March 2017, Powell River Energy, owned by Brookfield Renewable Energy Group, has awarded the equipment supply of one (1) static excitation system to Reivax North America for its Lois River station in British Columbia. Reivax North America will supply its RTX Power excitation system rated for a maximum continuous field current of 1,000ADC even though the actual maximum continuous rated field current of the generator is 537ADC. This solution will allow the excitation system to run cool in a high ambient temperature environment and facilitate any future uprating of the generator. Reivax supplied an excitation transformer, as well.
