Function: Control SPM D1010B/YB Synchronizer module
Country of Manufacture: United States (USA)
5448-906 is a Control SPM-D10 developed by Woodward. The SPM-D10 is a microprocessor-based synchronizer specifically designed for three-phase AC generators. It is compatible with Woodward speed controls and automatic voltage regulators, as well as other compatible systems. The primary purpose of the SPM-D10 synchronizer is to facilitate the automatic matching of frequency, phase, and voltage during the synchronization process. When synchronizing generators, it is crucial to ensure that the incoming generator is properly synchronized with the grid or other connected generators. The SPM-D10 synchronizer employs advanced technology and algorithms to automatically adjust the generator's frequency, phase, and voltage to match the desired parameters. This ensures smooth and seamless synchronization, minimizing the risk of voltage or frequency disturbances.
- The SPM-D10 synchronizer offers the flexibility of utilizing either analog or discrete output bias signals for frequency, phase, and voltage matching. Analog output bias signals provide a continuous range of adjustments, while discrete output bias signals allow for incremental adjustments. This flexibility allows the synchronizer to adapt to different control systems and generator configurations.
- As a microprocessor-based device, the SPM-D10 synchronizer benefits from the computational power and intelligence of a dedicated processor. It can perform complex calculations and monitoring functions in real-time, ensuring accurate and precise synchronization. The microprocessor also enables the synchronizer to incorporate advanced features such as fault detection, diagnostics, and self-adjustment capabilities.
- By using the SPM-D10 synchronizer, operators can automate and streamline the synchronization process, reducing the risk of human error and enhancing overall system reliability. The synchronizer continuously monitors and adjusts the generator's output to maintain optimal synchronization, even in dynamic conditions or during load changes.
- SPM ensuries accurate synchronization of multiple power sources, such as generators or other power generation equipment. It facilitates the coordination of these sources, enabling them to operate in harmony and provide a stable and reliable power supply.
- The module incorporates advanced algorithms and control logic to accurately detect and adjust the voltage, frequency, and phase relationships of multiple power sources. It ensures proper synchronization and avoids potential issues such as phase mismatches or voltage imbalances. This component include a user-friendly interface, allowing operators or engineers to monitor and configure the synchronization parameters according to specific requirements. It provides real-time information and feedback on the status of the power sources and synchronization process, enabling efficient monitoring and control.
- MicroNet TMR systems are designed to operate at 3-2-0. As a result, in order to start a system, at least two CPUs must be started with the same application. If the CPUs are started individually, the first CPU will wait indefinitely for the second CPU, and the second and third CPUs will wait up to ten seconds for the third CPU. If the third CPU does not join the two within 10 seconds, the two CPUs will continue with only two.
- To synchronize, CPUs that start at the same time must use the same application and have the same EE values (stored tunables). If two CPUs are synchronized, a third CPU must run the same application as the first two, but it will copy EE values from the running CPUs. The TMR5200 and Remote RTN modules can be inserted and removed live in a MicroNet TMR or Plus chassis. Before removing these modules from the chassis, they must be reset. This informs the module that it will be removed and, if available, provides a graceful CPU shutdown or failover to another healthy Remote RTN module.
- Circuit Breaker Synchronization: One of the standout features is its capability for circuit breaker synchronization. This functionality streamlines synchronization processes, contributing to the efficient operation of power systems by ensuring that circuit breakers are harmonized effectively.
- Voltage Matching and Synchronization Options: The module provides options for voltage matching through either phase matching or slip frequency synchronization. These alternatives offer flexibility in how voltage synchronization is achieved, catering to different system configurations and preferences.
- Speed and Voltage Bias Signal Outputs: With its speed and voltage bias signal outputs, the module is equipped to provide essential signals that aid in maintaining optimal performance and stability within power systems.
- Tailored Mains Protection Versions: The module offers specialized versions of mains protection, addressing the unique requirements of specific applications. This customization ensures that the protection measures are precisely aligned with the demands of each scenario.
- Flexible Operating Mode Selection: Discrete inputs enable operators to select the preferred operating mode. This user-friendly feature facilitates easy transitions between different operational states.
- Enhanced Display and Visualization: Equipped with a two-line liquid crystal text display, the module provides a clear interface for operation, alarm indication, and the visualization of measurement values. This visual feedback empowers operators to make informed decisions and quickly identify any potential issues.
- Synchronoscope with LEDs: The presence of a synchronoscope with LEDs enhances visual monitoring and assessment of synchronization status, contributing to smooth and precise synchronization processes.
- Multiple Power Supply Options: The module offers a variety of power supply options, catering to diverse power infrastructure requirements. This adaptability ensures seamless integration into different systems.
- Configurability for User Convenience: Both PC and front panel configurability options are available, enabling users to tailor the module's settings to their specific needs and preferences. This customization enhances ease of use and aligns the module's performance with operational requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is 5448-906?
It is a Field Terminal Module developed by Woodward.
What is the minimum number of CPUs required to start a MicroNet TMR system?
To start a MicroNet TMR system, at least two CPUs must be started with the same application. This configuration ensures the system operates in a 3-2-0 setup, which provides redundancy and fault tolerance.
What happens if the CPUs are started individually?
If the CPUs are started individually, the first CPU will wait indefinitely for the second CPU to join. Similarly, the second and third CPUs will wait for the third CPU to join for up to ten seconds. If the third CPU does not join within this time frame, the two CPUs will continue operating as a pair without the third CPU.
What is required for synchronization between CPUs that start at the same time?
CPUs that start at the same time must use the same application and have the same EE values (stored tunables) for proper synchronization. This ensures consistent behavior and functionality across all synchronized CPUs.
