1 BIBLIOGRAPHY
This document refers to and is referred to by the following DSE publications which can be obtained from the
DSE website www.deepseaplc.com :

DSE PART DESCRIPTION


057-097 DSE332 ATS operator manual
057-118 DSE333 ATS operator manual

2 DESCRIPTION
The DSE300 Series configuration suite allows the 300 family of ATS control modules (DSE332 / DSE333)
to be connected to a PC via USB A USB B cable. Once connected the various operating parameters within
the module can be viewed or edited as required by the engineer.

The configuration suite should only be used by competent, qualified personnel, as changes to the operation of
the module may have safety implications on the panel / generating set to which it is fitted. Access to critical
operational sequences and settings for use by qualified engineers, may be barred by a security code set by
the generator provider.
The information contained in this manual should be read in conjunction with the information contained in the
appropriate module documentation. This manual only details which settings are available and how they may
be used.
A separate manual deals with the operation of the individual module (See section entitled Bibliography
elsewhere in this document).

Breaker scheme A is suitable for contactors or ACBs.

NOTE : Generator Closed Auxiliary and Mains Closed Auxiliary inputs do not affect the operation
of the load switching in Breaker Scheme A

6.3.1.1 MAINS / GENERATOR LOAD INHIBIT


Activation of an input configured to mains load inhibit or generator load inhibit inputs cause the corresponding
breaker to be opened immediately. No other change in function will occur.
When the input is deactivated the breaker is closed again if appropriate.

6.3.1.2 LOAD SHEDDING


If an input configured to Load Shed is activated, outputs set to Open Mains and Open Gen will energise, and
inputs configured to Close Mains and Close Gen will de-energise. Open Mains Pulse and Open Gen Pulse
outputs will only energise if the corresponding supply was on load before application of the Load Shed input.
When the Load Shed input is deactivated, the load will be transferred back to the supply that was
disconnected before application of the input.

DSE300 Series ATS Configuration Suite

6.4.1 INPUT FUNCTIONS


Under the scope of IEEE 37.2, function numbers can also be used to represent functions in microprocessor
devices and software programs. Where the DSE input functions can be represented by IEEE 37.2, the
function number is listed below.

Function Description
Not used The input is disabled
Alarm Mute This input is used to silence the audible alarm from an external source,
such as a remote mute switch.
Alarm Reset This input is used to reset any latched alarms from a remote location. It
is also used to clear any latched warnings which may have occurred (if
configured) without having to stop the generator.
Auto Restore Inhibit In the event of a remote start/mains failure, the generator will be
IEEE 37.2 - 3 checking or instructed to start and take load. On removal of the remote start
interlocking relay signal/mains return the module will continue to run the generator on
load until the Auto Restore Inhibit input is removed. This input allows
the controller to be fitted as part of a system where the restoration to
mains is controlled remotely or by an automated system.
Auto start Inhibit This input is used to provide an over-ride function to prevent the
IEEE 37.2 - 3 checking or controller from starting the generator in the event of a remote
interlocking relay start/mains out of limits condition occurring. If this input is active and a
remote start signal/mains failure occurs the module will not give a start
command to the generator. If this input signal is then removed, the
controller will operate as if a remote start/mains failure has occurred,
starting and loading the generator. This function can be used to give an
AND function so that a generator will only be called to start if the
mains fails and another condition exists which requires the generator to
run. If the Auto start Inhibit signal becomes active once more it will be
ignored until the module has returned the mains supply on load and
shutdown.
This input does not prevent starting of the engine in MANUAL or TEST
modes.
Auxiliary Generator Ready Allows an external device (such as the engine control module) to
instruct the ATS controller that the system is healthy and available to
take load. The ATS controller then monitors the voltage and frequency
to check they are within acceptable limits before performing the load
transfer function.

Input K is fixed to provide this function.


If not required, configure input k to open to activate and leave input K
disconnected. Alternatively, connect input K permanently to the DC
positive supply.
Auxiliary Mains Fail The module will monitor the incoming single or three phase supply for
Over voltage, Under Voltage, Over Frequency or Under frequency. It
may be required to monitor a different mains supply or some aspect of
the incoming mains not monitored by the controller. If the devices
providing this additional monitoring are connected to operate this input,
the controller will operate as if the incoming mains supply has fallen
outside of limits, the generator will be instructed to start and take the
load. Removal of the input signal will cause the module to act if the
mains has returned to within limits providing that the mains sensing also
indicates that the mains is within limits.
Generator Closed Auxiliary This input is used to provide feedback to allow the controller to give true
IEEE 37.2 - 3 Checking or indication of the contactor or circuit breaker switching status. It should
interlocking relay be connected to the generator load switching device auxiliary contact.
(breaker acheme B)
In Breaker Scheme A, Incorrect application of this signal does not
trigger an alarm condition, it is used solely for indication of the breaker
status.

In Breaker Scheme B this feedback is used for internal interlocking of


the breaker outputs.

DSE300 Series configuration suite 057-106 ISSUE 2 AM 23


DSE300 Series ATS Configuration Suite

Generator Load Inhibit This input is used to prevent the controller from loading the generator. If
IEEE 37.2 - 52 AC circuit breaker the generator is already on load, activating this input will cause the 300
series controller to unload the generator. Removing the input will allow
the generator to be loaded again.

