Generac Power Systems has revamped its large kW product line with three new power generators, and a new integrated paralleling control. Additionally, two existing models received system upgrades.
Generac added 750-, 900- and 1,500-kW diesel generators to its industrial product line, creating a range that now extends from 750 kW to 2 MW. They can be used as either a stand-alone SD series generator or as an MD series generator in Generac’s paralleling Modular Power System (MPS) with outputs up to 100 MW. All of the generator systems are available in an open set configuration, or with weather protected, Level 1 or Level 2 sound attenuated enclosures. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries engines offer altitude derates, and other features include a full range of multiple unit-mounted circuit breakers up to 3000A and UL142-listed fuel tanks for 12- and 24-hour run times.
Generac also said its new Power-Manager System Control (PM-SCi) offers a cost-efficient and space-saving MPS solution for paralleling multiple large generators. Advanced integrated (onboard) paralleling and load management capabilities allow for the management of up to 31 paralleled generators, and can control multiple, separate transfer switches. There are six default levels for priority loads and three default levels for load shedding during system failure. Built-in Modbus technology allows for remote monitoring.
