1.0 OVERVIEW OF THE OPAL GENERATOR ANNUNCIATOR


The Si-TEC Xtend series Opal Generator Annunciator comprises various features including remote display of Si-TEC Xtend CGC control LCD, metering display of critical governor and generator parameters, alarms, trip causes and running hours, as well as turbine monitoring and over-speed protection, all integrated within a single module. The Opal Generator Annunciator is used in conjunction with the Si-TEC Xtend CGC control module for generator applications involving steam turbines. These may be used in a wide range of applications including power stations, sugar mills, mining, government and commercial buildings, hospitals, defence and telecommunications facilities, marine & shipping, as well as the oil & gas industry. In addition to the Opal Generator Annunciator, the Opal Turbine Annunciator is used in conjunction with the Si-TEC Xtend ADG control module for display and monitoring of mechanical drive steam turbine applications, including mills, shredders, pumps, compressors, fans, etc. NOTE: This Opal Generator Annunciator module may only be used with Si-TEC Xtend CGC version BA_1.XX and BX_1.XX onwards. Earlier Si-TEC Xtend control versions would require firmware upgrade to allow for interface with the Opal module. Consult Dawson Technology for further details.

2. FEATURES OF THE OPAL GENERATOR ANNUNCIATOR


Remote display of the Si-TEC Xtend control (via CAN BUS interface), and designed for mounting on system control panel. A 4-line LCD screen allows operators to view actual and reference values of the Si-TEC Xtend control. Also includes specific menu keys on the Generator keypad. Metering of essential generator parameters that include generator Voltage, Frequency, Real Power (kWatts) and Power Factor (lag and lead) This reduces the need for using conventional meters and transducers. Overspeed Protection ability. This feature is designed and built as hardware function independent of the main processor. A dedicated speed sensor (MPU) input is available and is required for this function. Turbine monitoring capability including measuring Inlet Pressure, Exhaust Pressure, Lube Oil Pressure, Control Supply Voltage, and a user select input (eg. Control Oil Pressure). Alarm functions are available via logic inputs (status) and relay outputs (eg. Pre-Warn, Audible and Visual). Typically, these inputs are configured and set up to receive 4-20mA signal from an external transmitter. As these are loop signals that are not fully-isolated from each other, it is recommended that a signal isolator be used for each input. The monitoring also includes specific menu keys on the Turbine keypad. Turbine protection capability including, Overspeed, Inlet Pressure, Exhaust Pressure, Lube Oil Pressure, etc. The Shutdown functions are available through logic inputs (status) and relay outputs (Overspeed and Shutdown). Multiple Opal units may be connected to the Si-TEC Xtend control module via the CAN BUS interface. These include 1 x primary Opal module (for remote display, Turbine monitoring and Turbine protection) and up to 2 x secondary Opal modules (for remote display only).

3. INPUT / OUTPUT DESCRIPTION


3.1 Introduction
The Opal Generator Annunciator is a remote display module of a Si-TEC Xtend CGC turbinegenerator control, and also includes generator metering, overspeed protection, as well as turbine monitoring and protection. The Opal Annunciator may also be used for turbine-alternator or for nongenerator applications. Chapter 4 through 5 provide details of the various logic inputs, relay outputs, analog inputs and analog outputs. This provides information for the relevant application documentation and drawings, together with details of the input and output hardware specifications of the Opal Generator Annunciator module. Accordingly, it is necessary to check all preset values prior to the commissioning of the turbine control system.

3.2 Terminology
The following is a list of common terms used in this manual: Analog Input: 4-20mA input signals. Logic Input: a switched input voltage (nominally 24Vdc). Relay Output: voltage free contacts for providing output control, status or alarm. High Input: when 24Vdc is applied to a logic input. Low Input: when the logic input has no input voltage. Preset Value: pre-shipped set point value of an internal control function that is adjustable for final application settings.

