The easYgen-3200 provides the user with a selection of bias signals to operate numerous speed controls and voltage regulators. The easYgen-3200 may be configured to use analog voltage and/or current signals, PWM signals, or raise/lower contacts to increase or decrease the speed and voltage reference point.

Controller
Introduction

P (Proportional gain) The proportional gain indicates the closed-loop control system gain. By increasing the gain, the response is increased to permit larger corrections to the variable to be controlled. The further out of tolerance the process is the larger the response action to return the process to the control set point. If the gain is configured too high, the result is excessive overshoot/undershoot of the desired value.

5 Proprietary Information

Controller
Introduction

I (Integral gain) The integral gain represents the I-component of the PID controller. The integral corrects for any offset (between set point and process variable) automatically over time by shifting the proportioning band. Integral gain automatically changes the output requirements until the process variable and the set point are the same. This parameter permits the user to adjust how quickly the integral attempts to correct for any offset.

Controller
Introduction

D (Derivative ratio) The derivative represents the D-component of the PID controller. By increasing this parameter, the stability of the system is increased. The controller will attempt to slow down the action of the throttle in an attempt to prevent excessive overshoot or undershoot. Essentially, derivative acts as the brake for the process.

Introduction

Load sharing over the CAN bus Real load sharing is performed as a utilization factor. (Generators compare measured load:generator rating) Reactive load sharing is performed as a utilization factor. (Generators compare measured reactive load:generator rating) Maximum of 32 units can load-share Split bus applications are possible with up to four bus bars (different segment numbers)
