Are output filters and line reactors the same on VFDs?

Issue:
Output filters vs Line reactors

Product Line:
Drives.

Environment:
N/A

Cause:
Product features.

Resolution:
No. Output filters and Line reactors are not the same thing. (Load reactor if applied to the output)
Filters reduce DV/DT at the motor by filtering high frequencies. This helps protect the motor.
Line reactors add impedance to the line. This reduces current distortion between the drive and motor if applied to the output. It reduces current distortion on the line when applied to the line side of the drive.
See the information for the specific device for additional details.

Video: How is a faulted Altivar drive reset?

Issue:
Reset a  fault on a Altivar drive.

Product Line:
Altivar ATV variable speed drives

Environment:
All

Cause:
Need to reset a fault status.

Resolution:
There are multiple ways to reset a fault, including a logic input assignment and communication network.  But an easy way to reset a fault is to remove line voltage from L1,L2,L3.  Allow enough time for the display to go completely blank and then wait another 30seconds.  Reapply power.  If the fault appears again, it means that the VFD has re-faulted.

Note: Some faults have to be reset by removing and reapplying line voltage (power-cycling) the drive. Refer to your drive's Programming Manual for a list of faults that require a power cycle to clear. 

The following video demonstrates how to configure a logic input fault reset function on the Altivar 212:

What does "Connection in progress" mean on ATV630/ATV930 drives?

Issue:
Getting 'Connection in progress' on ATV630/ATV930 drives.

Product Line:
Altivar 630 Process Drive

Environment:
All serial numbers for Altivar 630 Process Drive

Cause:
N/A

Resolution:
This issue indicates the keypad is getting power from the drive but it is not communicating with it.
This almost always indicates the communication settings for the port are no longer at default.
  1. If SoMove or webserver connection is available, check the Modbus HMI baudrate and format.  The keypad is fixed at 19200 baud are requires 8 bits, Even parity, 1 stop bit. Changes to the communication settings are only taken into effect after reset, so a power cycle may be required. d
  2. If the keypad is remote mounted, and plugged into the HMI port on the front of the drive, move the connection cable to the Modbus network port since (as shown above) the default settings are compatible. If the keypad communicates, navigate to the Menu 6: Communication and then set the Modbus HMI baudrate to 19200 and the format to 8E1.  After power cycling the drive, move the keypad back to it's original port. 
  3. You might have a loose HMI or a remote cable. Try re-seating the HMI and remote cable. 
  4. If you've confirmed baudrate and format are set properly and that power has been cycled to the drive, try a known good keypad.
  5. Make sure there is no control voltage drop or grounding issues.
If issues remain the drive may require repair or replacement parts so contact Technical Support for further assistance.

    To adjust the increment of plus and minus speed, adjust the ACC and DEC. If ACC is set to 6 seconds, it will ramp 10 Hz for every second that the +speed is active (60Hz range / 6sec = 10Hz/sec).  Keep it active for 6 seconds and output will reach 60 Hz. To make +speed increase at a slower rate, increase ACC.  To make it faster, decrease ACC.  The same logic applies to -speed and DEC.

Altivar Machine Drive (ATV340 E version)

Environment:
All models and serial numbers for Altivar Process Drive
 
Cause:
Reset the password of the Embedded Ethernet Modbus TCP webserver

Resolution:
[My preferences] [Webserver]


ATV600 series Firmware < V1.5: The default User ID and password is: ADMIN  
ATV600 drives with Firmware V1.5 or higher no longer support ADMIN as a default password. The password is now unique to the drive and has to be looked up in the webserver submenu 8.7.
ATV900 series implemented the password change beginning with V2.1.
ATV340 E implemented this change with V1.6.
NOTE: The password is not shown unless the drive has an IP address assigned (either through DHCP server or fixed IP settings).
The default  User ID remains Admin (not case sensitive).

