Electrostatically sensitive devices (ESD)

Electrostatically sensitive devices (ESD)


Caution
Electronic modules contain electrostatically sensitive devices that can easily be
destroyed if they are incorrectly handled. However, if your work does involve the
handling of such devices, please observe the following information:

Electronics modules should not be touched unless work has to be carried-out


on them.

If it is essential for you to touch an electronic module, make sure that your
body is electrostatically discharged beforehand.

Modules may not be allowed to come into contact with electrically insulating
materials such as plastic foil, insulating table tops or clothing made of synthetic
fibers.

Modules may only be placed on electrically conducting surfaces.

Modules and electronic components should always be packed in electrically


conducting containers (such as metallized plastic boxes or metal canisters)
before being stored or shipped.

If packing containers are used which are not conductive, modules and boards
must first be wrapped in a conducting material. Examples of such materials
include electrically conducting foam rubber or household aluminum foil.

For easy reference, the protective measures necessary when handling electrostatic
sensitive devices are illustrated in the sketches below:

Safety and application instructions and information for drive converters

Edition 07.2001

Safety and application instructions and


information for drive converters
Safety and application information for drive converters
(according to: The Low-Voltage Directive 73/23/EC)
SIMOVERT MV drive converters are medium-voltage drive converters. However,
they use components which are subject to the Directives for low-voltage devices
and equipment. These include auxiliaries as well as open-loop and closed-loop
control components.
1. General information
During operation, in accordance with their degree of protection, drive converters
can have parts and components which are live (under voltage), bare and which are
moving or rotating; they can also have hot surfaces.
There is a potential danger of severe personnel injury or significant material
damage if the required covers are inadmissibly removed, if the equipment is
incorrectly used or it has been incorrectly installed or controlled.
Please refer to the documentation for additional information.
Only suitably qualified, trained personnel may be used to transport, install and
commission as well as service/maintain the equipment (observe IEC 364 and
CENELEC HD 384 or DIN VDE 0100 and IEC Report 664 or DIN VDE 0110 and
the domestic accident prevention regulations).
Qualified, trained personnel in the sense of this basic safety information are
personnel who are knowledgeable about the installation, mounting, commissioning
and operation of the product and are suitably qualified for the activities which they
carry-out.
2. Correct use
Drive converters are components which are designed to be installed in electrical
plants or machines.
When they are installed in machines, it is not permissible to commission the drive
converter (i.e. go into correct operation), until it has been clearly identified that the
machine is in full compliance with the regulations specified in EC Directive
89/392/EC (Machinery Directive); EN 60204 must be observed.
Commissioning (i.e. go into correct operation) is only permitted if the EMC Directive
is maintained (89/336/EC).
The drive converters fulfill the requirements of the Low-Voltage Directive 73/23/EC.
The harmonized Standards, series EN 50178/DIN VDE 0160 in conjunction with
EN 60439-1/DIN VDE 0660 Part 500 and EN 60146/DIN VDE 0558 are applied for
the drive converter.
The technical data as well as the data on the supply/connection conditions should
be taken from the rating plate and the documentation. It is important that this data
is carefully maintained.
3. Transport, storage
The information/instructions for transport, storage and correct handling of the drive
converter must be carefully observed.
Climatic conditions must be maintained in compliance with EN 50178.
4. Mounting
The drive converters must be installed and cooled corresponding to the
specifications in the associated documentation.
The drive converters must be protected against inadmissible stressing. Especially
during transport and handling, it is not permissible that components are bent and/or
insulating/isolating clearances changed. Electronic components and contacts
should not be touched.

Safety and application information for drive converters

Drive converters contain components which can be destroyed by electrostatic


discharge if they are incorrectly handled. It is not permissible that electrical
components are mechanically damaged or destroyed (under certain circumstances
this can represent a health hazard!).
5. Electrical connection
When working with drive converters which are powered-up (under voltage), the
relevant domestic accident prevention regulations for the particular country must
be carefully observed (e.g. VBG 4).
The drive converters must be electrically installed in full compliance with the
relevant regulations (e.g. cable cross-sections, fuses and protective devices,
protective conductor connection). More detailed information and instructions are
provided in the documentation.
Information for EMC correct installation - such as shielding, grounding,
arrangement and location of filters and routing cables - is provided in the drive
converter documentation. These instructions should always be observed, also for
drive converters with CE label. The manufacturer of the plant or machine is
responsible in ensuring that the limit values, specified by the EMC legislation, are
maintained.
6. Operation
Plants and systems, in which the drive converters are installed, must, if required,
be provided with additional monitoring and protective devices in accordance with
the valid safety regulations, e.g. legislation regarding equipment, accident
prevention regulations etc.
After the drive converter has been disconnected and isolated from the supply, it is
not permissible that conductive equipment components and power connections are
immediately touched due to capacitors which are possibly charged. In this case,
the appropriate labels on the drive converter must be carefully observed.
All of the covers and doors must be kept closed during operation.
7. Service and maintenance
The manufacturer documentation must be observed.
These safety instructions and information must be kept in a safe place!

