G539 – (GE) EX2100 Voltage Regulator

5 days - 35 PDH Credits Awarded



Excitation System reliability and availability can be a matter of skilled routine maintenance activity and proficient troubleshooting capability. Proficient troubleshooting is greatly aided by a solid operational understanding of the excitation system and its voltage regulator. This course gives technicians and engineers the necessary knowledge to maintain, repair and calibrate an Excitation System with the EX2100 Voltage Regulator:
  1. Using effective routine maintenance practices.
  2. Knowing what checks may be performed on-line and how to perform these checks without causing an equipment shutdown.
  3. Understanding the use of OEM provided toolbox software.
  4. Increasing the likelihood of accurate problem diagnosis by thoroughly understanding how the equipment operates.
  5. Increasing the likelihood of accurate problem diagnosis by understanding any given circuit's impact upon operations; i.e., quickly linking the symptom(s) to the faulty circuit.
  6. Verifying suspected faulty circuit by analyzing voltage levels and/or signal traces.
  7. Understanding the necessary calibrations, after the faulty part has been replaced, including how the calibrations are performed.
This course is intended for electrical technicians and engineers.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  1. Identify the major components associated with the EX2100 excitation system.
  2. Determine the function of each component
  3. Introduce the Control Systems Toolbox for the EX2100.
  4. Understand the types of troubleshooting that maybe required for the EX2100.
  5. Discuss where to get help during troubleshooting.
  6. Discuss the major excitation system components, including limit and protective features.
  7. Describe how the EX2100 interfaces with the Turbine Control
  8. Describe how the EX2100 protects the generator.
  9. Demonstrate familiarity with the startup and operation of the EX2100.
  10. Demonstrate knowledge regarding the use of the Control System Toolbox for online and offline troubleshooting and maintenance
