Paralleling Controls

Posted on May 16, 2012

Cummins Power Generation has developed a new system-level control for parallel operation of multiple generator sets. The DMC 1500 Paralleling System combines Cummins Power Generation’s PowerCommand microprocessor-based control technology with a new icon-based graphical user interface designed to enhance ease of use.

The system consists of a PowerCommand system-level digital master control integrated with custom-engineered switchgear. The DMC 1500 communicates directly with PowerCommand generator set and transfer switch controls for seamless integration, the company said.

DMC 1500 Paralleling Systems are offered for low- or medium-voltage applications in either emergency or prime power applications.
