  • Method And Apparatus For Sensing Voltage In An Automatic Transfer Switch System

    view source
  • US Patent:
    7157811, Jan 2, 2007
  • Filed:
    Feb 28, 2003
  • Appl. No.:
    10/375972
  • Inventors:
    Zane C. Eaton - Plymouth WI, US
    Eric Albsmeier - Sheboygan WI, US
  • Assignee:
    Kohler Co. - Kohler WI
  • International Classification:
    H01H 35/00
  • US Classification:
    307 80, 307129
  • Abstract:
    An Automatic Transfer Switch System includes a control circuit in which high frequency transformers, designed to operate linearly in a frequency range above the operating frequency range of utility-level power, are employed for voltage sensing. An output signal from a high frequency line matching transformer is received by a microprocessor which evaluates the signal for both a voltage level and frequency and uses these values as indices to an empirically-derived look-up table which provides an actual voltage level to the microprocessor. The actual voltage value can then be evaluated by the microprocessor to determine if and when the power delivered to a load should be supplied by a first or a second power supply.
  • Auxiliary Power Unit For A Motor Vehicle

  • US Patent:
    7582978, Sep 1, 2009
  • Filed:
    Nov 17, 2006
  • Appl. No.:
    11/560919
  • Inventors:
    Galen D. Flanigan - New Holstein WI, US
    Eric D. Albsmeier - Sheboygan WI, US
  • Assignee:
    Kohler Co. - Kohler WI
  • International Classification:
    F02B 63/04
    H02K 7/18
  • US Classification:
    290 1A
  • Abstract:
    An auxiliary power unit for a motor vehicle includes an auxiliary engine with an output shaft directly connected to a generator. The generator has a field winding and three output windings. A first output winding produces 120 volts AC that is applied to standard electrical outlets in the vehicle. A second output winding produces a low AC voltage that is converted to 12 volts DC and applied to the battery of the truck, thereby charging the battery and powering the vehicle's electrical system when the primary engine of the vehicle is off. An auxiliary winding in which another AC voltage is produced that is used by a controller to excite the field winding. A novel enclosure for the auxiliary power unit also is described.
  • Method And Apparatus For Regulating Excitation Of An Alternator

  • US Patent:
    7825641, Nov 2, 2010
  • Filed:
    Mar 3, 2008
  • Appl. No.:
    12/041006
  • Inventors:
    Zane C. Eaton - Plymouth WI, US
    Doug Dorn - Sheboygan Falls WI, US
    Eric Albsmeier - Sheboygan WI, US
    Harrison Chiu - Brookfield WI, US
    Isaac Frampton - Strattanville PA, US
  • Assignee:
    Kohler Co. - Kohler WI
  • International Classification:
    F02B 63/04
    B60L 11/02
  • US Classification:
    322 29, 322 37, 290 1 A
  • Abstract:
    A hybrid voltage regulator controls the voltage of three phases of alternating electricity produced by an alternator. A digital voltage regulator produces an average of the RMS voltage for each phase and produces an error value based on a ratio of the voltage to the frequency of the alternating electricity. The RMS voltage average and the error value are used to modify a voltage command designating a desired voltage level. The modified voltage command is processed by an analog voltage regulator that rectifies the alternator output voltage which then is averaged over an period of time. The resultant average voltage value is utilized to modify the voltage command to produce a regulated voltage command that determines a level of current to apply to excite the alternator.
  • Diagnostic Method For An Engine-Generator Set

  • US Patent:
    20110172966, Jul 14, 2011
  • Filed:
    Jan 14, 2011
  • Appl. No.:
    13/007091
  • Inventors:
    Eric D. Albsmeier - Sheboygan WI, US
    Kenneth R. Bornemann - Cato WI, US
    Harrison Chirkdo Chiu - Grafton WI, US
    Zane Eaton - Plymouth WI, US

    Edward Douglas Brey - Sheboygan Falls WI, US
  • International Classification:
    G01M 15/04
  • US Classification:
    702183
  • Abstract:
    A diagnostic test is conducted by operating an engine-generator set at a plurality of reduced speeds. At each of those speeds, operating parameters of the engine are sensed and analyzed to detect an unsatisfactory operating condition. For example, such operating parameters may include speed of the engine-generator set, engine oil pressure and level, engine temperature, coolant level, and battery voltage. When a transition in engine speed occurs, a throttle test also may be conducted to measure how quickly and smoothly the engine reaches the new speed. After the engine reaches the normal operating speed, the generator is activated to produce electricity. One or more characteristic of that electricity, such as voltage, current and frequency, are sensed and evaluated to detect an unsatisfactory operating condition.
  • Resonant Commutation System For Exciting A Three-Phase Alternator

    view source
  • US Patent:
    20120153904, Jun 21, 2012
  • Filed:
    Dec 16, 2010
  • Appl. No.:
    12/969759
  • Inventors:
    Eric D. Albsmeier - Sheboygan WI, US
  • International Classification:
    H02P 9/02
  • US Classification:
    322 28
  • Abstract:
    An alternator has a field coil that produces a magnetic field which induces electricity in an coil arrangement. A field coil excitation system includes a generator with an output coil assembly for producing alternating electricity. A rectifier converts the alternating electricity into voltage and direct current at two nodes. A capacitor, between the nodes, has capacitance that forms a resonant circuit with inductance of the output coil assembly. Due to that resonant circuit, the voltage and direct current oscillate in a predefined phase relationship. A switch and the field coil are connected in series between the nodes. A controller renders the switch conductive for a time period specified by a received control signal. The switch is rendered non-conductive at the first occurrence of a minimum current level after the time period ends. The predefined phase relationship enables the minimum current level to be detected by sensing the voltage.

  • Assignee:
    Kohler Co. - Kohler WI
  • International Classification:
    G01N 27/00
  • US Classification:
    324 711
  • Abstract:
    Some embodiments relate to a method of sensing generator speed. The method includes detecting an AC waveform produced by a generator and determining a threshold voltage from the AC waveform produced by the generator. The method further includes determining generator speed by comparing the threshold voltage with the AC waveform. The generator speed may be determined by a time period between cycles of an output of the generator. Other example embodiments relate to a method that includes detecting an AC waveform produced by an alternative stator winding within the generator and measuring the period of the AC waveform to inversely determine generator speed.
