K. R. Harrington Water Treatment Plant
Standby Power System
Nashville, TN

This project consisted of a generating system to provide standby power to the K. R. Harrington Water Treatment Plant, Nashville, Tennessee. The equipment included generators and synchronizing switchgear. More specifically, the system consisted of four 1,750 KW standby generators generating at 4,160 volts. The governors of all units were coupled to assure real power load sharing, and the voltage regulators of all units were coupled to assure reactive power load sharing.

Switchgear consisted of synchronizing breakers for paralleling with the utility and with each other and an overall main breaker to energize loads, using the generators to start the facility as a combined system.

This project was designed on a fast-track basis. This project began in July 1999 and is unique in that it was required to be commissioned and operational prior to midnight, December 31, 1999, for Y2K compliancy.
