2.2 DCS 500 Power Converter Modules

The power converter modules are modular in construction. They are based on the casing, which houses the power section with the RC snubber circuit. There are 4 different sizes, graduated in terms of current and voltage ranges. All units are fan-cooled. The power section is controlled by the units electronic system, which is identical for the entire range. Parts of the units electronic system can be installed in the unit, depending on the particular application involved, e.g. a field supply for the motor, or an interface board. A control/display panel is available for the operator. It can be snapped into place on the power converter module or installed in the switchgear cubicle door by means of a mounting kit. Accessories such as external fuses, line reactors and the like are also available, for putting together a complete drive system.

2.4 Field Supplies

General data
Currents from 6 to 500 A Minimum field current monitor Integrated external field power converter or completely separate switchgear cubicle 2-phase or 3-phase model Fully digital control (except for the SDCS-FEX-1) We recommend integrating an autotransformer in the field power converter's supply circuit to adjust the AC input voltage and reduce the voltage ripple in the field circuit. All field power converters (except for the SDCS-FEX-1) are controlled by the armature-circuit converter via a serial interface at a speed of 62.5 kBaud. This interface serves to parameterize, control and diagnose the field power converter and thus provides an option for exact control. Moreover, it enables you to control an internal (SDCS-FEX-2) and an external (DCF 503/504) or two external field supply units (2 x DCF 503/504). The respective software function required is available in every DC power converter.

Serial interface
There are various serial interface options available for operation, commissioning and diagnosis, plus for controlling. According to the description in the previous section, there is a serial connection to the control and display panel (X33:/X34: on the SDCS-CON-2 control board). Installing the optional SDCS-COM-x communication board on the SDCS-CON-2 control board creates additional serial interfaces. Both interfaces use optical fibres. One channel is used for drive/PC interfacing. The other for fieldbus module interfacing. All three serial interfaces are independent from each other.

Operation by PC (continued)
The program incorporates nine different function windows which can be used to alter the application program on-line, to monitor the drives functionality, to alter the parameter values, to control the drive and to monitor its status. You will find below a brief description of the individual menu options, some of which are shown as a screen display to serve as examples.

Diagrams This window shows the function block diagram created by means of the GAD program. If necessary, the user can also use this window to view the values of selected parameters or connections.

Connect This option is used to trigger special functions such as establishing the connection to the power converter or configuring the program. ParSig The parameter and signal display enables the user to view parameter or signal values in a table and to alter them. One of the functions available for the user is to allocate each parameter or each signal to self-defined groups. He/she can then select only special groups, and trace or alter the values of parameters or signals in this group.

Trending This window can be used to trace the signal characteristics of specified parameters or signals. Up to six parameters or signals can be monitored. The window shows the values in a curve diagram.

Dlog The DC power converter is able to continuously log up to six signals and to store them in non-volatile memory from a trigger condition to be set (level, pre-event and post-event history). These values can then be read out by the program in chronological sequence and processed further. They are available as a table or as a diagram, in forms similar to those with the Trending option, and can also be printed out in these forms. DrvFuncs This display provides the same display and the same pushbuttons for the user as the CDP 312 display and control panel. For that reason, the drive functions are also identical.

Faults This display shows the current fault messages last fed into the fault logger in chronological sequence.

2.6 Options for the drive

Line reactors
for armature-circuit supply
When power converters are operated with thyristors, the line voltage is short-circuited during commutation from one thyristor to the next. This operation causes voltage dips in the mains. For the connection of a power converter system to the mains, a decision is made between the following configurations:

Assumption: The

system short-circuit power at

the power converters connecting point is 180 times the power converters rated power. The systems relative impedance voltage u can thus be determined:

In accordance with equation (1), the following applies for the line reactor:

When using the power converter, a minimum of 1% impedance is required to ensure proper performance of the snubber circuit. A line reactor can be used to meet this minimum impedance requirement. The value must therefore not drop below 1% u

Since the line impedance is seldom known (it can be determined by means of a measuring routine), and the short-circuit power at the same point is more frequently available, the line reactor can be calculated by means of this value.

