Testbed for Generator Torque Oscillations
Testbed for Measurement and Control of Generator Power Oscillations — Generators work effectively via a carefully controlled current. If the system is overloaded, the generator may near its transient stability and incur damage. In some cases, generators have been known to endure current fluctuations without damage. Our goal is to explore those edge cases and design a testbed to examine and collect measurement data. The value of this project is to give engineers some basic data to avoid damage and danger of synchronous machines.
