Control & monitoring system for Guascor Energy gas engines & gen-sets
GCS reduces complexity at competitive integration costs
At Guascor Energy we always go one step further to offer the best products and services to our clients. That is why we introduced our own Control Systems GCS to all our engines, and we offer them also for gensets and plants.
The control system is the brain of the engine, is the one that tells the engine what to do, when and how to ensure the best performance and a completely safe operation.
The Guascor Energy GCS is a technologically advanced system that allows you to control and monitor your plant, while maximizing equipment efficiency. It comprises the whole engine parameters control, the alarms management and also includes a unique diagnostics and trending software. The GCS concept significantly reduces complexity reducing integration costs
The GCS-E governs the engine unit. It is a Plug & Play autonomous engine control that simplifies installation and commissioning
The control onto the engine, GCS-E, captures the following parameter:
- Ignition and timing; emissions control
- Knocking detection
- Speed /load control
- Pre-heating (Water/Oil)
Now Guascor Energy offers as an option an engine control algorithm based on NOx emissions direct measures.
The advantages of this new control include a greater stability of emissions over time, improved start-up and service times due to the possibility of self-carburation, improved engine operation by ensuring correct carburetion and of course improved diagnosis and protection by using the NOx signals.
The control GCS-G captures the following parameters:
- Gas ramp
- Batteries charger
- Cooling control
- Thermal recovery
- Auxiliary equipment status
- Power output
The GCS-P governs the different elements of the power plant. GCS-P system controls the GCS-G gen-sets when > 6 gen-sets operate in island mode or a complex installation is required.
GCS-P system governs:
- GCS-G units as the master of the gen-sets
- The operation of the grid switch
- Co-generation machines
- Additional ancillary operations