NOTE: -This input only operates to control the generator-


switching device if the 300 load switching logic is attempting to
load the generator. It will not control the generator-switching
device when the mains supply is on load.
Inhibit scheduled run This input is used to prevent operation of the set by the internal
Scheduler function.
Lamp Test This input is used to provide a test facility for the front panel indicators
fitted to the 300 module. When the input is activated all LEDs should
illuminate.
Load Shedding Opens both the mains and generator load switch devices. See the
section entitled Breaker Scheme for details of how this input interacts
with the load switching control.
Mains closed Auxiliary This input is used to provide feedback to allow the 300to give true
IEEE 37.2 - 3 Checking or indication of the contactor or circuit breaker switching status. It should
interlocking relay be connected to the mains load switching device auxiliary contact.
(breaker acheme B)
In Breaker Scheme A, Incorrect application of this signal does not
trigger an alarm condition, it is used solely for indication of the breaker
status.

In Breaker Scheme B this feedback is used for internal interlocking of


the breaker outputs.
Mains Load Inhibit This input is used to prevent the 300from loading the mains supply. If
IEEE 37.2 - 3 checking or the mains supply is already on load activating this input will cause the
interlocking relay 300to unload the mains supply. Removing the input will allow the mains
to be loaded again.

NOTE: -This input only operates to control the mains


switching device if the 300load switching logic is attempting to
load the mains. It will not control the mains switching device when
the generator is on load.
Open / Close generator Allows connection of an external signal to control open and closing of
IEEE 37.2 - 52 AC circuit breaker the generator load switch device.
Open / Close mains Allows connection of an external signal to control open and closing of
IEEE 37.2 - 52 AC circuit breaker the mains load switch device.
Panel Lock Locks the module into the current operating mode.
Remote Start off load If this input is active, operation will be similar to the Remote Start on
load function except that the generator will not be instructed to take the
load. This function can be used where an engine only run is required
e.g. for exercise.
Remote Start on load When in auto mode, the module will perform the start sequence and
transfer load to the generator.

6.6 TIMERS
Many timers are associated with alarms. Where this occurs, the timer for the alarm is located on the same
page as the alarm setting. Timers not associated with an alarm are located on the timers page.
The timers page is subdivided into smaller sections. Select the required section with the mouse.

Click and drag to change the setting.


Timers increment in steps of 1 second up to
one minute, then in steps of 30 seconds up
to 30minutes, then in steps of 30 minutes
thereafter (where allowed by the limits of the
timer).

6.6.1 START TIMERS

Timer Description
Mains Transient Delay Used to give a delay between the mains supply being measured out of limits, and acceptance
that the mains has failed. This can be used to prevent the generator starting caused by short
term events on the mains supply.
Start delay Used to give a delay before starting in AUTO mode. This timer is activated upon a remote start
signal being applied, or upon a start due to mains failure, scheduled run or any other automatic
start.
Typically this timer is applied to prevent starting upon fleeting remote start signals or short term
mains failures.
Warming up time The amount of time that the set will run BEFORE being allowed to take load. This is used to
warm the engine to prevent excessive wear.
Generator Fail Delay The 332 instructs the set to start and waits for the period of this timer for the set to become
available. If it is not available when the timer expires, the generator failure alarm is triggerred.
Elevator Delay Use to delay the elevator control output before and after load transfer takes place. See section
entitled Application for details of elevator control.

6.6.2 LOAD / STOPPING TIMERS Click and drag to change the setting.
Timers increment in steps of 1second up
to one minute, then in steps of
30seconds up to 30minutes, then in steps
of 30minutes thereafter (where allowed
by the limits of the timer).

If you need to change the timer by a


small amount, try clicking with the
mouse to the side of the adjust handle
to the right (increase) or left (decrease).

Alternatively once youve selected the


timer, you can use the left (decrease) or
right (increase) keyboard keys.

Timer Description
Transfer Time The time between the generator load switch being opened and the mains load switch being
closed (or vice versa). Used to give time for the load switches to move to their correct
positions and to prevent the mechanical interlock from jamming.
This timer can also be used to give a dead time to ensure that any machinery stops fully after
removal of the supply, before applying the new supply to the equipment (for instance directly
driven AC motors).
Breaker close pulse The amount of time that Breaker Close Pulse signals will be present when the request to
close a breaker is given.
Breaker Trip pulse The amount of time that Breaker Open Pulse signals will be present when the request to open
a breaker is given.
Return delay A delay, used in auto mode only, that allows for short term removal of the request to stop the
set before action is taken. This is usually used to ensure the set remains on load before
accepting that the start request has been removed.
Cooling time The amount of time that the set will be made to run OFF LOAD before being stopped. This is
to allow the set to cool down and is particularly important for engines with turbo chargers.
Fail to stop delay If the set is called to stop and is still running after the fail to stop delay, a Fail to Stop alarm is
generated.
Generator transient Used to delay the generator under/over volts/frequency alarms. Typically this is used to
delay prevent spurious shutdown alarms caused by large changes in load levels.
