The LSA 47.3 alternator features a SHUNT excitation system with a R250 regulator as standard. An AREP auxiliary winding excitation system with D350 digital regulator version is also available to improve transient performances and provide high overload capacities. A D550 digital regulator can also be used for grid connected applications. A Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG) excitation system is also available as an option.
The LSA 47.3 is fully interchangeable with the LSA 47.2 (shaft height and feet configuration), and can therefore be coupled with all diesel engines on the market for this power range. It is now available for orders. The LSA 47.3 offers the following power nodes:
– 410, 455, 500, 550, 600, 660 kVA at 50Hz
– 510, 570, 625, 690, 750, 825 kVA at 60Hz
This alternator is optimized for prime and demanding applications such as marine and cogeneration. It offers an efficiency of up to 95.7% at cos φ 0.8, which ranks it among the best in the category.
"The LSA 47.3 is an important step forward in our strategy to optimize our product range" said Wenbin Ding, low voltage range product manager "The benefits of this new product are significative, with real improvements where it matters most: efficiency, power and starting kVA. In addition, the optimized cooling system we implemented means that hot spots are reduced inside the machine. Ultimately this means a better reliability and longer lifetime, which is essential for the applications all LSA alternators are built to support.”
With the LSA 47.3 introduction, the LSA 47.2 will soon be retired from the market, as well as the LSA 49.3 S4 (660 kVA).
