Function description of the voltage regulation
The TAPCON serves to keep constant the output voltage of a transformer
with an on-load tap-changer.
The TAPCON compares the transformer's measured voltage (V
actual
) with a
defined reference voltage (V
desired
). The difference between V
actual
and V
desired
is the control deviation (dV).
The TAPCON parameters can be optimally adjusted to the line voltage re-
sponse to achieve a balanced control response with a small number of tap-
change operations.
The following diagram shows an overview of voltage regulation.

Packaging, transport and storage
Packaging, transport and storage
Suitability, structure and production
The goods are packaged in a sturdy cardboard box. This ensures that the
shipment is secure when in the intended transportation position and that
none of its parts touch the loading surface of the means of transport or touch
the ground after unloading.
The box is designed for a maximum load of 10 kg.
Inlays inside the box stabilize the goods, preventing impermissible changes
of position, and protect them from vibration.
Markings
The packaging bears a signature with instructions for safe transport and cor-
rect storage. The following symbols apply to the shipment of non-hazardous
goods. Adherence to these symbols is mandatory.

Transportation, receipt and handling of shipments
In addition to oscillation stress and shock stress, jolts must also be expected
during transportation. In order to prevent possible damage, avoid dropping,
tipping, knocking over and colliding with the product.
If a crate tips over, falls from a certain height (e.g. when slings tear) or expe-
riences an unbroken fall, damage must be expected regardless of the
weight.
Every delivered shipment must be checked for the following by the recipient
before acceptance (acknowledgment of receipt):
Completeness based on the delivery slip
External damage of any type.
The checks must take place after unloading when the crate or transport con-
tainer can be accessed from all sides.

If external transport damage is detected on receipt of the shipment, proceed
as follows:
Immediately record the transport damage found in the shipping docu-
ments and have this countersigned by the carrier.
In the event of severe damage, total loss or high damage costs, immedi-
ately notify the sales department at Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen and
the relevant insurance company.
After identifying damage, do not modify the condition of the shipment
further and retain the packaging material until an inspection decision
has been made by the transport company or the insurance company.
Record the details of the damage immediately onsite together with the
carrier involved. This is essential for any claim for damages!
If possible, photograph damage to packaging and packaged goods. This
also applies to signs of corrosion on the packaged goods due to mois-
ture inside the packaging (rain, snow, condensation).
Be absolutely sure to also check the sealed packaging.
When damages are not determined until unpacking after receipt of the ship-
ment (hidden damage), proceed as follows:
Make the party responsible for the damage liable as soon as possible by
telephone and in writing, and prepare a damage report.
Observe the time periods applicable to such actions in the respective
country. Inquire about these in good time.
With hidden damage, it is very hard to make the transportation company (or
other responsible party) liable. Any insurance claims for such damages can
only be successful if relevant provisions are expressly included in the insur-
ance terms and conditions.

Storage of shipments
When selecting and setting up the storage location, ensure the following:
Protect stored goods against moisture (flooding, water from melting
snow and ice), dirt, pests such as rats, mice, termites and so on, and
against unauthorized access.
Store the crates on timber beams and planks as a protection against ris-
ing damp and for better ventilation.
Ensure sufficient carrying capacity of the ground.
Keep entrance paths free.
Check stored goods at regular intervals. Also take appropriate action af-
ter storms, heavy rain or snow and so on.

Ground the device with a protective conductor using the grounding
screw on the housing.
Note the phase difference of the secondary terminals for the current
transformer and voltage transformer.
Connect the output relays correctly to the motor-drive unit.
Supply the voltage via separators and ensure that current paths can be
short circuited. Fit the separator, clearly labeled, near the device's power
supply so that it is freely accessible. This will allow the device to be re-
placed with ease in the event of a defect.
Cable recommendation
Please note the following recommendation from Maschinenfabrik Reinhau-
sen when wiring the device.
Excessive line capacitance can prevent the relay contacts from breaking the
contact current. In control circuits operated with alternating current, take into
account the effect of the line capacitance of long control lines on the func-
tion of the relay contacts.

