Title: SYNCHRONIZATION OF PARALLEL GENSETS WITH SOURCE ARBITRATION
Abstract:
A method of synchronization comprises receiving, at a first generator set, data indicating a characteristic for a component of a voltage for a source, and receiving, at a second generator set, the data indicating the characteristic for the component of the voltage for the source. The method also includes calculating, by each of the first and second generator sets, a speed offset parameter and a voltage offset parameter based on the received data. The first and second generator sets are configured to receive the same data indicating the component and independently calculate the same speed offset parameter and voltage offset parameter. The method further includes controlling operation of the first and second generator sets based on the calculated speed offset and voltage offset parameters.