Faults caused by components Semiconductor faults can be manifested in that

a thyristor no longer fires, for example, (5a) or in that it is permanently conductive (5b). Depending on the system condition (fourquadrant operation, regeneration, etc.), these two cases will then exhibit similar symptoms to those of cases 3 and 4. Faults:

Fig. 2.6/1 Arrangement of the switch-off elements in the armature-circuit converter

Switching elements such as fuses or overcurrent trips are used whenever overcurrents cannot entirely be ruled out. In some configurations, this will entail the following questions: firstly, at what point should which protective element be incorporated? And secondly, in the event of what faults will the element in question provide protection against damage? Possible sources of faults are:

5a, 5b

Insulation faults may occur within the cabling of the mains supply, the power converter and the motor. These can be subdivided into faults finally resulting in a short-circuit and those leading to an earth fault. - In the event of a short-circuit, the following generally applies: I >> I

Fusing of the armature-circuit supply

The table below shows the fault cases in which semiconductor fuses (super-quick-acting) can protect the drive system consisting of motor and unit. Those cases marked (X) would protect the motor only, and not the unit.

If one or more than one false firing pulses are produced, e.g. due to component faults or other influencing factors, then the current will likewise rise sharply; output current I >> IRATED ; Fault:

The following general rule applies: Analogue systems are more sensitive and more susceptible to malfunctions than digital systems. Digital systems are able to detect critical situations much easier and deliver facilities to prevent the equipment from shut down.

If (with four-quadrant units) thyristors of both bridges become conductive, circulating current is the consequence; the causes involved may be component defects or other influencing factors; the current on the three-phase side will rise substantially; IAC >> IRATED ; Fault:

voltage and line voltage rises above 1.05, which is followed by a situation called shootthrough; the current rises substantially; output current I >> IRATED ; Fault:

Before deciding whether fuses are going to be incorporated only on the DC side, you must first check in which working points the drive is used how often (proportion of time as compared to the overall duration of operation). The fault listing is independent of the electronics used.

Supply and fusing for the field supply

Basically, similar conditions apply for both field supply and armature-circuit supply. Depending on the power converter used (diode bridge, halfcontrolled bridge, fully controlled 4-quadrant bridge), some of the fault sources may not always be applicable. Due to special system conditions, such as supply via an autotransformer or an isolating transformer, new protection conditions may additionally apply. In contrast to the armature-circuit supply, fuses are

supply, since a fuse trip might under certain circumstances lead to greater damage than would the cause tripping the fuse in the first place (small, but long-lasting overcurrent; fuse ageing; contact problems; etc.). Fault No. 4 can also occur in the case of field supply units, but will not cause such a rapid and substantial current rise as encountered with an armature-circuit supply; this is due to the significantly higher inductance of the field winding. If conditions similar to those for armature-circuit supply are to apply, like for example protection of the field supply unit and the field winding, then a semiconductor fuse (super-quick-acting F3.1) must be used.

The faults listed here are described under Aspects of fusing for the armature-circuit and field supplies. Note: in the case of 1, 4, and 6, the current is limited to relatively small overcurrents due to the ohmic content of the field winding, so that the fuses may perhaps not be tripped.

See the text below in the Commutating reactor section

The F3.2 and F3.3 fuse types serve as line protectors and cannot protect the field supply unit. Only pure HRC fuses or miniature circuitbreakers may be used. Semiconductor fuses would be destroyed, for example, by the transformers starting current inrush.

Additional components for field supply

The field supply units insulation voltage is higher than the rated operating voltage (see Chapter Field supplies), thus providing an option in systems of more than 500 V for supplying the power section of the converter directly from the mains for purposes of armature supply, and using an autotransformer to match the field supply to its rated voltage. Moreover, you can use the autotransformer to adjust the field voltage (SDCS-FEX-1 diode bridge) or to reduce the voltage ripple. Different types (primary voltages of 400...500 V and of 525...690 V) with different rated currents each are available.

