The lower part of the breaker comprises a real breaker operated by the simulator electrical system mathematical model. The upper panel contains the instruments and controls for a typical high voltage generator. The controls and instruments are connected to the simulator model via a digital analogue interface.
To simulate LCD type Power Management System controllers, a precisely developed small touch screen display simulates the controller functionality.
The simulator is connected to the breaker using a Wago COTS automation interface which may also be used for automation training. The bus ties and generator breakers are installed in the main switchboard and are normally ‘front loading’ Vacuum Circuit Breakers. The electrical systems are of common design and operate at the following voltages:
- Up to 6600 v
- 3 phase
- 60 hz
- Generators 3350 to 4000 kw
