and mining enterprise of our country, the following starting modes are usually adopted for large power case motor: direct starting, starting with the reactor serially connected, high voltage frequency conversion soft starting and voltage reducing starting with liquid resistance serially connected and so on. When the motors directly connected to the electric network in full voltage start, reducing the voltage of the electric network will affect the normal operation of other equipment in the net and accident may even happen; the motor connected to the special transformer requires a certain spare capacity of the transformer. However, the spare capacity of the transformers in many enterprises is limited and only no-load full voltage starting can be done, and then the load will be added after starting, which gives a huge mechanical impact on the motor and shortens greatly the lifespan of the motor and the driving system. In this case, voltage reducing starting mode can be selected exclusively for the starting of the case motor. Star triangle decompression starting and draw-out triangle decompression starting modes do not need the special starting equipment. But the plugs of the stator winding of the motor are mostly demand complicated manufacturing technology, and the price of the motor is high. These two starting modes are seldom selected because of the limitation of the stator winding wiring mode of the motor. For resistance and reactor decompression starting, although the prices of the starting equipment are low, they are the washout products for their disadvantages of large starting current, unstable starting performance, unadjustable resistance value during the starting process, over heating, high energy consumption, uncontrollable starting process, inadvisable continuous starting and short lifespan. Heat-variable resistor utilizes the negative temperature characteristic of the liquid resistance to change the resistance value, but actually the characteristic of the liquid resistance that the resistance reduces with the increase of the temperature is quit limited, basically equivalent to a constant resistance. Though it can fulfill the function of starting for one time, its starting performance can not meet the requirement of the motor during starting that the resistance shall be reduced smoothly. And its control performance is poor with high temperature rise for one time starting, which is not suitable for constant starting. For this condition, our company developed the liquid resistance soft starting equipment for large and medium size case motor based on more than ten years experience of developing liquid resistance product. This product utilizes the features of large capacity and good adjusting performance of the liquid resistance to control the starting current of the motor within the range of 2 to 3.5 Ie times of the rated motor current, which greatly lower the starting current. It becomes the ideal soft starting product at present for large and medium size case motors because of its favorable starting performance in China. The resistance of WLQ series starter for high voltage case motor is the water solution compound by special transmitter substance, which connected serially in the stator loop of the motor. The resistance controls its value variety from big to small in the starting process of the motor, which accommodates to the starting performance of the asynchronous motor and significantly reduces the starting current of the motor, and thereby fulfills the decompression smooth starting without impact on the case motor.

II. Basic operation principle


According to motor driving theory, serially connect the liquid resistance compound by special transmitter substance with the functions of voltage division and current limiting in the motor stator loop. In the starting process, the resistance value of the resistance automatically fulfills the endless variety from big to small during the setting time period to make the terminal voltage on the motor stator and the starting torque gradually increase, when the rotation speed of the motor approaches the rated value, the liquid resistance will be cut off and the full-voltage operation will be input to realize the low current smoothly soft starting of the motor.

. Installation and commission


The installation and commission of WLQ series starter must be done under the guide of our technicians. Before actual commission, the user should get the equipment ready and fix them above the cable trench by the channel steel base. In addition, prepare the cables with required length and make the cable heads. 1. Connect the interlock control lines and the cables of the motor main loop according to the electrics schematic diagram and electrics interlock diagrams attached in this manual; 2. In the case of the main loop of the motor without power supply, power on the starter (note: the air switch QF1 inside the starter should be in open state first); 3. Close QF1, the electrode shall move toward the reset direction (the reverse direction of the stable electrode). If not, open QF1 immediately, and reversely connect (reverse phase) any of the two lines of the three-phase power supply lines. Reclose QF1, and the electrode should reset automatically. Check if the starting, operating and stopping state are normal; 4. Prepare the liquid resistance. First, calculate the required resistance value according to the motor parameter, the voltage and the load status; take three bags of the electrolytic powder, dissolve them by distilled water respectively, put them into three tanks; then respectively add distilled water until the water level in each tank is about 10cm below the tank cover. Measure if the liquid resistance value is the value the starter needs by the minitype transformer used for resistance measurement attached in the starter. (refer to the fourth term in the precautions when preparing the liquid); 5. According to the size of the motor and the status of the load to set the operation time of each time relay inside the starter; 6. Power on to test starting without load and stop for several times ( the main loop cant be power transmitted) to make the electrolytic powder dissolve away; 7. Power on the main loop and start the motor. If the starting current is between 2 and 3.5Ie, the commission of the starter is done and the starter can be put into usage. If the starting current is too large or starting cant be completed, adjust the density of the electrolyte (refer to the precautions part in this manual) and

the starting time.