Information about laying fiber-optic cable
To ensure the smooth transfer of data via the fiber-optic cable, you must en-
sure that mechanical loads are avoided when laying the fiber-optic cable and
later on during operation.
Please note the following:
Radii must not fall below the minimum permissible bend radii (do not
bend fiber-optic cable).
The fiber-optic cables must not be over-stretched or crushed. Observe
the permissible load values.
The fiber-optic cables must not be twisted.
Be aware of sharp edges which could damage the fiber-optic cable's
coating when laying or could place mechanical loading on the coating
later on.
Provide a sufficient cable reserve near distributor cabinets for example.
Lay the reserve such that the fiber-optic cable is neither bent nor twisted
when tightened.

Information about shielding the CAN bus
In order for the CAN bus to operate faultlessly, you have to connect the
shielding using one of the following variants. If you are not able to use any of
the variants detailed below, we recommend using fiber optic cables. Fiber
optic cables decouple the voltage regulators and are not sensitive to electro-
magnetic interferences (surge and burst).
NOTICE

Damage to the device
If you connect the CAN bus cable to devices with different potential, current
may flow over the shielding. This current may damage the device.
Connect the devices to a potential compensation rail to compensate for
potential.
If both devices have different potentials, only connect the CAN bus ca-
ble's shielding to one device.
Variant 1: The connected devices share the same potential
If the devices to be connected share the same potential, proceed as follows:
1. Connect all devices to a potential compensation rail to compensate for
the potential.
2. Connect CAN bus cable's shielding to all connected devices.
Variant 2: The connected devices have different potential
Note that the shielding is less effective with this variant.

Checking circulating reactive current sensitivity
This section describes how to run the function test for circulating reactive
current sensitivity.
Select the "Circulating reactive current" parallel operation method
[ 78].
Set circulating reactive current sensitivity to a value of 0% [ 78].
1. Adjust both transformers in simplex mode to the same actual voltage by
means of the on-load tap-changer.
2. Connect the transformers in parallel and enable the parallel control.
The two TAPCON units must still be in a state of equilibrium.
The status display in the Parallel operation menu lights up blue.
3. On one of the two transformers, raise the tap position of the on-load tap-
changer by one setting; on the second transformer, lower the tap posi-
tion of the on-load tap-changer by one setting.
The two TAPCON units must still be in a state of equilibrium.
4. Adjust the circulating reactive current sensitivity until the result displayed
in the Measured values menu item exceeds the set value for the band-
width by approx. 0.2% to 0.3%.
5. Set the value given in the previous step for all TAPCON units in paral-
lel operation.
6. Press to select auto mode for all TAPCON units.
All of the TAPCON units return the on-load tap-changer units to
the original tap positions.
The function test for circulating reactive current sensitivity is complete.
If the earlier tap positions are not reached, increase the parameter value of
the circulating reactive current sensitivity.
If one of the two on-load tap-changer units switches one or more tap posi-
tions higher and the other switches the same amount lower, you need to re-
duce the parameter value of the circulating reactive current sensitivity.
After you have set the "circulating reactive current sensitivity" parameter,
continue with the function test for the circulating reactive current blocking
limit described in the next section.

Testing the circulating reactive current blocking limit
This section describes how to run the function test for circulating reactive
current blocking.
Set the circulating reactive current blocking limit to a value of 20%
[ 78].
1. Press on a TAPCON to select manual mode.
2. Using manual control, adjust the relevant motor-drive unit upwards (for
example 1 - 2 steps) by the maximum permitted tap difference in operat-
ing positions between the parallel operating transformers.
When setting the circulating reactive current blocking in the following proc-
ess step, wait approximately 2 to 3 seconds between the individual steps.
3. In the Parallel operation > Parallel operation method menu item, set
the circulating reactive current parallel operation method.
4. Reduce the circulating reactive current blocking limit parameter from the
set value of 20% in steps of 1% until the message Circulating reactive
current blocking limit exceeded is displayed.
Any further regulation is blocked.
After the set delay time for the parallel operation error message has
elapsed, the circulating reactive current blocking message is dis-
played
5. Increase the circulating reactive current blocking limit parameter again
until the message Circulating reactive current limit exceeded disap-
pears.
6. Press to select auto mode.
The motor-drive unit automatically returns to the original operating
position.
7. Set the value determined for the "circulating reactive current blocking
limit" for the TAPCON units in parallel operation as well.
If one TAPCON or all of the TAPCON units indicate Circulating reactive
current blocking limit exceeded even though the control inputs are correctly
connected for all TAPCON units, all of the TAPCON units block.
This could be due to various causes. Further information is given in the
chapter Troubleshooting [ 127].
The function test for the circulating reactive current blocking limit is com-
plete.

