Stamford AVR MX341
Mx341 general description
The MX341 is a two phase sensed
Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) and forms part of the excitation system for a brushless generator.
In addition to regulating the generator voltage, the AVR circuitry includes protective features to ensure safe reliable control of the generator. Excitation power is derived from a permanent magnet generator (PMG) to guarantee low Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and immunity from thyristor type loads.
The AVR is linked with the main stator windings and controls the power fed to the exciter stator and hence the main rotor to maintain the machine output voltage within the specified limits, compensating for load, speed, temperature and power factor of the generator.
Soft start circuitry is included to provide a smooth controlled build up of generator output voltage.
A frequency measuring circuit continually monitors the shaft speed of the generator and provides underspeed protection of the excitation system by reducing the generator output voltage proportionally with speed below a presettable threshold. A further enhancement of this feature is an adjustable volts/Hz slope to improve frequency recovery time on turbo charged engines.
Uncontrolled over excitation is limited to a safe period by internal shutdown of the AVR output device. This condition remains latched until the generator has been stopped.
Provision is made for the connection of a remote voltage trimmer allowing the user fine control of the generator's output.
Accessories are available for this AVR. Please refer to factory for further details.
