Summary:

This document describes the installation of the Generator Field Monitoring System.

Installation Overview

  1. Replace the existing data acquisition hardware to allow for integration into InsightCMTM.

  2. Remove the no longer needed touchscreen, as all data will be viewable in InsightCMTM, and replace with the provided faceplate plug.

  3. Connect the signal cables from the rotor flux probe to the Generator Field Monitoring System.

  4. Connect the Generator Field Monitoring System's data output to the plant server.

Routing the Signal Cable from the Rotor Flux Probe

This section covers the requirements relating to the routing and termination of the rotor flux signal cable.  

The location of the rotor flux probe may vary from generator to generator. Cutsforth will rely on the plant to locate the rotor flux probe and/or its signal pick-up point. It is recommended that the total length of the rotor flux signal cables from the rotor flux probe to the Generator Field Monitoring System, be kept at or below 100 ft.  

For the rotor flux signal cable, Cutsforth recommends an 18 AWG shielded, twisted pair cable with a drain wire. The procurement of this cable and its connectors to fit the flux probe are the responsibility of the plant’s electrical contractor.

Running Data Connections to the Server

This section covers the data connections for the Generator Field Monitoring System.

Cutsforth recommends a CAT6a cable for the data output from the Generator Field Monitoring System to the control room. The data output cabling should be run to the control room in liquid-tight conduit.
