MTS Power Products has been providing high-quality energy product such as voltage regulators, generators, control panels, battery chargers, and much more for over 30 years. We carry state of the art gensets and professional power products from some of the best brands in the industry. We provide generator systems for both residential and commercial needs. MTS Power Products is South Florida’s go-to provider for energy product distribution. MTS can offer our clients a generator exciter that can fulfill the needs of just about any genset system. There are four types of generator exciter methods used within the power industry including:
- Permanent Magnet Generator
- Excitation Boost System
- Auxiliary Winding
MTS Power Products offers truly ingenious auxiliary generator excitation boosters. They work well for all ranges of your power generator needs from residential power residential to commercial and industrial. A generator exciter or booster works to convert the genset DC battery voltage to an AC current source in order to give the automatic voltage regulator power it can efficiently work with. This, in turn, boosts the generator system’s starting capacity by a significant amount. MTS power products offer you a generator exciter that can be easily installed and integrated into your existing energy system.
Self-excited or shunt systems require no additional parts or wiring. The main stator’s voltage output is used in the retrieval of energy that is then fed to the automatic voltage regulator. A permanent magnet generator, also known as a PMG, is one of the most commonly used and known forms of a generator exciter. The PMG uses a small fixed magnet in cohesion with the running alternator shaft; this process generates energy in the form of a three-phase waveform that is then sent to the automatic voltage regulator.
The excitation boost system or EBS is directly controlled by the automatic voltage regulator. The AVR in your generator system will regulate the changing levels of energy produced by the generator exciter depending on the real time needs of the entire system. Auxiliary winding or AUX is a generator exciter technology that is typically most practical for larger installations such as for commercial or industrial applications. Auxiliary winding uses a winding on the generator system’s stator to generate power from the main field for the automatic voltage regulator.
MTS Power Products carries the IVT-2460 & IVT-1260 produced by our personal manufacturing line McPherson Controls. Our generator exciters easily exceed normal generator motor starting capabilities while providing the load response benefits of a PMG. The are easily installed and provide high efficiency in compact sizing. Our generator excitation boosters come equipped with hibernation mode that has extremely low power consumption draws. Our auxiliary excitation boosters come equipped with battery input reverse polarity protection functionality.
