Power Supply PSS Certification


Pss certification
PSS Certification

  • PSS test conducted twice a year to verify operation of PSS enables and operation

  • ARC1 Fails PSS certification. Will not turn off when PSS signal is disabled

  • Power Supply computer indicates that off signal has been sent, but hardwired signal indicates that Main Contactor is not de-energized. PSS will not drop to OFF/Safe status

  • Main contactor disables after a while, and problem is not easily repeatable.




Failure analysis
Failure Analysis

  • Main Contactor is sticking and does not decouple when control voltage is disabled.

  • Investigation finds that Auxiliary contacts have been attached onto Main contactor using screws that were too long

  • Long screws break through Bakelite material and small pieces onto rails of the armature assembly of the Main Contactor. This may have contributed to some of the “stickiness”, but not conclusive.







Corrective actions
Corrective Actions

  • ALL power supplies with Auxiliary contacts have been checked for correct screw lengths.

  • 9 Additional Supplies found to have incorrect screw length and minute debris in the Main Contactor

  • All Contactors cleaned, voltage tested and replaced

  • Additionally, power supply schematics are being revised for quicker diagnostics in the future


Lessons learned
Lessons Learned

  • Changes or additions to existing equipment must be fully analyzed for correct configuration

  • Non-routine tasks must be evaluated before work is conducted

  • Test all equipment before installing

  • Update schematics
