The ageing emergency generator control panels at two different water treatment facilities were having reliability issues and is constantly plagued with false trips. Most of the parts are obsolete and this made operational readiness as backup power more difficult. As one of the critical water treatment plant serving the Klang Valley, they cannot afford a blackout.
The panels were replaced using Woodward’s Easygens 3200 for power management controls such as automatic mains failure starting, auto synchronizing, automatic load sharing and generator protection. A Woodward LS-5 is used for synchronizing with the grid.
The engine governors were replaced with 2301D and UG Actuators.
