Updated AGC 200 – introducing Hot Standby, droop mode and more
DEIF has released a new version of its acclaimed Advanced Genset Controller, AGC 200, to meet and surpass OEM needs for synchronisation. A cost-effective, compact, scalable and all-in-one product, the AGC 200 comes in several variants.
“The AGC 200 and DEIF’s more complex high-runner solution AGC-4 share the same firmware platform,” explains Product Manager Florent Simon. “In that sense, the AGC 200 has benefitted from the acclaimed AGC-4’s experience but AGC 200 uses a different HW platform, newer technologies and is a more cost-effective product. It offers customers the possibility to choose between the two products: both have the same functions in terms of SW."
The advanced controller series integrates all necessary functions for superior genset protection and control and stands out for its reliability and operator-friendliness and features patent-pending DEIF Emulation to speed up design, testing and commissioning, saving you man hours and costs.
Applying asymmetric load sharing to ensure optimal load on the genset, the AGC 200 also cuts operating costs and reduces harmful emissions.
With temperature-dependent cooling, the ACG 200 arrests cooling at pre-programmed cool-down temperatures and features automatic priority selection, setting the optimum combination of gensets for optimised fuel consumption.
Other new features include:
- Hot Standby redundancy for high end critical power application
- Supports communication to digital AVR D510c from Leroy Somer (requires option T2)
- Droop mode implemented: implement a droop regulation in the AGC200, and allows parallel operation without any form of communication.
AGC 200 Features
- Multiple operating modes with just one piece of software
- Synchronisation of up to 56 breakers in one plant
- Multi-master power management
- Load-dependent start and stop
- Load management
- Priority selection (manual, relative running hours, absolute running hours, fuel optimisation)
