1. TECHNICAL DATA The device belongs to the Modulex 3 line, and processes with a numerical technique two phase voltages to provide the automatic synchronization besides several additional functions. The user's interface is available locally through the presence of a display unit and remotely through a LONWORKS (TM)b bus with a control and monitoring system. It is furthermore capable of dialoguing with a Personal Computer through a special connector placed on the relay front and an interface programme; this feature makes it easier and safer to programme the setting and configure parameters and read the set values, measurements and logged events; the programming can also be performed from previously created files. Control functions: max. rated frequency/bar frequency deviation max rated frequency/generator frequency deviation max. rated voltage /bar voltage deviation min. generator voltage value max frequency difference max. frequency voltage difference max. phase difference max. time for parallel operation execution max. no.of parallel attempts live bar/dead bar control possibility of two settings groups - spare and main settings

possibility of selecting, for each LED, the monostable or bistable operating mode (stored) optoinsulated digital inputs which can be programmed for control and reset functions. These can be individually enabled by normal energizing or de-energizing, on front or o on level. They can also be used to control the continuity of the tripping circuit partial and total counters for each kind of event

2. GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS The device features a mechanical casing that is 4U in height and as wide as to allow up to 4 pieces to be accommodated in a 19" rack in addition to normal flush-mounting. The casing is made of hot-galvanized PVC-coated plate frame inside which the movable part that carries all the electronic circuits and the local interface slides on guides. The pull-out action is facilitated by special 'handles', which, when the device is "plugged in", are also used to lock the two parts. The aluminium frame of the moving part renders the latter excellently rigid. The device/system interface terminal blocks are located on the rear side of the casing and, for each electrical connection, a screw clamp is available to receive up to 2 cable terminals, 4mm2 i in size; using a special accessory that is included in the supply, the connection can also be made by means of Faston units. Special error-sensing codes avoid inserting relays other than those compatible with the housing. A cover lid classes the terminal block within the IP20 protection. When the movable part is pulled out, the voltage and auxiliary circuits are disconnected. The device front bears two labels: one plate listing the factory settings of the device, namely auxiliary voltage and frequency; the other plate, always in accordance with the factory settings, provides a description of LED signals. Both these plates can be easily replaced with new ones, showing all the information as required by the client. As far as the factory settings relevant to output relays, LEDs, digital inputs and relative settings are concerned, refer to tables A, B and C. 3. OPERATION 3.1 Parallel sequence start

MDE/A133 2295 001

Upon enabling the digital input associated with LB start (with enabling characteristic on front) the stability timer td is started to allow any external settings to be made; when the td time is over, the device begins the parallel sequence. The sequence can be stopped by enabling the digital input associated with STOP, An EXT 1 or An EXT 2 (respectively, for manual sequence interruption or external failures). In this case, the command relative to the synchronization sequence interrupted by STOP or an external event EXT1 or EXT2 as well as any signal corresponding to the event are sent; the partial and total counter corresponding to the mentioned event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. Once the parallel has been performed, the sequence is interrupted when the signal of "closed breaker" is received (enabling of the digital input associated with CH52). 3.2 Voltage regulator 3.2.1 Max. deviation bar voltage/rated voltage The device works by comparing the Ub bar voltage with the Ubn bar rated voltage. When the deviation between the voltages exceeds the DUb set value, the 'START request failed' command - due to Ub out-oftolerance condition - as well as any signal corresponding to the event are sent; the partial and total counter relative to the event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. 3.2.2 Min. generator voltage The device works by comparing the Ug generator voltage with the Ugn generator rated voltage. When the Ug voltage falls below the DUg set value, the 'START request failed' command - due to Ug out-of-tolerance condition as well as any signal corresponding to the event are sent; the partial and total counter relative to the mentioned event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. 3.2.3 Max. voltage difference The device works by comparing the Ub bar voltage with the Ug generator voltage. When the difference between the modules of the two voltages modules expressed in Ubn and Ugn multiples, exceeds the DU set value, the 'voltage increase' (if Ug<Ub) or 'voltage decrease' (if Ug>Ub) command is sent. The voltage increase/decrease commands can be of 'continuous' or 'pulse' type depending on the regulation mode that has been set, that is CPU CONT or PULSE. If the PULSE mode has been set, the pulse time is defined by the tupu set parameter; the min. pulse interval is given by the tupa set parameter. The device makes it possible to obtain Ubn and Ugn values that are different from each other. This allows the parallel to be performed even with one TV installed upstream and the other installed downstream a transformer with Yd group; this is made by using, on one side, a phase-phase voltage and, on the other, the corresponding neutral-phase voltage without the application of any TV adapter.

