Capacitor bank controller sensors

Instrument transformers and sensors


ABBs SCC-125 combination current
and voltage transformer delivers meter
class performance and control power to
capacitor controllers, allowing utilities to
optimize VAr control on distribution grid
networks.
Utility challenges:
To take advantage of the wide range of capabilities of a
capacitor controller, the SCC-125 provides:
Standard current and voltage output values
Strong performance at high level harmonics readings
No phase angle shift correction required by controller
No ratio correction factor compensation required by
controller
Built in 120 V control power to power electronics and to drive
the capacitor switches
Overview
The future of power distribution relies on utilities to enhance the
visibility of the grid to optimize their network and deliver power to
consumers with greater reliability and efciency at minimal cost.
The result gives the SCC-125 its unique position as an effective,
long lasting sensor uniquely equipped for use with the stringent
demands of capacitor controllers.
Harmonics
The SCC-125 has the range to read up to the 66th harmonic, or
4 kHz. Readings with this range allow for optimal power quality
applications as well as fault current displays. When combined
with an integrated device, many other current sensors have a
much lower harmonic limitation.
Ratio correction factor
The SCC-125 meets the 0.3 metering class with no ratio
correction factor inside the controller. This reduces installation
time, maintenance, training, and potential errors in correcting for
unit to unit variation.
Performance
The SCC-125 has a C100 relay accuracy which allows it to
display values up to 12,000 amperes. This gives the controller
the additional ability to identify fault currents.
Output values
The SCC-125 delivers the traditional 5 A and 120 V output of
standard current and voltage transformers, combined with the
ease of installation of a line-post sensor due to its innovative
split-core design. This allows these units to connect with
any capacitor controller with no additional programming. The
voltage transformer output is based on actual line voltage and is
not dependent upon input impedance.
Phase angle shift
Other current sensing devices require a 90 phase angle shift
in the controller, which limits the capabilities of the application.
The SCC-125 does not require a phase angle shift and provides
real-time reading of the current wave form.
Control power
The SCC-125 contains a voltage transformer with a 120 V and
500 VA output that powers the controller as well as operates
the capacitor switch. This reduces costs by not having to
purchase and install an additional distribution transformer.
