Designing a Reliable & Sustainable  Generator System

This presentation will delve into topics like the time and technology that is invested in designing a genset system, the amount of steps it takes to ensure the development and reliability, and other important subjects like oil make-up systems, fuel storage, redundant communication and sound levels. There are also several "checks and balances" built in during the process to ensure the correct product is being developed and sold.

Creating an Alternate Power Generation Source that Maximizes Efficiency & Redundancy

A Midstream Company required 100% backup power for a gas processing plant. In order to maximize efficiency and redundancy, the decision was made to use 23 360kW generators to provide the grid support, Peak Shave and Black Start power to a gas compression plant. The system was controlled both locally, as well as remotely from over 600 miles away.

The system consisted of 23 generators in 5 groups. Challenges arose with integration of products from multiple vendors who operate from multiple communications systems, genset synchronization, multiple breaker schemes and logic development for three modes of operation.

Ronnie Carroll and Michael Brown will discuss the challenges of this system that was successfully paralleled to utility and took the entire plant load in approximately 18-20 seconds consistently with all generators starting and paralleling across the 5 group breakers.

The Anatomy of Success
There are certain basic rules for succeeding in life that undercut all of the peripheral advice and theories normally advanced by go-getting motivational speakers and seminars. This presentation will reveal the common denominators that underlie almost all success in most of the areas where people strive to advance.
These common-sense basis rules unlock the doors to achievement regardless of obstacles, opposition and self-doubt.

Barriers to success melt away when the common denominators are applied rigorously and with skill. Among these fundamentals are the essential qualities of leadership mandatory to succeed in building a successful business group.
