TPP Soma – commissioning of excitation system for generator 6

During May 2017, KONČAR – Electronics and Informatics engineers commissioned new static excitation system for the generator 6 (194 MVA) on TPP Soma in Turkey.

Excitation system of main generator is implemented in the dual-channel version with bridges in 1 + 1 configuration, which provides full redundancy of the system and excitation system of auxiliary’s generator is implemented with one regulator and one natural cooled thyristor bridge.

At the end of the year the plan is to install and commission the remaining excitation system for generator 3.
