Project Overview  

Arizona Public Service has requested a feasibility study to determine if it would be cost effective to replace the excitation systems on generators 1, 2, and 3 with static excitation at the Cholla Power Plant.

A newer system may offer economic benefits through improved system reliability and greater parts availability. Also newer excitation/regulation systems offer enhanced performance and features that may lead to cost savings.
