Engine Paralleling and Integration Control (EPIC)

EPIC

Overview

The EPIC control system allows for modular application of paralleling controls. EPIC Master Panel provides a graphical interface to the generator sets, optional tie breaker, and optional Utility. Flexible control options allow for a variety of analog or high-speed network control of generators, making the EPIC system is an ideal choice for generation expansion projects whre there is need to parallel new generators with existing units.

Specifications