3.3 Frequency regulator 3.3.1Max. deviation rated frequency/ bar frequency The device works by comparing the fb bar frequency with the fn rated frequency. When the deviation between the two frequencies exceeds theDfb set value, the 'START request failed' command - due to fb outof-tolerance condition - as well as any signal corresponding to the event are sent; the partial and total counter relative to the mentioned event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. 3.3.2Max. deviation rated frequency/ generator frequency The device works comparing the fg generator frequency with the rated frequency. When the deviation between the two frequencies exceeds the Dfg set value, the 'START request failed' command - due to fg outof-tolerance condition - as well as any signal corresponding to the event, are sent; the partial and total counter relative to the event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. 3.3.3 Max. frequency difference The device works by comparing the fb bar frequency with the fg generator frequency. When the difference between the two frequencies exceed the Df set value, the 'frequency increase' (if fg<fb) or 'frequency decrease' (if fg>fb) command is sent. The frequency increase/decrease commands can be of 'continuous' or 'pulse' type depending on the regulation mode that has been set, that is CPf CONT or PULSE. If the PULSE mode has been set, the pulse time is defined by the tfpu set parameter; the min. pulse interval is given by the tfpa set parameter. If the phase difference between bar and generator constantly lies above the Dp set threshold, after a time interval equal to tfpm has expired since the last frequency increase/decrease command, the following types of desynchronization commands will be sent: 'frequency increase' in the event of SUPERSYNC live bar parallel mode or 'frequency decrease' in the event of SUBSYNClive bar parallel mode; in case of NORM live bar parallel mode the 'increase' command will be sent when the generator is in 'delay' condition compared to the bar, whereas the 'decrease' command will be sent when the generator is in 'advance' condition.

MDE/A133 2295 001


3.4 Load pulse and parallel command When none of the following thresholds: DUb, DUg, DU, Dfb, Dfg, Df, Dp is tripping, the protection sends a parallel command with a pulse duration equal to tc; the command is sent with a n advance time equal to tr (breaker trip time) compared to the expected Dp=0 phase difference instant: this to allow the breaker to be closed just when the voltages are in phase with each other. If after the twc time the breaker is not closed (corresponding digital input enabling failed) and the parallel conditions are still acceptable, a further closing command is sent; the max. number of commands is defined by the set Ns. If after the last attempt the breaker is not closed, the 'failed synchronization sequence' command - once the max. number of attempts has been reached - as well as any signal corresponding to the event will be sent; the partial and total counter relative to the event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. In the same way, if the sequence has not been terminated after the max. time ts defined for the parallel sequence, the 'failed synchronization sequence' command - following a timeout condition - as well as any signal corresponding to the event will be sent; the partial and total counter relative to the mentioned event is incremented and the event logging is enabled. On receiving the 'breaker closed' signal, the 'correctly-performed synchronization sequence' command is sent, the event logging is also enabled. Together with the 'breaker closing' command, in the event of LP load pulse in ON mode, a frequency increase pulse is issued for a time duration equal to tlp. This frequency increase pulse and, therefore, the system speed are aimed at preventing energy returns from occurring. 3.5 Dead-bar mode The device can even be used to feed an out-of-voltage bar (dead bar): the generator parameter can be set before the breaker closing. The sequence start occurs upon enabling the digital input associated with a DB start (with enabling characteristic on front). The dead-bar level is defined by the Ud set value; below the said value the bar is considered as not-fed. 3.5.1 DB dead-bar mode OFF Any request of dead-bar synchronization is ignored. 3.5.2 DB dead-bar mode ON The device checks that the generator frequency and voltage lie within the limits defined by Dfg and DUg, by controlling the parallel breaker closing without carrying out any adjusting action.

pag. 8

MX3EG1A
3.5.3 DB dead-bar mode ON-CHECK The device checks that the generator frequency and voltage lie within the limits defined by Dfb and DUb: if these do not lie within the mentioned limits, the device carries out all the adjusting operations necessary to make them lie within the range of values defined. The 'parallel breaker closing' command will be then sent. 3.6 Main and spare settings The device can store two groups of settings, namely 'main' and spare', which can be selected through keyboard, PC or network. The group of setting being used is shown on the display as 'SETTINGS IN USE'. Independently of the selection made, the device can be 'forced' to use the SPARE settings. This 'forcing' can be carried out from the network or by permanently enabling the digital input (IN DIG 1) configured to such aim. This condition is signalled by the characters <!> which appear near the group already selected; when the input is disabled, the group of settings previously selected is restored and the characters <!> disappear (see paragraph 6.1.3). 4. ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS 4.1 Diagnostics

