Generator Retrofits – Control Panel and Fuel Tank Upgrades

generator control unit
We can upgrade the generator control panel and perform generator fuel tank installation with new, digital fuel tank monitors.
Power Systems Plus Inc. provides comprehensive generator retrofitting and repair for all types of generators. We design and install various types of customized generator packages tailored to your specific needs. From engines and generator ends, to custom control systems, we can provide you what you need to stay online.

Retrofit projects often provide opportunities for improving the operation and safety of the original machine design. Out dated systems can compromise machine performance, reliability, efficiency and maintainability.  Work will not proceed without a thorough examination of the possible opportunities to improve generator performance and efficiency.

We also provide new housings and custom painting to improve  your generator appearance, weatherability and provide sound reduction.


Retrofit Options

Deep Sea Digital Control Systems Upgrade

Power Systems Plus, Inc. can update the generator control unit on any brand or age of generator with the latest technology. Newer, more user friendly control systems allow for better operation, protection, and communication with your generator. 

Benefits of retrofitting your generator control system

  • More options for alarms and adjustable parameters.
  • Less expensive, more universal components.
  • More affordable than replacing with the original equipment (in most cases).
  • Better protection of engine and stator.
  • Integrates with digital fuel level indicator and/or fuel polishing system.
  • Communicates with remote annunciator or remote monitoring systems.
  • Easy to use generator control panel


     

Digital Fuel Level Indicator Upgrade

Generator Fuel Tank Installation
Two generators retrofitted for the State of Oregon including: new control systems, new enclosures, new fuel tanks and more.
Most generator fuel tanks are equipped with only a manual fuel level gauge. Power Systems Plus has developed a digital fuel level indicator system that ties into your generator control panel and remote annunciator panel (when compatible). You can see your fuel level from the control panel and set an alarm to tell you when your fuel is low. This option works with many generator brands and is fully compatible with Power Systems Plus control panel retrofit.

Benefits of a Digital Fuel Monitor

  • This system eliminates tanks running out of fuel, or being overfilled.
  • You will no longer rely on your maintenance personnel to read the manual fuel gauge and communicate the level to you.
  • When you record the data, you can see the usage over time and monitor for anomalies.
  • This tool can be used to validate your fuel providers billing.
  • This inexpensive solution can save you time and money and give you peace of mind that your fuel tank is ready to supply your generator in case of an emergency. We can quickly and easily upgrade your generator fuel tank installation.

    Shouldn’t your generator be as modern as the rest of your facility?

diesel generator maintenance 6 Jun

Generator Service

diesel generator maintenance
We provide generator service in Oregon. This includes diesel generator maintenance, emergency generator maintenance, and routine generator service contracts.

The best way to ensure that your emergency power system will be available when you need it is regular diesel generator maintenance. Like any engine, if it sits too long problems can develop. All components need to be functioning properly in order to ensure the generator will start and power will transfer in the event of a power outage. The costs of emergency generator maintenance are minimal compared to the costs of losing power. Whether its loss of data, loss of orders, or loss of food in freezers, downtime costs money.

Power Systems Plus offers all the services you need to make sure your emergency system is ready. Often these services are required to be in compliance with Building and Fire Code Standards (NFPA 110). We recommend at minimum our Annual Service be performed once per year.

 

Generator Service Contract

Whether you are responsible for 1 generator or a fleet of 30, we can provide a comprehensive maintenance plan for annual services.  Depending on the needs for your site and the criticality of your operation we can create a plan to work for you. Our best 1 year preventative maintenance program consists of:

    • Annual Service
    • Semi-annual Service
    • 1 hour Load Test, annually
    • Engine Fluid Sample Analysis
    • Transfer Switch Service
    • Power Failure Simulation Test, annually
    • UPS Service, annually, if applicable
    • Thermographic Scan

Generator Thermal Camera 8 Jul

Generator & Electronics Thermographic Scanning

Thermographic imaging is a newer addition to the preventative maintenance arsenal. Thermographic cameras take photos of electronic components in the infrared spectrum. These pictures are basically the heat signature of the subject. Breakers and contactors put out a certain amount of heat when they are energized. As they begin to fail the resistance in the component increases and that causes the component to heat up more than normal. Items that show a higher than normal heat signature in the thermographic photos are beginning to fail. These higher heat signatures cannot be seen with the naked eye. Other tests would involve removing the breaker form the system and megger testing it. That would be a very time consuming and costly project for preventative maintenance. The thermographic scan makes it easy to see possible problem areas so only those areas need further testing or attention.

Contact us for a quote on your system.

UPS Battery Tester 8 Jul

UPS Battery System Testing

UPS Battery Tester
We use a UPS battery tester and load testing equipment to diagnose the health of your uninterruptible power supply.

Many emergency power systems have integrated uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery backup to bridge the gap between when the power fails and when the generator starts and transfers the power. The UPS supplies an uninterrupted source of power. UPS systems need regular maintenance to ensure they are ready to handle the load. We provide uninterruptible power supply service including a UPS battery tester and load testing. We provide maintenance services for USP systems.

Our service consists of:

  • Testing the integrity of each battery cell
  • Checking all wiring connections
  • Testing the input and output voltage and current
  • Verifying proper operation of the system

These tests can detect weak components and prevent a failure that could cause an outage.

Contact us for a quote on your system.

Power Failure Simulation Test 8 Jul

Power Failure Simulation Test

Power Failure Simulation Test
A power failure simulation test simulated a power failure and ensures that your entire backup power system is operating flawlessly.
This test puts all your planning and projecting to work. This type of test is often performed after hours for the least impact on regularly scheduled work. The power will go out for a short period of time.

After everyone has been informed and is ready to begin the test, we start by tripping the breakers that feed into your Automatic Transfer Switch. The power will be out for approximately 10 seconds while the generator starts, stabilizes and the ATS initiates the transfer of power from utility lines to the generator. If you have a battery UPS system in place, the UPS should take up the power load immediately so you see no power failure. After the ATS makes the transfer to the generator we verify the loads are equal on all legs of power. Also if you really want to test your system, we recommend that you turn on all equipment that is powered by the generator at this time to verify the generator can handle the load. We will then restore the utility to the breakers and verify that the ATS sees that utility is available and transfers the load back to utility. The generator should then go through a cool down cycle and shut itself off after about 10 minutes.

If any problems arise we will know about it and be able to make adjustments on site.