Checking tap synchronization method
This section describes how to run the function test for tap synchronization
(master/follower).
In parallel operation in accordance with the Automatic tap synchroniza-
tion method, the tap positions of the transformers running in parallel are
compared. It is therefore necessary that the transformers have the same
position designation and that the Raise and Lower signals produce the
same voltage change in all transformers.
NOTICE

Damage resulting from formation of circulating reactive current
If the parameters are not set correctly, damage may result from the forma-
tion of circulating reactive current and the resulting overload of transmission
lines and transformers.
Check transformer type plate.
Set TAPCON parameters in accordance with the configuration of the
transformers.
Before starting the function test, you must carry out the following steps:
1. Assign the master function to one TAPCON [ 79].
2. Assign the follower function to the other TAPCON units.
3. Compare the tap position displays of master and follower . All
of the TAPCON units must display the same tap position. If this is not
the case, switch all TAPCON units to the same tap position.

Behavior only with delay time T1
If the measured voltage U
actual
is within the set bandwidth , no control
commands are issued to the motor-drive unit for the tap-change operation.
Control commands will also not be issued to the motor-drive unit if the meas-
ured voltage returns to the tolerance bandwidth within the set delay time
T1 . However, if the measured voltage deviates from the set bandwidth for
a long period , a tap-change command occurs after expiration of the
set delay time T1. The on-load tap-changer carries out a tap-change in a
raise or lower direction to return to the tolerance bandwidth.

lay time T1 . If the measured voltage U

is complete, a control impulse is again output to the motor-drive unit for the
tap change to return to the tolerance bandwidth.

The device provides the following ways of changing the desired voltage val-
ue during operation:
Using the operating screen in the control parameters menu item or the
web-based visualization
Desired value selection using binary inputs (optional)
Using an analog interface (020 mA, 420 mA or 010 V) depending
on the equipment (optional)
Desired values set in kV refer to the primary voltage of the voltage trans-
former. Desired values set in V refer to the secondary voltage of the voltage
transformer. You can toggle between primary values and secondary values
in the "Desired value" parameter.
Setting the desired value
Proceed as follows to set the desired value:
1. Go to Settings > Parameters > Control > Desired value.
2. Enter desired value.
3. Press the Accept button to save the modified parameter.
Selecting the desired value (optional)
You can use this parameter to select the desired value used for control.
To specify the desired value using an analog signal, you need to create a
signal at the Desired value setting release input. If this is not done, the de-
vice uses the set desired value 1.
To select the desired value, proceed as follows:
1. Go to Settings > Parameters > Control > Select desired value.
2. Select the desired value needed in the list.
3. Press the Accept button to save the modified parameter.
Active power-dependent adjustment of desired voltage value
(optional)
The TAPCON Dynamic Setpoint Control (TDSC) function is used to adapt
the desired voltage value depending on the measured active power. This al-
lows you to compensate for a voltage drop during increased load or an in-
crease in voltage due to a decentralized feed-in.
Depending on whether positive or negative active power is measured, the
desired value calculation is based on 2 linear equations (see example in dia-

describes how you determine and set the bandwidth.
Determining bandwidth
In order to set the correct value, the transformer's step voltage and nominal
voltage must be known. Note that a large bandwidth will result in a large
control deviation.
The bandwidth must always be greater than the following value:

