723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Electrostatic Discharge Awareness


All electronic equipment is static-sensitive, some components more than others.
To protect these components from static damage, you must take special
precautions to minimize or eliminate electrostatic discharges.
Follow these precautions when working with or near the control.
1.

Before doing maintenance on the electronic control, discharge the static


electricity on your body to ground by touching and holding a grounded
metal object (pipes, cabinets, equipment, etc.).

2.

Avoid the build-up of static electricity on your body by not wearing clothing
made of synthetic materials. Wear cotton or cotton-blend materials as
much as possible because these do not store static electric charges as
much as synthetics.

3.

Keep plastic, vinyl, and Styrofoam materials (such as plastic or Styrofoam


cups, cup holders, cigarette packages, cellophane wrappers, vinyl books
or folders, plastic bottles, and plastic ash trays) away from the control, the
modules, and the work area as much as possible.

4.

Do not remove the printed circuit board (PCB) from the control cabinet
unless absolutely necessary. If you must remove the PCB from the control
cabinet, follow these precautions:

Do not touch any part of the PCB except the edges.

Do not touch the electrical conductors, the connectors, or the


components with conductive devices or with your hands.

When replacing a PCB, keep the new PCB in the plastic antistatic
protective bag it comes in until you are ready to install it. Immediately
after removing the old PCB from the control cabinet, place it in the
antistatic protective bag.
To prevent damage to electronic components caused by improper
handling, read and observe the precautions in Woodward manual
82715, Guide for Handling and Protection of Electronic Controls,
Printed Circuit Boards, and Modules.

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Chapter 1.
General Information
Introduction
This manual describes the 723PLUS Generator Control, part numbers
8280-5000/5010 (High and Low Voltage Control, actuator output 0200 mA)
and 8280-5020/5030 (High and Low Voltage Control, actuator output 420 mA).

Application
The control is intended for use in a variety of generator applications; for
auxiliary generators and diesel electric propulsion in marine systems, and for
island mode operation and for base loading against an infinite bus in power
plant systems. From the revision B software, the LON * load sharing option is
added. This option provides load sharing by mean of LON bus, with a maximum
of 16 units, that can be split in maximum 3 different busses. The LON load
sharing provides diagnostics in case of failure of load sharing.
*LON is a trademark of Echelon Corporation.

The MW Control mode is especially useful for applications where the grid is
weak and large frequency excursions are expected. Under these
circumstances, operating in droop mode is not practical, as large variations in
load would be experienced, due to frequency shifts of the grid. In MW control,
the speed of the engine is maintained by the grid, and the load on the generator
remains constant throughout the frequency excursion.
The control provides closed loop speed control, with a torsional filter and a
notch (band-stop) filter to help to eliminate problems caused by low frequency
oscillations due to engine and generator inertias and flexible couplings.
Three modes of operation are available:

Droop control based on a 420 mA MW Transducer input, or the actuator


position.

Isochronous load sharing with soft loading/unloading, and automatic


generator breaker open command once the engine has unloaded.

MW control with soft loading/unloading, and automatic generator breaker


open command once the engine has unloaded. The reference may be
adjusted by Increase/Decrease contacts or by analog reference - 420 mA
or Modbus *. In addition an internally tunable MW reference value can be
used.
*Modbus is a trademark of Schneider Automation Inc.

Start and maximum fuel limiters are provided, as well as a charge air pressure
limiter based on the 420 mA Charge Air Pressure input. A load limiter, enabled
during MW control, will provide load de-rating during frequency excursions.
Additional protection is offered to open the Grid Breaker or the Generator
Breaker, should the frequency excursion become too large.
The control can be adjusted/biased for synchronizing the generator to a bus by
means of the Increase/Decrease contacts, or by the input provided for a
Woodward Unit Synchronizer (SPM-A or DSLC - Digital Synchronizer and
Load Control).
The control can also be adjusted/biased for synchronizing across a bus tie
breaker, or to synchronies the bus to the grid, using a Woodward System
Synchronizer, common to the controls on the bus.

One serial port (J2) is configured for communications with the Woodward
Servlink Server, using RS-232 or RS-422. Then, using the Woodward Watch
Window, engine parameters can be monitored, and Service/Configure tunable
values adjusted.
One serial port (J3) is available for Modbus communications using RS-232,
RS-422 or RS-485. Engine parameters can be monitored, and certain control
functions sent to the control via the Modbus.
420 mA outputs are available for monitoring various control parameters.

Chapter 3.
723PLUS Installation
Scope
This chapter contains installation instructions for the 723PLUS control. Power
requirements, environmental precautions, and location considerations are
included to help you determine the best location for the control. Additional
information includes unpacking instructions, electrical connections, and
installation checkout procedures.

Unpacking
Before handling the control, read page iii, Electrostatic Discharge Awareness.
Be careful when unpacking the electronic control. Check the control for signs of
damage such as bent panels, scratches, and loose or broken parts. If any
damage is found, immediately notify the shipper.

Power Requirements
The high-voltage version of the 723PLUS Digital Speed Control requires a
voltage source of 90 to 150 Vdc. The low-voltage version requires a voltage
source of 18 to 40 Vdc. Maximum power consumption is 40 W for both high and
low voltage models.
To prevent damage to the control do not exceed the input voltage
range.

If a battery is used for operating power, an alternator or other


battery-charging device is necessary to maintain a stable supply
voltage.

To prevent damage to the control, make sure that the alternator or


other battery-charging device is turned off or disconnected before
disconnecting the battery from the control.

Location Considerations
Consider these requirements when selecting the mounting location:

Adequate ventilation for cooling

Space for servicing and repair

Protection from direct exposure to water or to a condensation-prone


environment

Proximity to high-voltage or high-current devices, or devices which produce


electromagnetic interference

Avoidance of vibration

Selection of a location that will provide an operating temperature range of


40 to +70 C (40 to +158 F).
The control must NOT be mounted on the engine.
Woodward

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

Electrical Connections
Shielded Wiring
All shielded cable must be twisted conductor pairs. Do not attempt to tin the
braided shield. All signal lines should be shielded to prevent picking up stray
signals from adjacent equipment. Connect the shields to the nearest chassis
ground. Wire exposed beyond the shield should be as short as possible, not
exceeding 50 mm (2 inches). The other end of the shields must be left open and
insulated from any other conductor. DO NOT run shielded signal wires along
with other wires carrying large currents. See Woodward application note 50532,
EMI Control in Electronic Governing Systems, for more information.
Where shielded cable is required, cut the cable to the desired length and
prepare the cable as instructed below.
1. Strip outer insulation from BOTH ENDS, exposing the braided or spiral
wrapped shield. DO NOT CUT THE SHIELD.
2. Using a sharp, pointed tool, carefully spread the strands of the shield.
3. Pull inner conductor(s) out of the shield. If the shield is the braided type,
twist it to prevent fraying.
4. Remove 6 mm (1/4 inch) of insulation from the inner conductors.
Installations with severe electromagnetic interference (EMI) may require
additional shielding precautions. Contact Woodward Governor Company for
more information.

Power Supply (Terminals 1/2)


Power supply output must be low impedance (for example, directly from
batteries). DO NOT power the control from high-voltage sources with resistors
and zener diodes in series with the control power input. The 723PLUS control
contains a switching power supply which requires a current surge (around 1
Amp) to start properly.
To prevent damage to the control, do not power a low voltage control
from high-voltage sources, and do not power any control from highinput voltage sources with resistors and zener diodes in series with
the power unit.
Run the power leads directly from the power source to the control. DO NOT
POWER OTHER DEVICES WITH LEADS COMMON TO THE CONTROL.
Avoid long wire lengths. Connect the positive (line) to terminal 1 and negative
(common) to terminal 2. A protection device such as a fuse or MCB (rated 4
Amps for the Low-Voltage control and 2 Amps for the High-Voltage control)
should be connected to prevent damage to the control. If the power source is a
battery, be sure the system includes an alternator or other battery-charging
device.
If possible, do NOT turn off control power as part of a normal shutdown
procedure. Leave the control powered except for service of the system and
extended periods of disuse.
Do not apply power to the control at this time. Applying power may
damage the control.

