fpControl Paralleling Device

Application

Fischer Panda Generators equipped with »xControl« or »fpControl«.


Product description

  • The »fpControl Paralleling Device« (fpControl PD-A) manages the paralleling of either two asynchronous generators with »fpControl GC-S« or two asynchronous generators with »xControl GC-S«.
  • A further application of the »fpControl PD-A« ist the shore power switch-over using the fpControl system. The Paralleling Device ensures the parallel connection of shore power and generator.
  • In both applications, the system components communicate via the fpControl CAN-Bus »fpCAN«.

Parallel connection of two asynchronous generators

  • The load is shared between the two Generators.
  • Each generator can be run solo if lower power is needed or if maintenance work on the other Generator is done.
  • Both Generators must have the same Voltage / Frequency specification (for example 230 V / 50 Hz).
