The EGCP-2 is a complete microprocessor-based engine- generator control and management package. It is designed for use with an automatic voltage regulator and a speed control to automate and protect diesel or gas engine based generator sets.

Designed for up to 30 000 kW generator sets, the EGCP-2 can be configured to operate stand- alone or utility paralleled.

A network of EGCP-2 controls is capable of controlling up to eight un-manned generator sets for base-load, peak shaving or backup power generation.


The control’s functions include:
Engine Control

  • Engine Pre-glow Control
  • Fuel Solenoid Control
  • Engine Starter Control
  • kVA Controlled Cool-down Timer
  • Oil Pressure Monitoring
  • Water Temperature Monitoring
  • Battery Voltage Monitoring
  • Speed Monitoring with Overspeed Protection


  • Digital signal processing to eliminate harmonic issues
  • Adjustable phase window, voltage window, and dwell times
  • Safe dead bus closing logic internal to the control
  • Synchronization across generator and mains breakers
  • Multiple shot re-closing with adjustable time delays
  • Manual voltage and speed adjusts for manual synchronizing

Real kW Load Control

  • True RMS power calculations
  • Load Bias Signal to engine speed control, configurable for ±3 Vdc, 0–5 Vdc, or 500 Hz PWM
  • Configurable load/unload ramp rates
  • Isochronous load-sharing of up to 8 units using percentage-based load sharing
  • Base load control for optimum fuel efficiency
  • Import/Export control using a watt transducer
  • Soft Utility Transfer Function
  • Externally adjustable Base Load or Process Reference levels with independent ramp rates
  • kW droop provided for manual load control

Reactive kVAR Control

  • PF sharing on isolated bus
  • Voltage Trim feature for single generator operation
  • Voltage Bias signal to AVR configurable for ±1, ±3, or ±9 Vdc
  • Power Factor or VAR control when base loaded
  • Externally adjustable VAR or PF setpoint levels

Automatic Generator Sequencing

  • Automatically starts and stops gen-sets based on system load demand
  • Configurable system load demand start/stop levels and timers
  • On-line engine priority sequence configurability from any EGCP-2 or a PLC to equalize run-time

Engine Protective Features

  • High/Low Coolant Temperature
  • High/Low Oil Pressure
  • Overspeed
  • Battery Voltage
  • Start Failure

Generator Protective Features

  • Over/Under Voltage
  • Over/Under Frequency

  • Reverse VARs
  • Overcurrent (Inverse time delay)
  • Loss of Utility Power detection
  • Speed/Frequency Mismatch
  • Load Surge


  • Modbus ® * or DDE communications via RS-422 based serial port
  • EGCP-2 Control View HMI for PC
  • RS-485 EGCP-to-EGCP load-sharing communications network
  • EGCP-2 Configuration file Upload/Download capability through a PC interface program
