A world-renowned expert on excitation will soon grace Manila.
Electrical engineer Douglas Cope of the Excitation and Engineering Services Ltd will visit the Philippines next week for the 2nd Excitation and Control Systems for Power Generation training program.
Cope – who worked for the energy industry for almost 13 years – is set to train delegates from the energy industry on the operation of excitation control system, including the various systems offered by manufacturers in the power market. The excitation system including automatic voltage regulator (AVR) is an essential part of the electrical control and protection system for the generator. It ensures the correct terminal voltage at the generator output for all load conditions along with providing additional control and protection features when the generator is running near its limit conditions (electrical, thermal and stability).
The two-day training course will be on November 6 to 7, 2017 at The Lighthouse, Lopez Building at the Meralco compound in Ortigas.
Before working for the Excitation and Engineering Services Ltd., Cope worked for RWE nPower as the lead excitation engineer. He handles the excitation systems of the company’s entire United Kingdom fleet and other third-party utility companies.
He also worked as a senior design engineer at the Alstom Electrical Machines where he designed and commissioned excitation control systems for different power generation plants from 1 megawatt (MW) to 1, 2000 MW worldwide.
