ABB Electrification Solutions
MNS
The MNS is an industrial low voltage switchgear and motor control centre
platform suitable for all applications such as metal, pulp and paper,
chemical, oil and gas, power plants, offshore and marine installations, as
well as where the requirement is to guarantee maximum safety standards,
together with plant availability, flexibility and maintenance simplicity.
Footprint optimisation is guaranteed by the possibility of having both front
and rear access configurations, with or without stacked air circuit
breakers. Wall standing and back-to-back installations complete the offer.
The MNS platform is designed to comply with maximum safety standards
in order to minimise personnel risks, even in case of incorrect operations
with both passive and active protections.
MNS Digital
MNS Digital is a scalable, modular, low-voltage smart switchgear with
connected intelligent features that enable remote operation, monitoring MNS Rear Access
and condition-based maintenance.
MNS Digital can connect to the ABB Ability cloud platform or to a local
SCADA system. Fully leveraging ABB Ability, MNS Digital offers
customers insights into their operation by making data and information
available to any connected device or plant.
MNS Digital can connect to the ABB Ability platform via the MNS Digital
smart devices in the switchgear. The uploaded signal data can then be
interpreted by applying Big Data methods. This will enable predictive
capabilities, so instead of post-mortem analysis, ABB Ability enables
higher availability and optimised operating cost.
MNS-Up
MNS-Up innovation integrates uninterrupted power supply (UPS) and
switchgear technologies into a single and compact system. The system
comprises ABB’s Conceptpower DPA 500 UPS and ABB’s MNS
switchgear with Emax2 circuit breakers. MNS-Up’s modular design
expands in 100 kW steps so that companies just pay as they grow. Each
frame of the system can support up to five 100 kW UPS modules and up MNS Front Access
to six frames can combine to provide 3 MW of backup power supply. For
more power, further systems can be installed in parallel.
ABB can install MNS-Up in whatever configuration works best in the
space available – L-shape, U-shape, straight lines or back-to-back – and
all without external bus ducts or cables. By integrating proven UPS and
switchgear technologies into a single, modular system, MNS-Up saves
space, time and money.
MNS-Up enables users to save up to 10% capital in electrical
infrastructure. It requires up to 30% less space compared to traditional
architectures and can be up and running as much as 20% faster due to
reduced installation and commissioning time.
MNS PDU
Based on the MNS front access design, key to the success of the ABB PDU
is the flexibility it provides to the Data Centre Operator by allowing Single
Pole Solid Neutral (SPN), Single Pole Switched Neutral (SPSN), 3 or 4 pole
modules of different current ratings to be mixed and matched in the same
PDU. The safe working whilst live removes the need to power down even MNS-Up
when adding, removing or extending the number of outgoing ways.
When the process of the Data Centre changes, the PDU has the ability
to change with the process; this flexibility provides huge operational cost
savings. ABB PDUs have been in service for over 25 years and during
this time they have been re-configured to meet the ever changing needs
of the Data Centre Operator.
Commercial Switchgear
ABB is completing its portfolio with sub distribution switchboard solutions
designed to optimise cost and dimensions for all the lower performance
requirements.
Package Substations
ABB places particular emphasis on packaging the key elements of an
installations power requirement such as MV Switchgear, Transformers
and LV Switchgear. By utilising low energy and compact devices housed
in systems that are tried and tested to the latest national and international
standards, ABB can offer solutions to meet the most stringent of power
requirements including Packaged and Containerised solutions. MNS PDU

6 - Power Factor Correction Equipment
Power Capacitors Limited
Power Capacitors Limited is “Power Factor Correction” having specialised in all
aspects of power quality since 1973.
Power Capacitors Ltd supplies capacitors for Power Factor Correction,
Harmonic Filters and Power Electronics applications to Industrialists, Equipment
Manufacturers, Electricity Supply Companies and Contractors alike.

Quality – Second to None


Working within the policies of BS EN ISO 9001:2008 approval,
all equipment is manufactured and tested to all appropriate
standards.

Power Factor Correction – Multiple Benefits


Power Factor Correction, when correctly specified, completely removes the
charges levied on consumers with a poor power factor, and the savings
achieved can amount to many thousands of pounds a year. The reduction in
loading on electrical distribution equipment increases supply capacity, reduces
losses and also reduces CO2 emissions.

Capacitor Products – Total Capability


The comprehensive range of capacitor products available enables almost every
requirement for power factor correction to be satisfied by a standard product.
Where a solution does not already exist, our specialist engineers are able to
offer a custom solution, designed specially around a particular set of
requirements.

Automatic Systems
To meet the diverse needs of ALL industries and applications, Power Capacitors
has developed three distinct ranges of automatic PFC systems:

PowerCab - BlueLine

range offers the most robust solution bar none for the most demanding
applications, with the emphasis on performance and extended lifetime.

PowerCab - GreenLine
Intended for the ‘Standard Industrial’ application, the GreenLine range provides
the simplest solution to whatever Power Factor Correction scheme is required.
With standard ratings available to over 500kVAr in a single cubicle, the compact
dimensions enable us to meet constraints our competitors cannot.

EnviroCab
The EnviroCab range offers a technically compliant and cost-effective solution
to smaller equipment requirements. Ratings from 10kVAr to 75kVAr meet the
most cost-sensitive requirements in ways our competitors can’t match.