MDE/A133 2295 001

Diagnostic activities are envisaged which are automatically carried out upon powering on the device as well as from time to time during the running, and which allow the following actions to be performed: - signalling fault or failure conditions. This signal de-energizes the diagnostic relay, turns off the green LED (running device) and turns on the red LED ( faulty device); - locking out the device in the event of faults that might entail illtimed operation (VITAL FAULTS) - displaying the code referring to the type of fault occurred. The following faults are defined as NOT VITAL FAULTS: - output relay (X1 - X5) faulty - communication faulty - internal clock faulty The following faults are defined as VITAL FAULTS: - feeder faulty - EEPROM faulty - internal or exteranl RAM faulty - analog/digital converter faulty In the event of vital faults the device automatically displays the code relative to the kind of fault occurred; if allowed by the device, this condition can only be solved by enabling the 'settings change' command. In the event that, upon starting up the equipment, an EEPROM failure makes it impossible to retrieve the information on the selected dialogue language, the device will continue on working using Italian as default language. The device includes the 'Watch Dog'. The diagnostic activity is also aimed at signalling any condition of 'inhibited equipment': the relevant code is displayed, the diagnostic relay is de-energized and the red LED (faulty device) lights on. This condition can only be solved by enabling the 'settings change' command. The diagnostic menu also indicates the date when last changes were made to the equipment. 4.2 Output circuits The output circuits are composed of six relays: each of them is provided with two contacts (see block diagram). The X6 relay, normally energized, is strictly assigned to the diagnostic function. Each remaining relay, if duly programmed from the keyboard, PC or network, can be set to carry out one or more functions. The operation of these six relays is of monostable type: that is, it allows to immediate return to the quiescent position when the cause that operated it is removed. The output relays, except for the diagnostic relays, can all be simultaneously set to 'normally energized' (NORMAL.ON=ON) or to 'normally de-energized' (NORMAL.ON=OFF): the selection occurs bymeans of the S1 jumper which is accessible when the relay has been pulled out (see fig. 2a, 2b).

pag. 9

MX3EG1A
4.3 LED signalling circuits The signalling circuits are made up of twelve LEDs (see fig. 3). Four LEDs are strictly assigned to previously established signalling functions: - green LED (Uaux) ON in the presence of power supply and correct feeder output voltage values - green LED (RUN) ON with fixed light in normal conditions and blinking light during setting change or test operations - red LED (RUN) ON with fixed light when the diagnostics detects a fault or the device is inhibited. - green LED (Rx Tx) ON with fixed light when the device is correctly connected to the network; ON with blinking light when the communication board is not enabled or configured; OFF when the device is provided with no communication board. Each of the eight remaining LEDs, if duly programmed from the keyboard, PC or network, can be: - assigned to one or more control outputs or, in the event of failures or events, - pre-set for : - monostable operation; it immediately goes off when the cause that made it go on is removed - bistable operation (MEMOR): the LED remains on until a reset signal is sent from the front push-button, digital input or serial connection. Any failure of auxiliary voltage entails the momentary loss of the luminous signals, which are reset as soon as the voltage is restored. A pocket is provided close to the LEDs, where explanatory labels can be placed. 4.4 Digital inputs If duly programmed from the keyboard, PC or network, each of the five optoinsulated inputs can be assigned to one or more of the following functions referring to the device. - Start LB - Start DB - Synchronism Stop - Ch52 parallel breaker closing - EXT1, EXT2 external failure The factory settings envisage that the above mentioned functions are assigned according to the block diagram (fig. 3). The input voltage can differ from the auxiliary voltage of the device. The enabling of the digital inputs can be programmed by normally energizing or de-energizing or on front or level. WARNING: the digital inputs associated with the Start LB and Start DB functions must be ON on front , whereas all the other functions must be ON on level. 4.5 Counters Each type of tripping is associated with a partial or total counter (see paragraph 6.1.7). The counters work within the 0-9999 range; if 9999 is exceeded, the counter is automatically set to zero and the counting restarts from zero. All the partial counters can be set to zero from the keyboard, from PC or network. 4.6 Event log