Commutating reactor
When using the SDCS-FEX-2 field power converter, you should additionally use a commutating reactor because of EMC considerations. A commutating reactor is not necessary for the SDCSFEX-1 (diode bridge); and in the DCF 503/504 field power converters, it is already installed.

Electronic system / fan supply

The converter unit requires various auxiliary voltages, e.g. the units electronics require 115 V/ 1-ph or 230 V/1-ph, the unit fans require 230 V/ 1-ph or 400 V/690 V/3-ph, according to their size. The T2 auxiliary transformer is available to supply the units electronic system and the singlephase fans.

EMC Filters
Selection of electrical components in conformity the EMC Guideline is described below. The aim of the EMC Guideline is, as the name itself implies, to achieve electromagnetic compatibility with other products and systems. The Guideline is designed to ensure that a product's emissions are so low that they do not impair the interference immunity of another product. Within the context of the EMC Guideline, two aspects have to be considered: the product's the product's

An earth fault monitor is provided by the standard software. If needed, the analogue input AI4 has to be activated, a current signal of the three phase currents should be supplied to AI4 by a current transformer.

Filter in a grounded line (earthed TN or TT network)

The filters are suitable for grounded lines only, for example in public European 400 V lines. According to EN 61800-3 filters are not needed in insulated industrial lines with own supply transformers. Furthermore they could cause safety risks in such floating lines (IT networks).

Three - phase filters

EMC filters are necessary to fulfill EN 50081 if a converter shall be run at a public low voltage line, in Europe for example with 400 V between the phases. Such lines have a grounded neutral conductor. ABB offers suitable three - phase filters for 400 V and 25 A....600 A and 500 V filters for 440 V lines outside Europe. Lines with 500 V to 1000 V are not public. They are local lines inside factories, and they do not supply sensitive electronics. Therefore converters do not need EMC filters if they shall run with 500 V and more.

The filters 25... 2500 A are available for 440 V and 500 V, and the filters 600...2500 A are available for 690 V too.

The filters can be optimized for the real motor currents: IFilter = 0.8 IMOT max ; the factor 0.8 respects the current ripple.

Many field supply units are single - phase converters for up to 50 A excitation current. They can be supplied by two of the three input phases of the armature supply converter. Then a field supply unit does not need its own filter. If the phase to neutral voltage shall be taken (230V in a 400 V line) then a separate filter is necessary.

The converter, the line choke, fuses, contactors and the EMC filter are to be placed on the mounting plate so that the connections can be made as short as possible, especially those from the converter via the line choke to the filter.

Separation transformers
A separation transformer makes line chokes unnecessary because of its leakage inductance, and a grounded screen between its windings saves an EMC filter. The screen and the iron core must be well connected with the mounting plate of the converter.

Converter transformers
A converter transformer transfers high power directly from a medium voltage line to a single large converter or to a local low voltage line for several converters. Furthermore it acts as separation transformer. If such a converter transformer has no screen the EMC demands are nevertheless fulfilled in most cases because the RF interference energy can hardly get via the medium-voltage line and the transformer of the public line to the loads which must be protected against pertubances.


ends by metal clamps or

comparable means directly on clean metal surfaces. In the converter cubicle this kind of connection must be made directly on the sheet metal close to the terminals. The necessity of a screen depends on the length of the cable and on the environmental demands. If a screen is necessary then it must be pressed by a well conducting metal clamp directly against the mounting plate or the PE bar of the converter cubicle. Screened cables to the armature and to the excitation winding cause the lowest noise level. The armature current cable must contain a third wire for a PE connection if the copper cross section of the screen cannot fulfil the PE safety demands. If a screen is not necessary the armature current cable must be a fourwire cable because two wires are needed as conductors for the parasitic RF currents from the motor to the RF filter in the cubicle.

