Course Description

O-ELX11003

Excitation - LS2100e LCI for Turbine Static Start

 

Course Description

This course is designed for engineering and maintenance personnel who configure, and maintain the LCI™ static starter. Laboratory assignments include hardware identification, Hyper terminal and Control System ToolboxST™ communications, understanding the monitor commands, and user diagnostic tests. This course will utilize Simulators, and a full functioning LCI™ starter. Lectures and hands-on exercises develop a thorough understanding of the equipment.

Duration

4 Days

Target Audience

Supervisors

Electrical Maintenance

Instrumentation & Controls

Qualified engineers and technicians who wish to gain an understanding of the LCI™ synchronous generator starting system

Prerequisites

Instruction is given in English, therefore a reasonable ability to read and understand spoken English is required

Reasonable computer skills

Electrical experience/education

Participants are encouraged to research their turbine-generator equipment and documentation to verify they have an Innovation Series LCI™ static starter, and to bring a copy of their system elementary drawing with them to class.

Class Size

Maximum number of students:  12

Learning Objectives

This course will provide basic knowledge on the following:

  • What the LS2100e is used for

  • How the LS2100e changes the speed of the generator/motor

  • Maintenance on the pump panel

  • Understanding of the .tcw  file used in the Control ST™

  • Understand and troubleshoot the connectivity between the LS2100e, the Turbine Control, and the Exciter