Woodward

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

To prevent damage to the engine, apply power to the 723PLUS


control at least 25 seconds prior to starting the engine. The control
must have time to complete its power-up diagnostics and become
operational. Do not start the engine unless both the green POWER
OK and CPU OK indicators on the 723PLUS control cover come on,
because test failure turns off the output of the control.
Digital Relay Outputs
Major (Shutdown) Alarm (Terminals 3 and 4)
Minor Alarm/Open Grid Breaker Command (Terminals 5 and 6)
Generator Breaker Open Command (Terminals 7 and 8).
During the set-up of the controls, the user will determine whether the relay
outputs are normally open or normally closed contacts.
Contact ratings for minimum 100,000 operations:
Resistive2.0 A at 28 Vdc, 0.1 A at 115 Vac 50 to 400 Hz
Inductive0.75 A at 28 Vdc 0.2 henry.

Load Sharing Lines Input (Terminals 9/10)


Connect the load sharing lines directly to those of another 723PLUS of the
same designation, or to the appropriate terminals of another Woodward unit, for
isochronous load sharing. Use a shielded twisted-pair cable. The shield should
be connected continuously between controls, and grounded at one end only.

Speed Signal Inputs (Terminals 11/12 and 13/14)


Connect a magnetic pickup (MPU) to terminals 11 and 12 (speed sensor #1). If
required, connect a second MPU to terminals 13 and 14 (speed sensor #2). Use
shielded wire for all speed sensor connections. Connect the shield to the
chassis. Make sure the shield has continuity the entire distance to the speed
sensor, and make sure the shield is insulated from all other conducting
surfaces.
The number of gear teeth is used by the control to convert pulses
from the speed sensing device rpm. To prevent possible serious
injury from an overspeeding engine, make sure the control is
properly programmed to convert the gear-tooth count into engine
rpm. Improper conversion could cause engine overspeed.

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

Use shielded twisted-pair wires to connect to terminals 15(+) and 16(), 17(+)
and 18(), and 19(+) and 20(). For an electrically isolated input device such as
a 4 to 20 mA input analog meter, the shield should be grounded at the control
end of the cable. For input to other devices, use the recommendation of the
device manufacturer. The analog outputs will drive 420 mA at 600 ohms
maximum.
To prevent possible damage to the control or poor control
performance resulting from ground loop problems, we recommend
using current loop isolators if the 723PLUS controls analog inputs
and outputs are used with non-isolated devices (common ground
system). A number of manufacturers offer 20 mA loop isolators.
Consult Woodward Governor Company for further information.

Actuator Output (Terminals 21/22)


The actuator wires connect to terminals 21(+) and 22(). Use shielded wires with
the shield connected to chassis at the control.

Discrete Inputs (Terminals 2936)


Discrete inputs are the switch input commands to the 723PLUS control. The
discrete inputs should be powered from the 723PLUSs own Discrete Input
Power. In this case, terminals 37 and 38 should be jumpered. This connects the
controls common to the discrete input common. Terminal 39 then supplies 24
Vdc to the discrete inputs. Since this aux voltage is not isolated from other
control circuits, use only isolated contacts (dry or signal voltage rated) for the
discrete circuits. DO NOT POWER ANY OTHER DEVICES WITH THE
DISCRETE INPUT AUX VOLTAGE SOURCE.
If the discrete input voltage (24 Vdc) is supplied from an external source
(recommended), connect the voltage source negative () to terminal 37. Then
run the voltage source positive (+) to the appropriate switch or relay contact and
then to the corresponding discrete input. There will be no connection to terminal
38 in this case.

50/51/52).
Use shielded twisted-pair cable to connect to terminals 42(+) and 43(), 45(+)
and 46(), 48(+) and 49() and 51(+) and 52(). Ensure that jumpers are
installed between terminals 41 and 42, 44 and 45 and 50 and 51. For 420 mA
inputs (jumper in), the internal burden resistance is 250 ohms.

Internal Jumpers
The 723PLUS control has ten, two-position internal jumpers (JPR1 through
JPR20) located on the top of the printed circuit board. If it is necessary to
change any jumper to match the control requirements, and suit the nature of the
software, read page iii, Electrostatic Discharge Awareness.
Ensure that the power to the control is switched off, before removing the cover.
Using a small pair of tweezers, carefully remove the appropriate jumper and

Installation Checkout Procedure


With the installation complete, carry out the following checkout procedure
before beginning set point entry or initial start-up adjustments.

Visual Inspection
A.

Check the linkage between the actuator and fuel metering device for
looseness or binding. Refer to the appropriate actuator manual, and
Manual 25070, Electronic Governor Installation Guide, for additional
information on linkage.
To prevent possible serious injury from an overspeeding engine, the
actuator lever or stroke should be near but not at the minimum
position when the fuel valve or fuel rack is at the minimum fuel
delivery position.

B.

Check for correct wiring in accordance with the plant wiring diagram.

C.

Check for broken terminals and loose terminal screws.

D.

Check the speed sensor(s) for visible damage. If the sensor is a magnetic
pickup, check the clearance between the gear and the sensor, and adjust
if necessary. Clearance should be between 0.25 and 1.25 mm (0.010 and
0.050 inch) at the closest point. Make sure the gear runout does not
exceed the pickup gap. Refer to manual 82510 Magnetic Pickups And
Proximity Switches For Electric Governors, for information.

Check for Grounds


Check for grounds by measuring the resistance from all control terminals to
chassis. All terminals except terminals 2 and 38 should measure infinite
resistance (the resistance of terminals 2 and 38 depends on whether a floating
or grounded power source is used). If a resistance less than infinite is obtained,
remove the connections from each terminal one at a time until the resistance is
infinite. Check the line that was removed last to locate the fault.

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Chapter 4.
System Description
Engine Speed
Speed Sensing
The control has two speed sensing inputs, and may be configured for torsional
filtering, for smoother operation with soft couplings, or high signal select, giving
speed sensing redundancy should one signal fail. If the torsional filter has been
selected, the speed sensors should be positioned on either side of the coupling;
sensor #1 on the engine side, and sensor #2 on the generator side. If the high
signal select is utilized, then both speed sensing devices should be located on
the same speed sensing disc.
Each speed sensor input has a failed speed detection device, with an override
function which is active during engine start-up. The Failed Spd Sensor #1 and
Failed Spd Sensor #2 LEDs located on the 723PLUS control, give indication
when either input has failed. If a speed sensor fails, it will be switched out until
the fault is rectified, and then reset during the next engine start .
When the torsional filter is selected, failure of either speed sensor will result in
the activation of the Minor Alarm, and control will continue with one speed
signal. If the Generator CB Aux contact input is closed, the Propgain Multiplier
will be switched in to decrease the Prop Gain value. If high signal select is
chosen, failure of a speed sensor will also give continued control with one
speed signal, and the Minor Alarm will be activated.
The option is available to disable the Minor Alarm if one speed sensor fails, for
situations where only one speed sensor is utilized. The Failed Spd Sensor LED
on the front panel of the 723PLUS will still illuminate if no speed signal is
sensed, but the Minor Alarm will not activate.
Failure of both speed sensors will initiate a shutdown, whereby the control will
drive the actuator output to zero if forward acting, or maximum if reverse acting,
and the Major Alarm will be activated.
If the engine has been shut down by the 723PLUS control due to both
speed sensors failing, do NOT attempt to start the engine until the
faults have been located and rectified. Failure of the pickups can
only be detected whilst the engine is running, i.e. the signal must
already exist for the failure detection to operate. If the 723PLUS
cannot detect engine speed during start-up, the actuator output will
go to maximum, possibly driving the engine into an overspeed
condition. The engine should be equipped with an additional
overspeed shutdown device that operates totally independently of
this control, to protect against runaway or damage to the engine,
with possible personal injury or loss of life.
Electronic overspeed detection and shutdown is integral to the control. The
control will drive the actuator output to zero fuel, if the Overspeed Trip is
exceeded.
The engine should be equipped with an additional overspeed
shutdown device, that operates totally independently of this control,
to protect against runaway or damage to the engine, with possible
personal injury or loss of life, should this control fail.

