CONNECTOR DETAILS:

  • Top Side Connectors:

  • Fault Feedback Terminals:

  • Terminals marked with TFB1 ---- TFBnn and COM.

  • COM: The reference voltage level with respect to this terminal the other digital voltages of +12Vdc are given to TFBnn.

  • TFBnn: The number nn is normally connected to corresponding step number nn thyristor switching fault feedback. These are +12Vdc signals given by thyristor switches whenever these trip due to any fault that is observed in the specific step.

  • Auxiliary Input:

  • Terminals marked with AI & COM. The various functions like:

  • Output Disable / Enable.

  • Mains / Generator Mode change-over.

  • Faults reset.

  • The function out of these is selected through user settable parameter. The Logic’1’ is with +8V to +14Vdc at the input terminal ‘AI’ with respect to ‘COM’ and Logic’0’ is with 0 to +0.5Vdc.

  • Auxiliary Output:

  • Terminals marked with AO & AO. These are Normally Open auxiliary contacts. Maximum contact rating is 0.5Amp/240Vac or 100mA/48Vdc. This is used for getting the outputs control of:

  • Output tripped fault.

  • Indicative + tripped fault. (system fault)

  • Out of Step. (Inadequate compensation)

  • Reset modem (In case of communication failure with GSM modem)

  • The function out of these is selected through user settable parameter.

  • For inductive switching loads like contactor/ relay coils, it is recommended to use the RC snubber circuits for AC and free wheeling diode for DC. The values can be as per coil inductance section. Typically it is R=330/2Watt, C=0.1F/1000V for 240Vac system.

Conventional LT side PF

improvement system Schematic:

Various Installation Schemes.

Scheme-1.

As per this scheme, the load sensing CT is put between the Source and the PF correction Capacitor banks. This is as per the diagram shown above.

The voltage feedback is taken from the LT bus system itself.

This type of scheme is used when user is interested in maintaining the healthy Power Factor on the secondary side of the transformer.

This scheme is preferred with LT consumers of electricity, where the metering is carried out on LT side.

Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF-02. i.e. the capacitor current feedback CT senses the overall current of the capacitor banks in the circuit.

with HT side feedback:

Scheme-2.

As per this scheme, the load sensing CT as well as voltage feedback PT is put at the input of the transformer on HT side.

This scheme is preferred with LT consumers of electricity, where the metering is carried out on HT side.

Using this scheme gives even the compensation against magnetising current of the transformer. Thus, for HT metering, able to give more accurate results.

Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF-02. i.e. the capacitor current feedback CT senses the overall current of the capacitor banks in the circuit.

This feedback is common in all the schemes. The relay has provision to program the HT PT ratio as well as defining the capacitor working voltage.

Usage of summation CT for

changeover system.

Scheme-3.

In case of system with duel sources of supply, I.e. Supply Grid and Generator. Under such case, the system can be shifted between the two sources. For every source there may be different requirements of max. loading on sources as well as requirements for different target PF settings.

With such schemes, a summation CT is used. The changeover between the two sources is informed to TRPF-02 through its Aux. Input port. TRPF-02 is capable of handling such duel settings.

Using this scheme gives user an advantage of using a single PF improvement system with either of the source in operation.

Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF-02.

to In Phase mode has Phase ‘P’ to Neutral ‘N’ voltage value.

Therefore the relay voltage selection should be done according

to the mode of operation selected.

CT Selection:

For Mains Current Feedback:

Normally the Primary current rating of the CT is equal to the maximum capacity of the mains source current.

But sometimes, even with source having more capacity, the Load requirements are comparatively small. Under such case its recommended to use the CT rating equal to the maximum known Load current.

This will give better results and also gives better accuracy of measurement.

The secondary of the CT can either be 5Amp ac or 1Amp ac. The VA rating of the CT should be minimum 3VA, even though the actual VA burden offered by TRPF-02 is less than 0.5VA. This is to take care of longer lead lengths and contact drops.

For Capacitor Current Feedback:

Here the primary current rating of the CT should be equal to the maximum current that can flow through the PF correction system.

The secondary of the CT can either be 5Amp ac or 1Amp ac. The VA rating of the CT should be minimum 1VA, even though the actual VA burden offered by TRPF-02 is less than 0.5VA.

General about CT connection: The CT secondary should be brought to TRPF-02 terminals through a terminal block. This block should have arrangement to short the CTs.

This is to take care of CTs being left open circuited and thus getting damaged, when TRPF-02 terminals are removed.