Delay time T1
Delay time T1 delays the issuing of a tap-change command for a defined pe-
riod. This prevents unnecessary tap-change operations if the tolerance
bandwidth is exited briefly.
Setting delay time T1
To set the delay time T1, proceed as follows:
1. Go to Settings > Parameters > Control > Delay time T1.
2. Enter delay time T1.
3. Press the Accept button to save the modified parameter.
Selecting time response T1
You can use this parameter to set the time response for delay time T1. You
can select the following options:
Linear time response
Integral time response
With linear time response, the device responds with a constant delay time
regardless of the control deviation.
With integral time response, the device responds with a variable delay time
depending on the control deviation. The greater the control deviation (U) in
relation to the set bandwidth (B), the shorter the delay time. This means that
the device responds faster to large voltage changes in the grid. Regulation
accuracy improves as a result but the frequency of tap-changes increases
too.

Delay time T2
You can use this parameter to set the delay time T2. Delay time T2 is used
to compensate for large control deviations faster.
The delay time T2 only takes effect if more than one tap-change operation is
required to correct the control deviation. The first output pulse occurs after
the set delay time T1. After the set tap-change delay time T2 has elapsed,
additional pulses occur in order to correct the existing control deviation.
The following requirements must be noted to set delay time T2:
The delay time T2 must be greater than the switching pulse time.
The delay time T2 must be greater than the maximum operating time of
the motor-drive unit.
The delay time T2 must be less than the value set for delay time T1.

Setting the switching pulse for controlling the motor-drive unit
You can use the switching pulse type, switching pulse time and switching
pulse pause parameters to adapt the switching pulse of the TAPCON to
the requirements of the motor-drive unit's control.
Selecting switching pulse type
You can use this parameter to toggle the switching pulse between a continu-
ous pulse or time-controlled switching pulse.
Selecting the "Continuous pulse" option causes the TAPCON to issue the
switching pulse in AVR Auto operating mode until the measured value is
back within the bandwidth. In AVR Manual operating mode, the device is-
sues the switching pulse for as long as you press the or key.
If the TAPCON is operated as a follower in parallel operation in this case,
then the TAPCON issues the switching pulse until one of the following re-
quirements has been met:
The set motor runtime has been reached
The Motor running signal switches states from 1 to 0
The tap position required by the master has been reached
A pause is enforced after every switching pulse before another switching
pulse is issued.
Selecting the "Time-controlled switching pulse" option causes the
TAPCON to issue the switching pulse for a set duration. A pause is en-
forced after every switching pulse before another switching pulse is is-
sued.
If you use a motor-drive unit from Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen GmbH, you
need to select the "Time-controlled switching pulse" option.

Setting motor runtime monitoring
The motor-drive unit's runtime can be monitored by the device. This function
is used to identify motor-drive unit malfunctions during the tap-change oper-
ation and to trigger any actions needed.
The motor-drive unit issues the Motor-drive unit running signal during the
tap-change operation. This signal is present until the tap-change operation is
complete. The device compares the duration of this signal with the set motor
runtime. If the set motor runtime is exceeded, the device triggers the follow-
ing actions:
1. Motor runtime exceeded event.
2. Pulse signal via Trigger motor protective switch output relay
Note that motor-drive units with cycle settings or motor-drive units without
stepped switching behavior will run for longer under certain circumstances.
Set a longer motor runtime for such units.

Parallel operation
In theParallel operation menu item, you can set the parameters needed for
parallel transformer operation. Parallel transformer operation is used to in-
crease the throughput capacity or short-circuit capacity in one place.
Compliance with the following general conditions is required for operating
transformers in parallel:
Identical rated voltages
Transformer power ratio (< 3 : 1)
Maximum deviation of short-circuit voltages (U
K
) for transformers con-
nected in parallel < 10%
Same number of switching groups
The same current-transformer connection has to be used for all devices
running in parallel
You can control up to 16 transformers connected in parallel in one or 2
groups without detecting the system topology. Information is swapped be-
tween the voltage regulators operating in parallel using the CAN bus. Paral-
lel operation is activated using one of 2 status inputs or the control system.
The device supports parallel operation following the methods described be-
low:
Parallel operation following the "Circulating reactive current minimiza-
tion" principle
Parallel operation following the "Tap synchronization" (master/follower)
principle
You must select the same parallel operation method (circulating reactive
current minimization or tap synchronization) for all voltage regulators oper-
ating in parallel. Otherwise you cannot operate the devices in parallel.

