Design manufacture transport and integration on site in chile of alma antennas main axes drives

  • Design, Manufacture, Transport and Integration on-site in Chile of ALMA Antennas

  • MAIN AXES DRIVES

  • PM#06 18-19 July 2006


Design manufacture transport and integration on site in chile of alma antennas main axes drives

  • Antenna Drives Solution

  • Linear Direct Drives

  • Motors Performances:

  • (*) Corresponding “ to drive the antennas to stow in a rainfall rate of 2 cm/hr, with a snow accumulation of 50kg/m2 in the reflector…”

  • (**) Corresponding “ to drive the antennas to stow in a rainfall rate of 2 cm/hr, with a snow accumulation of 41kg/m2 in the reflector…”

Main implementations in order to increase torque performances

  • Optimization of wiring (losses reduction)

  • Analysis of possible substitution of PTC sensors system

  • Increase of IP protection degree on AZ axis

  • Optimized electronic solution (Drive on board) with

    • Only DC bus from power supply unit (on switchboard) to sectors

    • Reduction of EMC and harmonics/resonances (possible over-voltages disturbances)

    • Increase availability of system
