  • Vdc takes on Vac [system control voltage selection]

    Publication Year: 2003, Page(s):56 - 63
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1205 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Selecting a system control voltage should be made based on careful consideration of several factors. The two common voltages being utilized in North American process-control applications include 120 Vac and 24 Vdc. The use of 120 Vac control is currently more common in industrial applications in North America. Extreme care should be taken to assure safety from potential electrical shock. Although ...

    Electrical-safety training should be discussed and taught to people from early childhood throughout their careers. Effective electrical-safety training is a "soft" technology that is never complete. As knowledge is generated, the new information should be offered to the entire community for acceptance or rejection. Effective electrical-safety training is a critical element of an effective electric... View full abstract»

    One major US chemical manufacturing site has implemented a safety initiative dealing with cord-connected electrical equipment that exceeds regulatory requirements. The program includes mandatory use of GFCI devices for all 120-Vac equipment used in the plant, as well as annual inspections and visually discernable exterior bonding requirements for higher voltage cord-connected equipment.

    The problems that California had with electrical energy have only emphasized the need to look at the true cost of high-efficiency energy devices used by cement plants since electrical energy is among the top expenses in producing cement. This article focuses on low-voltage induction motors and lighting systems. Low-voltage induction motors generally account for about 30% of the electrical energy c... View full abstract»

    This article demonstrates the effectiveness of a fuzzy-logic controller to automatically operate an HEV S/G (hybrid electric vehicle starter/generator) at its maximum efficiency under static conditions and over industry-standard road-profile dynamic loads. The effects of transient behavior and controller bandwidth are investigated. Experimental results also show that reduced heating can be achieve... View full abstract»

    An economical energy storage device that bridges the gap caused by voltage sags and temporary voltage loss for an extruder process line is discussed. The system used is a flywheel storage system that provides an AC output. It has performed well, protecting the load from sags and momentary power outages and even responding to capacitor switching events. Close to 40 s of ridethrough is available to ...

    Preventing the increase in pressure within a piece of metal-clad switchgear due to an uncontrolled open arcing fault can be achieved by using an arc terminator. The arc terminator constitutes a bypass system that confines the effect of an arcing fault to its point of initiation. It is composed primarily of a high-speed mechanical switch, and an electronic control module. In the event of an arcing ... View full abstract»
