Diagnostics and monitoring of microprocessor-controlled excitation power supply unit for synchronous motors.
No. 1(529) 2017, pp. 19-25
This article presents a excitation power supply unit for synchronous motors with a microprocessor control system. The theoretical basics of reactive power regulation with a synchronous motor and influence of load on the permissible operating range are discussed. The possibilities of controlling the motor by a microprocessor system in the developed device during asynchronous start-up and synchronous operation are presented. The ability to monitor and record the status of the drive, which allows us to analyze the sequence of events in case of emergencies, is also presented. Dedicated software for diagnostic and service operation is demonstrated. The selected diagnostic functionality is also discussed.
