Engine Controls

Systems designed to enable the engine to run reliably across a wide range of fuel gas and load requirements maintaining driven equipment performance and safety.

COOPER MEDIUM & HIGH-SPEED CONTROLS

Cooper offers complete OEM Supported engine & compressor control system upgrade for Superior, AJAX, Waukesha, and CAT engine applications. Systems are designed to enable the engine to run reliably across a wide range of fuel gas and load requirements maintaining driven equipment performance and safety. Cooper Control Systems support a wide array of standalone engine control as needed control over driven equipment process parameters. The systems are 100% adaptable – so that each system it can be fine-tuned to customer and site-specific requirements. By utilizing industry standard and proven technology the system can be easily supported by the end-user customer as well maintain forward compatibility to future controls system advancements. There are no Cooper special monthly or annual software or licensing fee to access and make changes once the system is programmed. All tuning capabilities are available via the System HMI. Access to parameters is password protected with various administration levels that can be determined by the customer. The control system comes with a NEMA 4 (CSA Class 1 Division. 2) certification for environment and hazardous area compliance.

Cooper uses stand-alone engine control products to ensure the end-user has the ability to manage the complete engine performance control, as well as the driven equipment process.

Engine Control Functions

  • Governor – Electronic Engine Speed Control
  • Air:Fuel Ratio – Engine performance control to emission regulations or specific requirements based on fuel gas and or environmental requirements.
  • Turbocharger Bypass or Waste Gate Control – Integral part to the air-fuel ratio control as needed.
  • Dynamic Thermostat Control – I/P temperature water control devices available to maintain a precise intake manifold air temperature in varying climate conditions. An additional part of the air-fuel ratio control.
  • Engine Electronic Ignition – Maintains precise crankshaft referenced ignition timing.
  • Engine Detonation Monitoring and Control – Cycle-to-cycle engine combustion condition monitoring.
  • Control System – Engine Start / Stop / Safety protection and or complete package/process control.
    - Pre/post lube engine and driven equipment
    - All temperature/pressure engine and driven equipment
    - Vibration Monitoring
    - Start/warm-up and loading control
    - Safety shut-down control

ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM UPGRADES

Stand-alone engine control products provide the ability to manage the complete engine performance control.

  • Cooper uses stand-alone engine control products to ensure the end-user has the ability to manage the complete engine performance control, as well as the driven equipment process. ​
  • The system is equipped with a graphic touch screen HMI for operator interface of all system control components as well as remote communications functions.​
  • The engine air:fuel ratio control products are standalone, individually harnessed components. They are the industry standard and proven for ease of maintenance, trouble shooting and replacement, when necessary.
  • The engine ignition, governor and detonation systems, are standalone modules individually harnessed with complete data and communications via the unit HMI.​
  • Engine critical I/O points are monitored, displayed, and configured via the unit HMI. Each I/O point is individually harnessed to a junction box or directly to the main control cabinet for easy identification, troubleshooting, and servicing.​
  • The engine controller has full authority for engine start, stop, and safety shutdown functions for the complete package.​
  • The engine controller can be easily connected to and communicated with existing driven equipment control or SCDA systems, as necessary. However, a thorough review of the existing unit control system is necessary to determine the level of integration possible.
  • Data logging and trending of 100% of the control system I/O and parameters. ​
