Caterpillar manufacture a wide range of generators, such as:
The generators are used in diverse applications from standby power for commercial buildings up to prime-power, power stations such as:
Simultaneously, the control system network architecture is optimised. SCADA in power distribution systems may be used for the control of the generators, either individually or as a dispatch-able generation unit.
The electrical protection system is developed from the power system studies and interfaced to the control system and the SCADA.
The power and control systems need to interface with the Caterpillar generators. The generators are delivered as manufactured units from overseas but require installation, testing and commissioning at the project site.
The detailed design for the electrical power and control enables purchasing of the control panels, motor control centres, low voltage switchgear assemblies, medium voltage switchgear assemblies, transformers, cables and switch-rooms, as required by the project.