The rated-to-idle ramp may be interrupted similarly by either closing the Rated/Idle
contact (and so returning the reference back to Rated Speed, at the Accel/Decel
Rate), or by momentarily closing the Increase contact (so freezing the ramp).
The Idle/Rated contact input is only functional, whilst the Generator CB Aux
contact input is open.

Synchronizing to a Bus
When the engine reaches Rated Speed, and has remained within the Ready to
Synch Limits for the Sync OK Delay Time, the Ready to Synchronies status
communicated via the Modbus will become TRUE.
The Unit Synchronizer Input will bias the speed reference, based on the value
of the bipolar voltage input. Once the Generator CB Aux contact is closed, the
bias is either:

Switched out until the Generator CB Aux input is opened, if isochronous


mode is enabled.

Last value locked in until the Generator CB Aux input is opened, if droop
mode is enabled.
Alternatively, the unit can be synchronized to the bus using the
Increase/Decrease contacts, which will cause the speed reference to change at
the Inc/Dec Rate #1. The Maximum Speed determines the limit to which the
reference may be increased, and the Minimum Speed is the limit to which the
reference may be decreased.
Opening the Generator CB Aux contact input will set the speed reference
instantly to Rated Speed.

Synchronizing across a Bus Tie/ to the Grid


Once the Generator CB Aux contact input is closed, whether the unit is either in
droop mode or is isochronous load sharing, the generators on a bus may be
synchronized to another bus, or to the grid. This can be done using a Woodward
synchronizer (DSLC or SPM-A), via the System Synchronizer input, and
switching the Unit Synchronizer out. After the generator breaker has closed, there
is a delay period (Sys Synch Delay) before the system synchronizer is
recognized. The input will then bias the speed reference of the control.
Alternatively, if the control is in droop mode, the Increase/Decrease contact
inputs may be used.
Opening the Parallel with Grid contact input (if used), will set the speed
reference instantly to Rated Speed.

Droop Control
To operate in Droop mode, the Isochronous/Droop contact input must be open,
and the Generator CB Aux contact closed.
The speed droop value is calculated based on the Droop percentage, and the
load on the engine. The engine load will be derived from the MW Transducer
input. Should this signal fail, the load will be determined based on the position
of the actuator output. Failure of the load signal input will activate the Minor
Alarm, which will be reset once the signal is healthy. The speed droop will
always be zero, whilst the CB Aux is open.

Woodward

21

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

A Droop Pulse function is provided to help prevent an engine being driven into
reverse power, when connected to a bus in droop mode. When the Generator CB
Aux contact is closed, the speed reference is immediately increased by the Ref
Bias Pulse. This will cause the generator to immediately take on load from the
other sets. This is a permanent bias, whilst the control remains in droop mode.
This function can be disabled by tuning the Ref Bias Pulse parameter to zero.
Closure of the Increase contact will cause the speed reference to increase at
the Inc/Dec Rate #2, therefore causing the engine to take on load (if available).
Closure of the Decrease contact will cause the speed reference to decrease at
the Inc/Dec Rate #2, therefore causing the engine to shed load (if possible).

Isochronous Load Sharing


A generator set operating in the isochronous mode will operate at the same set
frequency regardless of the load it is supplying, up to the full load capability of
the generator set. This mode can be used on one generator set running by itself
in an isolated system. The Isochronous mode can also be used on a generator
set connected in parallel with other generator sets. If two generator sets
operating in the isochronous mode without load sharing controls are tied
together to the same load, one of the units will try to carry the entire load and
the other will shed all of its load. In order to share load with other units, some
additional means must be used to keep each generator set from either trying to
take all the load or from motoring.
Isochronous load sharing is enabled by closing the Isochronous/Droop contact,
provided that the Generator CB Aux contact is also closed, and the load input
signal is healthy.
The first machine on-line will close its relay K4 contact on the load sharing lines
instantly, connecting to the system load sharing lines, in preparation for
isochronous load sharing with other units. Subsequent units selected to
isochronous will increase/decrease load softly, according to the Auto
Load/Unload Rates, until the load on the unit is within the defined LS Error %, of
the other unit(s) which are already isochronously load sharing. At this time, the
relay K4 will be closed to connect the load sharing lines to those of the other
unit(s). The error between the system load and each individual units load will
then be monitored, and the Rated Speed reference biased accordingly, to
increase/decrease load, to achieve equal load sharing at Rated Speed.
The control provides a function for auto soft unloading of the engine. The
Unload contact should be closed (momentarily) when the control is in
isochronous load sharing. The engine load will then be ramped down at the
Auto Unload Rate, until the Unload Trip Level is reached, at which time, the
control will issue a Generator Breaker Open Command. This output will remain
active, until the Generator CB Aux contact is opened.
The Generator Breaker Open Command is a normally open contact,
unless the DO#3 NC? set point has been tuned to make the contact
normally closed.
The unloading ramp may be stopped, if necessary, by momentarily closing the
Increase contact. At this time, the control will be in droop mode, and will either
remain so until the Isochronous/Droop contact is toggled open/closed to switch
back into isochronous load sharing, or if the Re-Load to Isoc set point is tuned
true, the control will automatically ramp back to isochronous load sharing.
The Emergency Load Rate input may be enabled for fast soft loading/
unloading of the engine.
22

Woodward

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

If it is necessary that a machine is required on-line more quickly than usual (i.e.
during an emergency situation), the contact should be closed, and once the
Generator CB Aux contact is closed, the control will load the engine at the
Emergency Load Rate, rather than the Auto Load Rate.
If the Unload function is used whilst the Emergency Load Rate contact is
closed, the engine will be unloaded at the Emergency Unload Rate.
The Emergency Load/Unload Rates may be disabled at any time, by opening
the contact.
If the MW Transducer input signal should fail whilst in isochronous load sharing,
the control will switch back into droop control, with load based on the actuator
output. Once the fault is rectified, and the signal fault reset (either automatically
or by using the Modbus Reset), the control will load/unload back into
isochronous load sharing.
Whilst the control is operating in isochronous load sharing, the droop reference
is continuously tracking, so that if the control is switched into droop mode, the
transfer will be bumpless.
Switching into MW Control mode will also be bumpless.

Load Sharing via LON


The load sharing in this control can be configured to be done via the LON
network connection. Over this network data is exchanged between the controls.
The following main parameters are exchanged:

The units generator kW load in %

The status of the generator circuit breaker

The status of the bus tie breakers

A check bit to verify LON communications


Before starting the load sharing it is important that each controls
LON-network address is configured, also which of the LON 1 to 16
are present!
In the configure menu *LON COM*, the units network address can be tuned in
the range 1-16.
The software is created in such a way, that it expects the following:

The first bus bar, A or 1, is fed through units 15.

The second bus bar, B or 2, is fed through units 610.

The third bus bar C or 3, is fed through units 1116.

The bus Tie-breaker 1 (A-B) is in between unit 5 and 6.

The bus Tie-breaker 2 (B-C) is in between unit 10 and 11.

Woodward

23

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

For proper load sharing the LON-addresses are to be configured accordingly.


If two engines are used with a Tie-breaker, configure LON 1 and LON 6.

Taking an Engine On-line


The first engine on-line, i.e. first generator CB closed, will instantly carry the
present kW load on the bus. Each following engine will be soft-loaded onto the
bus. The rate at which the engine takes load can be set in service menu *MW
LOAD LON* under LOAD RATE (%/sec). This percentage is proportional to
the Rated Load MW set in the configure mode menu *MW CONTROL*.

Taking an Engine Off-line


This is done through the UNLOAD contact. Once closed the UNLOAD ramp
unloads the engine according to the UNLOAD RATE (%/sec) set in service menu
*MW LOAD LON*. Under load level UNLOAD TRIP LEVEL, set in the service
mode menu *ENGINE LOAD*, a contact to open the generator CB is issued.

Bus Interconnection
Closing the bus tie breaker causes all the units to share equal load. When, upon
closing of the tie breaker, a load difference exists between the buses that is larger
than the preset value, the two buses are soft-loaded towards each other.
The load difference is set in service menu *MW LOAD LON* under BUS LOAD
DIFF (%), the load rate is set in BUS CONNECT RATE (%/sec). It should be
noted that these values have to be the same on all engine controls.
The Tie breaker feedback must be given to all units as given below:

Tie Breaker #1 feedback to all units present between 1 and 5;

Tie Breaker #2 feedback to all units present between 11 and 16.


