25Hz Power Generation Capacity

Our older drainage pumps require 25Hz power. The modern standard is 60Hz. Turbine 4, Turbine 5 and our EMDs (back-up generators) generate 25Hz power. We also have Frequency Changers that convert 60Hz power provided by Entergy to 25Hz. The graphic below shows how much 25Hz power we can currently generate with the sources available.

49 MW

Currently Available

44MW of power needed at peak demand

Power Status:

  • Turbine 4 unavailable.
  • SWBNO crews anticipated bringing T4 back online the week of July 1. However, after replacing the bearings and conducting testing on the turbine, we identified further improvements needed for the machine, which was originally built in 1915. We have received and installed the new parts. Contractor personnel and SWBNO staff will begin testing the turbine on July 12.
  • Turbine 5 available for use.
  • Turbine 6 available for use.
  • EMDs #2, #3, #4 and #5 are in service.   EMD #1 is offline due to a radiator leak.

EMDs are back-up generators that provide 25Hz power.

  • Frequency Changer #1 at Carrollton Frequency Changer Facility is available for use.
  • Frequency Changer #2 at Carrollton Water Treatment Plant available for use.