Better Components = Lower Losses


By using better specified components across the whole range of designs, Power Technical Support & Site Services
Capacitors’ equipment has lower losses than its competitors.
The services performed by the company’s specialist engineers include:
This difference can amount to a significant financial saving, for example, a
300kVAr detuned system from one of the ‘market leading’ PFC companies ● Power Factor Surveys performed free of charge on the UK mainland
would cost over £350 per annum more to operate than our BlueLine system. ● Load Profiling with report & recommendations
Where cost of ownership is more important than a low initial purchase price, ● Harmonic Surveys with full technical report & recommendations
Power Capacitors offers the optimum solution. ● Installation of Capacitor Equipment

energy stored within the KIN flywheel is transferred to the rotor by using
a controlled electromagnetic field which will build up between the flywheel
and the shaft by injecting a controlled DC current in the winding of the
rotor. The electromagnetic field produces a torque being built up between
the flywheel and rotor resulting in energy transfer from the flywheel towards
the rotor in order to maintain a constant speed of 1500rpm.
The diesel engine is then started by the starters and at a speed of 700rpm
the electromagnetic clutch is energized, accelerating the diesel engine to
nominal speed within 1.5 to 2.5 seconds. After another 2 to 3 seconds,
the full load is supported by the Hitzinger DDUPS System running in diesel
operation.
In the event the diesel engine starters fail to start for any reason, the
electromagnetic clutch closes immediately and within 1.5 seconds the
engine will be brought to nominal speed (1500rpm) by the released energy

Energy Management/Smart Buildings - 25
Carlo Gavazzi
Synonymous with quality and innovation, Carlo Gavazzi continues to
revolutionise and lead the way in the energy management and smart
buildings sector.

Take control of your energy consumption


Metering
Our unrivalled family of easy to install DIN rail/panel mount single and
three phase energy meters meet all the requirements of the Measuring
Instruments Directive (MID) and resolve the requirements for monitoring
energy usage laid out in part L2 of the Building Regulations.
The range starts from an ultra-compact DIN-rail mounted, single phase
32A energy meter, providing both active and reactive energy metering
and cost allocation functions, up to a three phase energy analyser offering
built-in hot/cold water, gas and remote heating measurements and load
monitoring.
Data Aggregation
The VMU-C and VMU-Y energy platforms have proved to be significant
solutions when managing and integrating data from either single or
multiple sites to ensure maximum energy efficiency.
The VMU-C EM gathers data from up to 32 energy meters, power
analysers and VMU Series I/O modules on a single installation. VMU-Y
allows the user to aggregate information from up to 10 VMU-C EM units
within a single centralised interface to provide monitoring of up to 320
meters.
All information can be viewed and accessed from any PC using a standard
web browser with no ongoing costs.

Bring your smart building to life with a building


controls solution that is flexible for the future
Dupline® provides a realistic alternative to traditional parallel wiring,
reducing installation costs by as much as 50%. As well as saving on the
cost of installation, the design and commissioning process becomes
much simpler and faster because of the implementation of a 2 wire bus.
The bus itself allows free topology and the use of just about any cable,
without the need for shield or twisted pair.
Dupline® is the ultimate remote I/O for your BMS controller. You can
implement the strategy in the BMS, with each point from the field
presenting itself as a BACnet object from the Dupline®/BACnet gateway.
Applications for Dupline® are where I/O points are distributed over a wide
area and are of low density. HVAC, under floor heating, natural ventilation
and alarm point monitoring are good examples, but there are frequent
opportunities for reducing costs within lighting control and energy
management.

Car Park Guidance System


Carlo Gavazzi delivers an innovative solution to reduce the stress and
time taken for users to find vacant space, whilst other key features such
as speed of installation, lighting and ventilation control can make
significant cost savings.
Each parking bay is fitted with an ultrasonic sensor which will detect if
the space is available providing precise information on the exact number
of available parking spaces. Displays using directional arrows and digits
quickly guide the driver using the shortest route.
As a result, the driving in the parking facility will be reduced by 20% or
more, leading to reduced energy usage for ventilation. It is possible to
integrate other functions into the system, including the monitoring of
lighting, ventilation, CO levels and movement detectors.
Seamless integration into a building management system (BMS) using
the BACnet protocol is possible while lighting control to allow lighting to
be dimmed or turned off can be achieved by DALI protocol or relays. The
use of I/O modules for ventilation fans can also significantly reduce costs.

Power Factor Correction Solutions - 27
ABB Power Quality
ABB offers a complete power quality service for networks from low (LV)
to high voltage (HV), including site surveys and consultancy, power factor
correction (PFC) and active harmonic filtering equipment.

Why poor power factor (PF) matters to you


Your site’s Power Factor (PF) is the relationship between the active and
reactive power on the network. It measures how effectively you use the
electricity you buy. In an ideal world, it would be one (unity). In many cases
it is much lower – sometimes down to 0.5
When you have a poor PF you are effectively burning money. And high
energy bills, with the added risk of financial penalties, are only part of the
problem. Power Factor also impacts network reliability and its capacity to
add new loads when your business expands.
ABB’s complete service can help address your PF issues. This includes
a free, no-obligation, site survey, recommendations and the manufacture
and installation of the ideal PFC (Power Factor Correction) equipment
based on our new APCQ automatic capacitor banks that offer:
• Proven technology
• Wall & floor mounted options
• Complete auto set-up
• Easy to install & operate using our RVC & RVT power factor controllers
• Safety & reliability
For panel builders we also provide individual capacitor shelves that enable
panel builders to incorporate our PFC technology within their own low
voltage panels.

Detuned Installations & Network Studies


The presence of harmonic currents can cause unacceptable disturbances
in your supply network and adversely affect the operation of other electrical
equipment, including PFC.
ABB’s power quality specialists can carry out a harmonic study of the
network. If harmonics are present, we offer suitable capacitor and active
filter solutions.