Explanations to the GAD Drawings

Sheet 2/16 The SETTINGS block serves for scaling all important signals, such as line voltage, motor voltage, motor current and field current. The language, in which you want to read your informations on the panel, can be selected. The MANUAL TUNING block provides reference values and test conditions so as to enable all controllers to be adjusted in the power converter. If the panel is used as a meter in the cubicle door, an assortment of signals can be defined here. The CONSTANTS and FREE SIGNALS blocks can be used for setting limitations or special test conditions. The AO2 block represents a scalable analogue output. Sheet 3/16 The DRIVE LOGIC block reads in various signals from the system via digital inputs DIx, processes them, and generates commands, which are outputted to the system via digital outputs DOx, e.g. for controlling the power converters line contactor, the field-circuit contactor or contactors for various fans, or for outputting status messages. Sheet 4/16 This page depicts the conditioning routine for speed feedback and reference values. The AITAC block is used to read in the speed feedback from an analogue tacho. The SPEED MEASUREMENT block processes the 3 possible feedback signals: analogue tacho, pulse generator or the converter's output voltage (SPEED_ACT_EMF) - conditioned by the EMF TO SPEED CALC block (if 2102=5 , no field weakening function possible). Parameters are used for activating smoothing functions, selecting the feedback value and where applicable for setting the maximum speed. This parameter also serves for scaling the speed control loop. The RAMP GENERATOR block contains a ramp function generator with 2 ramp-up and ramp-down ramps, 2 times for the S-curve, limitation for upper and lower limits, hold function and the functions for Follow the speed reference or Follow the speed feedback. There is a special signal available for the treatment of acceleration and deceleration. The speed reference for the ramp function generator is formed by the REF SEL blocks, which can be used to select the reference value required, the CONST REF block, which generates a maximum of 4 permanently settable reference values, the SOFTPOT block, which reproduces the function of a motorpotentiometer in conjunction with the block RAMP GENERATOR, or by the AI1 block (analogue input 1). Sheet 5/16 The SPEED CONTROL block contains the speed controller with P, I and DT1 contents. For adaptation it receives a variable P-amplification. The REF SUM block enables the output of the ramp function generator and a userdefinable signal to be added. The result is compared to the speed feedback from the SPEED MEASUREMENT block, using the SPEED ERROR block, and then passed to the speed controller. This block permits evaluation of the system deviation by means of a filter. Moreover, it is possible here to make a few settings which are needed for the Window operating mode. If the drives speed feedback is within a window around the reference value, then the speed controller is bypassed (provided Window Mode has been activated; the drive is controlled by means of a torque reference value at the TORQ REF HANDLING block). If the speed feedback is outside the window, the speed controller will be activated, and will lead the drives actual speed back into the window. The SPEED MONITOR block contains motor stalled - and tacho monitoring function, and compares a selected speed feedback value against overspeed, minimum speed and 2 settable thresholds. The AO1 block represents a scalable analogue output. Sheet 6/16 The torque reference generated by the speed controller is passed to the input of the CURRENT CONTROL block via the TORQ REF HANDLING block, and there it is converted into a current reference value and used for current regulation. The TORQUE / CURRENT LIMITATION block is used for generating the various reference values and limitations; this block contains the following functions: speed-dependent current limitation, gear backlash compensation, generation of the values for static current limitation and torque limitation. The values for the various limitations are used again at some other points, for instance at the following blocks: SPEED CONTROL, TORQ REF HANDLING, TORQ REF SELECTION, and CURRENT CONTROL. The TORQ REF SELECTION block contains a limitation with upstream addition of two signals, one of which can be routed through a ramp function generator; the other signals evaluation can be dynamically altered using a multiplier. The AI2 block (analogue input 2) is used for reading in an analogue signal. Sheet 7/16 The TORQ REF HANDLING block determines the drives operating mode. When in position 1, the speed control mode has been activated, whereas in position 2 it is torque control mode (no closed-loop control since there is no genuine torque feedback available in the unit). In both cases, the reference value required comes from outside. Positions 3 and 4 are a combination of the first two options stated above. Note that with position 3 the smaller value out of external torque reference and speed controller output is passed to the current controller whereas with position 4 