I am looking to measure 5 anologue channels simultaneously along with up to 3 digital inputs. On the analogue side I will be measuring...
The digital signals will indicate when load is applied and when starter contactors are energised.
All of the above need to be measured simultaneously to record the relationship between responses on a set timeline.
All analogue inputs can be either 4-20mA or 0-5v and will be derived from a series of transducers that will reduce Voltage from 415V and current in any range up to circa 2000A.
I want to record the transient response of a diesel generating set when a step load is applied. This could be either direct on line or star delta depending on the application or customers needs.
The power generation equipment will be running at 50Hz (1500rpm). To measure transient response I will need a reasonable resolution on the transient response, an event that is typically 1 ms in duration though may normalise over a period of up to 5 seconds. I would want to record the sequence over a 30 second period or for the duration of the test if the information can be continuously recorded and stored without overwriting.
I would appreciate any assitance you can give. Thanks.