Active Harmonic Filters


ABB PQF active filters offer the following system benefits:
• Reduced power system downtime to avoid expensive losses of
production
• Increased system efficiency & reduction of CO2 emissions
• Compliance with the strictest power quality regulations thanks to a
unique control concept, avoiding penalties and/or refusal by utilities
to connect installations to the electrical grid
• No detailed network analysis required, with rapid & easy solution
implementation
• Not over-loadable, thanks to the active concept, hence well adapted
to LV installations where loads are upgraded frequently

ESI Energy Storage Inverters


ABB’s range of BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems) now includes
the ESI range of bi-directional inverters designed specifically for small to
medium size renewable energy installations. As well as being suitable for
both LV and MV applications (with a step-up transformer), the ESI can
address power quality issues such as harmonic mitigation, load balancing
and reactive power compensation.

Purpose Built Facility


ABB’s power quality services for the UK are coordinated by our purpose
built facility at Bromborough. This now includes a new test bay with the
latest computerised testing technology. Before products are shipped, the
new facility ensures consistent high quality by testing in an automated bay
to the highest levels of repeatability and accuracy, including systematic
data storage. Testing includes high voltage, insulation and continuity tests.

Lighting Styles

Integral Lighting - Clean Lines without Frames,


Bezels & Joints
Not so long ago, electrical engineers had to pay a lot of attention to paint
colours, finishes and materials. It was very easy to get it wrong; the wrong
colour white, the wrong percentage of gloss and the wrong metal finish
often proved problematic for the engineer and client.
Another frequent bone of contention was the positioning of light fixtures
in an area. Architects often make engineers aware of their disappointment
when the clean lines of their space are interrupted by light fixtures.
Add to this the discomfort glare associated with direct lighting and the
problems can seem insurmountable.
Lighting Styles can solve the issues associated with using traditional
lighting by offering a variety of integrated lighting.
Simply put, these plaster light fixtures become part of the building fabric,
and once painted, disappear into the walls or ceiling, whilst still providing
the accent lighting or task lighting required in the space.
What is more, linear integrated lighting allows the designer or architect
to play with light and shadows to enhance the design rather than detract
from it. However, offering this flexibility does not have an impact on the
engineer’s work because this solution can still provide the lighting levels
the space requires.

One size does not fit all...


The ideal solution with a wide range of plaster profiles specifically
designed to be plastered in place to provide the clean, knife edge finishes
every designer or architect would like to achieve.
Forming angles with a plaster product that can be cut on-site is great
when working with those spaces where everything is not quite square.
For those who want something out of the norm there are also products
that offer the ability to make curves, circles or simply great shapes to
build upon.
All profiles can be used with a number of different LED tapes with a wide
range of light outputs and we will work with you if you need design help,
or if you would like us to achieve a specific project requirement.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...


In addition to white LEDs and RGB chips (that offer colour mixing
facilities), we can now offer white LED products that change the colour
temperature of the white light on-the-fly.
This facility mimics natural light, allowing the user to have cooler white
light during the middle of the day and warm white light when the long
shadows form on the ground outside.

Technology leaps ahead...


Our LED solutions push aside the bulky, inflexible and inefficient
fluorescent, cold cathode or xenon festoon systems that have dominated
this market.
These LED solutions offer the engineer higher efficiency and colour
required, and when used with the latest dimmable power supplies, give
the true versatility that your design requires.

The new Cloud-based Tablet Control has been designed in response to
the increasing demands from clients for wireless WiFi tablet-based control
of their lighting by mimicking the ability to turn lights on and off, up and
down and call scenes and individual lighting circuits and channels.
Architectural Lighting Controls - ARCHIE
From boutique hotel lobby, intimate restaurant, high-end residences to
corporate HQ boardrooms, our ARCHIE range provides ultimate flexibility
and control, enabling you to personalise the lighting to create visual impact
which supports your client’s corporate brand style, values and personality.
Human Centric Lighting
Tunable White (Human Centric Lighting) balances the artificial light in our
daily environment to simulate the natural daylight cycle. A person’s natural
circadian rhythm can benefit from a low intensity warmer light in the
morning/evening and a cooler more energising light during the main part
of the day. This helps to improve energy levels, mood, performance and
even a better night’s sleep.
Tunable White provides improved well-being for patients in hospital,
students in education and employees in offices by varying the colour
temperature to any value, which makes it the next most exciting technology
in lighting control.
DALI Pluggable MDB Systems - New
DALI64 and DUAL DALI64 (128) pluggable MDB systems are now
available from us, so you can specify a modular wiring system with MDBs
and plug in either one or two DALI 64 modules at any time from the start
of the installation, or at a future date.
So the first truly pluggable DALI modular system has arrived! The new
DALI switch interface features seven volt-free switch inputs that can be
activated by the contact closure of push-buttons, switches or relays.
Activating an input causes the unit to transmit a scene, raise or lower light
levels and communicate with the DALI system.
EmergiCraft DALI Emergency Monitoring System
A stand-alone scalable emergency self-test monitored addressable
system capable of monitoring DALI emergency fittings via an iPad™ app
and run on one or more devices. Each tablet can run up to 10 hubs and
each hub can run 2 x 64 DALI emergency fittings. This means a total of
1,280 DALI emergency fittings from one touchscreen and a total of 8
touchscreens can be networked together giving 10,240 DALI emergency
fittings. For more information, please contact our technical department.
Modular Wiring 2 - New for 2018
We are about to launch an exciting new modular wiring system which will
encompass modular wiring with a new range of circular 32A connectors
along with interchangeable panels that accommodate DALI control
products. The design will allow for greater flexibility to have any size and
number of circuits for both lighting and power configurations.
Home runs typically wired in 2.5mm², 4.0mm² or 6.0mm² BASEC approved
cables. Armoured leads, extender cables, switch fuse spurs are pre-wired
and tested at our factory in Surrey then supplied tamper proof to site where
its plug-and-play format makes it quick and easy to fit, improving onsite
efficiency and providing cost benefits.