4.0 Turbine Board Hardware Description

4.1 Logic Inputs


There are 6 logic inputs on the Opal turbine board. The logic inputs are isolated and require a 24VDC power source and then they must be switched to the source 0VDC. These logic inputs can be programmed to be active on or active off in the Opal configuration. 4.1.1 Logic 6 / Remote reset switch Logic input 6 can be used as the remote alarm reset. See section 4.1 for details. When this input is set to be remote reset, then the normal timed monitoring on this input is ignored.

4.2 Relay Outputs


4.2.1 Shutdown Relay The shutdown relay is activated due to any shutdown alarms on the Opal. The shutdown relay is fail-safe, therefore it is on even when there are no alarms. 4.2.2 Prewarn Relay The prewarn relay is not fail-safe. The prewarn relay is active only when there is prewarn alarms. 4.2.3 Audio Alarm Relay The audio alarm relay is active when there are any alarms that the Opal is aware of. The audio alarm relay will be active at the same time the piezo sounder is sounding an alarm. When the Mute Siren button is pressed the audio alarm turns off 4.2.4 Visual Alarm Relay The visual alarm relay is active when there are any alarms that the Opal knows about. Pressing the Mute Siren button has no effect on the visual alarm relay

2.0 Overspeed Protection


The Opal comes with an in-built & dedicated turbine overspeed protection functions: This function requires an MPU for speed monitoring & triggering of Overspeed Relay upon detection. The function of the hardware protection is not controlled by the software, although it is monitored by the software. The overspeed protection is custome set to be a speed level at typically 10% above the normal running speed of the turbine. The overspeed limit is set by adjusting the Pot P2 on the back of the Opal. Pot P3 is not applicable. When the turbine speed has exceded the overspeed set point, the overspeed relay latches on. The overspeed relay is intended to go in line with the turbine protection equipment (eg. SD Solenoid). The overspeed relay can be reset by pressing the RESET ALARMS button on the Turbine side of the Opal. Another way to reset the overspeed relay is by pulling the Overspeed Reset pin low (pin 16 on the rear of the Opal). Note that Overspeed Relay cannot be rest while condition is still present.

3.2 Analog input setup menus

INLET SP ALARM Low Pre High 0 120 200 kPa Delay: Trig 59 Alm 5
These menus show how each of the analog inputs have been set up. The parameters can be altered only when the Opal is factory configuration mode (See Appendix 3). To change the parameters , press Select, navigate using the up & down arrow keys, use + and - to alter a value. Finally press store to save the new value.

Each analog input is monitored for a too low and a too high condition. If either of these occur then an alarm will occur and the shutdown relay will activate.

The pre-warning alarms work as follows: INLET PRESSURE prewarn works on a falling value EXHAUST PRESSURE prewarn works on a rising value LUBE OIL PRESSURE prewarn works on a falling value USER ANALOG 3 prewarn works on a rising value CONTROL VOLTAGE prewarn works on a falling value If a prewarn alarm occurs, then a prewarn relay will activate.

The monitoring of each of these inputs is controlled by the delay times. If the idle delay is set to 0 seconds, then the input will be monitored at all times whether the turbine is running or not. This is shown by the message Always. If the idle delay is set to 61 seconds then the input is not monitored at all. This is shown by the message Never Monitor. Then delay on refers to the time that the condition must be present for the alarm to occur. This is only monitored after the idle time has expired. The delay on is limited from 1 to 60 seconds.

The units for each of the analog inputs can also be set to be one of the following options: (none), kPa, psi, bar, oC, oF, sec, rpm, ppr, V, %.

Logic input 6 can be configured as a remote reset input. To activate the settable text for Logic 6 must be set to RESET. When this is the case the normal monitoring on this pin is ignored. To force an external reset the logic input has to be pulled low in relation to the isolated +24V on the logic input pins. This must remain low for greater that 0.2 seconds. The external reset only resets the alarms from the turbine board, it does not reset the overspeed alarm.