All the three conditions specified in the diagram, the four quadrant operation is achieved if “Auto kW polarity” is not activated. If this feature is activated, the TRPF-02 works with only kW +ve two quadrants. Thus, with 4 quadrant operations requirements, Auto kW polarity should be kept off. Typical example of 4 quadrant operation is with “Co-Generation Plants” and “Wind-Power Generation”. But with most conventional consumer applications, only +ve KW is seen, where the Auto kW polarity feature can be kept ON.

It can be seen that there are two PF set points to be set in TRPF-02. The Upper and the Lower. TRPF-02 ensures that PFUPPER is never exceeded.

Additionally, “No change band” to minimum KVAR band size equal to smallest bank KVAR X 1.5 ensures no hunting during the low KW loading.

Auto and Manual Operation Modes:

Before Understanding the Parameter Editing, lets understand the two modes of operation. “Auto” and “Manual”

Auto Operation:

Select

2.Auto Operation

On this screen pressing “ENT” key will put the unit in Auto Operation. This mode will continue till alternate operation mode is selected or unit is put in Power down condition.

This is the mode in which the unmanned operation of automatically putting the capacitors in and out of circuit is performed.

This mode should be normally selected with TRPF-02, once the system is totally commissioned.

Here the kVAr compensation values are calculated by TRPF-02 and the closest equivalent capacitor combination is inserted in the system so that the PF is maintained within the desired level. This is as per the kW v/s kVAr graphs shown earlier in PF compensation part.

On the default display, the status of capacitor banks is seen as performed by TRPF-02.

Any TFB (Thyristor switch fault Feed Back) commands from thyristor switches will be considered as that specific capacitor bank is faulty and TRPF-02 will not use this bank for compensation. It will try to use the other capacitor banks to select the best possible combination of the banks to achieve target kVAr. (i.e. target PF).

TRPF-02 assumes that the thyristor switches used are Zero spike current switch On thyristor switches (Like TAS ZCTC or ZCCP). Thus the control command to multiple banks switch ON/OFF can be simultaneous in Auto mode.

3.Manual Opern

  • Pressing “ENT” button on this screen will put TRPF-02 in Manual mode. This mode would continue to run till it is purposefully changed or Power down.

  • This mode is normally used to perform the Operation like:

  • Resetting of faulty banks to healthy status.

  • Checking the Capacitor banks by turning them ON/OFF.

  • Declaring specific bank/s faulty. Masking of the banks so that once auto mode is selected, these faulty declared banks would not be used.

  • For Declaring banks faulty or Resetting faulty banks:

  • In manual mode default screen press “ENT”.

  • The cursor above bank 1 will start blinking. Use  keys to select the specific bank. Then use key to declare the bank faulty.

  • To reset the faulty bank, bring the blinking cursor to that bank and use  key to declare the bank as healthy.

  • Once the specific banks are declared faulty or reset from faulty to a healthy status, press “ENT” key so that cursor stops blinking.

  • For saving the status on permanent basis (so that even after Power down, the status is unchanged), press “SAVE” key. After this save command, the unit will jump back to default mode. (Default as auto or manual is set in edit parameters).

  • For Testing banks with manual On/ Off commands:

  • Press “ENT”, the cursor will start blinking. Use  keys to select the specific bank/s that are healthy and use  key to turn On and use  key to turn Off the capacitor banks. To come out of Manual On/Off edit mode, press “ENT” key so that cursor stops blinking.

Edit Parameters

System

TRPF-02 comes with four different voltage ranges. These are 415V, 240V, 110V and 63.5V. These values are dependent on the hardware provided with the unit and thus these parameters are non-settable.

As explained earlier, 63.5 and 240 voltage modules work in “In-Phase” configuration.

And 110 and 415 voltage modules work in “Quadrature” configuration.

This parameter though non-editable is given so as to inform the user of configuration.

For rated system voltages other than the ones provided in above 4 options, external PT can be put. The ratio of the PT as secondary: primary is to be put here. With no external PT it should be 001.00 ; With 11kV system with 110V secondary PT, this ratio is “100.0”.

This parameter tells the TRPF-02 about the primary current rating of the Grid/Transformer side connected CT.

This parameter is used by TRPF-02 only if the unit is used with the Scheme-3 as explained earlier in the installation guidelines.

The parameter tells TRPF-02 about the primary current rating of Generator side CT.

This parameter tells the TRPF-02 about the secondary current rating of the CTs used by Grid/Transformer (Mains) as well as Generator. There are 2 options available.

“0”: 1Ampare. & “1”: 5Ampare.

This parameter too is not user settable. It is given here for indication that wiring should be connected in “In Phase” or “Quadrature”. This is already explained in the earlier topic.

