  4. Verify no oil in generators drain liquid level switch sight glasses.
  5. Ensure units goes on turning gear
  6. Check Automatic Transfer Switch's has gone to 12KV backup power.
    NOTE: there is an 11 second time delay during ATS transfer.
If ATS hasn't transferred:
  • Verify 1APF-DS-1 and Back Up Service Main Breaker are shut
  • Open breakers to 1 APC-MCC-2412 %2411 and 2APC-MCC-1411 & 1412
  • Re-attempt to shift ATS. If shift fails again, open all breakers on 1APC-MCC-2412 & 2411and 2APC-1411 & 1412, then try again.
  • Shut breaker to 1 APC_MCC-2411& 2412

  1. Verify that air compressor CWP 0001-C.starts on standby mode
  2. Check that both battery banks are being supplied by the chargers from reliable power.
    (Note) If 12 KV back up power fails to transfer rotate STG, and GT's 180 degrees by hand every 30min, until back up power is restored and units can be placed back on turning gear
  3. “Master Reset” all GT's. Failure to do so will result in auto purge of H2 in generators. Ensure emergency seal oil pump secures.
  4. Reset and open solenoid isolation valves for H2 and CO2 in collector end.
  5. Prior to closing 230 KV breaker it may be necessary to reset the lockout relay. Switch 86BF-52L1, Verify 12KV supply is lined up through the switchyard.