IX. Operation process


1. Starting up Close the air switch QF1 inside the starter, the reset indicator light of the starter is on and the electrode resets automatically. Starting allowable light is on after start-up. Switch on the isolating switch of the power supply of the motor main loop; The motor begins to start after the starting button is pressed, and the starting allowable light is off with starting light on. Switch to operating state after start-up and the starting light is off with operating light on. Stop The motor stops operating automatically after the stop button is pressed. The starter resets automatically right now; Switch off the isolating switch of the power supply of the motor main loop; Open QF1 inside the starter.

2.

X. Precautions
1. The starter cabinet of case motor must be grounded reliably; 2. The electrolyte is not allowed to be touched, the electrode and other charged parts, as well as the tank. Because the liquid inside the tank may be with high voltage after start-up; 3. Start the main motor only after starting allowable light is on. If starting allowable light is not on after the starter is reset, insepct the starter and adjust it to be normal before use the starter; 4. In the starting process, if the instant starting current is too large, lower the density of the electrolyte to increase the starting resistance; if the current after start-up is too large, increase the density of the electrolyte to ensure enough starting torque for the motor. When modifying the electrolyte density, do not splash the electrolyte on the tank edge, the surface or the cover to avoid electrical leakage or short-circuit. in case of unexpected splash, use a dry duster cloth to clean it immediately; 5. If it is necessary to stop starting or operating in case of abnormal circumstance in starting or motor operating process, stop button shall be pressed. If invalid, cut off the power supply ( switch off the air switch QF1) of the control loop immediately; 6. Cut off the power supply of the starter or switch off the air switch of the starter when normal operation of the host is prohibited; 7. Check if the tank is put right at the middle place, if the liquid level reaches the prescriptive height and if the electrode can move up and down freely before using the starter which has been idle for a period of time; 8. In case of powering on for the first time due to change in phase and frequency of the working power supply of the starter caused by equipment maintenance or other reasons, attention must be paid to the moving direction of the electrodes; 9. If the no-load test of Y type starter is normal, but the temperature of the liquid is too high or even boiling (vapor is given out from the tank) when the starter is operating, it is due to the poor connection of the star-point contactor of the motor. Stop and inspect without delay; 10. In case of special declaration (easy to freeze cold north area) when ordering, the starter will be matched with three heaters (the rated power of each heater is 1KW, working voltage is AC220V). The electrolyte of the starter may be freezing after stop for a period in cold winter. Before restart, use the heaters to heat first and

then stop heating and take the heaters out after the ice is melted. At last, repower on the starter to enter the reset state.

XI. Basic maintenance


1. Check if the liquid level is too low periodically. The level shall not be 20cm below the tank cover. Meanwhile, the levels of the three tanks shall be kept the same, if not, add water in time; 2. Due to water quality, electrolyte volatilization and other reasons, the starting performance of the starter may not get better than before, such as large starting current or the motor cant reach the rated speed rotation after starting (that is, the motor cant be started). In these cases, it is necessary to add some water (for the former condition) or electrolytic powder (for the later condition) into the tanks; 3. For Y type starter, star-point contactor (also called short circuit contactor) of the main motor stator or the circuit breaker need to be checked regularly and make them pull-on well to ensure the safe usage of the starter and the safe operation of the main motor; 4. Each time overhauling the equipment, test the isolation starter for safety.

XII. Fault finding


The inspection and repair work shall be done by technicians or electricians when the starter is faulty. According to symptoms of the fault, the analysis, inspection and maintenance work shall be done with reference to the schematic diagrams attached in this manual. For convenient maintenance work, please take care of this manual. In case of any problem difficult to be solved, please contact our technology service department immediately.