There has been an additional cyber security update to the drives that requires the default password to be changed on first connection via Ethernet (Webpage or SoMove). 
This was implemented in V3.3 for ATV600/ATV900 and in V3.2 for ATV340 E.
This enhancement means you will be required to enter the default password (available on the keypad) and then will be required to enter a new password to access the drive.
Password policies can be modified using SoMove or from the Webserver.

It is possible to disable this cybersecurity function from the keypad or via SoMove/webserver but caution should be used before doing so, since this can compromise the security of the system.

SoMove connections via the Modbus port are not impacted.

Go into Complete Settings, Command and reference, and set 2 wire type to level control.
Go into Complete Settings, Error/Warning Handling, Auto fault reset, and set auto fault reset to yes.
The drive will attempt to reset the fault for the length of time programmed in the Fault Reset Time parameter (default is 5 minutes) as long as the run command remains present on the drive.

It is also advisable to activate to Catch on the Fly in case the motor is already spinning when the drive restarts. (Complete Settings -> Error/Warning Handling)


Conditions that have to be met:
Must be in 2 wire control with run command present.
The automatic restart function has to be activated.
The condition that caused fault code has to have been resolved.  

The lists of fault codes that can be cleared automatically are listed in the ATV600 Programming Manual and ATV900 Programming Manual.

Can I use a larger HP Variable Speed Drive to run a smaller HP motor?

Issue:
Motor is smaller than the available drive.

Product Line:
All Altivar (ATV) drives

Environment:
All Environments

Cause:
Motor and drive sizing does not match.  Motor is smaller HP than Drive.

Resolution:
YES.
In most cases a drive can control a motor with lower HP (and current) rating.

The motor nameplate information will have to be entered correctly to ensure proper control of the motor and that the overload protection is enabled.   
In most cases the Overload protection adjustment range is the limiting factor.  If this parameter can not be set down to the motor FLA, an external overload relay will have to be provided.
When using small motors on a larger drive the Sensorless Flux Vector motor control modes may not work well.  Changing the motor control type to linear Voltage/Frequency is usually best.
Consult the programming manual for the drive being used for details on these parameter adjustments.
If working with an enclosed drive that has full voltage bypass, the Overload Relay in the bypass circuit may need to be changed if it's OL settings can not be adjusted down to the motor FLA.

NOTE that this does not pertain to Softstarts.   Softstarts will not work well with motors that are less than 40% of their continuous current rating.

Cause:
Default programming

Resolution:
The factory setting for Process drives' Local/Remote button is 'deactivated'.
To activate it:
  1. go to menu 5: Complete Settings (CSt-)
  2. go to menu 5.5 for ATV600: menu 5.4 for ATV900: Command and Reference (CrP)
  3. go to parameter HMI cmd. (bMP) and change it from Deactivated (diS) to Bumpless (buMP) or to Stop.
Bumpless means that if transitioning from Remote to Local the drive will continue in it's last state...so if it was running, it will continue to run at the same speed, but can now be controlled by the keypad in local mode.  When changing from local back to remote the drive will only run if the remote controls are calling for it to run and it will automatically switch to the remote speed reference.
Stop means that the drive will be stopped when switching between Local and Remote and a new run command will be required.

What would be the recommended cable size for connecting a dynamic braking resistor?

Issue:
Are there recommended cable sizes for connecting a dynamic braking resistor?
 
Product Line:
Altivar 930
 
Environment:
All models and serial numbers
 
Cause:
NA
 
Resolution:
When sizing the cable to be connected between the drive and the braking resistor, it is simply a matter of taking the drive's Max DC bus voltage level and dividing it by the brake resistor value to determine the current through the resistor.
I(amps) = V(volts) / R(ohms)  
The bus voltage divided by the ohm rating of the resistor will give you the maximum current draw. Also, when the circuit is very noisy, it is best to use shielded cable if you have noise concerns.