Regular (preventive) service/maintenance


Warning
Voltages of over 1000 Volt (medium voltage!) can be present when this drive
converter is operational. This can result in death or severe bodily injury. This is the
reason that extreme care must be taken when working on or with the drive
converter. Please carefully observe the following warning information/instructions:
Before starting any work on the drive converter, the following five safety rules,
according to DIN VDE 0100, must be carefully maintained:

Five safety rules


Before starting any work:
1. Disconnect from the supply
2. Secure against re-closure
3. Check that the equipment really is
in a no-voltage condition
4. Ground and short-circuit
5. Cover or partition-off adjacent
parts and components which
are under voltage (live)

Regulation label according to DIN 40 008


Only qualified personnel may work on or with the drive converter or parts of it.
All work carried-out on the drive converter and its installation must be carried-out in
full compliance with the domestic electrical regulations (in Germany: VBG4) and
the local regulations in accordance with the appropriate specifications. This also
means that the drive converter cabinet must be correctly grounded (studs) and it
must ensured that no freely accessible part of the equipment is at line supply
potential or at any other hazardous voltage potential.

SIMOVERT MV Maintenance Instructions

Edition 07.2001

1 Regular (preventive) service/maintenance

Warning
It is especially important to observe the following: Significant energy levels
are stored in the drive converter DC link (capacitors).
Even after the drive converter has been powered-down, hazardous voltages
can be present, even for a longer period of time.
Before coming into contact with any part of the equipment, carefully check that
the DC link busbars are actually in a no-voltage condition! For example, for
fault trips, voltages can be present as long as the motor is rotating.
The voltage DC link can also be charged from other components. Before
coming into contact or touching any live component, it is absolutely imperative
that the DC link is checked to ensure that it actually is in a no-voltage
condition.
Become knowledgeable as to how the drive converter is incorporated in the
overall power-on and power-off circuits.
Please observe all of the information and instructions in this Section and on the
product itself.
If these rules are not observed, this can result in death, severe bodily injury and
significant material damage.

Additional information and instructions regarding maintenance work


Before working on the drive converter, the following points must be fulfilled:
1. The plant-side circuit-breaker must be opened and secured against reclosure.
To realize this, the drive converter must be isolated from the supply by
withdrawing the circuit-breaker or by opening a disconnector.
2. The DC link voltage must have decreased to 0 V. The DC link voltage display
on the OP7 operator panel can be used to check this. However in order to be
absolutely certain, a suitable high-voltage test instrument must be used to
check the drive converter input, the drive converter output and the DC link (DC
voltage!) to ensure that they actually are in a no-voltage condition. The
spherical studs are the test points for the DC link voltage (refer to Fig. 1.1). After
it has been clearly identified that the drive converter is in a no-voltage condition,
using the high-voltage test equipment, the DC link voltage should be checked
using a multimeter. If the crowbar thyristor is not triggered, the DC link voltage
is charged to approx. 80 to 100 V (from the GSV power supply). The DC link
voltage can be brought to 0 V by opening the safety circuit (emergency off,
opening the cabinet doors, so that the crowbar thyristor is triggered) or by
powering-down power supply GSV (opening the motor protection circuit-breaker
F90 or Q90).
3. Only after the DC link has been completely discharged (0 V) (check using a
multimeter), must it be short-circuit and grounded using a suitable grounding
harness.
4. The rear section of the control cabinet belongs to the power section. This
accommodates the pre-charging equipment, the crowbar thyristor with gating
circuit and components associated with the insulation monitoring.

5. When carrying-out work on or in the control cabinet it must be observed that


there is no central breaker for the auxiliary power supply (400 V / 230 V). Even
if all of the motor protection circuit-breakers and m.c.b.s are opened, voltage is
still present at its inputs. The equipment can only be safely shutdown if the
upstream auxiliary power supply on the plant side can be powered-down.