A failure of the Tie breaker feedback of one of the units will result in a Tie
Breaker Fail Alarm, and all units on that particular bus side will switch to droop
mode operation.

Load Sharing
The load sharing is set in service menu *LOAD SHARING (LON)*, with a
negative deadband % and a positive deadband % setting a deadband wherein
there is no biasing out, outside this deadband the negative window % and
positive window % which set the window for the load difference where the bias
in positive window and bias in negative window will give a biasing to the speed
controller. The max negative bias and max positive bias set the maximum bias
in rpm to the speed controller.

LON Network Failure Detection


Each units performs on the LON network failure detection based on a received
message timeout. Upon failure detection the unit issues a minor alarm. In the
service mode, the menu *LON COM Failure* will be active and shows which of
the LON communication has failed.
When the LON network detects a failure and the engine is on-line (Circuit
Breaker is closed) the system goes to droop mode, all of the engine running at
that bus section will then run in droop.
24

Woodward

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

When the LON failure comes from an engine which was off-line (Circuit Breaker
is open) then the other engines on that bus section will keep running in
isochronous load sharing mode.
If now a reset to the LON alarm is given and the LON alarm is still active then
the bus will switch to droop mode.
A reset can be given by forcing the engine in droop mode (Discrete input F) and
then switch back to Isochronous mode. NOTE: You will have to do this for each
engine on that bus section!
The LON alarm logic also gets a reset when the CB contact (Circuit breaker
feedback) is switched.
The engine will switch to droop mode when the kW-sensor fails.

MW Control
To operate in MW Control, the Generator CB Aux, Parallel With Grid (if used)
and MW Control contact inputs must be closed, and the MW load input must not
be disabled.
Switching into MW Control from Isochronous Load Sharing or Droop mode will
be bumpless. Once in MW Control, the MW reference can be adjusted by use of
the Increase/Decrease contact inputs. Closing the Increase contact raises the
MW reference towards the Maximum Load at the Raise Load Rate. Closing the
Decrease contact lowers the MW reference towards the Minimum Load at the
Lower Load Rate.
If the Select Int MW Ref parameter has been selected true in Configure, and the
control switches into MW Control mode when the generator breaker closes, the
MW reference will automatically ramp to the Internal MW Ref at the Int MW Ref
Rate. If the control is in digital MW setting mode (use of increase/decrease
contacts to set MW reference), it will then remain at this level until the
Increase/Decrease contact inputs are used to adjust the load. If the control is in
analog MW setting mode, then the parameter Enbl Int Ref Analog must be
selected true to utilize the internal MW reference function. In this case, once the
internal MW reference is reached, the reference will be ramped to the analog
reference level.
The ramp to Internal MW Ref is not utilized when switching into MW
Control when the breaker is closed.
If both the Increase and Decrease contacts are closed (or Remote Reference
selected via the Modbus), the MW reference will ramp to the level determined
by the 420 mA Remote Reference input, at the Auto Load Rate. Once this
level has been reached, the reference will continue to follow the input, at the
Raise/Lower Load Rates. If the remote reference input should fail (i.e. <2 mA,
>22 mA), the MW reference will lock in the last healthy value. The control will
then respond to the Increase/Decrease contacts, once the remote MW
reference is de-selected.
If both the Increase and Decrease contacts are closed to select the remote
reference, opening only one of the contacts will NOT de-select the remote
reference. Both contacts must be opened to de-select the remote reference.
This is to prevent the reference being driven high or low in the event of a single
wire break.

Woodward

25

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

Closing the Unload contact (momentarily) will cause the control to decrease the
MW reference until the Unload Trip Level is reached, at which time the control will
issue a Generator Breaker Open Command. This output will remain active until
the Generator CB Aux contact is opened, indicating that the breaker has opened.
The unloading sequence can be interrupted by momentarily closing the Increase
contact input. The load will then remain at the level it was interrupted at, if in local
mode, or will ramp back to the remote reference level, if in remote mode.
Failure of the 420 mA MW Transducer input (i.e. <1 mA, >22 mA) will switch
the control into droop mode, with load calculated based on the actuator output.
Once the fault is rectified, and the signal fault reset (either automatically or by
using the Modbus Reset), the control will load/unload back into MW Control.
During normal operation, transferring to droop or isochronous modes will be
bumpless.
When going from MW-Control to Isoch mode, by opening the Parallel With Grid
contact, the load sharing lines relay K4 is closed immediately, to ensure that all
units will switch instantly to isochronous load sharing. In this case, the transfer
may not be completely bumpless, depending on the imported/exported load and
distribution of load between engines, before the grid breaker was opened.
Depending on which method of MW Control is preferred, either Direct MW
Control or MW Deadband Control may be chosen.
Direct MW Control:
The PID compares the measured MW to the MW reference, and adjusts the
actuator output accordingly.
MW Deadband Control (Compensated MW Control):
The control is effectively in Droop mode. A deadband controller compares the
measured MW with the MW reference, and then will increase/decrease the
speed reference ramp, and hence increase/decrease the load on the engine.
Opening the Parallel With Grid contact input, when the control is selected to
Droop mode, resets the speed reference instantly to Rated Speed.

Whilst operating in MW Control mode, the control can be configured for opening
the Grid and/or Generator breakers in the event that the grid frequency has
risen too high, or fallen too low.
The Freq H Trip & Freq L Trip parameters, set the high and low frequency
window, outside of which the control will give the command to open the grid
breaker, after a time delay L/H Trip Delay (if Grid CB Open Cmd? Has been
configured true).
Alternatively, instead of opening the grid breaker, if the Enable MW Override?
Parameter has been configured true, the control will switch into droop mode. If
the Grid CB Open Cmd? has also been configured true, then DO#2 will be
activated to indicate that the control is in the MW Override mode, and therefore
should not be connected to open the grid breaker. The MW Override droop
mode can be reset, and MW control re-selected, by de-selecting, then reselecting MW control mode (using digital contact input), provided that the grid
frequency is back within the defined trip limits.

Woodward

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

If En MW Ovrd Autorst is configured true, then the control will automatically reselect MW control mode, once the grid frequency is back within the trip limits,
and the MW Ovrd Autorst Dly has expired.
The Freq HH Trip & Freq LL Trip parameters, set the high and low frequency
window, outside of which the control will give the command to open the
generator breaker, after a time delay LL/HH Trip Delay.

Operating Modes
Whether the control is in Droop, Isochronous or MW Control mode, is
dependent on the status of certain contact inputs, and whether or not certain
analog inputs are healthy. The table below indicates which mode of operation
the control will select, based on the status of the relevant digital and analog
inputs.

Limiters and Load Rejection


The LED on the front of the 723PLUS, labeled Alarm #2, will illuminate if any of
the Start, Maximum or Charge Air Pressure fuel limiters are controlling the fuel
output, or if an engine shutdown has clamped the output to zero. This alarm
does not control any relay output.

Engine Shutdown Limiter


If the control shuts down the engine, due to a major alarm condition, or because
the stop command has been issued, the output to the actuator will be clamped
at zero. This is ensured by forcing a negative value, which, when converted to a
mA output, will minimize at zero.

Start and Maximum Fuel Limiters


The Start Fuel Limit, for limiting overfueling or flooding during engine start-up is
active when the engine is started. This limit is derived from a four-point curve, to
give flexibility of the limiting level at different engines speeds, as the engine is
started.
When the PID takes control, the Start Fuel Limit is switched out until the engine
is stopped, and the Maximum Fuel Limit is switched in.
Start Fuel Limit #2 will be used when the Use Fuel #2 input contact is closed. A
second four-point curve sets the start fuel limit.
Woodward

Manual 91371

Frequency Load Limiter


When operating in MW Control, a load limiter is provided to control the amount
of load on the engine, when the grid frequency varies beyond the pre-set limits.
A window is established, and within this window the limiter has no effect. Once
this window is exceeded, the MW reference will be limited progressively, as the
speed deviates further out of the window. If the Unload Trip Level is reached,
the Generator Breaker Open Command will be issued. The purpose of this
limiter is to ensure that control is maintained if the speed varies due to an
unknown change to the system parameters.

