Prime Power Switchgear Systems for Power in Unreliable Environments

- Friday, April 16, 2021
Prime Power Switchgear Systems

Prime Power Switchgear Systems provide power and control for applications where local utility is unreliable, unavailable, or uneconomical to install. Prime power sites require unique control solutions because of their critical nature. These systems can incorporate automatic synchronizing, soft transfer, fuel economizing, or run time hour balancing. The systems can also be provided with modem communication for remote monitoring, control, and datalogging, as well as alarming.

Applications include:

  • Marine - on board power generation
  • Village or island applications - system acts as the utility
  • Mining, offshore platforms, gas plants, and remote refineries - providing on-site power for production.

In locations such as remote mining or gas plant operations, utility power is nonexistent. A multiple-unit, auto-synchronizing system will provide continuous reliable power for site operations and production systems. The system can control multiple units for auto sequencing, load sharing, auto-synchronizing, and protection. The controls can automatically start and stop generators as required, based on plant demand, thereby improving system downtime and facilitating maintenance.

Thomson Technology’s Marine Switchgear is designed to meet the additional requirements of the applicable marine standards such as Lloyds, DNV, or ABS. These standards deal with issues like extended temperature ranges, vibration, serviceability, and fireproofing.

Auto Standby Switchgear Systems Keep the Power on During Outages

- Monday, April 12, 2021
South Shore Generator - Automatic Switchgear System

Automatic Standby Switchgear Systems provide control of single or multiple generator sets to provide automatic standby power during a utility power failure. Auto standby switchgear can be designed with an integral transfer system between the utility supply and emergency bus. It can also work with an external distributed transfer switch scheme.

Many standard transfer control schemes are available. Manual synchronizing is provided in the event of failure of the automatic controls. Load demand starting can be incorporated to maintain optimal efficiency and reliability of your gen-sets during a power failure. Load management schemes can be provided to prevent your system from being overloaded, resulting in costly and dangerous downtime.

Most Powerful Generator Sets by KOHLER

- Monday, March 01, 2021
South Shore Generators - Kohler KD series

The top end of the much-anticipated KD Series diesel-powered generator sets represent KOHLER's most powerful generators on the market today at 3500kW and 4000kW (60Hz) / 4000kVA and 4500kVA (50Hz), respectively, and all powered by the KOHLER KD103V20 diesel engine.

In late 2016, KOHLER unveiled an entirely new range of large diesel industrial generators up to 2500kW (60Hz) / 2800kVA (50Hz). The range was subsequently extended to 3250kW (60Hz) / 3500kVA (50Hz) in 2018.

Now, based on a strong worldwide market response and an increasing demand on power in mission critical applications such as data centers, hospitals and water treatment facilities, KOHLER has expanded the top end of the KD Series with the rollout of these new 3500kW and 4000kW models.

Building on the proven excellence of the KD Series product line, the new generators are designed to deliver extreme durability and ultimate reliability in a variety of emergency and prime applications. This release expands the limits of standby generators and sets KOHLER apart with its breadth of product in this range.

KOHLER has reached the culmination of the KD generator series that was designed from the ground-up including the KOHLER diesel engine platform. With a 4-megawatt generator, KOHLER can now offer customers the largest and most powerdense standby generator in the marketplace.

This KD Series 3500kW and 4000kW gensets incorporate a powerful and sophisticated K175 diesel engine – the KD 103 liter, 20-cylinder model. From a design perspective, KOHLER kept many of the engine components the same as the KD Series predecessors including the control system, fuel system, and cooling system, to name a few.

The modular design of the KD103V20-powered generator sets is a bit larger than its V16 and V12 counterparts and delivers unprecedented power density and unrivaled performance.

Matched turbochargers are engineered for maximum power and response. High ambient cooling systems ensure performance is maintained in the most extreme environments. The engine features a high-pressure common rail, precise fuel injection system that delivers pressures up to 32,000 psi. Fuel mapping options for optimized fuel consumption for use in non-emissions regulated regions, emissions optimized for use in U.S. and Canada, or low-NOx optimized for use in mission critical segments like data centers enable the generators to be deployed globally without worry. Users of the KD Series generators will find cost savings because the offering delivers top-of-the line fuel consumption regardless of the calibration. To reduce noise and vibration, the engines have a closed-loop regeneration crankcase ventilation system and rigid block, crankcase and sub-frame.

The generators are equipped with either the APM802 or APM603 controller that ties the entire system together for a seamless customer experience. The newer APM603 control unit provides enhanced performance and monitoring features such as (+/-.25%) voltage regulation, expanded inputs and outputs, a large seven-inch color touchscreen, and the ability to parallel as many as eight generator sets.

When paired with KOHLER’s global sales and support network the KD Series line-up provides leading performance for mission critical and industrial applications. Data centers, healthcare facilities, water utilities, and critical facilities such as airports; can rest assured with a KD Series generator set backed by KOHLER’s Worldwide support network.

KOHLER Gaseous-Powered Industrial Generators recognized as a "Product of the Year"

- Thursday, February 25, 2021
South Shore Generator - KOHLER KG Series Gas Generators

The KOHLER KG Series gaseous-powered generators have been recognized as a 2020 Product of the Year by readers of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. The publication’s 16th annual Product of the Year competition identifies the best new products launched between Jan. 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020 in 11 key industrial categories and then invites its professional readership to vote for their favorites.

This year, the KOHLER KG Series gas generators at 80kW, 100kW and 125kW Series was recognized with a Silver Product of the Year Award in the Power Systems & Equipment category. The recognition is Kohler’s second award in three years from Consulting-Specifying Engineer after winning gold for the KD Series generator line in 2018.

KOHLER is pleased to be recognized by specifying engineers with their endorsement of their KG gas generators and viewed as leaders in power generation technology. The gas generators are suited for a wide array of applications and, because they’re fully-integrated units, KOHLER provides one-source responsibility for the generating system and accessories, including fully trained technicians and easy access to our genuine aftermarket parts.

The gaseous-powered industrial generators feature the company’s 6.2-liter V8 turbocharged engines that are optimized for generator applications to provide a durable, high-performance engine. The generators provide flexibility to select the appropriate gas fuel source (natural gas, propane, and dual fuel) with Kohler’s patented dual fuel technology. Each of the KG generators feature KOHLER Fast Response excitation systems that deliver excellent voltage response and short-circuit capability using permanent magnet-excited alternators.

Kohler is the only generator manufacturer to offer hurricane-rated enclosures as standard directly from the factory. These enclosures are durable aluminum enclosures that meet the most stringent and widely recognized testing standards (TAS) within the Florida Building Code from wind load and projectile impact.

The KOHLER KG80, KG100 and KG125 KG generators are suited for applications like commercial, municipal buildings, educations, housing, health care and nursing homes.
