VOLTAGE ADJUST RHEOSTAT An internal screwdriver control provides adjustment of generator output voltage. Adjustment clockwise increases voltage. The voltage regulator is shipped from the factory with a jumper wire connected to terminals 6 and 7. If a remote adjust rheostat is used, the jumper wire should be removed and the rheostat connected across the terminals. A 1 kohm, 1/2 watt resistance will provide adequate voltage adjust range for most applications. See Interconnection Diagram. V/HZ "CORNER FREQUENCY" SELECTION AND ADJUSTMENT For 60 Hz systems, the regulator is preset at the factory for a 55 Hz "corner frequency". For 50 Hz systems, a 45 Hz "corner frequency" is achieved by connecting the jumper wire from the 60 Hz terminal to the 50 Hz terminal.

The AVC63-4 Voltage Regulator is designed for use on 50/60 Hz brushless generators. The regulator includes frequency compensation, overexcitation shutdown, a solid-state build-up circuit, and EMI filtering. ELECTRICAL SPECIFICATIONS Dc Output Power: 4 Adc at 63 Vdc (252W) maximum continuous, 7 Adc at 100 Vdc (700W) forcing one minute (at 240 Vac input). 9 Adc at 134 Vdc (1206W) forcing for 10 seconds (at 153 Vac input). Exciter Field Dc Resistance: 15 ohms, minimum; 100 ohms maximum. Ac Power Input: Operating range: 190 Vac to 240 Vac, Single phase, 50/60 Hz 10%, Burden: 500 VA. Sensing Input: 190-240 Vac, single phase, 50/60 Hz 10%, common with Ac Power Input. Voltage Adjust Range: 171-264 Vac. Regulation Accuracy: Better than 1.0% no load to full load. Response Time: Less than 1.5 cycles for 5% change in sensing voltage. EMI Suppression: Internal electromagnetic (EMI filter). interference filter

Overexcitation Shutdown: Field voltage shuts down after time delay if exciter field voltage exceeds 100 Vdc, 5% (See Overexcitation Shutdown for inverse time delay curve and description). Voltage Build-up: Internal provisions for automatic voltage buildup from generator residual voltages as low as 6 Vac. Power Dissipation: 8 Watts maximum. PHYSICAL SPECIFICATIONS Operating Temperature: -40 C (-40 F) to +60 C (+140 F). Storage Temperature: -65 C (-85 F) to +85 C (+185 F). Vibration: Withstands 1.3 Gs at 2 to 27 Hz; 0.036" double amplitude at 27 to 52 Hz; and 5 Gs at 52 to 1000 Hz. Shock: Withstands up to 20 Gs in each of three mutually perpendicular axes. Weight:

OVEREXCITATION SHUTDOWN Overexcitation shutdown is included that removes the output power if the exciter field voltage exceeds 100 Vdc. If exciter field voltage exceeds 100 Vdc 5%, the regulator automatically removes field current, after a time delay. The time delay is inversely proportional to the magnitude of the detected overvoltage condition up to the 135 Vdc point. Beyond 140 Vdc, the field voltage is removed after approximately 0.2 seconds. Refer to the following figure.

a) If the remote voltage adjust rheostat is not to be connected, ensure terminals 6 and 7 are shorted with a jumper. b) If a 55 Hz "corner frequency" for 60 Hz systems is desired, ensure that the Hz wire is connected to the 60 Hz terminal. If a 45 Hz "corner frequency" for 50 Hz systems is desired, ensure that the Hz wire is connected to the 50 Hz. terminal. 3. Ensure the voltage regulator is correctly connected to the generator system. 4. Install the fuses per paragraph Fuses.

2. Allow approximately 3 seconds before removing the dc source. 3. With the voltage regulator input disconnected (Terminals 3 and 4), start the prime mover and measure voltage at generator terminals. If voltage is greater than 6 volts, voltage buildup should be successful. Reconnect voltage regulator. Repeat field flashing procedure if less than 6 volts residual is measured. 4. If repeating steps (1) and (2) does not result in generator voltage buildup, replace the voltage regulator. OPERATIONAL TEST 1. Connect the test setup as shown in the following figure, Operational Test. Do not apply power. Ensure that the light bulb is rated for 120 V and is less than 100 W. 2. Adjust the regulator VAR and/or remote VAR to maximum CCW. 3. Apply 240 V, 60 Hz power to the regulator. The light bulb should flash momentarily. 4. Slowly adjust the regulator VAR control CW.

Typical Time Delay Characteristic Curves

After output power is removed, the regulator can be reset by decreasing the input voltage to less than 10 Vac for a minimum of 2 seconds; this may be accomplished by stopping the prime mover or by interrupting the regulator input with a reset switch. EXCITER FIELD POWER CIRCUIT Connect regulator terminal F+ to the brushless exciter field terminal F+ and regulator terminal F- to exciter field terminal F-. CAUTION The dc resistance of the exciter field must be equal to or greater than 15 ohms and less than 100 ohms. If the exciter field dc resistance is less than 15 ohms and if the full load field current does not exceed the maximum continuous current rating of the regulator, a resistor of sufficient wattage must be added in series with the field to bring the total resistance to 15 ohms. POWER /SENSING INPUT Connect wiring as Interconnection Diagram. shown in the

5. Set the regulator VAR and external VAR (if used) as follows: Switch Regulator VAR Remote VAR SYSTEM START-UP 1. Perform preliminary set-up as described in the above paragraphs. NOTE All voltage readings are to be taken with an average reading voltmeter. 2. Start prime mover and bring up to rated speed. RESULT: Voltage should build up. perform Field Flashing. If not, Initial Setting Fully CCW Centered

3. Slowly adjust the regulator VAR CW until the generator output voltage reaches the nominal value. If used, adjust the remote VAR to set the generator voltage to the exact value desired. RESULT: Voltage should build up to rated value. If voltage does not build up to rated value, check generator for short or excessive load. If a minimal residual of 6 V is not present, perform Field Flashing. 4. Check regulator under normal operating and loading conditions. RESULT: Voltage regulation should be better than 1.0% no-load to full-load. If regulation is not within this range, perform the following steps: 1. Voltage reduction under load may be due to speed change from no load to full load, causing the frequency compensation (V/Hz) circuit to reduce voltage at lower frequencies. 2. Replace voltage regulator. FIELD FLASHING When the regulator is operated with the generator for the first time, the polarity of residual magnetism may not be correct or the magnitude not enough. If the generator does not build up after startup, shut down the prime mover and proceed with the following steps: 1. With the prime mover at rest, apply a dc source (not grounded) of not more than 12 V, to terminals "F+" (positive) and "F-" (negative) in series with a limiting resistor of 3 to 5 ohms.

Power for the exciter field and regulator circuitry is derived from the generator output or auxiliary winding. The operable power input range is 171 to 264 Vac and is connected to Terminals 3 and 4. OPERATION The following system operation procedures provide instructions for adjusting the AVC63-4 voltage regulator. Symptoms resulting from a faulty regulator and certain generator system problems are included, together with suggested remedies. Complete the following steps proceeding with the system start-up. CAUTION Meggers and high potential test equipment must not be used. Incorrect use of such equipment could damage the semiconductors contained in the regulator. PRELIMINARY SET-UP 1. Verify that the voltage regulator specifications conform with the generator system requirements. 2. Ensure that the regulator wires are as follows: before

RESULT: 1. Before minimum brilliance is reached, the light bulb should attain maximum brilliance to signify the regulating point. 2. At the regulation point, a small change in the VAR should turn the light bulb on or off.