Renewable / Energy Efficient Heating - 43
Dimplex
The UK Heating Marketing is Changing
Electricity is the obvious choice for our future needs due to its many
benefits, both at national and local levels because it can be produced in
the UK, allowing for continuity of supply at a steady price and it is
increasingly being produced from renewable sources, neutralising its
carbon intensity. Specifically, electric heating:
● Is 100% efficient at the point of use
● Can be controlled to a fine degree of accuracy
● Is quick & easy to install Ecodesign Compliant Logo
● Can operate as standalone heating or a complete system
● Has a low lifetime cost as it requires very little, if any, maintenance
● Is not limited by planning issues associated with flue requirements
The future of domestic and commercial space heating is electric. As the
world’s largest manufacturer of electric heating products, Dimplex has
the capabilities and knowledge to remain at the forefront of these
developments.

New Regulations - Lot 20


From 1st January 2018, all local space heaters manufactured for sale in
the UK which use electricity must comply with a new minimum efficiency
standard. The aim of this legislation is to remove inefficient technologies
and reduce the energy used by the products that heat our homes, helping
to achieve our overall carbon reduction targets. To comply, electric space
heaters will need to have a seven-day electronic timer and temperature
control, plus one energy efficiency feature, such as open window sensing
or adaptive start technology.
Look out for the ‘Ecodesign Compliant’ logo (pictured) for peace of mind
that a product complies with this new regulation.

Q-Rad Panel Heater

Q-Rad Electric Radiator


Q-Rad combines the latest, most advanced technologies to give
maximum control over heating. Q-Rad monitors the effect of its actions
on a room’s temperature, knowing precisely how long it takes to get to
the desired temperature and when to turn off as it approaches that target
temperature – minimising the energy that it uses while maximising comfort.
A low thermal mass allows Q-Rad to heat up more quickly and react more
responsively to changes in room temperature. This means improved
control, comfort and energy saving. Combining good looks with simple
controls, Q-Rad is ideal for use in many applications, including in place
of conventional convector heaters or electric radiators.

Air Curtains
Our extensive air curtain portfolio, with electric or hydronic options,
includes surface and recess mounted air curtains. We offer a range of
bespoke architectural units that are perfect for applications where AC3N Recessed Air Curtain
aesthetic requirements are of particular importance. We also offer a range

continuity requirements.
The unique UniKlip® system negates the need for nuts and bolts, enabling
it to be installed 3 times faster than traditional nut and bolt tray systems.
To ensure that the full benefit of the Klip is available, Unitrunk now supply
couplers and accessories with the Klips attached.
With a full range of accessories and unique product features, UniKlip®
provides the ultimate cable tray solution.

Installation Cost Calculator


Unitrunk are committed to the installer deriving the greatest benefit from
using UniKlip®. Unitrunk has, in testing, calculated that UniKlip® is 3 times

52 - Fire Performance & Power Cables
Pyrotenax
Pyrotenax (Pyro) Wire & Cable Systems provide an unparalleled standard
in performance cables for fire survival, communications and power
applications – Fact!
The product portfolio comprises the Pyro MI (Mineral Insulated) cables
for critical building systems, including fire alarms, emergency lighting and
other vital power applications.
Pyro MI cable systems achieve the highest standards in fire safety and
exceed the requirements of “Approved Document B” of the Building
Regulations (Effective April 2007).

Fire Survival in Fire Alarm Applications


(BS 5839)
Pyro MI cables are the only true fire survival option.
During a fire, even BS 5839 approved polymeric alternatives burn,
significantly reducing their structural integrity, mechanical strength and
resistance to mechanical impact from falling debris.

Pyro MI cables do not, making them the safest choice in every application,
regardless of approvals.
Pyro MI cables hold BS 5839-1 approval from the LPCB and are listed
on www.redbooklive.com
Remember – not all manufacturers have this quality listing.

Critical Power Applications


(BS 7346-6:2005, replacing BS 6387)
Pyro MI cables continue to provide the ideal solution for supplying power
to critical systems.
Consider BS 7346-6:2005 Components for Smoke and Heat Control
Systems – Specifications for Cable Systems; MI is the only cost-effective,
performance cable for life safety, fire-fighting and property protection
systems.
Significantly, many polymeric power cables (previously compliant with BS
6387) do not reach the minimum performance requirements of BS 7346.
Those that do are large, heavy, cumbersome, and expensive to install.
Smaller, lightweight MI cables are the only solution and do not react to,
or contribute to, a fire (important in the impending Euro classification of
cables within the Construction Products Directive (CPD).
With the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, Pyro
MI cables offer a reduced risk option when compared with all electrical
“standard” compliant alternatives.
Pyro MI = Peace of MInd.
Other benefits of Pyro MI:
• Bare cables are 100% recyclable (copper is completely re-usable)
• Product is non-ageing, offering the longest life expectancy
• High temperature resistance, without reducing life expectancy
• Useful in mitigating “harmonic” loads from a buildings electrical products
• High current carrying capacity