Charge Air Pressure Fuel Limiter


A four point curve provides fuel limiting based on the 420 mA Charge Air
Pressure input signal. This limiter is only active once the Generator CB Aux
contact is closed.

Generator Breaker Load Rejection


In the case of a load rejection due to the generator breaker opening, a load
rejection algorithm will come into effect, giving reduced speed overshoot
characteristics. This will be activated if the load was above a certain level before
the breaker was opened. The actuator output will be driven to zero for a period
dependent on the amount of load before the breaker was opened.

Grid Breaker Load Rejection


Similar to the Generator Breaker Load Rejection (above), this algorithm will
come into effect when the Parallel With Grid contact is opened, with the load
above a certain level.

PID Control and Actuator Output


Speed/Droop/Isochronous/ Deadband MW Control
The output has tunable PID dynamics, a Gain Slope function (which adjusts
Proportional Gain as the engine load changes) and a Variable Gain function
(which multiplies the Proportional Gain as a function of the speed error). The
Variable Gain function is a linear multiplier that is selected in that way, that the
gain multiplier is increased when the speed error is increasing. In this way a
smoother switching is created between low and high gain values.
Two sets of dynamics (Proportional Gain, Integral Gain and S.D.R) are provided:

Set #1 is active when the Generator CB Aux contact is open.

Set #2 is active when the Generator CB Aux contact is closed.


The P-term of the dynamics can be multiplied by a multiplier, which is based on
the error between actual speed and speed reference. As the absolute value of
the error between actual speed and speed reference exceeds a set level
(Window Width Set Point), the P term will be multiplied with the gain ratio value.
When the torsional filter is operational, if one of the speed sensors should fail,
the Proportional Gain is multiplied by the PropGain Multiplier, in order to attempt
to slow the control down, and prevent it responding to torsionals, for which the
torsional filter was enabled to help minimize.

Direct MW Control
A single set of dynamics (Proportional Gain, Integral Gain and S.D.R.) for
operation in MW Control mode.

Actuator Hit
An Actuator Hit function is provided for testing the dynamics of the control
during commissioning of the system. This function can be enabled in Configure
mode, and once the control has reset itself, the function is only available for a
30 minute period. When the appropriate parameter is toggled true using the
Operator Interface (HHT or PC-based), a tunable value is subtracted from the
actuator output, for a tunable period of time. This will enable the operator to
check that the dynamic settings are suitable. This is a better alternative to
physically disturbing the fuel rack to check the response of an engine, as it will
provide a consistent means of test.

Run/Stop and Alarms


Closure of the Run/Stop contact (or open if the option is selected) will release
the actuator output from zero to the Start Fuel Limit level. The Run signal will
also act as a reset to any speed sensor faults, and the 723PLUS electronic
overspeed trip latch (unless the Modbus Reset has been enabled).
When changing state from Stop to Run, the Run Command will only be
recognized for engine starting, provided that the engine speed has fallen below
the override speed set point #1 and #2 (default 135 rpm), and the Rundown
Time period has elapsed.
Putting the Run/Stop contact in the stop position will cause the control to limit
the actuator output to zero. If the Generator CB Aux is closed at this time, the
control will also issue a Generator Breaker Open Command.
Woodward

Major Alarm
The Major Alarm will be activated:

if the Overspeed Trip level is exceeded

if both speed sensor inputs should fail.


The relay contact will be opened continuously, unless the option for Pulse Alarm
is selected, in which case, the contact will be opened for the Pulse Alarm Time,
and will then be re-closed.
Minor Alarm
The Minor Alarm will be activated:

if one speed signal fails

if the MW Transducer input fails - below 1 mA, above 22 mA

if the Charge Air Pressure/Reactive Power input fails - below 2 mA, above
22 mA

if the MW Reference input fails - below 2 mA, above 22 mA

if remote MW reference is selected using the Increase/Decrease contacts,


and a single signal is lost (wire-break)

if the Modbus serial communications have failed

if in MW Control, and the Frequency Limiter has come into effect

LON Alarm (one of the LON defined units is not replying)

Tie Breaker Feedback Failure


Rectification and reset of the fault, will reset the Minor Alarm.
The relay contact will be opened or closed, depending on the DO#2 NC?
parameter, and each new alarm will trigger the contact again. If a minor alarm is
present and a new minor alarm is activated, the alarm will go to the no alarm
status for 2 seconds (default) and than to the alarm status again. This option
can be used for triggering the general alarm system each time a new minor
alarm is active.

Modbus Communications and Control


Instead of the hardwired inputs, the Modbus communication can deliver the
following signals from another system, e.g. Power Management:
Run
Stop
Increase Speed/Load
Decrease Speed/Load
Select Remote MW Reference
Unload
Idle Speed Select
Rated Speed Select
Droop Mode
Isochronous Mode
MW Control Mode
Emergency Load Rate
Reset
Remote MW Reference
In Configure mode, each input which is required via the Modbus instead, should
be individually selected.
In addition to the control signals, a number of parameters can also be monitored
via the Modbus. A full listing including addresses can be found at the end of
this chapter.

Actual

PULSE/REV #1
This is the number of teeth (or holes) on the speed sensing disc, for the speed
sensors connected to the 723PLUS. Speed Sensor #1 should be located on the
engine side of the coupling. This value is needed for the analog speed sensing
in the software and must be set the same as the PULSES/REV #1 DIG value.
MAXIMUM HZ #1
This parameter allows tuning of the speed sensing algorithm, to obtain the
optimum resolution for sensing speed. It is important that the following
instructions for tuning these parameters is adhered to. The Maximum Hz should
be calculated based on both the minimum and maximum controlling speeds:
(Maximum Speed x Pulse/Rev x 1.3)/60 = A
(Minimum Speed x Pulse/Rev x 4)/60 = B
If B > A then use A as the Maximum Hz. If B < A then use B as the Maximum
Hz, provided that B is greater than 1.1 x Overspeed Trip Frequency. If not, then
contact Woodward Governor for further assistance.
Calculate separately for each speed sensor input, if Pulses/Rev #1 and
Pulses/Rev #2 are different.
PULSES/REV #1 DIG
This is the number of teeth (or holes) on the speed sensing disc, for the speed
sensor connected to the 723PLUS, Speed Sensor Input #1 . Speed sensor #1
should be located on the engine side of the coupling. This value is needed for
the digital speed sensing in the software and must be set the same as the
PULSES/REV #1 value.
PULSE/REV #2
This is the number of teeth (or holes) on the speed sensing disc, for the speed
sensors connected to the 723PLUS. Speed Sensor #2 should be located on the
generator/gearbox side of the coupling, if the torsional filter is used, otherwise, it
should be located on the same speed sensing disc as sensor #1. This value is
needed for the analog speed sensing in the software and must be set the same
as the PULSES/REV #2 DIG value.
Woodward

