3-PHASE COMPRESSOR WITH AUTOMATICPUMP DOWN
ELECTRICAL SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
On a call for cooling, a rise in temperature will cause the thermostat switchto close. 24 volts of power is now being sent simultaneously to theEvaporator fan relay(EFR) coil and Line solenoid Valve(LLSV) coil, whenthe EFR is energized this will cause N.O EFR contact to close and to send120 volts of power to energize the Evaporator Fan motor(EFM). As the N.C Liquid Line solenoid Valve (LLSV) coil is energized it will open andallows high pressure, low temperature liquid refrigerant to flow through thevalve to the metering device and flow into the evaporator. The liquidentering the evaporator will be under a reduced pressure and begin tovaporize. This will create a higher pressure on the low side of the system(Since vapor occupies more space than liquid). When the pressure risesabove a pre- determined cut-in setting on the low- pressure controller, thelow pressure control switch will close and power will go through the N. Cswitches in the following order: HPC, 3 CC overloads in series, a N.C Lock out relay switch and then energize the CC coil. When the interlocked CCcoil is energized, the N.O CC switches will close and the N.C CC switchcontrolling the crankcase heater (CCH) will open and de-energize the CCH.120 volts of power will be sent to the compressor motor (CM) and thecondenser fan motor (CFM) simultaneously. The Condenser Fan andCompressor Motor are now ON. The refrigeration cycle has now begun.When the thermostat detects the set point temperature has reached thedesired set- point temperature the thermostat will open and de-energizes theliquid line solenoid valve and also EFR coil will de-energize and the closedEFR contact will return to its N.O position and will de-energized the EFM.The EFM is now off. The Liquid Line solenoid Valve is now in its N.C position. However the compressor will still be working pumping refrigerantvapor from the evaporator to the condenser. As the pressure on the high sidegets higher due to the closure of the LLSV the pressure on the low side of the system will begin to drop. When the pressure drops at the cut- out settingof the Low Pressure Control the LPC will open and de-energize the CC coiland opening the CC contacts to the compressor and Condenser fan motor shut the compressor motor off. The CC contacts to the CCH will close andwill energized the CCH which will remain energized at all times during thecompressor OFF cycle.
