SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1.3.1 General:

1. The static uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system will provide continuous, high quality, conditioned, AC output power to the Toll Equipment Clean Power

Panelboard. The UPS will protect the Toll Equipment Clean Power Panelboard from power disturbances on the normal power distribution system due to power blackouts, brownouts, surges, or noise interference. Beginning with fully charged batteries, the UPS will provide high quality, conditioned output power for 15 minutes at full (100% rated) load with no AC input power to charge the batteries.

2. The UPS system will contain an internal isolation transformer to electrically isolate the output power from the input power. The UPS system will meet the NEC definition of a separately derived electrical distribution system.

3. The UPS system will be of modular design and will consist of multiple power modules and multiple battery modules. All modules will operate simultaneously

and share the load equally. Modules may be added or replaced while the UPS is online with no interruption or danger to the connected equipment.

1.3.2 MODES OF OPERATION

A.

The UPS is designed to operate as a true on-line system in the following modes:

1.

Normal - The critical AC load is continuously supplied by the UPS inverter.

The input converter derives power from a utility AC source and supplies DC power to the inverter. The battery charger maintains a float-charge on the battery.

2.

Back-up - Upon failure of utility AC power the critical AC load is supplied by the inverter. In this mode the inverter is powered from the battery. There is no interruption in power to the critical load upon failure or restoration of the utility AC source.

3.

Recharge - Upon restoration of utility AC power, the input converter will automatically restart and resume supplying power to the inverter. The battery charger will resume recharge of the battery.

4.

Automatic Restart - After a utility AC power outage and complete battery discharge, the UPS will automatically restart and resume supplying power to the critical load. In addition, the battery charger will automatically recharge the battery. This feature is enabled (factory default) and will be capable of being disabled by the user. The user will also be able to program two auto restart delay settings a.

b.

Battery capacity % level

Countdown timer

5.

Bypass - The internal bypass will provide an alternate path for power to the critical load and is capable of operating in the following manner:

1.

Automatic - In the event of an internal failure or should the inverter overload capacity be exceeded, the UPS will perform an automatic transfer of the critical AC load from the inverter to the bypass source.

2. Manual - Should the UPS need to be taken out of service for limited maintenance or repair, manual activation of the internal bypass will cause an immediate transfer of the critical AC load from the inverter to the internal bypass source. The input converter, inverter, and battery charging operations will continue to operate, provided the control enable switch is

COMPONENTS

2.2.1

INPUT CONVERTER

A.

General: Incoming AC power is converted to a regulated DC output by the input converter for supplying DC power to the inverter. The input converter provides input power factor and input current distortion correction.

B.

AC Input Current Limit

The input converter is provided with AC input over current protection.

C.

Input Protection

1.

The UPS has built-in protection against under voltage, over current, and overvoltage conditions including low-energy surges introduced on the primary

AC source and the bypass source. The UPS can sustain input surges without damage per criteria listed in IEEE C62.41, Category A & B. The UPS cabinet contains an input breaker sized to supply full 20 kVA rated load and to recharge the battery at the same time.

D.

Battery Recharge

1. To prolong battery life, the UPS contains temperature-compensated battery charging. When an equal number of power modules and battery modules are installed the battery charger is able to recharge the internal batteries to 90% charge in six hours at nominal input voltage and nominal ambient temperature.

E. Charger Output Filter

1. The battery charger is a DC power supply to minimize ripple current into the battery.

5.2.1

INVERTER

A.

General

1. The inverter converts DC power from the input converter output, or the battery, into precise regulated sine wave AC power for supporting the critical AC load.

B.

Overload

1. The inverter is capable of supplying current and voltage for overloads exceeding

100% and up to 200% of full load current. A visual indicator and audible alarm indicates overload operation. For greater currents or longer time duration, the inverter has electronic current-limiting protection to prevent damage to components. The inverter is self-protecting against any magnitude of connected output overload. Inverter control logic senses and disconnects the inverter from the critical AC load without the requirement to clear protective fuses. The load

will be transferred to bypass when any of the above conditions are exceeded.

C.

Maximum Load Alarm

1. The user can set the alarm point to a value less than 100% rating such that the

UPS will alarm before an overload condition or loss of redundancy is reached.

D.

Output Frequency

1. The output frequency of the inverter is controlled by an oscillator. The oscillator will hold the inverter output frequency to +/- 0.5% for steady state and transient conditions. The inverter tracks the bypass continuously, providing the bypass source maintains a frequency within the user-selected synchronization range. If the bypass source fails to remain within the selected range, the inverter will revert to the internal oscillator.

E.

Output Protection

1. The UPS inverter employs electronic current limiting.

F.

Battery over Discharge Protection

1. To prevent battery damage from over discharging, the UPS control logic controls the shutdown voltage set point. This point is dependent on the rate of discharge.

5.2.2

DISPLAY AND CONTROLS

A.

General

1. The front panel will consist of multiple status LEDs, switches, and a four line by twenty character LCD display for additional alarm/configuration following:

AC Input

UPS Shutdown

3. If there is a fault condition, the UPS will attempt to maintain conditioned power to the load, or at minimum transfer to bypass. There will also be a visual indication on each module should the module fail and need to be replaced.