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

MAXIMUM HZ #2
This parameter allows tuning of the speed sensing algorithm, to obtain the
optimum resolution for sensing speed. It is important that the following
instructions for tuning these parameters is adhered to. The Maximum Hz should
be calculated based on both the minimum and maximum controlling speeds:
(Maximum Speed x Pulse/Rev x 1.3)/60 = A
(Minimum Speed x Pulse/Rev x 4)/60 = B
If B > A then use A as the Maximum Hz. If B < A then use B as the Maximum
Hz, provided that B is greater then 1.1 x Overspeed Trip Frequency. If not, then
contact Woodward Governor for further assistance.
Calculate separately for each speed sensor input, if Pulses/Rev #1 and
Pulses/Rev #2 are different.
PULSES/REV #2 DIG
This is the number of teeth (or holes) on the speed sensing disc, for the speed
sensor connected to the 723PLUS, Speed Sensor Input #2. Speed sensor #2
should be located on the generator/gearbox side of the coupling, if the torsional
filter is used, otherwise, it should be located on the same speed sensing disc as
sensor #1. This value is needed for the digital speed sensing in the software
and must be set the same as the PULSES/REV #2 value.
SPD ANA=F / DIG=T
This parameter allows the selection between analog and digital speed sensing.
TRUE means the digital speed sensing blocks in the software are processed to
the software logic. FALSE means the analog speed sensing blocks are
processed to the software logic.
Default the digital speed sensing is active (TRUE).
Changing between the different speed blocks can have influence on
the dynamic settings.
LOW SET POINT #1
This is the speed at and below which the failed speed function operates, for
speed sensor #1. This parameter should always be set lower than the Override
Speed set point.
OVERRIDE SPEED #1
This is the speed below which the failed speed detection is overridden during
the engine start and stop sequence, for speed sensor #1. This parameter
should always be set higher than the Low Set Point parameter.
This set point must be tuned with caution. If the value is set too high,
it is possible that a failed speed signal would be overridden during
normal engine operation, giving a potentially dangerous situation.
Principle of speed failure detection:
During engine start, the actual speed first exceeds the LOW SET POINT, but
the speed fault override is still on. If the speed increases, the OVERRIDE
SPEED set point will be passed and the override speed fault will be switched
off, so no speed sensor failure will occur.
During engine stop, the OVERRIDE SPEED set point will be passed first and
with a delay of 0.3 seconds, the override speed fault will be activated. If the
speed drops faster than this 0.3 seconds below the LOW SET POINT, a speed
failure will be recognized and the speed failure alarm will be activated. In case
of a real speed sensor failure, the speed drops almost instantly to zero rpm, so
the speed failure will be activated directly. During a normal stop, the engine
speed will slowly come down due to the inertia of the engine. In this way the 0.3
seconds are long enough for not activating the speed failure because the
override will be on in case the actual speed pass the LOW SET POINT.
34

Woodward

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

In most of the cases the default settings are correct. In case of problems with
speed sensor failures during stopping of the engine, the values need to be
tuned. Be aware that the set point must not be to close to each other because
of the 0.3 seconds that is needed for activating the speed fault override logic.
MINIMUM SPEED #1
This is the speed of speed sensor #1 below which the torsional filter is disabled,
and should be tuned to a setting, equivalent to 400 rpm.
LOW SET POINT #2
This is the speed at and below which the failed speed function operates, for
speed sensor #2. This parameter should always be set lower than the Override
Speed set point.
OVERRIDE SPEED #2
This is the speed below which the failed speed detection is overridden during
the engine start and stop sequence, for speed sensor #2. This parameter
should always be set higher than the Low Set point parameter.
This set point must be tuned with caution. If the value is set too high,
it is possible that a failed speed signal would be overridden during
normal engine operation, giving a potentially dangerous situation.
MINIMUM SPEED #2
This is the speed of speed sensor #2 below which the torsional filter is disabled,
and should be tuned to a setting, equivalent to 400 rpm.

INTEGRAL GAIN #1 (1/s)
PID integrator rate adjustment for the dynamics, affects recovery rate after a
transient, when the Generator CB Aux input is open. A value for I that is too

SPEED ERROR

Instead of the normal switch for Fast Gain window logic, a linear multiplier is
selected so that the gain multiplier is increased when the speed error is
increasing. In this way a smoother switching is created and no rough switching
between low and high gain values.
LOW SPEED ERROR WIN#1
This value corresponds with the maximum absolute error between actual speed
and speed reference that the normal gain value is still used. The multiplier is
until this range set to 1. In case the error is increasing, the multiplier will be
linearly increased till the SPEED GAIN RATIO #1 until the HIGH SPEED
ERROR WIN #1 is reached. In this way, the normal gain will be slowly
increased for faster response of the engine. This logic is active whilst the
Generator CB Aux input is open. The control uses the absolute value of speed
error. The unfiltered speed is used for this calculation.

HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN#1


This value corresponds with the maximum absolute error between actual speed
and speed reference that the SPEED GAIN RATIO #1 is full active. This
means that the GAIN RATIO #1 * actual gain will be the actual gain sent to the
PID controller. In case the error is decreasing, the multiplier will be linearly
decreased until the LOW SPEED ERROR WIN #1 is reached. In this way, the
normal gain will be slowly decreased for slower response of the engine. This
logic is active whilst the Generator CB Aux input is open. The control uses the
absolute value of speed error. The unfiltered speed is used for this calculation.
SPEED GAIN RATIO #1
This value corresponds with the maximum multiplying factor that the normal
gain will be multiplied with when the HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN #1 has been
reached or exceeded. For any value between the LOW SPEED ERROR WIN
#1 and HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN #1, this multiplying factor will be linearly
increased/ decreased depending if the error is getting greater or smaller.
LOW SPEED ERROR WIN#2
This value corresponds with the maximum absolute error between actual speed
and speed reference that the normal gain value is still used. The multiplier is
until this range set to 1. In case the error is increasing, the multiplier will be
linearly increased till the SPEED GAIN RATIO #2 until the HIGH SPEED
ERROR WIN #2 is reached. In this way, the normal gain will be slowly
increased for faster response of the engine. This logic is active whilst the
Generator CB Aux input is closed. The control uses the absolute value of speed
error. The unfiltered speed is used for this calculation.
HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN#2
This value corresponds with the maximum absolute error between actual speed
and speed reference that the SPEED GAIN RATIO #2 is full active. This
means that the GAIN RATIO #2 * actual gain will be the actual gain sent to the
PID controller. In case the error is decreasing, the multiplier will be linearly
decreased until the LOW SPEED ERROR WIN #2 is reached. In this way, the
normal gain will be slowly decreased for slower response of the engine. This
logic is active whilst the Generator CB Aux input is closed. The control uses the
absolute value of speed error. The unfiltered speed is used for this calculation.
SPEED GAIN RATIO #2
This value corresponds with the maximum multiplying factor that the normal
gain will be multiplied with when the HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN #2 has been
reached or exceeded. For any value between the LOW SPEED ERROR WIN
#2 and HIGH SPEED ERROR WIN #2, this multiplying factor will be linearly
increased/ decreased depending if the error is getting greater or smaller.
LOAD LEVEL (GAIN) #1
This is the load breakpoint associated with 'LOAD GAIN RATIO #1', for the

This value should be set to the resonant frequency of the speed signal which
requires filtering by the band-stop (notch) filter #1.
FILTER 1 Q FACTOR
Adjusts the attenuation of the signal frequency, filtered by the band-stop filter
#1. The minimum value of 0.707 results in zero attenuation, and as the value is
increased, the attenuation is increased, and the range of frequencies affected
broadens.

SENSOR WEIGHT
When using the torsional filter, it is possible to weight one speed sensor input
more heavily than the other. If this value is set between 0.5 and 1, sensor #1

KICKDOWN
This menu is meant for test purposes only. The purpose of the logic is to reduce
the speed increase during a load rejection.
Three different possibilities are implemented in this software version all based
on the derivative of the difference between actual speed and speed reference.
Different possibilities are:

Actuator will be set to zero in case the derivative is within a certain window

The speed reference will jump down instantly and slowly ramped back to
the original level. In this case a bigger error is created on the PID so the
PID will show a fast reaction.

The Integrator factor will be changed when inside the derivative window.
All three different options can be tested independent from each other. This
service menu is added for this purpose in order to activate and tune the
different possibilities.

KICKDOWN ACTIVE?
This parameter enables and disables the logic.
TRUE Kickdown Logic is active. When derivative of error between actual
speed and speed reference is exceeding a certain level, the logic is activated.
FALSE Kickdown Logic is disabled.
KICKDOWN ON LEVEL
This is the ON level of the kickdown logic. When the derivative is exceeding this
level, the kickdown logic is active. The logic IS deactivated when the
KICKDOWN OFF LEVEL has been reached.
KICKDOWN OFF LEVEL
This is the OFF level of the kickdown logic. When the derivative is reduced to
this level, the kickdown logic is deactivated.
ACT JMP DWN LVL
In case the kickdown logic is activated, and the ACT SPD REF DOWN?
Parameter is set to FALSE, this is the actuator jump down value the actuator is
forced to. When set to zero, the actuator is forced to zero position during the
time the logic is active. Once the KICKDOWN OFF LEVEL has been reached,
the PID takes over control of the actuator again.
ACT SPD REF DOWN?
With this parameter, the speed reference jump down logic is activated in case
the kickdown logic is active.
TRUE Speed reference jump down logic is active. In this case, the actuator
is forced down by the PID.
FALSE Speed reference jump down logic is NOT active. In this situation the
actuator is forced down by switching to the Act Jmp Dwn Lvl on the LSS Bus
after the PID.
SPD REF DWN JMP
This parameter sets the actual speed amount that the speed reference is
reduced by means of the Spd Ref Down Rate: in case the Act Spd Ref Down?,
the Kickdown Active? are set to TRUE and the kickdown levels are reached.
The value is in rpm.
SPD REF DOWN RATE
This sets the speed reference ramp down rate in rpm/Second in case the speed
reference jump down logic is active.
SPD REF BACK RATE
This sets the speed reference ramp up rate in rpm/Second in case the speed
reference jump down logic is active. With this rate the speed reference is
ramped back to its original value, once the KICKDOWN OFF LEVEL has been
reached.

