|Title||Design of an Automatic Synchronizing Device for Dual-Electrical Generators Based on CAN Protocol|
Automatic synchronizers are widely employed to connect more than one synchronous generator. The main task of a synchronizer is to capture the voltage, frequency and phase differences between the generators accurately and rapidly. This thesis introduces a new automatic synchronizer for dual generators based on CAN “controller area network” protocol. The device consists of three independent microcontroller modules connected with CAN protocol. One of them is called the circuit control breaker, it is responsible for closing the circuit breaker between the generators. The other two modules are assigned to capture the voltage, frequency and phase differences for each generator due to a reference signals, and control the governor of the generators to much the acceptable limits. Due to the fastness and error detection techniques of CAN protocol, the probability of false synchronization decision is minimized which is the main contribution of the thesis, therefore, the reliability of the synchronization is improved. The developed automatic synchronization unit is fast, cost effective, reliable and precise to be used for monitoring, measuring and parallel operations of the synchronous generators.
