Bill of Materials, Solar Taurus 60 Mobile Power Unit:
The Solar Taurus 60 Mobile Power Unit is a "Truly Portable" 5200 KW generation system that is easy to move, easy to setup, easy to operate, easy to tear down, and easy on the pocketbook by avoiding high installation costs. The design features are outlined below.
1. Trailer transportable by permit.
2. No concrete slabs for placement of mobile generation system.
3. No large cranes or large fork lifts required to set up.
4. Setup in five days or less.
5. Quiet operation. 76dba @ 50 ft.
6. Minimum of auxiliary connections required. (i.e. gas powered units
require a 12.47KV or 13.8KV connection & 250 pound gas connection).

· 300% short circuit capability for 10 seconds
· Overload capacity per NEMA:
· 150% rated current for 1 minute
· 110% for 2 hours
Voltage Regulator Characteristics
· Solid state
· Single-phase sensing
· ±10% voltage adjustment range

· Harmonic Content [maximum] 3%
· Telephone Interference Factor 50
· Balanced Residual 75
Voltage Drift. The change in voltage will not exceed 1.0% over a 30 minute
period when the generator is operating at rated voltage and 0.8 to 1.0 power factor and with a constant load between no load and full rated load.
Generator Construction. An open drip proof generator per NEMA standards is
Generator Voltage. The generator output is 13,800 or 12,470 Volts, 3 phase, 60 Hz. Insulation conforms to NEMA class F with class F (1050C) temperature rise.
- NEC, non-hazardous Electrical Classification
- Direct AC Drive Start System
- Lube Oil System:
Tank, Filters, Pre/Post Lube Pump, Back-up Pump, Vent Separator
- Vibration and Temperature Monitoring System
- PLC based Control System with 120 VDC Battery Supply (installed on the Auxiliary Equipment Module)
- Generator Control and Monitoring System with the following features and functions:
Integrated monitoring and control of the generator is provided using a specially designed module in the PLC to receive input data from potential and current transformers. The system calculates real and reactive power, power factor and the variables required for synchronization.
Automatic Synchronizing. An automatic synchronizer is provided with the
control system to automatically synchronize the unit to the bus through pushbutton control on the digital control panel [DCP] or by receipt of an appropriate remote signal. A synch check relay is provided as an additional permissive and for backup protection.
Motorized Voltage Adjust. Raise/lower voltage push button control is provided
on the digital control panel to control a motorized potentiometer for voltage
control. An additional raise/lower switch, supplied by others, may be used to
control voltage from a remote location.
KW Controller. A kW controller is provided to control the real load (kW) on the
generator set while operating in parallel with a utility or other large source. The kW controller monitors the load carried by the generator set and adjusts the turbine's fuel flow to maintain a constant load as plant load changes. Protection against excessive kW load while in parallel with a large source is provided by the control system "T5" temperature limiter. The kW control system provides additional operational flexibility by allowing unit kW load level to be set at any desired level within the capacity of the unit. The kilowatt load level select switch and level adjustment is located on the digital control panel.

KVAR/Power Factor Controller. A kVAR/power factor controller is provided
to maintain a constant reactive load (kVAR) output or constant power factor (pf) on the generator set while the unit is operating in parallel with a utility or other large source. The controller applies a signal directly to the voltage regulator adjust circuit to maintain a constant reactive load or power factor with changes in the infinite bus voltage level. The system incorporates a set point adjust rheostat to set the desired kVAR or pf, a selector switch to choose kVAR or pf control mode, and a switch to turn the controller on and off.
- Remote Control Capability (via Optional Supervisory Interface)
An RS 232C/422 interface module is provided to give the user's supervisory
computer access, such as SCADA, to the Turbotronic control system data.
Limited control capability is provided to allow the supervisory computer to start and stop the unit, reset alarms, and raise/lower speed and load set points. The communications protocol is Allen Bradley's DF1. The interface module may be located up to 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) from the turbine control system and located up to 50 feet (15 meters) from the supervisory computer for the RS 232C module or 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) for the RS 422 module. The modules are "table top" units and require 120 Vac, 50/60 Hz power.