This is the parameter that is to be used for convenience of commissioning. In case the CT connected or Voltage phases connected are with reverse polarity, TRPF-02 can check the kW sign. If this sign is –ve, and if this parameter is “Enable”, it internally reverses the polarity of CT.

But in some cases, where the system is to be used with 4 quadrant operation, this is not desirable. Under such case this parameter should be set to “Disable”. The typical example of this is with wind-mill operation using Induction Generator.

TRPF-02 can be used Auto or Manual mode. Usually it is used with Auto mode. But in case to be used in manual mode as normal default, the setting ‘1’ here will do the same. At power up too under such case unit will start in Manual mode.

In auto mode, the KVAR to be inserted in the system can be calculated by two methods.

0:(Instant.): On instantaneous value at the moment of compensation.

1:(Mean): On basis of the mean KVAR over a period of one compensation cycle.

The Previous page diagram shows the timing sequence.

Correction time is the time during which there is total inactivity (except measurement) as far as capacitor switching is concerned. This unit is for high speed thyristorised switching. Thus response is fast and thus this is settable in terms of number of mains cycles.

Step Response is given in mains cycles. This is the time lag between the TRPF-02 command and the Capacitor switching mechanism of physically putting capacitors in the circuit. This is programmed depending on Thyristor switches configuration and charged voltages across the capacitors. It also depends on discharge devices as well as detuned reactors % if used.

This is to be set depending on these said parameters.

Recommendations for Thyristorised

Auto-PF control panel.

  • Provide the Discharge resistors across the capacitors. The Discharge resistor value is function of the parameters:

    • Response Time

    • Detuned Reactors % drop value.

    • Thyristor configuration (in line or within delta)

    • Capacitor kVAr value.

    • By taking into account these parameters selection is to be done for appropriate values of these resistors and their wattage.

  • Keep the control command and other control wires (+12V) away from any power wiring. It is recommended to route these control wires in separate channels.

  • Earthing in such electronic panels should be of two types.

  • a) Power Earthing.

  • b) Electronic Earthing.

  • The earth-pits used for such earthing should also be separate.

  • Every thyristor switch should have some minimum clearance recommended by manufacturer from all the sides or any other electrical item. An appropriate cooling arrangement is recommended.

  • If voltage THD is greater than 3.5%, then improve the same by usage of tuned filters first. Otherwise thyristor switches can mal-function.

  • The panel in which these equipments are mounted should protect them from dust and conductive suspended particles.

  • It is recommended to put the Fuses or MCBs/ MCCBs in line with every thyristor switch.

  • It is recommended to put a fixed capacitor bank (without suppression chokes but with fuses ) of 10% rating of the total switched kVAr of the system. This helps in terms of absorbing the line transients and provides additional protection to thyristor switches. This also provides the protection to thyristor switches against dV/dt while mains turn ON. Please note that this is recommended for capacitor panel without detuned reactors used.

  • Avoid touching the electronics of the TRPF-02 or thyristor switches even when they are not energized.

  • Do not use contactor switching capacitor panel or fixed capacitor switching on the same line as where thyristorised capacitor switched panel is installed.

  • Provide the proper cooling arrangement to the panel so that panel internal temperature does not exceed 50°C.

  • Regular cleaning with vacuum cleaner helps giving the everlasting performance.

Not performing this, can result in to a weaker source point for Capacitor charging during Step on and this can generate undesirable Noise which can hamper the performance of equipments installed in the capacitor panel.

3.Load Feed Back CT connection.

Ensure that the load feed back CT connections are done properly and the CT is inserted in proper phase as per the scheme selected and with proper polarity. Also ensure that the CT is shorted using the shorting facility provided in the panel.

CT connections to be done carefully so as to ensure that the wire does not get open and there is no loose connection.

Loose connection’s or open CT secondary can result in to very high voltages getting developed in the circuit which can damage the CT and also produce high levels of noise in the system.

4.Neutral & Earth connections.(applicable for panel with 3phase 4 wire system)

Ensure that the neutral and earth connections are done properly.

The Panel should not be powered on till it is confirmed that the neutral & earth connections are proper.

- 51 -


Operations manual trpf 02 thyristor switching pf controller

To ensure proper neutral and earth connections follow the instructions below:

·Remove the power connection to the Controller.

·Remove all control Fuses in the panel.

·Switch off all MCB’s /remove fuses for capacitors in the panel.

·Switch on the incoming MCCB/SFU/ACB in the panel.

·Measure the three phase voltages w.r.t. Neutral, The three phase voltages should be in the range of +10% of the rated Line-Neutral value.

·Measure the voltage at the earth terminal w.r.t. Neutral, This voltage should be less than 5V ac.

