TEAMER Description SNMREC’s OCPGS is a dynamometer facility constructed to test various aspects of marine energy generation including prototype generator performance, power takeoff controllers, machine health monitoring solutions, grid integration, and energy storage. The system is designed to emulate rotor forcing by actual ADCP measurements from the Florida Current. This feature can be customized with customer field data sets and rotor parameters. Additionally, a reconfigurable prognostic monitoring suite is available to evaluate drive train health and performance. Customer provided DAQ/monitoring systems are also welcome. The OCPGS houses two dynamometers, with power ratings of 3 kW and 20 kW. The ocean current turbine motor-generator is a 30 HP (22.4 kW) Sumitomo Cyclo 6000 AC Induction Motor (Frame 180 MG, Type TK-F) with rated nameplate values of 230 VAC, 3-Phase, 4-Pole, 60 Hz., 1740 RPM and 74.7 Amps. The variable frequency drive is a 30 HP US Drives Phoenix Vector EX AC Drive (Model # E2-0030), and the torque meter is a 7,000 kW S. Himmelstein & Co. MCRT 48007P Non-Contact Horsepower/kW-h meter. Capabilities include: General component testing, Generator testing, Microgrid testing, PTO testing.
