ABB
Important note on input circuit breaker design
The input circuit breaker (ICB) is a major protection device of the drive. If
a serious fault occurs in the drive, the ICB must disconnect the main power
supply to the drive immediately. The main power supply must be
disconnected without delay on an open or trip command from the drive to
prevent hazard to the personnel and further damage to the equipment.
Depending on the main power supply configuration of the drive system,
the ICB is either located on the primary side of the converter transformer
or on the primary side of the drive if the drive is connected directly to the
line (DTL).

ABB
The ICB is defined as a switching device to disconnect the power supply
whenever required by the process or when a fault occurs. Typical devices
used as MCBs are:

Vacuum circuit breakers

SF6 circuit breakers

Fused contactors or motor control centers

A dedicated protection relay is used for:

Transformer or converter primary cable protection (DTL)

Transformer protection (if applicable)

Transformer secondary cable protection (if applicable)

Backing up the drive protection

In general, these protective measures are not included in the drive as


provided by ABB.

Safety and protection requirements


For safety and protection reasons, the ICB must meet the stipulated
minimum requirements of the specifications of ABB MV Drives. It is the
system integrator's responsibility to ensure that the minimum requirements are met. The minimum requirements for the ICB are stated in this
note and in the respective ICB specifications, which are available for each
medium voltage drive from ABB.
The safety requirements for the drive are based on the following
standards:

ISO 13849-1 Safety of machinery - Safety-related parts of control


systems - Part 1: General principles for design, section 6.2.6
Category 3

IEC 60204-1 Safety of machinery - Electrical equipment of machines


- Part 1: General requirements

Minimum requirements for ICB and ICB control

The ICB open and / or trip command has to be wired directly from the
drive to the ICB. It is not permitted to wire the trip command through
any PLC or DCS system if it is not certified to meet SIL 3 level
requirements and to fulfill the timing requirements outlined below.

The maximum opening time of the ICB shall never exceed the
product or project-specific maximum time defined in the ICB
specifications. Typical maximum values for the drive are defined as
follows:

Maximum protection trip time: not applicable


The maximum protection trip time is the maximum allowed
breaking time (open and arcing) of the breaking device after the

2 (4)

3BHS343596 ZAB E01 Rev. D

MEGADRIVE-LCI A Users manual

ABB
open command has been initiated to prevent further damage to
the drive, e.g. diode failures.

Maximum safety trip time: 500 ms


The maximum safety trip time is the maximum allowed time to
ensure safe disconnection of the main power supply to prevent
any hazard to personnel.

Short-circuit occurs
Open and or trip command is set at the
drive control output
No further damage to drive

No hazard to personnel

Max. protection trip time


Max. safety trip time
Figure 2

ICB opening timing diagram


In order to meet the stipulated safety requirements, it is recommended
that:

the ICB is equipped with two independent opening coils, or

the ICB is equipped with one opening coil and an undervoltage coil
for monitoring of the control voltage, or

an upstream protection coordination scheme is provided which uses


the "breaker failure" (ANSI 50BF) signal to automatically trip the
upstream breaker, in case the ICB does not open. The upstream
breaker must open within the maximum safety trip time after a failure
has occurred.

Maintenance recommendation
The ICB trip circuits should be checked once yearly.

Rectifier/inverter

Both the rectifier and the inverter use thyristor stacks of identical design
and comprise apart from the thyristors also heat sinks, snubber circuits
and gate firing circuits.
The rectifier converts the alternating supply current to direct current. The
inverter then converts the direct current into a three-phase alternating
current that modulates into variable frequency and voltage depending on
the process requirements.

Each LIN controls a 6-pulse thyristor bridge and fires the thyristors
according to the magnetic or indirect light firing principle. It connects to the
AC 800PEC via fast fiber optics and provides analog inputs for converter
voltages and currents as well as digital contact inputs.
Depending on the numbers of thyristors per branch, different firing
principles apply.

If your drive has one thyristor per branch (ns=1), it follows the
magnetic firing principle and uses a gate driver interface (GDI) and
pulse transformers for gate firing.

If your drive has more than one thyristor per branch (ns=2-8), it
follows the indirect light firing principle and uses an MV gate driver
(MV-GDR) for gate firing.

The S800 provides an interface for processing slow analog and digital
signals.
The CIO provides an interface for processing fast analog and digital
signals.

