The mechanical interlocks possible are shown below, depending on whether 2 or 3 circuit breakers (any model and in any version) are used in the switching system.
|Type A||Type B|
|Between two circuit breakers||Between three circuit breakers|
|One normal power supply and one emergency power supply||Two normal power supplies and one emergency power supply|
|Type C||Type D|
|Between three circuit breakers||Between three circuit breakers|
|The two half-busbars can be powered by a single transformer (bus-tie closed) or by both at the same time (bus-tie open)||Three power supplies (generators or transformers) on the same busbar, so parallel operation is not allowed|
In the sphere of low voltage distribution systems, a high level of reliability of the power supply source is always required.
In fact, for some types of user loads, an unexpected power cut can cause serious problems, such as loss of a large amount of data, damage to the working process, plant stoppage, etc.
For this reason ABB SACE has developed the ATS010 device (Automatic Transfer Switch), for automatic network-generator unit changeover, able to manage the whole system provided for emergency power supply.
Fields of application
The ATS010 device is extremely suited to use in all emergency power supply systems where a solution ready to be installed, easy to use and reliable is required.
Among some of the main applications are therefore power supply of UPS units (Uninterrupted Power Supply) in general, operating theatres and primary hospital services, emergency power supplies for civil buildings, hotels, airports, data banks and telecommunication systems, power supply of industrial lines for continuous processes, etc.
Thanks to a changeover logic with integrated safety, ATS010 is able to offer a highly reliable solution to the problem of service continuity. A high performance network sensor, an electrical interlock and the power outputs for control of the circuit-breakers are contained in a single device. For the latter, ATS010 has been conceived to integrate perfectly with both the moulded-case circuit-breakers (with stored energy motor operator or direct acting) and ABB SACE air circuit-breakers, thereby guaranteeing the power supply to the normal line and, in the case of anomalies, sends the start/stop commands to the generator and controls the two circuit-breakers by means of an interlock system.
Changeover is managed both by means of a range of delays which can be adjusted by the user and, of course, in consideration of any possible alarms coming from the field. Notable characteristics of the ATS010 are, furthermore, its ease of use thanks to the front graphics and to the signalling LEDs which facilitate readout of the state of the system, as well as its flexibility which means a single device can be used in different systems.
Compliance with Standards
The SACE ATS010 device fully complies with the EN 50178 (1997) Standard: “Electronic apparatus for us in power plants”. It conforms to the LVD Directives no. 73/23/EEC, EMC no. 89/336 EEC and has been designed according to the provisions of the following Standards: Electromagnetic compatibility: EN 50081-2, EN 50082-2, Environmental conditions: IEC 68-2-1, IEC 68-2-2, IEC 68-2-3.