it is the larger one. Position 5 uses both signals, corresponding to the method of functioning of Window Mode. The CURRENT CONTROL block contains the current controller with a P and I content, plus an adaptation in the range of discontinuous current flow. This block also contains functions for current-rise limitation, the conversion of torque reference value into current reference value by means of the field crossover point, and some parameters describing the supply mains, and the load circuit. Sheet 8/16 The EMF CONTROL block contains the armature-circuit voltage controller (e.m.f. controller). It is based on a parallel structure comprising a PI controller and a precontrol feature, generated with a characteristic of 1/x. The ratio between the two paths can be set. The output variable of this block is the field current reference value, which is produced from the flux reference value by another characteristic function using linearization. Since a DCS power converter can control 2 field units, some of the function blocks are duplicated. This means that, depending on the mechanical configuration of the drives concerned, you can control 2 motors either in parallel or alternatively. The requisite configuration of the software structure can be generated by designing the blocks appropriately during the commissioning routine. The MOTOR1 FIELD / MOTOR2 FIELD block reads in the field current reference value and all values which are specific to the field supply unit, and transfers these to the field power converter via an internal serial link; the field power converter is scaled to suit its hardware, and performs field current regulation. The field current direction for motor 1 can be determined using binary commands, while for motor 2 it can be generated in the course of an application upstream of the block concerned. The MOTOR1 FIELD OPTIONS / MOTOR2 FIELD OPTIONS block controls the freewheeling function in the event of line undervoltage, and the field current reversal function with field reversal drives (only for motor 1). In case of field reversal drives, there is an option for selectively influencing the moment of armature-circuit and field current reduction and build-up. Sheet 9/16 The CONVERTER PROTECTION block monitors the armature circuit for overvoltage and overcurrent, and monitors the mains for undervoltage. It provides an option for reading in the total current of the 3 phases through an additional external sensor and monitoring it for not equal to zero. The MOTOR1 PROTECTION block, in its upper part, evaluates either the signal from an analogue temperature sensor, or from a Klixon. In its lower part, it computes motor heat-up with the aid of the current feedback value and a motor model, after which a message is outputted. The MOTOR2 PROTECTION block works in the same way as the MOTOR1 PROTECTION block, but without Klixon evaluation. Sheet 10/16 The BRAKE CONTROL block generates all signals needed for controlling a mechanical brake. Sheet 11/16 The AI3 and AI4 blocks represent another 2 analogue inputs which have as yet not been assigned to any particular functions. The blocks A15 and A16 represent another 2 additional inputs which are only active, if the board SDCS-IOE1 is connected. Another 7 digital inputs DI 9 .. DI15 are available with this additional hardware. Sheet 12/16 A fieldbus module with serial communicated references should be used, if analogue and digital signals are not sufficient for the control of the drive (equipment for the installation of Profibus, CS31, Modbus etc. is available). This type of module is activated by means of the block FIELDBUS. The data transferred from the control to the converter are stored in the blocks DATASET1 and DATASET3 as 16-bit-information. Depending on the application the output pins of these blocks have to be connected to input pins of other blocks in order to transport the message. The same procedure is valid for blocks DATASET2 and DATASET4, if they are connected. These blocks are transmitting information from the converter to the control system. Sheet 13/16 The converter is able to be configurated in a 12-pulse parallel application. In this case you need: - two identical armature converters - one field supply unit - one T-reactor - communication via ribbon cable connected to X 18 of both converters The 12-PULSE LOGIC must be activated and guarantees a synchronous control of the MASTER and the SLAVE drive. Sheet 14/16 The block DATA LOGGER is able to record up to six signals. The values of these signals will be stored in a battery buffered RAM and are still available after a break down of the supply voltage. The time of recording can be influenced by a trigger signal, as well as the number of recorded values before and after the trigger signal. The function DATA LOGGER can be set with both panel and PC tool. For evaluation of the recorded values a PC tool is recommended. Sheet 15/16 By using the blocks USER EVENT1 to USER EVENT6 six different messages are created, which are displayed as faults or alarms on the panel. Sheet 15/16 By using the block FLTHNDL (faulthandling ) the faults and alarms of the drive are regrouped as 16-bit information.
