Save Money

All-Inclusive Package = Standardization

Most control manufacturers sell a lot of additional [software] features. Standardization to a minimum of part numbers and component variants, helps you save money.

Your benefits:

    • optimized operations and service stock levels
    • optimized purchasing and operational processes
    • Standardized control boxes that works with every make of engine, generator, inverter, breaker
    • Very complex applications handled with standard controls, no software amendments required!
      [eg. airports, large data-centers, heavy fuel oil power plants, steam- or gas-turbine applications]
    • Reduces need for PLC distributed modules and wiring

    Software Simulation possibility

    • drastically reduce upfront engineering efforts
      [eg. very complex datacenters, microgrids, … ]

Consolidate functionalities into one controller

Merging and centralizing device functionality saves money, due to

    • less software tools for your service department
    • ‘lean thinking’ in your process control
      [often easier to adjust and more precise]

Single functions get included in an easYgen3000XT:

    • AVR – active voltage regulation for the generator ( with exciter-10)
    • speed control
    • synchronization
    • generator protection
    • mains / utility protection
    • busbar protection
    • display visualization
    • power management
    • breaker control (with LS-x devices)
    • load sharing

Microgrid

More and more customers demand microgrid functionality. Leveraging on standard functionaliy saves money.

    • Microgrid operating modes support higher level Microgrid controllers and help to make complex software architecture more lean
    • purpose-built controls are designed to manage your distributed energy resources (eg. PV inverter, …), consumers and utility. This enables you to focus on application specific needs
    • peer-peer control, as a back-up when master Microgrid control fails
    • small scale PV inverters can get integrated without a dedicated Microgrid controller
    • software simulation of the ‘load depended start stop’ functionality

Global solution

Localization can be costly – save money using a standard software!

    • 14 build-in languages + additional languages via the “localization tool”
    • certifications and approvals to serve our global markets

long term, future-proof solution

Save money by optimizing the life cycle costs:

    • proven and long term supported standard control modules
    • standardized future-proof approach
      [devices with custom software result in very expensive software modifications, once a component or the control gets replaced]
    • Woodward has decades of experience in the control market

Replace simple PLCs

save the money for additional PLCs:

    • many logical or analog operations can be handled by the controls
