This action prevents a further decrease in the

When the voltage decrease is
introduced by the compensator to approximately 6
percent from no load to full load at 0.8 lagging power

in load on the generator.
If some load is removed from the generator,
When the generator circuit breaker is closed and the
control switch is in the AUTOMATIC position, the
generator is under control of the voltage regulator (fig.
8-5). If the ac generator voltage is normal, the regulator
moving arm is at rest in a balanced state.
If an additional load is placed on the generator,
The Silverstat voltage regulator can increase the
excitation to the ceiling voltage of the exciter. It can also
reduce the excitation to the lowest value required.
Because total travel of the moving arm is only a fraction
of an inch, the regulating resistance can be easily varied.
This depends upon the requirements of the operating