ENBL I-FACTOR SWITCH?


With this parameter, the Integrator Switch logic is activated in case the
kickdown logic is active.
TRUE Integrator switch logic is active. In this case, the Integrator factor is
forced to I-Factor during Kick in case the Kickdown Active? Is set to TRUE.
To test only this option, the ACT SPD REF DOWN? Parameter is set to TRUE
and the SPD REF DWN JMP: must be set to zero. In this case only the I factor
of the PID is changed to the value as set with the I-Factor during Kick
parameter.
If combination of speed reference jump down and Integrator switch logic is
wanted, the SPD REF DWN JMP: must be set to the speed down jump value as
wanted. Now the speed reference is jumped down AND the Integrator switch
logic is active.
If combination of actuator jump down and integrator switch logic is wanted, the
parameter ACT SPD REF DOWN? Must be set to FALSE and ENBL I-FACTOR
SWITCH? must be set to TRUE and of course the Kickdown Active? Parameter
must be set to TRUE.
FALSE Integrator switch logic is not active.
I-FACTOR DURING KICK
This is the Integrator factor that will be set to the PID in case the Integrator
switch logic is active (ENBL I-FACTOR SWITCH? Set to TRUE).
ENABLE CB REF KICKDOWN?
With help of this parameter, the speed reference kickdown logic on breaker
open command can be activated.
FALSE Logic is not active
TRUE Logic is active.
CB REF DWN TIME (s)
If the ENABLE CB REF KICKDOWN? Parameter is set true, this parameter
defines the time that the speed reference is kicked down and stays at this level.
The time is set in seconds.

LOAD RATE (%/sec)


This parameter sets the load rate, when an engine is synchronized to the
existing isochronous bus, that the load is increased till load share level is
reached. It is defined as % load per second.
UNLOAD RATE (%/sec)
This parameter sets the unload rate, when an engine is wanted to take of the
existing isochronous bus, that the load is decreased till unload trip level has
been reached. It is defined as % load per second.
BUS CONNECT RATE (%/sec)
This parameter sets the load rate, when one bus part is synchronized to another
bus part, that the load is increased till load share level is reached. It is defined
as % load per second.
BUS LOAD DIFF (%)
This parameter sets the minimum load difference in % load, that no load rate
will be used when synchronized. If the difference in bus load between the
busses is bigger that this value and they are synchronized together, the load will
be soft loaded /-unloaded with the BUS CONNECT RATE (%/sec) till load share
level has been reached.

1=SERVLINK, 2=HHT
For downloading software into the 723PLUS it is necessary to switch the J1 port
to Servlink so that the PC can communicate with the control.
Once a mode is selected by changing the parameter, there is a delay of 30
seconds before the control will actually switch over. If Servlink is selected by
error, and the user cannot communicate with Servlink to switch it back to HHT,
switching the power off then on again will automatically reselect HHT.
BAUD RATE J1
This sets the baud rate for Servlink communications via the J1 port:
1=110, 2=300. 3=600, 4=1200, 5=1800, 6=2400, 7=4800, 8=9600, 9-19200,

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Chapter 6.
Modbus Communications
The 723PLUS Digital Control utilizes AEG-Modicon Incs Modbus protocol.
The Modbus protocol determines how the master and slaves establish and
break off contact, how the sender and receiver are identified, how messages
are exchanged in an orderly manner, and how errors are detected. The protocol
also controls the query and response cycle which takes place between the
master and slave devices.
The protocol provides for one master and up to 247 slaves on a common line.
Each slave is assigned a fixed unique device address in the range of 1 to 247.
Only the master can initiate a transaction. A transaction consists of a message
from the master to one of the slaves and a response from that slave to the
master.
The control supports two modes of transmission for Modbus. The mode defines
the individual units of information within a message, and the numbering system
used to transmit the data. Only one mode of transmission may be used per
Modbus system; mixing of modes is not possible. The two transmission modes
are ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) and RTU
(Remote Terminal Unit). The modes are defined in Table 6-1. The 723PLUS
DCS uses either the ASCII or the RTU transmission mode.

In RTU mode, the data is sent in 8-bit binary characters. In ASCII mode, each
RTU character is first divided into two 4-bit parts (high order and low order) and
then represented by their hexadecimal equivalent. The ASCII characters
representing the hexadecimal characters are used to construct the message.
ASCII mode uses twice as many characters as RTU mode. Additionally, in RTU
mode, message characters must be transmitted in a continuous stream. In
ASCII mode, breaks of up to 1 second can occur between characters.
There are two communication ports available in the 723PLUS. Both ports may
be configured for RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 communications. If the
communication utilizes an RS-232 link, the distance between devices is limited
to a maximum distance of 15 meters (50 feet). It should be noted that the J3
port can communicate using either ASCII or RTU mode, whereas the J2 port is
only able to communicate using ASCII.
The 723PLUS can be programmed as either a master or slave unit. When
programmed as a slave unit, it responds only after being asked for a set of
parameters. Typically the 723PLUS communicates as a slave with a Modbus
Master device utilizing a separate link to each device. However, if multidropping
is used, one or two 723PLUSs can be connected to one Master device on a
single link.

Woodward

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Manual 91371

The data is passed between the Master and the 723PLUS in the form of
message frames (see Table 6-2). On any single multidrop link, each slave
address must be unique.

Figure 6-1. Modbus Function Codes


Figure 6-2 shows typical Modbus frames for the various function codes. If a
slave detects an error in a message, it will not act on or respond to that
message. For any requested data that is undefined, the slave will respond with
a value of zero. The slave will respond with an exception response if it detects
illegal data in a message. The following tables (Tables 6-4 and 6-5) list the
exception errors which can be displayed by the 723PLUS control.

The Modbus communication ports in the 723PLUS are custom programmed for
each application, and have unique Modbus addresses. The Modbus address
listing consists of Boolean Writes, Boolean Reads, Analog Reads, and Analog
Writes. The Boolean reads and writes are also referred to as input and holding
coils. The analog reads and writes are also referred to as input registers and
holding registers.
All values that can be addressed by Modbus are considered to be discrete and
numeric. The discretes are a 1 bit binary, on or off value and the numerics are
16 bit values. Registers are interpreted by the 723PLUS as signed 16 bit
integers. The maximum number of analogs in a single message is 59 for ASCII
mode and 118 for RTU mode. The maximum number of digitals in a single
message is 944 for ASCII mode and 1888 for RTU mode.
Boolean Writes (Holding Coils)
Holding coils are logical signals that are both readable from and writable to the
723PLUS. An example of a Boolean write value would be raise or lower
commands. A logical true denoted by the value 1 will cause the command listed
in the description to be executed. The 723PLUS control supports function codes
1, 5 and 15. These correspond to reading selected holding coils, writing to a
single holding coil, and writing to a multiple holding coils, respectively.
Boolean Reads (Input Coils)
Input Coils are logical signals that are readable from, but not writable to, the
723PLUS. An example of a Boolean read value would be an alarm indication.
The 1: term in the address identifies an input coil. The 723PLUS supports
Modbus function code 2, which involves reading selected input coils.
Analog Reads (Input Registers)
Input registers are analog values that are readable from, but not writable to, the
723PLUS. An example of an analog read value would be engine speed. The
value of the input registers are stored internal to the control as floating point
numbers representing engineering units (i.e. rpm or Hz). The values that are
transmitted are integer values ranging from -32767 to +32767. Since Modbus
can only handle integers, values that have a decimal point should be multiplied
by a constant before being sent by Modbus. The 723PLUS supports Modbus
function code 4, which involves reading selected input registers.
Analog Writes (Holding Registers)
Holding registers are analog values that are writable to, but not readable from,
the 723PLUS. An example of an analog write value would be a kW load
reference. The value of the holding registers are also stored in the control as
numbers representing engineering units. The 723PLUS supports Modbus
function codes 3, 6 and 16. These correspond to reading selected holding
registers, writing to a single holding register, and writing to multiple holding
registers, respectively.