·Measure the three phase voltages w.r.t. Earth , The three phase voltages should be in the range of +10% of the rated Line-Neutral value.

· In case any of the above measured voltages are out of the specified range, switch OFF the MCCB, check and rectify the wiring and then repeat the procedure.

The controller and the control sections should not be powered up till the Neutral and Earth connection’s are proper to avoid permanent damage to the controller, contactor coils, fans and other equipment’s in the panel.

The Power connections are to be done, at the Source side, in a way that the wire’s are not accidentally disconnected. If required, use proper labels on the wires to identify them.

Commissioning Instructions :

After the panel is powered up.

  • Remove the fuses in series with every capacitor bank. Connect the supply to the controller. Keep the load feedback and capacitor current feedback in shorted condition.

  • Turn On the supply to the panel and set Date/time, zero offset and various other parameters as per the panel configuration. Its important to understand the meaning of every parameter from the instructions given before and then put the appropriate values in them. Wrong values entered can give the wrong performance of the panel.

  • Once the parameterisation is complete, put the TRPF-02 in Manual mode to check every bank command is transmitted to the switch. This can be observed by checking that On command is reaching the specific thyristor switch. Use dc voltage measuring meter for this.

  • Once all the switches are seen to be getting the correct commands, switch off the supply to the panel and replace all the fuses (or turn on MCBs if they are provided instead of fuses). Turn on the panel.

5. Put TRPF-02 back in Manual mode and turn ON/Off the individual steps. Use tong tester (ac current measurement) to check that current in all the three phase of the corresponding bank are OK. If individual phase compensation is used, then check with only corresponding phase.

In case any thyristor switch is giving fault feedback, check the cause and rectify the same.

6. Keep all the banks in off mode. Remove the short of Load feedback CT. In case KW value is seen as –ve, CT is with wrong polarity. Either select “Auto KW Polarity chk” in Enable mode or change CT polarity.

7. Remove the capacitor feedback CT short. Put controller front display screen in Capacitor current measurement display. Now turn ON the capacitor banks one by one and observe that capacitor current increases as per the rating of the steps. Turn ON all the banks to see that almost full rated current flows through the capacitors.

8. Switch OFF all the banks manually and put the TRPF-02 in Automatic mode. Observe the panel performance for a period of about 2hrs after the commissioning.

Serial Communication Protocols – TAS/01

Communication Protocol TAS/01, is specifically designed for the

point-to-point OR point-to-multipoint communication systems. These protocols will be normally used by the smaller equipments and is very simple to handle. Protocols are useful in only single “Master” configurations. The “Slave” units can be one or more.

Maximum data information that can be sent in one telegram is restricted to 10 bytes of Hexadecimal numbers. (D1 to D10).

Structure:

STX – Start of Text – character: ☻in ASCII format. Value is 02HEX.

ETX – End of Text – character: ♥ in ASCII format. Value is 03HEX.

ID(no.)– Identification byte. (no.)defines the decimal place of byte.

P – Parameter.

AD(no.) – Address byte. (no.) defines the decimal place of byte.

DL – Data length in terms of hex byte specifying (no.) in D – data.

D(no.)M – Data byte MSB nibble equivalent of D(no.).

D(no.)L – Data byte LSB nibble equivalent of D(no.).

CS – Check Serial-communication Redundancy check byte.

NOTE:All the bytes used are in ASCII format and other than STX, ETX, P and CS, all the characters are within the range of 0 to 9 and A to F only.

Operations manual trpf 02 thyristor switching pf controller

Detailed Description:

(Nos indicated with subscription ASC is Decimal number whose ASCII character will be in that byte. Nos indicated with subscription DEC, are the Decimal numbers and Nos. indicated with subscription HEX, are the Hexadecimal numbers.)

ID(no.)

Is a Six byte long Decimal number. This decimal number is first to be converted to its equivalent BCD (Binary Coded Decimal). Then Units place is given no. D0, Tens place is given no. D1 and so on. Maximum length of ID code is six digits. I.e. from D0 to D5.

It should be noted that if ID used is only 4 digits long then the higher up digits should be inserted with ASCII character ‘0’ = 30HEX.

So in that case D4 and D5 = ASCII char ‘0’ = 30HEX = 48ASC.

The range of all the characters for ID is

ASCII char ‘0’= 30HEX = 48ASC.

To

ASCII char ‘9’= 39HEX = 57ASC.

Here the range of ASCII char ‘A’ to ‘F’ is not permissible. This is because ID is only an integer and thus cannot hold the Hexadecimal numbers.

AD(no.)