NOTICE
High voltages will be present in the terminal compartment. High voltages
can cause flashover between the electric potential of different phase
conductors, and the electric potential of a phase conductor and earth.
Therefore, a minimum clearance of 55 mm must be maintained between
phase conductor and the terminals of any other phase conductor, and
between a phase conductor and earth.
See Connection plan in Appendix B - Mechanical drawings for information
on terminal hole sizes
Material requirements

Connection type

Use stainless steel bolts and nuts with the appropriate steel grade and
property class for the connection (recommended: A2-70 [designation
according to ISO 3506]). Nuts with bonded coating can be used as an
alternative to uncoated stainless steel nuts.
The following connection type is recommended when connecting a cable
lug (3) to a busbar:
Spring washer (1) and flat washer (2) on each side of the busbar (4).

A dark gray hand means that a user with higher priority is in control of the
drive. This is the case when the drive is controlled from the service PC. In
this case, you cannot transfer control to the panel
A red hand means that a user with lower priority is in control of the drive
(e.g. remote control, fieldbus, etc.). You can take over control by touching
the key. The hand turns green then.
A green hand means that control via the panel is active. You can start or
stop drive and change parameters and you have full control of the
reference value input.
Once you touch the key, control is transferred to the user with lower priority
(e.g. remote control, fieldbus, etc.). In most applications, it is the remote
control system of the drive but it can also be a fieldbus interface. The hand
turns red then.
A light gray hand means that control via the panel is active (see green

8.5.1

Software backup

Configuring automatic
backup

There are two ways to configure the backup tasks:

Rerun the file setup.exe.


Use setup.exe for standard configuration.

Open My Documents\PecUpDatas\9-SW_Infos\PecUpConfig.xml
Use/change PecUpConfig.xml only for troubleshooting. It allows
access to all PecUp settings. If you change this file, replace
C:\Temp_LCI\5-SW\PecUpConfig.xml with the new file.

For basic configuration, make the following settings:


1

Specify the LCI block number.

For each backup task, specify the time at which it is to start.

For each backup task, specify the maximum number of backup


images that are to be stored.
The backup task then creates an xxxPecUp.zip file for each backup
and saves it in the corresponding subfolder of My Documents\PecUpDatas. Once the subfolder contains the specified number of backup
images, the most recent image replaces the oldest one. The oldest
image is in turn moved to C:\Temp_LCI\5-SW\, which always contains
only one image as double backup.

Note: To check the functionality after installation, trigger a manual backup


and a reboot via the scheduled tasks.
Manual backup

Apart from automatic backup, it is also possible to create a backup image


manually as follows:

Right-click the corresponding task in the folder Scheduled Tasks and


select Run.
Regarding saving the backup image, the manual backup proceeds in
the same way as the automatic backup.

Monthly reboot
In order to replace ECR reboot scripts of earlier installations and prevent
LCT crashes, PecUp also includes a reboot task. By default, rebooting
starts one hour after the monthly automatic backup on the day specified in
the backup settings.
To configure the reboot task differently, proceed as follows:

8.5.3

Double-click the reboot task in the folder Scheduled Tasks.

If you want to change the start time, make sure to provide enough
time for any backup tasks to complete before rebooting starts.

Delayed start
The delayed start task enforces the LCT software to start 60 seconds after
Microsoft Windows starts (unless the user aborts the task). Delaying the
start of the LCT software ensures the necessary startup communication
with the AC 800PEC, before exchanging any data.
Make sure to remove any program links from the startup. Otherwise, the
LCT panel starts twice and crash.

8.5.4

Logging
All PecUp activities (backup, rebooting, delayed starting) are logged in My
Documents\PecUpDatas\9-SW_Infos\debug.txt.
If a task fails, a detailed report is generated directly in the corresponding
My Documents\PecUpDatas\... subfolder.

The device can be serviced or be replaced by authorized service personnel. It is recommended to replace the device
after four years of operation.
The average lifetime of the deionizer is 2-4 years, depending mainly on the water quality. At the same time the
deionizer is changed, the micro filter should also be replaced and the strainer should be cleaned.
The expected lifetime of the capacitors depends mainly on the ambient conditions. The recommended intervals are
based on operation with rated current and maximum permitted temperature. A capacitor should be replaced when
regularly taken measurements show significant deviation from the rated capacitance.
The expected lifetime of the optical fibers depends mainly on the ambient conditions. The recommended intervals are
based on operation with rated current and maximum permitted temperature. An optical fiber should be replaced when
regularly taken measurements show significant deterioration of the fiber.
Improvements based on further development, software modifications, etc. When printed circuit boards must be
replaced, an upgrade of the control system should be considered as well.