You must select the same parallel operation method (circulating reactive
current minimization or tap synchronization) for all voltage regulators oper-
ating in parallel. Otherwise you cannot operate the devices in parallel.
The following sections describe how you can set the parameters for a paral-
lel operation method.
Circulating reactive current minimization
When the circulating reactive current parallel operation method is select-
ed, then parallel operation is carried out using the circulating reactive current
minimization method. The circulating reactive current is calculated from the
transformer currents and their phase angles. A voltage proportional to the
circulating reactive current is added to the independently regulating
TAPCON as a correction for the measurement voltage. You can use the
circulating reactive current sensitivity parameter to reduce or increase this
voltage correction.
The circulating reactive current method is suited to transformers connected
in parallel with a similar nominal output and short-circuit voltage U
K
and to
vector groups with the same and different step voltages. This does not re-
quire any information about the tap position.

method, you have to also set the following parameters:
Circulating reactive current sensitivity
Circulating reactive current blocking limit
Setting circulating reactive current sensitivity
You can use this parameter to set the influence of circulating reactive current
on how the control deviation is calculated. The larger the set value, the
greater the calculated control deviation as a result of circulating reactive cur-
rent.

3. Press the Accept button to save the modified parameter.
Setting the circulating reactive current blocking limit
You can use this parameter to set the limit value for the maximum permissi-
ble circulating reactive current. This value relates to the rated current of the
current transformer. If, during parallel operation, the circulating reactive cur-
rent exceeds the set limit value, the device triggers the Circulating reactive
current blocking limit exceeded event. All devices operating in the parallel
operation group are blocked.
To set the circulating reactive current blocking limit, proceed as follows:
1. Go to Settings > Parameters > Parallel operation > Circulating reac-
tive current blocking limit.
2. Enter the circulating reactive current blocking limit.
3. Press the Accept button to save the modified parameter.
Setting tap synchronization
With the Tap synchronization parallel operation method, you need to desig-
nate one voltage regulator as the master and all others as followers. The
master handles voltage regulation and transmits its latest tap positions to all
followers via the CAN bus. The followers compare the tap position received
with their own tap position. If the tap position is not the same, the followers
switch to the tap position received from the master. This ensures that the
transformers operating in parallel are always in the same tap position.
If there is a tap difference between the master and follower, the master re-
frains from issuing any control commands to the motor-drive unit until all of
the followers have reached the same tap position. If the tap difference per-
sists for longer than the set delay time for parallel operation error messages,
the master triggers the Tap difference to follower event.
For the tap synchronization method, you can select the following options:

the same manner as for the circulating reactive current minimization parallel
operation method. The Circulating reactive current blocking [ 78] parame-
ter is used to set the limit value.

Maximum tap difference
You can use this parameter to set the maximum permissible tap difference
between followers and master on the follower.

master, the follower immediately blocks regulation. After the set delay time
for parallel operation error messages has elapsed, the follower issues the
Permitted tap difference to master exceeded message.

You can use this parameter to assign a CAN bus address to the device. So
that all devices can communicate using the CAN bus, each device requires a
unique identifier. Addresses can be set from 1 to 16. If the value is set to 0,
then no communication takes place.

Function monitoring
The "Function monitoring" function is used to detect long periods when val-
ues exceed or fall below the bandwidth. Long periods when values exceed
or fall below the bandwidth indicate a problem with the device function be-
cause the device is not able to correct the control deviation.
If the value falls below or exceeds the set bandwidth [ 57], the Function
monitoring event is displayed after the set delay time for function monitoring
has elapsed. The event is automatically acknowledged as soon as the
measured value returns to within the set bandwidth.
