Low-harmonic ac drive

ACS550 series variable speed ac drive combines simplicity, convenience, fieldbus connectivity, harmonic mitigation, and programmability with multiple motor control modes and a 1_550-hp range. The removable control panel resembles a mobile phone, featuring multilingual text, graphic display, drive monitoring, parameter setup, and multicontroller copy functions. The drive reduces harmonics by up to 25%, compared to conventional filter designs. Its software enables fast setup, simple configuration, rapid fault diagnosis with repair suggestions, and energy consumption monitor.

DC flywheel

Model VSS-120 flywheel power system provides a stable, reliable, low maintenance, extended life dc voltage source to condition or replace batteries in uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems. As a battery conditioner, it minimizes battery discharge whiplash effects, while preserving battery capacity. In some situations, the flywheel system can replace batteries. The system delivers 2400 kW-sec of energy, sufficient to support loads from 120 kW for 20 sec to 10 kVA for 5 min. It requires 6 sq ft of floor space and is designed to operate for 15 yr before any major service is required.