Caution
The electronic modules contain components which can be destroyed by
electrostatic discharge. These components can be easily destroyed if they are
incorrectly handled.
When carrying-out any work, it is important that the ESDS protective measures are
maintained. If this is not observed, there is a danger that the components could be
electrically destroyed which would have a negative impact on the functioning of the
drive converter.

Comments
Slight, dry and non-conductive dirt is permissible.
Accumulated dirt, which has occurred due to dust
in conjunction with a high air humidity, must be
removed. It is especially important that the
surfaces of the semiconductors, the insulating
studs and fabric-base laminate of the lowinductance busbar assemblies are clean and dry.
A dry, clean cloth must be used to wipe down all
of the surfaces in the cabinet. In this case, care
must be taken that the dirt is not simply
distributed, but is actually removed by continually
changing the surface of the cloth which is being
used. Cleaning cloths must be manufactured out
of a non-fleece material.
Cloths dipped in ethyl alcohol (it is not
permissible that the cloth becomes saturated)
can be used to remove higher levels of dirt. Also
here, the cloth must be frequently changed so
that the accumulated dirt is not simply distributed.
A brush and vacuum cleaner can be used to
clean inaccessible locations using dry
compressed air (max. 1 bar).
NOTE
Under no circumstances may fiber-optic cable
and fiber-optic cable bundles be cleaned using
moist cloths or similar. If there is a significant
amount of dust, this must be removed using a
dry, non-fleecing cloth.

/ 55V 100kHz ( standard operation ).
The red LEDs have the same designation as the appropriate output terminal ( X..)
and indicate if the appropriate output has been shutdown due to an overcurrent
condition ( -LED is bright ).
After a fault has occurred, the unit can only be powered-up again after the input
voltage has been switched-out and switched-in again using F90 or Q90.

Input voltage
The input voltage is monitored for undervoltage and overvoltage.
For an undervoltage condition (< 170 ...175 V), the green OK LED goes dark.
The system automatically restarts after the input voltage has increased to
approx. 190 V.
For overvoltage (> approx. 265 V), the red FAULT LED is bright.

Output voltages
All of the output voltages are monitored for an undervoltage condition (e.g. due to
overload/short-circuit).
If the 5 V output voltage drops to < 4.7 ... 4.85 V for t > 100 to 200 s, the red
FAULT LED is bright. The system does not automatically restart; the line supply
voltage must first be disconnected.
If the 15 V output voltage drops to < approx. 14 V or > 14 V, the red FAULT
LED is bright. The 5 V voltage remains and a system failure message is output.

Replacing components
Warning
When operational, over 1000 Volt (medium voltage!) can be present at this drive
converter. This can result in death or severe bodily injury. Extreme care must be
taken when working on the equipment.
It is imperative that the warning information and instructions in Section 1 are
carefully observed!

Caution
The electronic modules contain components which can be destroyed by
electrostatic discharge. These components can be easily destroyed if they are
incorrectly handled.
When carrying-out any work, it is important that the ESDS protective measures are
maintained. If this is not observed, there is a danger that the components could be
electrically destroyed which would have a negative impact on the functioning of the
drive converter.

Note
The HV-IGBTs used (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) are also components
which can be destroyed by electrostatic discharge. These components can be
easily destroyed when incorrectly handled. All of the information and instructions
above should also be observed for the HV-IGBTs in order to avoid damaging the
drive converter and to ensure that it continues to function correctly.
Furthermore, before transporting the equipment, the gate and emitter connections
of the HV-IGBTs must always be short-circuited.

Warning
When working on the drive converter it should be observed that the minimum
bending radii for water hoses of r = 80 mm should not be fallen below.

Caution
When working on the drive converter it should be ensured that the minimum
bending radii for fiber-optic cables of r = 30 mm is not fallen below.
Fiber-optic cables are sensitive to pressure which means that they must be
carefully handled.
The fiber-optic cables can be destroyed if this information is not carefully observed.

Cooling water
When operational, the conductivity of the cooling water in the drive converter is
automatically kept at the required value using the ion exchanger in the cooling
system. If the drive converter cooling water was drained, e.g. due to repair work,
then only de-ionized water must be used to re-fill it (data, refer to the Description
of SIMOVERT MV).
The de-ionized water is filled through the cooling system.
A vent valve is provided at each vertical group pipe to vent the water circuit in the
drive converter.
Caution
When venting the drive converter it is not permissible that water sprays or drops
onto the drive converter components. Before the drive converter is powered-up, it
must be completely dry.
A hose (8 mm diameter) must be screwed onto the vent valve (a connection is
provided on the valve) to vent air from the system. Use a container to catch any
water.
Refer to the Commissioning Instructions for the measures which are required to recommission the drive converter (purge and vent reduce the conductivity
coefficient).
If the drive converter was accidentally filled with normal raw water, then the drive
converter may not be powered-up. Drain the water and remove any residual raw
water from all of the pipes and heatsinks by blowing nitrogen through the complete
system.

