Scope of works
Replacement MCC with ABB ACQ810 VFD starters controlling 2 x 37kW DWF Pumps and 2 x 90kW Storm Pumps.
Cooling Fans and Filters were selected based upon the VFD manufacturers recommended air flow requirements. As part of the scope of works TSE carried out a 7 day pre-install and post-install harmonic survey using a Chauvin Arnoux C. A 8335 Power Quality Analyser. The proposed VFD harmonic foot print was modelled against the pre-install survey prior to assembly to ensure compliance with the requirements of Engineering Recommendation G5/4.
Extended ramping down of the VFDs was utilised to prevent the non return valve slamming shut. The purpose of this was to extend the lifetime of the installation, and reduce noise as the pumping station was in a residential area.