Is a 16DEC bits long, hexadecimal number. This hexadecimal number points to the memory location in the “Slave” units. This address which is 2 bytes in length in Hex. format is split into four nibbles. Then every nibble character is converted to its ASCII equivalent.

e.g.

Say the address location in “Slave” unit that is required to be sent over this serial protocol is : 3A0DHEX , which of-course is two byte or sixteen bit long number. This number is separated out into four nibbles as 03HEX, 0AHEX, 00HEX and 0DHEX. Then they are converted to their ASCII equivalent numbers.

- 64 -


Operations manual trpf 02 thyristor switching pf controller

So that final values in the frame that is sent has;

AD3 = ASCII char ‘3’ = 33HEX = 51ASC.

AD2 = ASCII char ‘A’ = 41HEX = 65ASC.

AD1 = ASCII char ‘0’ = 30HEX = 48ASC.

AD0 = ASCII char ‘D’ = 44HEX = 68ASC.

P – parameter.

This byte can take any ASCII char from ‘A’ to ‘Z’.

Probably, the most important byte of the string.

This is used for defining the type of information that is required to be given to the units under communication.

e.g.

This byte can be:

ASCII char ‘S’ = 53HEX = 83ASC.Can mean for the units under communication as “Status Enquiry”.

Or

ASCII char ‘C’ = 43HEX = 67ASC.Can mean for the units under communication as “Command information”.

But the meaning of these ASCII characters will depend on every different type of “Slave” unit. Say if the “Slave” unit is “Energy meter” that uses Tas/01 protocols, the meanings of characters in “P” can be different than that if the other “Slave” unit is “Power factor controller” that uses the same Tas/01 protocols.

DL

This byte gives the information about the length of the data bytes that are being sent on the string.

As the maximum number of data information that can be sent by this protocol per string is 0AHEX = 10DEC. The value that is taken by this byte in a string can be ASCII equivalent of Hex number from 00HEX to OAHEX. i.e. it can be ASCII char ‘0’ = 30HEX = 48DEC, or ASCII char ‘1’, or ASCII char ‘2’ and so on up-to ASCII char ‘9’ and then ASCII char ‘A’, depending on the length of the data information given in D1 to D10.

Operations manual trpf 02 thyristor switching pf controller

e.g.

If ten bytes of data information is required to be sent then

DL = ASCII char ‘A’ = 41HEX = 65DEC.

And

If zero bytes of data information is to be sent then

DL = ASCII char ‘0’ = 30HEX = 48DEC.

D(no.)

These are the data information bytes.

This part of the string is variable in length and thus earlier defined DL byte gives the information on the same.

The maximum information that can be sent per string can be maximum ten bytes.

Every byte of data that is to be sent is divided into two nibbles. Then every nibble is converted into its ASCII equivalent.

e.g.

Say information on Data byte D3 is to be sent is 7EHEX. Then it is divided into two bytes with Hex value as 07HEX and 0EHEX. Then these bytes are converted to its ASCII equivalent characters. They are stored as:

D3M = ASCII char ‘7’ = 37HEX = 55ASC.

D3L = ASCII char ‘E’ = 45HEX = 69ASC.

Example: Overall relation between DL & D(no.)M/L .:

The data that is required to be sent is three bytes long,

Say D1 = FEHEX = 254DEC.

D2 = 5CHEX = 094DEC.

D3 = 98HEX = 152DEC.

Then the length of the data is 03HEX bytes long.

So, here DL = ASCII char ‘3’ = 33HEX = 51ASC.

D1M = ASCII char ‘F’ = 46HEX = 70ASC.

D1L = ASCII char ‘E’ = 45HEX = 69ASC.

D2M = ASCII char ‘5’ = 35HEX = 53ASC.

D2L = ASCII char ‘C’ = 43HEX = 67ASC.

D3M = ASCII char ‘9’ = 39HEX = 57ASC.

D3L = ASCII char ‘8’ = 38HEX = 56ASC.

STX

Start of Text – ASCII char ‘☻’ = 02ASC.

This is always fixed for TAS/01 protocols and cannot be changed.

ETX

End of Text – ASCII char ‘♥’ = 03ASC.

This too is fixed for TAS/01 protocols and cannot be changed.

CS

Communication Redundancy Check (CRC) byte.

This byte is for ensuring the reliability of communication and is highly recommended to be used by “Master” and “Slave”.

The calculation / verification of the byte is being done with the following formulas.

CS = XOR ing the bytes in the final ASCII format string.

= XOR [ID5, ID4, ID….---,P, AD1, AD0, DL, D(no.)L/M] .

(STX and ETX is never considered for CRC calculation).
