ETSA Utilities

Power & Drive Solutions has completed multiple design, build and commission projects for ETSA Utilities to construct small to medium, trailer mounted emergency response generators. Some of these power generation solutions were also skid mounted.

The challenge

The recurring challenge for power generation clients is the crucial necessity for backup emergency power to work immediately when it is required to, which is the reason ETSA chose Power & Drive Solutions to fulfill this important requirement. The greatest challenge has been in designing a control system for live cut in and cut out for a mains supply.

The result

Using suitable controllers and dedicated software, Power & Drive Solutions has designed a unique system to meet this challenge whilst maintaining the synchronisation and load sharing to the utility. The solution is to use a manual fuse synchronisation which enables the service provider to parallel onto and off from the mains grid by opening and closing one phase at a time. This will often see the team create a power control solution in a standalone controller box such as the one displayed above.
