Free Excitation System Specification


If you are interested in best practices for excitation system design, Reivax has developed a standard excitation system specification and we are making this document available for free. This technical specification for an excitation system is a template that covers the most common industry requirements and ensures compliance with IEEE 421.5 and MOD24-26 + PRC19.

This free excitation system specification makes it easy for engineers to easily define the project scope and requirements. The procurement specification is provided as an open file so that the document can be adapted as needed. The static excitation template covers the crucial aspects of exciter design from:

  • Mechanical requirements and best practices;
  • Rectifier converter requirements. Including converter redundancy, fan redundancy, temperature monitoring and other features;
  • Modern control requirements for a microprocessor based system. Including, control and I/O redundancy and communications interface (IRIG-B, Modbus etc.);
  • Modern features to simplify tuning, modeling and compliance. For example tuning helpers, frequency sweep capability as well as on-board datalogging and conversion to COMTRADE format;

Our excitation system specification template is generic and meant to cover typical industry standards. However, if you would like to learn more about the Reivax RTX Power excitation system please visit our product page. The RTX Power has the most intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) in the market. It is easy to learn and to use in addition of having a functional design that clearly displays all information needed for field operation. The RTX Power can be used as a Static Excitation System or an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR), controlling medium and large sized synchronous machines.

Also, check our RTX Energy and Power System Stabilizer (PPS) for more excitation systems.

If you have suggestions or specific requirements that we can include to further improve the static excitation specification, please let us know.

For any further questions, Reivax is available to answer technical questions or provide budgetary estimates.
