This site–specific course is designed to enhance maintenance and engineering personnel skills necessary to operate, maintain, and troubleshoot an EX2100e Exciter or Regulator system and related communications networks.
Training consists of classroom theory, classroom exercises, as well as site visits to teach the participants operation, basic troubleshooting, and maintenance skills. The participants will perform classroom lab exercises using an EX2100e simulator for “hands-on” training. There will be a minimum one (1), EX2100e simulator as well as site-specific software and documentation.
The objective of this course is for the participant to learn, and then demonstrate to the instructor, the following items using the classroom trainer:
Safe On-Line and Off-Line Generator Operation
Operation of the Generator in a Under or Over Excited Limit
Connect a “Laptop” to the Simulator and Go On-Line with the Exciter File
Read Fault and Alarm Active Messages and History Using the Keypads
Change an Exciter Parameter
Search for Exciter Parameters Settings Identified by the Instructor
Determine if all Control Cores Equal the Exciter Configuration File and if Not Determine the Differences
Identify EX2100e Problems “Entered Into the System by the Instructor” ie Troubleshooting Examples
Using the Site Excitation Elementary Drawings:
Identify the modular device on the drawing and locate the device in the EX2100e site equipment
Describe the meaning of symbols on the drawings as requested by the instructor
List the steps required to safely Lockout and Tag-out the EX2100e in order to replace a thyristor
