Medium Voltage AC Drives
ABB is a leading international supplier of medium voltage AC drives in the range of 315 kW to 100 MW.
Medium voltage AC drives from ABB are used to control the speed and torque of induction and synchronous machines where high powers are needed. By delivering precise process control through ABB's patented Direct Torque Control (DTC), our drives ensure the highest control accuracy without the use of an encoder, despite input power variations or sudden load changes.
Medium voltage drives made by ABB adapt the machine speed to the actual need, thus optimizing energy consumption.
Medium voltage drives for speed and torque control of 315 kW up to 5 MW motors
The ACS 1000 delivers precise process control through Direct Torque Control. The low component count of the ACS 1000 makes it inherently more reliable. The ACS 1000 is retrofit-ready with a variety of flexible options you can choose according to your needs.
The ACS 1000i, the latest member of the ACS 1000 product family, uses a drive cubicle in which the input transformer, input contactor and on-board auxiliary power supply are now built-in, while maintaining the compact size of its very successful sister drive, the ACS 1000. The fully integrated drive, available with a 24-pulse rectifier for ultimate network friendliness, allows for easiest integration into existing systems (three cables in / three cables out).
Key product features:
Retrofit-ready for existing motors and suitable for most medium voltage applications including pumps, fans, compressors, extruders, conveyors.
Output sine filter for pure sinusoidal voltage and current output: standard motors, no motor derating, no voltage stress and no common mode voltages on the motor insulation.
Fuseless design for reliable, non-aging, maintenance-free circuit protection.
DTC control platform for exceptionally high torque and speed control performance.
Integrated or separate input transformer for highest system design flexibility.
Simple and reliable motor control
The ACS 2000 general purpose drive provides simple and reliable motor control for a wide range of applications. It is designed for high reliability, easy installation and fast commissioning reducing the total cost of ownership.
It can be retrofitted to control standard induction motors via a direct connection to a 6.0 - 6.9 kV line supply (direct-to-line). Alternatively, a simple two-winding input isolation transformer can be applied to allow for flexible line side supply voltages.
Suitable for use with or without an input isolation transformer
Direct-to-line connection (transformerless) provides lowest cost of ownership
Active Front End (AFE) for minimal line side harmonics with power factor correction and regeneration
Simple drive system integration
Three in - three out cabling technique for quick and easy installation
Suitable for new or existing induction motors
High reliability and low maintenance costs
Precise and reliable process control with Direct Torque Control (DTC)
Medium voltage AC drive for control of motors up to 6.9 kV
The ACS 5000 combines well-proven, highly reliable components, which have been used in thousand of drives worldwide, with the Voltage Source Inverter Multilevel-Fuseless (VSI-MF) topology. This simplifies the drive, increases its reliability and efficiency and results in the most application-friendly high-powered drive available in the market.
Features & benefits:
For standard induction, synchronous and permanent magnet motors
With air or water cooling
Integrated or separate input transformer for air-cooled ACS 5000
Monitoring tool for remote real-time access to the drive available
Fast and accurate control performance due to DTC
Highest reliability due to lowest parts count
Highest system efficiency due to VSI-MF topology, IGCTs and DTC
Smallest footprint due to highest power density
Optimal network friendliness due to 36-pulse configuration
Medium voltage drive for speed and torque control of 3 up to 27 MW motors
ABB's ACS 6000 is a modular drive designed for the most demanding single-motor or multi-motor applications. Since its introduction, the ACS 6000 has gained an excellent reputation for high quality and reliability.
Key product features:
Active rectifier unit for four-quadrant operation and reduced harmonics.
Line supply unit for constant power factor of 0.95 over the whole speed range.
Common DC bus for multiple machine operation and energy recuperation.
Modular design for optimum configurations.
IGCT power semiconductor for highest reliability.
DTC control platform for exceptionally high torque and speed performance.
Large variable-speed synchronous motor drives from 2 to 72 MW (higher on request)
Many industrial processes can be improved by using adjustable-speed electric motors. The larger the process and the higher the performance demands, the greater the benefits from electronic speed control. The energy savings alone in a drive of a few megawatts can offset the costs of the speed control system in just months or a few years.
