Motor duty UPS is capable of delivering the high starting current demand of the induction motor. Bypass power supply is synchronized with the UPS output (via static bypass switch) to provide the additional current during motor starting. In most of the cases, motor is started only when the main supply is available. This helps in optimizing the UPS rating. Battery backup is used to keep the motor running in the event of power failure until the alternate power supply comes online. Hence in my op ...

The electrical engineer doing the analysis, evaluation, and application of the surge protection of the power system surge protection must be very well experienced on all the aspects and issues involved in the system surge protection because the system is a variety of system configuration - overhead, underground, combination of overhead and underground; a variety of source connections. Near substations (small or large), near generating stations (small or large) near switching stations (small o ...

Every motor type (synchronous, squirrel cage and wound rotor induction, direct current, permanent magnet, linear, switched reluctance, etc.) all have a "sweet spot" in terms of efficiency. Some are designed to work well at low- to moderate-power ratings and high speed; others are best suited for high-power and slow speeds.

Most low-power motors are designed to operate against fairly simple load torque profiles; this means they can be optimized quite readily because there isn't much ...

When using a standard DOL (direct on line starter), star delta starter or even n liquid starter standard bearings in the motor is not a problem. When using a Soft Starter or VFD it is recommended that bearings are insulated. This is to prevent rotor/bearing racking which could result in a direct short. But in the event where a none insulated motor is available it could be used as a short term option. Unfortuna ...

ProfiBus is on a 2 wire RS485 platform with different protocol communication layers that actually define ProfiBus. It's widely used in Europe & Asia for industrial applications. Field communication bus, allows you to enhance the number of devices controlled by for example a PLC. It can be described as a serial network were every device connected to it has an ID number, and a range of inputs and outputs, these ranges are normally defined when creating your hardware configuration, and the d ...

This question is a little more complex than it seems on the surface. Let's start with understanding the reason you believe you need to provide some form of braking in the first place. Do you need to stop very quickly under either normal or emergency stop conditions? Does your process need to be able to decelerate quickly when changing from a higher speed to a lower speed? If none of these conditions exist you may not need to provide any form of braking at all. The system friction and windage ...