  • If a run command is present when power is applied to the drive and tCt (2 wire type) is not set to LEL (level), nSt will be triggered.
    • Check 2 wire type [Complete settings] [Command and Reference] [2-wire type]
  • If drive is in a Network setting and the parameter Control Mode [CHCF] is set to Separate or Not Separate then nSt may show until a run command is given.
  • Measure 24V to COM and make sure you have 24Vdc present.
  • Check 4-20mA Loss setting and see if it's set to freewheel stop.
  • Check External Error Response [Complete Settings] [Error/Warning Handling [External error] and see if it's set to freewheel stop.

What are the effects of dV/dt on a Motor when using a VSD?

As there is an impedance mismatch at the termination of the motor cable to the motor, there will be a reflected wave which travels back along the motor cable causing
overvoltage’s. Overvoltage’s on the motor terminals can cause both partial and corona discharge which eventually wears down the winding insulation to failure. 

Corona discharge occurs when the overvoltage is large enough to cause electrons to flow from one winding to another whilst ionising the air between the conductors. They cause damage to the internal and external insulating material respectively. As the motor cable length increases the peak voltage increases. This can increase to a value of 2 to 2.5 times the DC bus voltage. 

Schneider Electric Offer Sinus filters or dv/dt filters to reduce the overvoltage across windings and high frequency currents in differential mode. Check out our current ATV600 or ATV900 catalogue for more information on output filters to help you with overvoltage mitigation.

Why can't I use a domestic model APC UPS on a ship

Issue:

In North America, one would expect to see approximately 120 volts when
measuring from hot to neutral and from hot to ground. However, large ships
use delta power. That is, there are two hot legs (center tapped 120Vac) and a
ground: no neutral. Each hot is 60 volts. One can measure from hot to hot
(phase to phase) and will see 120 volts. When measuring from either hot to
ground, one will see 60 volts.


Product Line:

Smart-UPS

Environment:

All models with the "X93" suffix (IE: SU700X93, SUA1500X93)

Cause:

Standard North American Smart-UPS are designed for a 3 wire input comprised of a 120v Hot, Neutral, and Ground.


Resolution:

For this environment, APC has the Smart-UPS X93 Shipboard Series. A standard
120Vac model should not be used on a ship with delta power. When a 120Vac
APC UPS transfers to battery, it supplies 115V +/-5V on the hot leg. Herein
lies the problem with standard models on ships. According to the National
Electric Code, the neutral leg must be passed through the standard UPS
units without interruption. As a result, it is possible that 180Vrms may be
passed to the load when switching to battery (120Vac from the UPS inverter on
one phase and 60 volts from the ship on the second phase). Most computers have
power supplies that accept a wide range of input voltage; therefore, they would
not be affected by the voltage jump. However, if the load has any common mode
suppression (i.e. 150Vac MOVs), then the load may be affected.



Input to the X93 units is two hot legs at 60Vac each. The output is one hot
120Vac leg, a neutral and a ground. The primary differences between the X93
unit and the domestic are that the site wiring fault circuit is disabled, a
double pole breaker replaces the single pole breaker at the input, and a triple
pole switch is added that can disconnect the incoming AC as well as the bias
supplies in the UPS (it won't turn on anymore). The X93 does not break both
line and neutral unless the input breaker is tripped. If it just goes to
battery, the output and input neutral are still continuous. The ground and
neutral are not connected by the UPS so unless the neutral is bonded to ground
on the ship at the supply or load, one will not necessarily measure 0 volts from
neutral to ground at the output of the UPS.



Note: A customer who has decided to use a domestic model on a ship producing
delta power aware that  the ship must have over current protection (fuse or circuit breaker)
in each hot leg. This is because a fault within the UPS (highly unlikely) from neutral
(whichever hot leg corresponds to the neutral) to ground is not protected by
the UPS's circuit breaker. Without this branch protection on the ship, such a
fault within the UPS could be dangerous because fault current is not limited.
