Excitation System Upgrades

Since 1986, Basler Services, LLC has provided a complete solution for excitation system equipment. Whether the client requires an upgrade of an existing system, or an entirely new system. Our engineering and installation experts have upgraded analog systems to new, digital controls on more than 150 systems, from diesel units to steam, hydro and combustion turbine units.

Our engineering experts have direct experience working for the major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and specific hands-on experience with the upfront system design and system startup on most of the original static excitation systems installed in the 1960s-1990s. Some of these systems include the GE Frame 5/6/7/9, the Westinghouse W251/W501 and the GE LM2500/LM5000 units.

We provide static excitation system upgrades on any type of generating system, including the following systems: (some of which are no longer supported by the OEMs)

Basler Services can install a digital static excitation system prepackaged in a NEMA 1 enclosure. We can also install a "shipped-loose" system in an existing enclosure or generator control panel, using the existing cables connected to the terminal boards. This shortens downtime as well as cuts project costs.

Our expertise with excitation system upgrades and retrofits allows us to select the most appropriate existing technology and equipment to meet our client's needs.

Basler Services provides a full, turnkey solution or a customized package of services based on project requirements, including interfacing with new or existing Automation Control System and DCS systems using open communication architectures, such as Modbus®. Basler Services provides custom human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and programming to seamlessly integrate into our client's existing operating environments.