3.5.1

Draining the system

De-ionized water circuit


Warning
Please observe the safety information and instructions before draining the system
(protect eyes, hands and body)! The system may only be emptied with the pumps
stationary and the voltages disconnected.
The de-ionized water circuit is emptied using the two drain valves in the cooling
system. These are located at the lowest position in both the intake and return. After
a suitable hose or similar is connected to the valve, the valve must be slowly
opened so that the pressure can slowly and continually decrease. All of the ball
valves in the de-ionized water circuit must be open. The vent valve at the
equalization reservoir must be open. After a short time, the vents in the pipes must
be opened. After the system has been emptied, all of the connections and vents
must be correctly closed again.

link voltage and the drive converter was tripped (powereddown).
The kinetic buffering function (KIP) must be enabled with P620
= 1. During brief line supply faults, the KIP maintains the DC
link voltage at a setpoint specified by P622. The drive slowly
brakes. If the line supply fault lasts for a longer period of time,
the drive can be braked down to standstill. In this case, KIP
shuts down with fault.
If the automatic restart function WEA is also enabled, then this
attempts to power-up the drive again.
If the WEA is not enabled, the drive remains in the "Fault"

Drive converter protection IGBT or IGBT gating fault

Description:

At least one IGBT or one IGBT gating circuit has signaled a


fault condition. The drive converter has shutdown with a fault
and is no longer ready. For parallel circuit configurations, this
only involves system A.

Caution
When operational, over 1000 Volt (medium voltage!) can be present at this drive
converter. This can result in death or severe bodily injury. Extreme care must be
taken when working on the equipment.
It is imperative that the warning information and instructions in Section 1 are
carefully observed!

Causes:

Remedy:
The semiconductor involved is displayed on the OP7 in
the semiconductor diagnostics menu.

Defective IGBT gating.


Defective fiber-optic cable.
Defective IGBT.

The following measures should be carried-out in this


sequence:

Disconnect and ground.

Check the connection between A200-D02-A2-X2 and


A300.

Power-down the complete power supply voltage.


The DC link voltage must be 0V.

Short-circuit both DC link halves and ground.

Power-up the complete auxiliary power supply again.

Check the green LED (H1) on the gating module of


all IGBT modules of a phase: They must be bright
and then the 55V/50kHz power supply voltage is o.k.

Continuation

Carry-out the following on all IGBT modules of the phase


involved:

Remove the connector with the fiber-optic cable, and


using a narrow-beam spotlight or preferably with a
laser pointer, illuminate socket U3 of the gating
module (receiver section).

Beforehand, transmitter section U1 must have been


powered-up ( red light ) which must now go-out (go
dark).

112

At the same time, the yellow LED H2 must go bright


and the green LED H1 must go dark. (Point 4. also
applies for the IGBT modules used as center point
diodes. In this case, before the test, the plugs over
U3 must first be removed. Do not forget to re-insert
the plugs after the test has been completed!)

Siemens AG 6SE8001-0CJ76
SIMOVERT MV Maintenance Instructions

Edition 07.2001

Causes:

5 Fault and alarm messages

Remedy:

Power-down the GSV power supply -G90 using -Q90.

Check all of the modules of the involved phase using


a diode tester or a multimeter in the Diode test
setting: The IGBT module must block from
C to E. However, due to the fact that the DC link is
short-circuited it is possible that several diodes are
measured in series. In any case, a diode function
must be measured between E and C. 0 Ohm always
means that the module is defective.

Carry-out the following on all of the modules of the


phase involved:
Measure the resistance between gate / X102 and
emitter / X103 on the gating module. The resistance
must be several kOhm. The module is defective if the
resistance is close to 0.

If defective IGBTs or gating circuits are identified,


then the complete Powercard must be replaced. It
is not permissible to replace individual gating
circuits or IGBTs!
For 3.3kV and 4.16kV drive converters, two IGBTs
are connected in series. Also here, the following
applies: The Powercards of the IGBTs, connected
in series, must be replaced together, and not just
the Powercard associated with the defective IGBT.
The Powercards involved should be identified using
the circuit diagrams.
