Signal Words in Safety Messages


io

The safety alert symbol is used to identify safety


information about hazards that can result in personal
n

injury.
A signal word (DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION) is
used with the alert symbol to indicate the likelihood and
the potential severity of injury. In addition, a hazard
symbol may be used to represent the type of hazard.

DANGER indicates a hazard which, if not avoided,


will result in death or serious injury.

WARNING indicates a hazard, which, if not


avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

CAUTION indicates a hazard which, if not avoided,


could result in minor or moderate injury.

NOTICE address practices not related to personal


injury.

Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR)
The voltage regulator acts to increase or decrease
current flow to the rotor windings based on the
demands of the load connected to the generator. The
increase or decrease in current flow through the rotor
results in a proportional increase or decrease in the
rotor’s magnetic field strength, which is what induces
(AC) current in the power windings of the stator.
The operating sequence for this type of voltage
regulator is as follows:
