standard fixed-speed generator, without the need for extra wiring, pad space, or electrical enclosures. An optional UPS module can be added for applications where power transfer time is critical.