4. In addition to an audible/visual fault signal the UPS also records fault occurrences in a rolling event log. The event log on the standard unit can record up to 255 occurrences, with the oldest events discarded first, etc. The user has access to the event log through the LCD display. Every alarm and/or event recorded in the event log will contain a time and date stamp.

B.

Audible Alarms

1. The volume of all audible alarms is at least 65dBA at a distance of three feet

(one meter). An audible alarm is used in conjunction with the LED/LCD indication to indicate a change in UPS status.

2. The audible alarms enunciate for utility line loss, low battery (while on battery), and all other alarm conditions. For all alarm conditions, the user must look at the display to determine the cause of error/alarm. All alarm tones are a continual tone until the condition rectifies itself or the alarm is silenced. Once silenced, the audible alarm will not sound until a new alarm condition is present.

C.

Alarm Silence Button

1. In addition to the load On/Off switch, the user interface includes an audible

Alarm Silence’ current audible alarms will be disabled. If a new alarm occurs, or a cancelled alarm condition disappears and then re-appears, the audible alarm is re-enabled.

A.

The UPS will initiate an automatic battery testing sequence periodically, at a programmed day and time of day, selectable by the end user. The user will be able to select the interval of the battery test and will be able to select 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 week intervals, or can select to disable the automatic battery test.

B.

Should a battery failure occur, the battery module will disconnect itself from the critical DC bus and the UPS will immediately return to normal mode and fault signals (visual, audible, and remote via serial) will be communicated. No audible or remote (via serial/contact closures) indication of the battery test is communicated during the duration of the automatic battery test.

C.

Schedule the automatic battery test for a four week interval to occur on Wednesdays at 10:00 AM.

2.2.5

REMOTE EMERGENCY POWER OFF (REPO)

A. The remote emergency power off function (REPO) allows the user to disable all UPS outputs in an emergency situation. The REPO, in order to be flexible, will be able to interface with either normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) systems. The

REPO is activated when a pair of contacts, external to the UPS, is activated. The

REPO connection is through a simple terminal block type connector.

B. The REPO function will not operate if no system control modules are present in the

UPS or if the manual bypass switch is in the bypass position. The user must supply a means of interfacing with the REPO circuit to allow disconnecting the UPS input feeder breaker to remove all sources of power to the UPS and the connected equipment to comply with local wiring codes/regulations.

C. Regardless of the UPS mode of operation when the REPO is activated, the UPS output will not be re-enabled until the following occurs:

 REPO contacts are reset (closed if N.C. contacts are used and open if N.O. contacts are used)

 Input circuit breaker is closed

A.

GENERAL

B.

1. An internal bypass circuit is provided as an integral part of the UPS. The bypass has an overload rating of 300% rated full load for 10 cycles and

1000% for sub-cycle fault clearing. The bypass control logic contains an automatic transfer control circuit that senses the status of the inverter logic signals, and operating and alarm conditions. This control circuit provides a transfer of the load to the bypass source, without exceeding the transient limits specified herein, when an overload or malfunction occurs within the UPS.

AUTOMATIC TRANSFER

1. The transfer control logic automatically activates the internal bypass,

C.

D.

transferring the critical AC load to the internal bypass source, after the transfer logic senses one of the following conditions:

Inverter overload capacity exceeded

Inverter over temperature

UPS fault condition

2. For inverter overload conditions, the transfer control logic inhibits an automatic transfer of the critical load to the bypass source if one of the following conditions exists: a. Inverter/Bypass voltage difference exceeding preset limits (±15 % of nominal) b. Bypass frequency out of preset limits (± 5 % of nominal frequency)

AUTOMATIC RETRANSFER

1. Retransfer of the critical AC load from the internal bypass source to the inverter output is automatically initiated unless inhibited by the manual control. The transfer control logic inhibits an automatic retransfer of the critical load to the inverter if one of the following conditions exists: a.

Bypass out-of-synchronization range with inverter output b.

Overload condition exists in excess of the inverter full load rating c.

UPS fault condition present

MANUAL TRANSFER

1. In addition to the internal bypass function, the UPS has a manual bypass function. The manual bypass function is provided via a switch mounted on the bottom-front of the UPS, removal of the lower front bezel is required. The actual AC break time between inverter and bypass is less than four milliseconds.

to wrap around the rectifier, battery charger, inverter, and battery in the same manner as the automatic bypass. The manual bypass does not wrap around the

EMI filtering, over current protection or isolation transformer.

3. The UPS will initiate an audible alarm upon transfer to manual bypass. The audible alarm is capable of being silenced by the user. The alarm will continue to sound (unless silenced) while in bypass mode. This shall provide a reminder to the user that the load continues to be powered from utility supply alone.

2.2.7

INTERNAL BATTERY

A.

Flame retardant, valve regulated, gas recombination, lead acid batteries shall be used as a stored-energy source for the specified UPS system. The battery is housed in separate replaceable modules that slide into any open bay of the UPS cabinet, and are sized to support the inverter at rated load and power factor, in an ambient temperature between 20° and 25° C, for a 7 minutes reserve time. The expected life of the battery is 3 to 5 years or a minimum 250 complete discharge cycles. For extended battery reserve time, additional battery modules may be added if the frame size allows; external battery cabinets are available as an option.