56 - Lightning & Transient Protection
ABB Furse
Total Solution to Lightning Protection, Earthing &
Transient Overvoltage Protection Requirements
From design advice to innovative, solution-oriented products, ABB Furse
has the expertise, experience and excellence to provide a Total Solution
to your individual lightning protection, transient overvoltage and earthing
problems.
Lightning Protection Standards
BS EN 62305 replaced BS 6651 in 2008 and, following on from the IEC
(World) and CENELEC (European) versions of IEC/EN 62305, is the
recognised standard for lightning protection.
BS EN 62305 is a four part standard consisting of general principles; risk
management, physical damage to structures and life hazard, and electrical
and electronic systems within structures. Additionally, it includes the Total Solutions Service
requirements of the BS EN 62561 series of standards, which is the ratified
European standard relating to the capabilities of lightning protection
components.
BS EN 62305 Part 1 is an introduction to the other parts of the standard
and essentially describes how to design a Lightning Protection System
(LPS) in accordance with the accompanying parts of the standard.
BS EN 62305 Part 2 risk management is a very detailed approach to the
risk of lightning inflicted damage to structures, their contents (electronic
equipment) and living beings. It identifies different risk components that
collectively are compared to a tolerable risk. It is a very long-winded process
when carrying out the assessment long hand. A computer program is
commercially available from ABB Furse to considerably reduce the time to Design & Support Services FurseWELD
implement the risk procedure.
BS EN 62305 Part 3 relates directly to the major part of BS 6651. It differs
from BS 6651 in as much that it has four classes or protection levels of
Lightning Protection System (LPS), as opposed to the basic two (ordinary
and high-risk) levels in BS 6651.
BS EN 62305 Part 4 covers the protection of electrical and electronic
systems housed within structures. This part essentially embodies what
annex C in BS 6651 detailed, but with a new zonal approach referred to
as Lightning Protection Zones (LPZ). It provides information for the design,
installation, maintenance and testing of a Lightning Electromagnetic
Impulse (LEMP) protection system for electrical/electronic systems within
a structure.
To assist with customer concerns, we offer a design and advisory service Surge Protection Earthing

the graph are two darker plots (6 and 7), these lines are indicating the
sound pressure levels of a 250kVA diesel generator before and after

Comparing the unsilenced values with the silenced generator values it is


clear that the higher to mid-range frequencies have been attenuated
effectively. This drop in sound pressure level is made more clear by
comparing the silenced generator plot line to the ‘familiar location’ plot lines.
Above 200Hz, the silenced generator levels are below those of a typical
loud stereo player, moderate ocean waves and even a typical library.
The peak sound level of the open generator (plot 6) is around 103dB at
125Hz, this obvious peak is indicative of the engine firing and is typical
of all combustion engines. Frequencies below 200Hz are more difficult
to attenuate, but it is still clear that the sub 200Hz frequencies of the

Green T.HE High Efficiency Transformers - 65
Eco Design
Green T.HE high efficiency transformers meet the latest European Commission's Ecodesign Directive, which outlines the parameters transformers must
adhere to in order to meet efficiency requirements, defined by the maximum load and no-load losses a transformer can record.

Classification
The classification of a cast resin transformer depends on the value of the no-load losses (Po), as well as the load losses (Pk), characteristics of the machine.
More precisely, Po losses are independent from the load and remain constant for the whole period the transformer is connected to the electric power
network. On the other hand, Pk losses only occur when the transformer is connected to a load and are proportional to the square of the load itself.

Certifications & Acceptance Tests


Prior to Legrand cast resin transformers being supplied to the customer, they are individually inspected and must pass the acceptance and, when necessary,
type tests, if they are required at the time of order.
At the end of the acceptance tests, a specific inspection certificate is delivered with each transformer.

individual units.
In such an IP-System, each UPS is connected to a common bus (IP-Bus) Mains
by a 3-phase choke (IP-Choke), designed to limit fault currents to an
acceptable level but provide sufficient load sharing at the same time.
UPS 1 UPS 2 UPS N
Each load is related to an individual UPS and is directly connected to the
output of the UPS.
Due to its load sharing capability, an IP-System is typically designed in
an N+x redundant configuration, reducing the number of redundant units
to a minimum, whilst keeping the operating point of the UPS at a high
level on the efficiency curve. The Isolated Parallel System provides an IP- Bus
exceptional method of combining the features found in Isolated-
Redundant and Parallel-Redundant UPS configurations: shared IP- Choke
redundancy among UPS modules and output bus fault isolation in a large,

How is Kinetic Energy Stored?
The kinetic energy accumulator consists of two rotating parts; the outer rotor (or accurotor) runs mechanically free around the inner rotor.
The inner rotor, driven by the central shaft, rotates at 1500 rpm (50Hz) or 1800 rpm (60Hz). It is provided with two sets of windings: a three phase AC
winding and a DC winding.
In conditioning mode, the AC winding is energised to generate a rotating magnetic field that accelerates the outer rotor to approximately 3000 rpm. The
net relative speed between the inner and outer ring of the bearings is only 1500 rpm, since the shaft itself is rotating at 1500 rpm. The outer rotor (accurotor)
stores kinetic energy more effectively than a design with an inner rotor, since the amount of kinetic energy increases quadratically with the distance from
the centre of rotation.
In independent mode, the DC winding is energised and the outer rotor is coupled to the inner rotor by induction. Its kinetic energy is transferred to the
inner rotor with the result of driving the inner rotor and connected generator rotor. The energy transfer is regulated by accurately controlling the current
injected into the DC winding.
Note: The stato-alternator is a totally brushless machine.

The input stabilising filter system also includes the coupling choke; this connects the input grid supply with the UPS high quality output supply. It allows
large voltage differences between both AC systems by means of reactive currents for any direction, independent of the active power flow. The special
design of the choke provides a high degree of decoupling in both directions between the input and output.
The input current consists only of the sinusoidal fundamental waveform required for power transfer. Likewise, harmonics and transients in the input voltage
have no effect on the quality of the output voltage. This independence is achieved through the calculated combination of the coupling choke high impedance
characteristics to harmonic currents and the special design synchronous machine windings and selective damper cage representing a short circuit to
these harmonics, preventing reflection to the mains supply.

