Performance of Adjustable-Speed AC Drives Rated 375 kW and Larger
|Publication Date:||16 February 2015|
This standard applies to ac adjustable-speed drive (ASD) systems rated above 375 kW and above 750 V output voltage as used in petrochemical and similar applications. It covers the performance requirements for an ASD system including, but not limited to, input transformer or reactor as required, power electronics, control interfaces, cooling system, switchgear, and motor. Requirements for power quality, engineering analysis, start-up assistance, training, and spare parts are also included. Certain items such as the motor, switchgear, or transformer may be excluded from the scope of vendor supply if specified in the data sheets; the system vendor shall specify any special requirements for the excluded equipment.
The purpose of this standard is to assist users in defining the required performance of a drive system in clear terms. It is not intended to specify a particular technology that must be followed. It is to be used with the data sheets provided in Annex A and Annex B.
