easYgen-3000 Series

Paralleling Genset Controllers for Diverse Applications

Woodward’s easYgen-3000™ Series paralleling genset controllers provide exceptional versatility and value for OEM switchgear builders, generator packagers, and system integrators. The easYgen-3000 combines complete engine-generator control and protection with advanced, peer-to-peer paralleling functionality and innovative features in a robust, attractive and user-friendly package. Its integrated LogicsManager™ programmable logic functionality provides outstanding application flexibility and can often eliminate the need for additional PLC control, yet can easily integrate with SCADA or PLC-based control systems where desired.

The easYgen-3000 gives you the advantage of standardizing on a single, affordable genset controller for many different distributed power generation applications–from stand-alone emergency backup power to parallel load sharing of up to 32 gensets in complex, segmented distribution systems with multiple utility feeds and tie breakers.

Common easYgen 3000 applications: 

  • Emergency standby: data centers, hospitals, commercial and industrial facilities
  • Distributed Generation (DG): utility-dispatchable power for peak demand response
  • Islanded prime-power: oil & gas exploration, marine, remote villages, rental/mobile
  • Microgrid: military, government, net-zero communities, universities
  • Utility paralleling: peak shaving, demand curtailment
  • Cogeneration (CHP): wastewater treatment, biogas production/containment
  • Switchgear upgrades: generator control retrofit to add load sharing/paralleling capability


easYgen 3000 Features & Benefits

All easYgen-3000 Series models include these standard features:

  • True RMS voltage and current sensing (gen, bus and mains) for reduced susceptibility to harmonics
  • CAN network communication/control to engine ECU (standard SAE-J1939 protocol and several proprietary engine OEM protocols are supported)
  • Serial Modbus RTU (slave) communication for SCADA annunciation and external control
  • Configuration via PC/laptop with Woodward ToolKit service tool
  • Connectivity with the RP-3000 Remote Panel for complete annunciation, control and configuration of the easYgen-3000 controller, over CANopen protocol at up to 250m distance
  • Compliance agency/marine* approvals: CE, UL/cUL, CSA, GOST-R, ABS, Lloyd’s Register
    (* see marine package for further approvals)


The easYgen-3000 Series provide:

  • AMF (automatic mains failure) detection, decoupling and emergency run with dead bus close
  • Automatic synchronization: phase-match, positive/negative slip-frequency, run-up (dead field) paralleling
  • Circuit breaker close/open control: GCB only, GCB and MCB (ATS function), or external (no) control
  • Proportional load sharing (isochronous or droop) of up to 32 gensets, regardless of individual size
  • Base loading, import/export control, asymmetrical loading (through external base load input)
  • Automatic load dependent start/stop for improved generation system efficiency
  • Asynchronous (induction) generator control
  • Engine and generator protection functions, with fully programmable settings


easYgen 3000 Mounting Styles

The easYgen-3000 Series is available in two mounting styles:

  • The door mounted easYgen-3200 and easYgen-3500 models have sealed soft keys and a large, easy-to-read backlit color LCD, with a graphical display and text that can quickly change between 14 different supported languages.
  • The back panel mounted easYgen-3100 and easYgen-3400 models are encased in a rugged aluminum chassis for use in harsh environments or confined spaces. Back panel mounting decreases wiring to the door, and may eliminate the need for voltage transformers to keep dangerous voltage away from the panel.