Hence the coupling choke provides: I Real I Load (apparent)

• Input power factor correction >0.98 from 0-100% load at nominal voltage

In the event of input short circuit, the current flow towards the grid network Vin +/- 10% V Alternator V Out
is limited by the choke at <200% I nominal until the input is disconnected.
During this transient situation, the coupling choke maintains the UPS bus
voltage, ensuring all kinetic stored energy can be fully utilised for
supporting the critical load.

Static UPS - An Overview & Application Design Guidance - 75
Static UPS systems provide continuous AC power protection by powering the system load via the inverter. This ensures that the voltage and frequency
supplied to the system load remain within close tolerances. In the event of a mains failure, the inverter continues to support the system load, drawing its
DC power from the system battery, many types of which are now available. Many developments have recently occurred by using IGBT semi-conductor
technology, providing improved efficiency, self-monitoring, touchscreens and modular construction.
By using IGBT rectifiers, Vertiv static UPS systems draw power at near unity power factor. This minimises the input current required for any given load
power and enables more real power to be drawn from an AC supply of a given current rating.
UPS systems are rarely operated at or near to full load, therefore the fact that the efficiency of Vertiv static UPS systems is maintained at almost the
same high level from 100% load down to as low as 15% of system load becomes very significant to the overall running costs. UPS modules can be easily
paralleled for increased power or for N+1 redundancy.
By using the modular approach, the ‘+1’ is a relatively small capacity enabling a high ratio of load to UPS capacity to be achieved. Modules can be
incorporated with internal static switches and isolators to form 10kW to 3MW+ systems, with “hot” swappable systems which are able to service units
without going to bypass.
Vertiv UPS systems with IGBT inverters can support any leading or lagging load power factor and all non-linear computer loads.

Cummins Data Centre Continuous (DCC) Rating


Cummins has developed a diesel generator power output ratings category for data centre applications to ensure total reliability and dependability for data
centre operators. Data Centre Continuous (DCC) is defined as the maximum power which the generator is capable of delivering continuously to a constant
or varying electrical load for unlimited hours in a data centre application.
The ratings greatly simplify the engineering design process and make it easier for customers to achieve site certification from the Uptime Institute.

NEW! PowerCommand Cloud™ Remote Monitoring System


PowerCommand Cloud™ brings together a flexible remote monitoring system, cloud-based data storage and transfer, and convenient 24/7 access to your
backup emergency power generator sets through easily accessible apps.

Performance & Access


PowerCommand Cloud™ allows you to monitor multiple sites and generator sets through a single interface.
The robust and secure cloud-based data storage and transfer capability coupled with user-friendly mobile and web apps provide remote access to information
at a moment’s notice and give you the freedom to make decisions related to the operating state of your generators.
The apps send real-time notifications and warnings related to the generator, alternator and sensor. With a few taps and clicks, anyone who has access
permissions can stop, reset or restart the generator if necessary.

Monitoring
PowerCommand Cloud™ offers the ability to share information with your service provider, saving valuable time and money. Your service provider can handle
routine issues remotely and mitigate potentially serious situations by scheduling proactive service calls based on the data available. As the system stores
historical data, it allows you to monitor and report on critical trends.

Security
With PowerCommand Cloud™, the data and operations are safe and provided on a trusted secure platform that adheres to regional privacy laws. Your
emergency backup power will be operation-ready and your data will be available when you need it thanks to our leading-edge cloud services.

Digital Paralleling Systems & Switchgear


PowerCommand® Digital Master Controllers are designed and manufactured around standardised control blocks - delivering increased reliability, flexibility
and performance. Digital Master Controllers (DMC) provides seamless interface between the generator(s), PowerCommand® Controller (PCC), the site
switchgear and distribution systems.
Furthermore, the DMC is a fully automatic controller suitable for unattended applications. DMCs are configurable for use in many power systems architectures,
including isolated bus paralleling and infinite bus (utility) applications.

86 - Betobar-r / Technical Specification
betobar-r – High Quality Production Routing Example
The “betobar-r” busbars have been developed as a modern, all-purpose
means of efficient and safe transmission of electrical energy. It has been
in manufacture for more than thirty-five years. The “betobar-r” system
complies with all the requirements for current distribution at low and
medium voltage.
The busbar consists of copper or aluminium conductors, embedded in
an enclosure of a fire retardant, self-extinguishing and homogeneous
insulation mix based on epoxy cast-resin with mineral fillers ensuring high
mechanical strength and chemical withstand.
Standard types are available for current ratings + 6300 A and voltage
ratings up to 17.5 kV. Systems for higher current ratings or DC
applications are possible. The busbar line consists of a number of
prefabricated elements. The electrical joining of the conductors is
achieved by means of double fish plates and high tensile steel bolts.
The junctions and the element ends are overcast with the same insulation
mix as used for the elements. In this way, an integral insulating enclosure
IP66/IP68 is guaranteed over the full length of the busbar run. Straight
junctions and also elbow junctions are available each facilitating
installation adjustments of 0-20 mm per standard junction.
“betobar-r” busbars are suitable for application in large buildings,
industrial plants, power stations, sub-stations and data centres, such as:

Leading Safety Technology
Everyday Compromise
Personnel & Property Protection vs. Selective Trip Settings
• High set or non-instantaneous circuit breakers sacrifice people & property
protection for selective coordination
• Current limiting molded case circuit breakers are quick to respond & provide
excellent protection, but are challenging to coordinate for selectivity
• Maintenance switches sacrifice coordination for protection

Your power distribution system can be selective without sacrificing arc flash protection. ArcWatchTM = A balanced solution

ArcWatchTM is powered by Instantaneous Zone Selective Interlocking (I-ZSI) and


Wave Form Recognition (WFR).

