Guam - The Guam Power Authority has begun a major capital improvement project to upgrade reaction of its baseload generators to unscheduled, forced outages that cause disruption of power services. The utility agency says the work will involve generator testing and tuning beginning this Tuesday and ending on February 16.
The project is to model the reponse of the generation units and subsequently tune generator controls to react better during times of power system disturbances. The primary goal is to reduce the amount of power outages caused by under-frequency loadshedding.
