Capability Curve 3512C

04/06/2017 3:11 PM

Dear Enginners, good morning

I'm triyiing to create a Capability curve for a 3512C (1365KW) in order to model in ETAP, Some have a document with this? or maybe could explain me how to do it?

Best Regards

Sergio

In order to draw the capability curve you need the following data:

frequency 60 Hz; rated active power=1365 kW; rated apparent power=1950 kVA

power factor=0.7; rated voltage[Vp]=600 V; excitation maximum ratio Efmax/Efrated=1.5; synchronous reactance [xd%]=220.

Some of these you may find in here:

http://www.allnesales.com/oilriggenerators2.pdf

Efmax/Efrated and xd% are appreciated.

The curve actually represents voltages [Vp,E,Ia*Xs] but could be translated in power[where it is required] if you multiply by Vp and divide by Xs.

Xs=Vp^2/S*xd%/100 ohm [Vp=0.6 kV; S=1.95 MVA]

Ef=sqrt(3)*(Vp/sqrt(3)+Ia*Xs*sin(f)+j*Ia*Xs*cos(f)) Complex numbers.

You may start by Pmax=1365 kW [GP=Pmax/Vp*Xs] up the point c where it intersects circle of radius OB=Smax/Vp*Xs and the center in O.

This circle intersects the second circle of radius GH=Efmax and the c