I-ZSI allows intelligent communication between circuit breakers like traditional


ZSI, but adds interlocking of the INST protections of the trip units. This allows
more sensitive and fast-acting circuit breakers to be selective when responding
to a fault.

Each circuit breaker will only operate when needed and act as back up only when
necessary.

System Reliability System Protection


GE’s I-ZSI capability provides the fastest interlocked protection in the industry.
You can get instantaneous protection, selectively, regardless of the size of your Selective Arc Flash
Coordination Mitigation
system or main circuit breaker.

WFR provides current limiting devices with the intelligence to recognise the
operation of downstream devices. An instantaneous algorithm allows a feeder GE
circuit breaker to be set very sensitive and still provide selectivity, while providing
instantaneous protection where you need it.

What’s more, the setting is not dependent on a complex coordination study; it


simply depends on the device with which you are trying to be selective. When
paired with GE current limiting molded case circuit breakers, WFR allows lower
INST pick-up settings while maintaining full selective coordination.

Only GE’s ArcWatchTM solution provides arc flash protection and instantaneous selective coordination – simultaneously!

Leak Detection / Design Guide - 99
Design Guide – TraceTek Leak Detection
TraceTek leak detection systems can be utilised in a variety of installations The TraceTek TTC, TTA-S IM and SZA modules provide local indication
to detect water, chemical or fuel leaks. TraceTek sensor cables detect of the system operating status via LEDs, plus voltage-free contacts for
and locate leaks along their entire length. TraceTek point sensors detect remote connection to external alarm signals, remote annunciation panels,
leaks at a specific point. Virtually any number of point sensors can be or building management systems. A typical circuit is shown below:
combined with a sensor cable on a leak detection single circuit.
The following information is provided for initial guidance only. Complete
product information, including selection guides, data sheets, installation
instructions and operating manuals, can be downloaded from our website.

Sensor Selection
The first design task is to select the most appropriate sensor type based
on the liquid to be detected and the area to be monitored.
TT1000-POINT-PROBE should be selected for water detection in areas
requiring a single point of detection, such as drip trays under HVAC units. Large Circuits, Concealed Sensors or Separated Areas – for large
TT1000 sensor cable should be selected for water detection in circuits (normally more than 40 meters or where sensors are distributed

TT7000 sensor cable should be selected for strong acid detection. providing complete sensor status and leak location information digitally
to the host system. The TT-TS12 can be connected to as many as 128
TTSIMs via a single RS-485 network, allowing extremely large leak
Sensor Layout detection systems to be easily configured and integrated.
The next design task is to determine the optimum sensor layout. The
sensing cable or point probe should be positioned so that leakage from
the potential leak sources will contact the sensor quickly, before reaching
any critical equipment, cables or other items to be protected.
Perimeter Protection – lay the sensing cable along the perimeter of the
room, at a minimum of 600mm from the wall.
Surface Protection – lay the sensing cable in a serpentine pattern
(typically on a 1.2 to 2 meter pitch) to protect larger surface areas.
Around Equipment – lay the sensing cable around equipment so that
leaks can be detected before spreading out.
Interconnecting Separate Areas – jumper cables, branch connectors,
and weighted length modules can be used to connect sensors from
separate areas into a single circuit, as illustrated below:

Salamandre IP4X Distribution Trunking - 101
Legrand has invested heavily in Salamandre distribution trunking to ensure that it provides everything you would expect from the market leader. The latest
innovations have been made to keep you up to speed with the amendments to the Wiring Regulations...

Changes to the Wiring Regulations


The latest edition of the Wiring Regulations included specific instructions relating to the requirement for IP conformity of all trunking systems using
non-sheathed cables.
The Regulations included the following paragraph:
“Non-sheathed cables are permitted if the cable trunking system provides at least the degree of protection IPXXD or IP4X, and if the cover can only be
removed by means of a tool or deliberate action.”
BS 7671 : 2008 - Amendment No. 3 : 2015 also includes the note:
“If a system includes site-fabricated joints, the installer must confirm the completed item meets at least the degree of protection IPXXD.”

The Index of Protection


The index of protection is defined in BS EN 60529:1992 - Degree of protection provided by enclosures.
The Regulations allow two levels for the degree of protection:
IP4X – Protected against solid bodies greater than 1mm in diameter. The test uses a 1mm diameter, 100mm long test probe/wire. The probe is applied
with a force of 1N±10% and is not allowed to enter the enclosure being tested.
IPXXD – Solid bodies no greater than 1mm in diameter may enter the enclosure but will remain clear of hazardous parts. The test uses a 1mm diameter,
100mm long test probe/wire. The enclosure may allow entry of the 100mm long test wire. However, the wire is not allowed to touch any hazardous parts
within the enclosure.
The Salamandre range of distribution trunking has evolved to include a simple solution to IP4X conformity.

A Simple, Convenient Solution


To achieve IP4X conformity using Salamandre trunking lengths requires the addition of a simple
‘cover strap’ which is connected to each coupler over the joint between two lids.
A new range of IP4X fittings, with all the time-saving installation benefits of Salamandre, integrates
fully with existing lengths and accessories to provide a total solution when using non-sheathed cable.

