  • Page 11: Overview

    — 1 OVERVIEW The ABB PCS100 AVC-20 is an inverter-based system that protects sensitive industrial and commercial loads from voltage disturbances. Providing fast, accurate continuous voltage regulation and load voltage compensation, the PCS100 AVC-20 has been optimally designed to provide effective, efficient voltage regulation where industrial or commercial processes demand a clean, readily available, and consistent supply of power.
  • Page 12: Functional Description

    2.2 Regulation Capabilities he PCS100 AVC-20’s performance with undervoltage is adaptive to load conditions. Based on the loading of the unit or load power factor the PCS100 AVC-20 fully regulates undervoltage from down to 80% of the nominal voltage. Detailed regulation capabilities are shown in the following table.
  • Page 13: Pcs100 Avc-20 Performance Curves

    PCS100 AVC-20 User Manual If the utility voltage deviates beyond +/- 20%, the PCS100 AVC-20 will still provide continuous regulation to as close to nominal voltage as possible, ensuring trouble free operation of the protected equipment. The adaptive approach to performance enables users to select the unit based on the load or based on the required output voltage accuracy 2.3 PCS100 AVC-20 Performance Curves...
  • Page 14: Single Line Diagram

    It measures the incoming supply voltage and provides almost instantaneous regulation for any deviation. The PCS100 AVC-20 incorporates a bypass system which is used in the event of a fault situation outside of the PCS100 AVC-20 specifications. Should the inverter become overloaded the bypass system shunts the injection transformer, relieving the load from the inverter.

    Utility Supply Load Bypass OPEN Figure 2-4: PCS100 AVC-20 Energy Flow in case of utility supply equal to nominal level 2.1.2 Internal Bypass Operation In the case of an external overload or internal fault condition the internal bypass circuit will shunt the inverter side of the injection transformer, bypassing the inverter and effectively providing a direct connection from the utility supply to the output, without interruption to the load.

    A Stop-Enable switch is mounted inside of the Master Controller Enclosure as a failsafe device. In case of any user interface display or remote-control failure this switch can be used to stop the PCS100 AVC-20 operating and put it into BYPASS mode by setting to STOP. This will inhibit PCS100 AVC-20 from starting.

  • Page 111: Protection Requirements

    An upstream circuit breaker is required to protect the AVC-20 against short circuit faults. The PCS100 AVC-20 is rated to be connected to power systems having fault capacity of the values shown in the following table. To provide discrimination time for downstream protection, the AVC- 20 can withstand rated fault capacity for 200ms.
  • Page 112: Overload Protection

    Where available for the required load current (typically <1600A), molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs) are the correct choice for protection of PCS100 AVC-20 systems. MCCBs, such as ABB TMax series, use magnetic repulsion to clear fault currents of 10 -15 times the nominal current within about 6ms. But note that below about...
  • Page 113: Acbs

    Above about 1600A, air circuit breakers (ACBs) are the only choice. These do not provide any sub-cyclic current limitation in short circuits. Typical ACBs can clear in 60-80ms, but the ABB Emax2 series is preferred as it can clear in only 40 ms. As with MCCBs, to minimize arc fault energy, it is critical to set instantaneous tripping under lowest expected arc current –...
