DESCRIPTION:
The Current Boost System consists of a current boost module
and a current transformer (CT). The system provides
supplemental excitation source with the regulator which
allows the field to receive full forcing during generator
overloading and short circuits.
The Current Boost System allows three wire and four wire
generators to provide current during sustained single phase
and multiple phase line-to-line faults. The CBS also permits
four wire generators to support phase A and C line-to-neutral
faults. Phase B line-to-neutral faults will also have fault
sustaining capabilities since the regulator and CBS input
power is taken from the other unshorted phases.
The Current Boost Module uses the CB+ and CB- outputs
of the APR regulator as a "turn-on" signal. Boost power to
the module is supplied from a CT installed in phase A and C
of the generator output. During short circuits, the CT is the
source of all excitation current for the generator - see figure
2.
Because the APR regulator sensing is used to turn the boost

SAMPLE SPECIFICATION:
A current boost system shall be provided with the Basler

during severe generator output overloads or short circuit.
The operation of the current boost system shall be controlled
by the voltage regulator.
Power for the current boost system shall be provided by a
HOW TO ORDER- Current Boost System:
When the CBS is Order
to be used with
APR63-5 CBS 305
APR125-5 CBS 320
HOW TO ORDER- Current Transformer (CT):
Follow the step-by-step procedure below to select the proper
turns-ratio for your application. Based on the resulting turns
ratio, wire or bus size, and rated generator output current,
determine the part number of the CT having the proper
rating and window size.
Step 1. Calculate the exciter field current during generator
short circuit:
1
Field =
E/R
f
Where:
I
F
ield = Exciter field current at short circuit.
R
f
= Exciter field resistance from generator data.
E = CBS field forcing voltage (90 Vdc for
CBS 305, 180 Vdc for CBS 320)
Step 2. From the generator manufacturer's short circuit sat
uration data (plot of exciter field current versus line amps
with generator output short circuited), determine the genera
tor three phase line current during a short circuit that would
result from the exciter field current calculated in step 1.
If for your generator system: Then proceed to:
This results in excessive
generator line current . Step 3A
I
This results in acceptable
generator line current. Step 3B

CT installed in two phases of the generator output.
The current boost system shall be a Basler Electric Company
Mode CBS 305 current boost system, with a current trans
former selected based on Basler recommendation and gen
erator performance data.
Step 3A.
a. Determine the acceptable generator three phase line
current at short circuit (typically 300% of nominal). Refer
to Table 1 and locate the range that covers this value in
column 1.
b. Using the generator manufacturer's short circuit data (plot
of exciter field current versus line amps with the generator
output short circuited), determine the exciter short circuit
field current required to generate the acceptable generator
line current
0
2
). Refer to Table 1 and locate the current value
equal to this value in column 3. If the desired field current is
in between the column 3 values, go to the next higher value.
c. Check that the rated generator full load line current
doesn't exceed the maximum continuous line current in
column 2. If the generator full load line current does exceed
the maximum continuous line current rating, consult with
the factory.
d. To obtain reduced field current, place a current limiting
resistor in series with the exciter field. Calculate the value of
this resistor as follows:
Where:
R
s
= Value of series field resistance to be added (in ohms).
This resistance must not be so great as to restrict
normal forcing.
E = CBS field forcing voltage (90 Vdc for CBS 305, and
180 Vdc for CBS 320).

= Field current required to produce acceptable gener
ator line current at short circuit from b. above.

Step 3B.
a. In Table 1, column 1, locate the range of the generator
three phase short circuit line current that covers the value
determined in step 2.
b. Check that rated generator line current does not exceed
the maximum continuous line current in column 2.
c. In Table 1, column 3, locate the exciter field current that
is closest to the value determined in step 1. If the value is
between the values in column 3, go to the next higher value.
d. Proceed to step 4.
Step 4.
a. Find the turns-ratio at the point of intersection of the
values found in step 3.
b. The first numeral of the turns-ratio indicates the number
of turns of each of two (2) generator lines that pass through
the CT "window". T he second number indicates secon
dary turns provided by the CT terminals.
Step 5. Verify that the CT "window" size is sufficient for the
generator conductors by comparing the conductor cross
section (including insulation) with the window area shown in
figure 5, 6, or 7.

EXAMPLE
of the HOW TO ORDER- (CT) procedure on page 4.
Sample Generator Data:
lOOKW, 125kVA, 60Hz, 3-phase, 480V, 150A at full rated load, 15 ohm field.
I
F
= 5. 14Adc@ 300% short circuit (450A line)
I
F
= 6.0 Adc@ 350% short circuit (525A line)
(Step 1) Determine the field current that will be provided by a Basler CBS 305 during short circuit:
Where:
I
=
.
=
90Vdc
= 6 OA
F
R 15 ohms
I
F
= Field Current
E = APR63-5/CBS305 Maximum de output voltage.
R = Exciter field resistance.
(Step 2) From generator manufacturer's data, you determine that the exciter field current of 6.0A from the CBS 305
would result in a short circuit line current of 525A- for your generator system you consider this to be:
EXCESSIVE
(Step 3A) You determine that 450A would constitute an
acceptable generator line current at short circuit. From the
generator manufacturer's data, you determine that an exciter
field current of 5. 14A is required for the generator system
to deliver an acceptable 450A at short circuit.
In Table 1, column 1, the value of 450A is between the values
of 275 to 550A. Draw a horizontal line from this point across
the chart.
In Table 1, column 3, the value of 7.2A is the closest higher
value to the required value of 5.14A (from step 3A). Draw a
vertical line from this point down the chart.
In Table 1, column 2, the maximum continuous line current
of 200A is greater than the full load line current of 150A,
therefore, the limits of the CT are not exceeded.
Determine the necessary resistance to be added to the
exciter field to achieve the 5.14A exciter field current:
R
= s-
R
=
90Vdc
- 15 ohms
= 17.5 - 15 ohms =
s
1
2
f
5.14
2.5 ohms
Note - The series resistance must not be so great as to
restrict normal forcing.
(Step 4) From Table 1, the intersection of the two lines (from
step 3A) is the turns-ratio, 4:209.
4 turns on the primary: 209 turns on the secondary.
6
(Step 5) The first numeral of the turns-ratio (4), the num
ber of conductors per phase ( 1), and the number of phase
(2), multiplied together results in: 8 conductors (through the
CT window). From the generator manufacturer's data, 0.537
is the conductor diameter; therefore, for 8 conductors the
CT window must be at least 0.537 in X 4.30 inches. Basler
CT P/N BE21331-001 is 0.9 in. X 4.375 in. and meets the
requirement.
ACCEPTABLE
(Step 3B) In table 1, column 1, the value of 525A (from step
2) is between the values of 275-550A. Draw a horizontal line
from this point across the chart.
In Table 1, column 2, the maximum continuous line current
of 200A is greater than the full load line current of 150A,
therefore, the limits of the CT are not exceeded.
In Table 1, column 3, the value of 7.2A is the next higher
value after the required value of 6.0A (from step 1). Draw a
vertical line from this point down the chart.
(Step 4) From Table 1, the intersection of the two lines (from
step 3A) is the turns-ratio, 4:209.
4 turns on the primary: 209 turns on the secondary
(Step 5) The first numeral of the turns-ratio (4), the num
ber of conductors per phase ( 1), and the number of phases
(2), multiplied together results in: 8 conductors (through the
CT window). From the generator manufacturer's data, 0.537
is the conductor diameter; therefore, for 8 conductors, the
CT window must be at least 0.537 in. X 4.30 in. Basler CT
PIN BE21331-001 is 0.9 in. x 4.375 in. and meets the re
quirement.
