Intended audience This manual is intended for people who plan the installation, install, commission, use and service the drive modules connected in common DC link.
  • Page 9: Common Dc Configurations

    Common DC configurations Introduction ACSM1 drive modules can be connected via DC terminals together to have so called common DC configuration. Within common DC the drives with regenerative power from motor can feed via DC link the other drives, which are on motoring mode.

    AC supply. P should be determined over the worst-case 30 seconds gen,ave time window, if the internal braking chopper of the ACSM1 is used. Peak regenerative power P gen,max is the negative peak power in the power profile. This value has a gen,max major impact on the number of active braking choppers needed.

  • Page 15: Checking The Charging Capacity

    The charging current is fed through the unit(s) connected to AC. Due to this the charging capacity of the selected supply unit has to be checked. ACSM1 drive modules in frame sizes A-D have a charging circuit in series with the capacitor bank. •...

    The peak current I is calculated as follows. ac,peak × • peak where the U is the line to line supply voltage. The charging time is generally about 0.3 s (U > 95% U ) with ACSM1 drive modules.
  • Page 17: External Dc Supply

    There is no need for an external charging circuit with the external DC supply, because the ACSM1 drive modules have internal charging circuits. When some other type of supply unit than ACSM1 is used, its DC voltage compatibility with the ACSM1 must be checked in addition to the earlier...
  • Page 18: Mains Choke Selection

    In common DC connections, the ACSM1 drive module(s) connected to AC supply must be equipped with mains choke(s). Mains chokes are needed • to get the maximum DC power ratings from the ACSM1 drive module(s) • to reduce the AC input current (rms, peak) level •...

    IEC 61000-3-2, IEC 610003-4 and IEC 610003-12 are fulfilled. A more accurate harmonics analysis can be made with sizing tool DriveSize. See also ABB’s Guide to Harmonics with AC Drives in AC Drives Technical Guide Book for basic theory about this topic.
  • Page 21: Regenerative Power

    DC system is not enough. This can be done by braking resistors or feeding the excess energy back to the supply network. At the moment only resistor braking can be used with ACSM1 drive modules. However, it is also possible to use a suitable external supply unit, which can feed the energy back to network (so called regenerative supply unit).

    Selection of AC supply fuses The standard selection table for the AC supply fuses in the single drive configuration can be found in the ACSM1 hardware manual. That selection guideline can be used, when the AC supply line current of the drive module(s) connected to AC supply is according to that table.

    The compliance of the drive modules with EMC directive is specified in the ACSM1 hardware manual for the single drive configuration. Please notice that different common DC configurations have not yet been tested from EMC point of view. However the available mains filters can be used in the AC supply of the common DC system, but the rules to meet different EMC categories are not yet available.
