Generator AVRs (automatic voltage regulator) are a technical component that is used in generators of all sizes whether commercial or industrial. The core purpose of a generator AVR is for the purpose of automatic regulation of voltage, essentially it will turn voltage levels that are fluctuating into constant voltage levels. Generator AVRs work by stabilizing the voltage output of generators at varying loads, but will also divide the reactive load between generators that are running in parallel (voltage droop), and greatly assist the response of the generator to overloads. In laymen’s terms, a generator avr (automatic voltage regulator) will continuously take input variable voltage ranges and maintain a constant output at a determined and fixed voltage.
Why are Generator AVRs (Automatic Voltage Regulators) so crucial for commercial and industrial generators?
There are certain scenarios that cause a generator to be unregulated if they don’t have an automatic voltage regulator. This happens when the generator is not able to adequately meet the requirements and power needs for all devices and every piece of equipment that is connected to the generator. This occurs because unregulated generators are not able to properly regulate and control the voltage. This causes the terminal voltage to continually decrease all while the load requirements continually increase. Overall generator voltage should be constant at a fixed rate, a common problem with unregulated generators is fluctuations in voltage. This causes generator performance to decline to unacceptable levels and negatively impact and peripheral equipment, machinery, utilities that are connected to any unregulated commercial or industrial generator.
A generator AVR (automatic voltage regulator) directly relates to the longevity and performance of your generator plus any of the items that will be connected and are receiving power. It’s crucial to ensure that the voltage output being delivered consistently in its load current even if minor fluctuations occur in the background. Fluctuations in voltage are controlled by the automatic voltage regular and protect equipment, devices, machines, and any appliances from damage.
What are the core functions of an Automated Voltage Regulator?
The single most significant function of generator avr is to automatically regulate and control generator voltage all while keeping the voltage output constant at the ideal voltage range generator regardless of the current being drawn by the load.
Another core advantage of an avr is the adjustment of voltages to safer levels along with providing surge protection, electricity surges, generator overloads, and spikes. Shorting and shortages are responded to instantaneously to handle overloads appropriately by dividing the reactive load between generators that run in parallel.