PC Interface
A PC Interface may be provided for tuning parameters, instead of the Hand
Held Programmer. This will consist of the Servlink Server, which acts as the
interface between the PC and the 723PLUS. The J2 port hardware
communication link is configurable for RS-232 or RS-422, and the
communications protocol is the Woodward developed Servlink. The J1 port is
only RS-422.
The Woodward Watch Window can be used to interface with the Servlink
Server, as a means for displaying the Service and Configure tunable/monitors,
with the ability for tuning the parameters. Watch Window also offers the ability
to upload the tunable parameters from the control, into a file, and also to
download the parameters stored in the file, into a control (of the same
type/application).
With each application manual. a list of each of the tunable parameters will be
provided along with a description of each. Also, a listing of each of the tunable
with the default values and the range of adjustment will be included.
The PC Interface should be installed on a PC running a Windows 32 bit
operating system.

Watch Window
The Watch Window is a tool for viewing and adjusting the parameters of the
723PLUS Control. An application can be quickly and easily developed by the
user, by assembling a number of tabbed sheets, onto which are dropped, the
parameters that are required for monitoring/adjusting. The Watch Window is
made up of three types of window; Main Window, Servlink Explorer and Servlink
Inspector.
The following is an example of the Watch Window:

Main Window

The Main Window is the application controlling window, and provides the
standard menus for opening/closing/saving files, Cut/Copy/Paste of parameters,
and also for adding/removing/renaming tabbed sheets to the application.

Servlink Explorer

The Explorer is used to browse the set of variables available through the
Servlink Server. The Explorer is composed a set of tabbed sheets. Each sheet
is associated with a single control from a Servlink network. The sheets tab is
labeled with the associated controls identifier.
Each sheet contains a tree view. The tree view displays the names of the
categories and blocks in a controls application program in a hierarchical
structure. The names at each level in the tree are listed in alphabetical order.
The Watch Window which is normally supplied will display the Configure and
Service menus only.
Selected variables can be used in Copy and Paste or Drag and Drop operations
in order to add a variable to an Inspector. Variables can be selected using the
mouse (left click) or keyboard (arrow keys). Selecting categories or blocks
selects all of the fields underneath them.

Manual 91371

723PLUS Generator Control for Wrtsil

Servlink Inspector
The Inspector is used to monitor and edit variables available through the
Servlink Server. The Inspector is composed of a set of tabbed sheets. Each
sheet contains a grid (the grid shown in the following example is reduced - other
fields headers are available to define which control a variable relates to, and if
relevant, which category and block name. Each sheets tab is labeled with a
user-definable name. The user has the ability to add and remove sheets using
menu items and/or tool bar buttons in the Main Window.

An icon to the left of the variable defines whether it is a monitor value, configure
tunable or service tunable (or debug tunable if relevant):
Service Tunable
Monitor Value
Configure Tunable
One or more variables can be selected using the mouse (left click) or keyboard
(arrow keys). If the user wishes to select multiple variables, they can do so by
performing one of these sequences:

Select a variable, hold down the shift key, and arrow up or down until all of
the variables are selected.

Click on a variable, hold down the shift key, and click on the last variable in
the series that the user wishes to select.
Selected variables can be used in Cut, Copy and Paste or Drag and Drop
operations in order to add a variable to an Inspector. If the selected variable is
tunable or configurable the status bar will display the minimum and maximum
value for that variable. If multiple variables are selected, the minimum and
maximum will not be displayed for any of the selected variables.
The Inspector can have its configuration saved and restored. The Inspector can be
closed by using the Main Window or by clicking the standard windows close button.

Service Options
Product Service Options
If you are experiencing problems with the installation, or unsatisfactory
performance of a Woodward product, the following options are available:
Consult the troubleshooting guide in the manual.
Contact the manufacturer or packager of your system.
Contact the Woodward Full Service Distributor serving your area.
Contact Woodward technical assistance (see How to Contact Woodward
later in this chapter) and discuss your problem. In many cases, your
problem can be resolved over the phone. If not, you can select which
course of action to pursue based on the available services listed in this
chapter.
OEM and Packager Support: Many Woodward controls and control devices are
installed into the equipment system and programmed by an Original Equipment
Manufacturer (OEM) or Equipment Packager at their factory. In some cases, the
programming is password-protected by the OEM or packager, and they are the
best source for product service and support. Warranty service for Woodward
products shipped with an equipment system should also be handled through the
OEM or Packager. Please review your equipment system documentation for
details.
Woodward Business Partner Support: Woodward works with and supports a
global network of independent business partners whose mission is to serve the
users of Woodward controls, as described here:

A Full Service Distributor has the primary responsibility for sales, service,
system integration solutions, technical desk support, and aftermarket
marketing of standard Woodward products within a specific geographic area
and market segment.

An Authorized Independent Service Facility (AISF) provides authorized


service that includes repairs, repair parts, and warranty service on Woodward's
behalf. Service (not new unit sales) is an AISF's primary mission.

A Recognized Engine Retrofitter (RER) is an independent company that


does retrofits and upgrades on reciprocating gas engines and dual-fuel
conversions, and can provide the full line of Woodward systems and
components for the retrofits and overhauls, emission compliance upgrades,
long term service contracts, emergency repairs, etc.

Woodward Factory Servicing Options


The following factory options for servicing Woodward products are available
through your local Full-Service Distributor or the OEM or Packager of the
equipment system, based on the standard Woodward Product and Service
Warranty (5-01-1205) that is in effect at the time the product is originally
shipped from Woodward or a service is performed:
Replacement/Exchange (24-hour service)
Flat Rate Repair
Flat Rate Remanufacture
Replacement/Exchange: Replacement/Exchange is a premium program
designed for the user who is in need of immediate service. It allows you to
request and receive a like-new replacement unit in minimum time (usually within
24 hours of the request), providing a suitable unit is available at the time of the
request, thereby minimizing costly downtime. This is a flat-rate program and
includes the full standard Woodward product warranty (Woodward Product and
Service Warranty 5-01-1205).
This option allows you to call your Full-Service Distributor in the event of an
unexpected outage, or in advance of a scheduled outage, to request a
replacement control unit. If the unit is available at the time of the call, it can
usually be shipped out within 24 hours. You replace your field control unit with
the like-new replacement and return the field unit to the Full-Service Distributor.
Charges for the Replacement/Exchange service are based on a flat rate plus
shipping expenses. You are invoiced the flat rate replacement/exchange charge
plus a core charge at the time the replacement unit is shipped. If the core (field
unit) is returned within 60 days, a credit for the core charge will be issued.
Flat Rate Repair: Flat Rate Repair is available for the majority of standard
products in the field. This program offers you repair service for your products
with the advantage of knowing in advance what the cost will be. All repair work
carries the standard Woodward service warranty (Woodward Product and
Service Warranty 5-01-1205) on replaced parts and labor.
Flat Rate Remanufacture: Flat Rate Remanufacture is very similar to the Flat
Rate Repair option with the exception that the unit will be returned to you in
like-new condition and carry with it the full standard Woodward product
warranty (Woodward Product and Service Warranty 5-01-1205). This option is
applicable to mechanical products only.

Returning Equipment for Repair


If a control (or any part of an electronic control) is to be returned for repair,
please contact your Full-Service Distributor in advance to obtain Return
Authorization and shipping instructions.
When shipping the item(s), attach a tag with the following information:

return authorization number;

name and location where the control is installed;

name and phone number of contact person;

complete Woodward part number(s) and serial number(s);

description of the problem;

instructions describing the desired type of repair.
