5332Stand Alone Operation

The PECS can be configured to function in a stand-alone (SA) mode of operation. In that case, the system behaves as an independent voltage source and supplies the current demanded by the load (in terms of both magnitude and phase). There are many advantages to utilizing power electronics in an SA generator. Similar to an adjustable speed drive (ASD), the PECS is capable of providing variable voltage and variable frequency power to the load. For example, if an MT system were operating a process control motor, it would be capable of varying the speed to optimize the process. With this capability, a single MT system can replace the combination of a reciprocating engine-generator along with an ASD used to control a motor load.
