Advanced genset controller
AGC 200 controller -Description
DEIF Advanced Genset Controller, AGC 200, meets and surpasses OEM needs for synchronisation. The AGC 200 is a costeffective, compact, scalable and all-in-one product - the AGC 200 comes in several variants.
The advanced controller series, AGC 200, integrates all necessary functions for genset protection and control, stands out for its reliability and operator-friendliness, and features patent-pending DEIF Emulation to speed up design, testing and commissioning, saving man hours and costs.
Applying asymmetric load sharing to ensure optimal load on the genset, the AGC 200 also cuts operating costs and reduces harmful emissions. With temperaturedependent cooling, the AGC 200 arrests cooling at pre-programmed cool-down temperatures and features automatic priority selection, setting the optimum combination of gensets for optimised fuel consumption.
AGC 200: Critical power applications
With its integrated load and power management functionality, the AGC 200 secures backup power availability when you need it. An ideal solution for critical power applications, such as data centres, hospitals, airports and fish farms.
AGC 200: Rental genset applications
Rental companies will benefit from the standardised user interfaces of all DEIF controllers. The controllers have been designed with ease of operation in view and rental companies can easily set and lock parameters to ensure full protection of their equipment.
AGC 200: Hybrid applications
AGC 200 is plug’n’play compatible with DEIF’s ASC-4 hybrid controller for easy integration of diesel genset applications into a variety of hybrid installations. The market-leading solution maximises sustainable power penetration while always securing a sufficient amount of spinnning reserve in case PV production drops.
AGC 200: Available standard modes:
Island mode: Power plant with synchronising generators or a stand-alone generator. Also applicable in critical power plants.
Automatic Mains Failure: Critical power/emergency standby plants, black start generator.
Fixed power: Power plant with fixed kW set point (including building load).
Peak shaving: Power plant where generator supplies peak load demand paralleled to the mains.
Load takeover: Plant mode where the load is moved from mains to generator, for example peak demand periods or periods with risk of power outages.
Mains power export: Power plant with fixed kW set point (excluding building load).
All modes are configurable, and it is possible to change the plant mode on the fly both in single and in power management applications.