For IP4X protection, simply clip a ‘cover strap’


to each coupler over the joint between two lids
IP4X fittings should be specified to achieve
the correct level of conformity

Cable Management Systems - Technical Issues & Standards - 105
Selecting the Correct Material
Cable management systems are predominantly supplied in four finishes:
• Pre-Galvanised (BS EN 10346:2009) • Stainless Steel (BS EN 10082-2:2005)
• Hot Dipped Galvanised (ISO 1461) • Electro-Zinc for cable baskets (ISO 4520:1981)
The important factor is to know when and where to specify which material.
Pre-Galvanised (BS EN 10346:2009)
Mild steel material pre-coated at the steel mill. Good resistance to rust in a dry indoor environment. Not recommended for use in humid or outdoor installations.
Hot Dipped Galvanised (BS EN 1461)
Generally, and commonly referred to as “galv after”, this is a mild steel material which is galvanised after the product has been manufactured. This process
achieves a thicker coating of zinc which increases the products resistance to corrosion. Products made of this material are suitable for outdoor installations.
Stainless Steel
Used extensively in the process industry and where product is required in harsh environments:
304L: Specified for pharmaceutical and food industry. This is a tough corrosion-resistant grade.
316L: Specified for coastal environments or areas with a high saline content. Referred to as Marine Grade.
Stainless Steel is the only product of the four which will prevent the formation of Zinc Whiskers.
Electro-Zinc (ISO 4520:1981)
Used extensively in the manufacturing process for cable basket. The steel wires are cut and welded together to form the cable basket which is then passed
through a zinc bath. An electrolytic process applies the zinc to the steel to provide its coating. Suitable for use in dry indoor environments. Not recommended
for use in humid or outdoor installations.

Certificated Training -
Cutting & Forming Cable Basket
To ensure that the cutting and forming process is completed safely and
with a high degree of consistency, Unitrunk provide free on-site training.
The training takes about 30 minutes to complete and covers all the aspects
of cutting and forming that is likely to be required. The training is
certificated, so everyone who attends and takes part receives a formal
document to validate their participation. Additionally, attendee names will
be added to a database that Unitrunk maintains and each Site Manager
will receive a register for their records of all the operatives who have
undertaken the training.
To date, Unitrunk has trained 600+ site operatives, none of whom had
ever received any such instruction before. Unitrunk will provide – free of
charge – a set of bolt croppers to all sites where training is undertaken to
ensure the correct tool is being used. It is this level of support and
accountability that enables the contractor to have complete peace of mind
when using Unitrunk products. Unitrunk has also produced new cutting
and bending video content. Please visit www.unitrunk.co.uk to view.

CPD Presentations
Unitrunk has two CIBSE accredited presentations:-
(i) Cable Management Systems “Minimise Volume, Maximise Potential”
(ii) Zinc Whiskers - Understanding the Issue & Appreciating the Solution
To support the benefits that RIS (Rapid Installation Systems) products can provide, the content of both presentations has been compiled to enhance the
opportunities to reduce the material content, ensure that the correct material is specified and increase awareness of value engineering options that would
previously not have been considered.
With the advent of BIM Level 2, thoughtful and considered cable management specifications can have a significant effect on projects. Reducing the volume
of material being used can only be achieved by having knowledge of the standards and applying that knowledge appropriately. Unitrunk encourages early
engagement with the design team to maximise the opportunity for identifying and submitting any value engineering proposals to the client. The photograph
shows a Unitrunk ladder being used as the support for cable basket and busbar. Secured by suspension wire, this solution saved 20% on material cost
and 35% on labour.

The general steps for the designer are:


• Ensure the Fire Risk Assessment is complete
• Confirm level of protection or system category is correct (listed below)
• Confirm the ‘Cause & Effect’
• Agree any ‘Variations’ with all relevant parties
• Complete the specification drawings
• Sign off the Design Certificate required within BS 5839-1:2013
System Categories are fully described within BS 5839-1:2013 and vary
depending on the Risk. These are commonly referred to as Category M,
L5, L4, L3, L2 or L1 or Life protection of P1 or P2 for Property protection. SMOKE detector spacing (under flat horizontal ceiling) SMOKE detector (under pitched roofs)

Below is a small portion of advice taken from notes associated with one
of the Approved CPD training seminars that relate specifically to fire
detection design.
Detector Selection & Siting
Selection and siting of sensors (for further advice please refer to
Clauses 21 and 22 of BS 5839-1:2013)
The objective is to select the correct sensor for the appropriate application,
to provide the earliest warning of fire without the risk of a false alarm. It is
therefore worth trying to visualise the type of fire that is likely to occur in a
particular room or area and to familiarise oneself with the application and
the risks that could give rise to a false alarm.
It should also be remembered that a Vigilon system can incorporate a
whole range of different sensors using S-Quad multi-sensors. These can
be set up for different applications and can be switched from ‘state to state’
should particular risks be present for short periods of time. This should be
read in conjunction with the application / risk charts.
To download our free S-Quad Selector Mobile App for iPhone, iPad
and Android devices, please go to www.gent.co.uk
Obviously, conditions may vary depending on the particular application and
if there are any doubts, please contact Gent for further consultation.
Voice Alarm (VA) & Public Address (PA)
Voice messages are more effective than tone signals alone.
Research has shown in an alarm situation (EN 54 Part 16):
• 13% of people react in timely manner to bell tones
• 75% of people reacted quickly to a voice message explaining the
nature of the emergency
In addition to this, it was found that people will naturally use the entrance
they used to enter the building to leave even if it is not the closest.
The newly harmonised EN 54 Part 16 defines the specific functionality of
the VA equipment and applies to any component that is part of the core
functionality of VA. Our rack system is now certified as a complete unit, so
the new standard means it is no longer possible to build a system using
components from third party suppliers.
EN 54 Part 24 covers the minimum requirements for loudspeakers and the
method for testing their operational performance. Acoustic requirements
for loudspeakers vary according to the nature of the space where they are
installed, so many projects may involve at least one application where there
is a need to employ specialist design support.
Honeywell Gent will provide FREE advice on Fire Detection and Voice
Alarm system design recognising the responsibilities imposed on the