MDE/A133 2295 001

When an event occurs, the following information is stored in circulating memory: - day, month, year, time, minute, second and thousandth of a second concerning the tripping moment - type of event - bar frequency - generator frequency - bar voltage - generator voltage - phase difference - total parallel time - number of parallel attempts All this information is called 'event'. The circulating memory allows the last eight events to be stored, and when this number is exceeded, a new record replaces the older: the last event is stored as EVENT 1. The stored events can be read from the front display unit or from a PC serially connected to the device. Furthermore, the device can store the last 32 changes of state (with relative date and time) and make them readable through PC or network only. 4.7 Measurements The device can display the effective current values concerning the bar voltage expressed in Ubn multiples, the generator voltage expressed in Ugn multiples, the bar and generator frequency expressed in Hz, and the phase difference expressed in grades. It also displays the effective current primary values relative to the bar and generator voltage expressed in V. 4.8 Test Besides the normal diagnostics already dealt with, the device also offers, in the TEST mode, the possibility of testing the leds, the display and the output relays. - The LED test turns on all the LEDs from L1 to L8 and the display unit (LCD) for two seconds. Once the test is over, the LEDs that were supposed to be ON before the test remain ON and the display unit goes back to the previous information displayed; the test can be carried out during any running condition, without affecting the operation in progress. - The relay test allows the output relays from X1 to X5 to be sequentially selected and checked for correct operation. IN this way, any external signalling or control circuit can be tested. The tested relay remains energized for 150 and 200 ms. If commands are already present, the test cannot be carried out and a message appears on the display unit. The test on auxiliary relays does not affect counters, event logs and LEDs.

4.9 Alphanumeric code The device can be identified in the system by an alphanumeric code, which can be set by the user directly on the equipment code or from a PC. With a network-linked device, the alphanumeric code can only be modified by operating through the network. 4.10 Language The device can display information in four languages: Italian, English, French and Spanish. The language can be selected through the keyboard. 4.11 LCD settings The display can be set for fixed (OFF) or timed (ON) backlighting; in the last case, the display lights up for 300s any time a key is pressed. 4.12 Inhibiting operation-deconfiguration from network Inhibiting the device is useful in already operating systems, to avoid troubles when a protection is to be fed with voltage whose settings are not known or meant to be changed. The inhibiting occurs by keeping the 'setting change' key pressed for about 2s, and using auxiliary voltage simultaneously until the following message is displayed: [ BLOC ] [ ] When the said key is released, the condition of the inhibited device is signalled with a message in the P fault diagnostics. The operation reset is only made possible by selecting the setting change function, which is however enabled; a momentary loss of the auxiliary voltage does not change the device inhibition state. If the device is equipped with a network board, from the BLOC condition, by furtherly keeping the setting change key pressed for about 2s, the following message is displayed: [ NET RESET ? ] [_ NO YES _] If confirmed, the device can even leave its network configuration. The complete network de-configuration and inhibiting procedure is necessary every time the device must be replaced. The reset of an inhibited and de-configured device entails the displaying of K fault messages until a new setting of the device itself has not been made. The operation reset is only made possible by selecting the setting change function, which is however enabled.

4.13 Serial communication on LONWORKS (TM) bus In the version including the bus board, the device can communicate with a central monitoring and control system at a speed of 1.2 5 Mbaud. The connection to the field bus is made through terminals: 43 and 45. The communication board, which can even be added afterwards, is enabled only if the special jumper is provided in S6, and is disabled when the mentioned jumper is placed vertically between S5 and S6 (see fig.1). The positioning of the jumper in S6 without the above mentioned communication board, causes, just as a faulty board, a failure message to be displayed in the diagnostics function. In the Appendix A all the data available for the network are shown.

4.14 RS485 serial communication on MODBUS protocol Devices with 2.00 and higher software versions can feature three different kinds of communication: - no communication board (version MX3EG1A .11 and .12); - LonWorks(TM) communication board (version MX3EG1A .61 and .62); - Modbus communication board (version MX3EG1A .71 and .72); The type of communication board installed is automatically recognized. In the event of device with LonWorks(TM) communication board it is necessary to carry out the connection as provided for and set all the connected devices. This is automatically possible by connecting a PC equipped with PCLTA10 or SLTA10 board to a CORMOX2 programme. In the event of device with Modbus communication board, each relay can be set through the front interface or through the IRMA2 programme installed on PC connected to the front serial port. The configuration can be carried out even on relays which are still connected to one another and can be pre-set on files together with other information.

4.15 Oscilloperturbography The device can record the course of the two input voltages - Ub and Ug - and the logic states of the: 8 LEDs, 5 auxiliary relays and 5 digital inputs. The total recording time equals 2.5s, and can be divided into variable time before start-up and variable time after start-up. The oscilloperturbography function can be started for: remote control (from PC or network) of Start LB or Start DB, remote control of Stop, synchronization sequence correctly concluded, synchronization sequence failed, digital input enabling. The selection of the start parameters, the graphic display and the oscilloperturbography function reset can be made through PC or network. The function reset can also be enabled by interrupting the auxiliary voltage for a short time.

The configuration of the Modbus communication board requires the following parameters:

It allows the menu to be scrolled to the left and the value to change to be selected if the settings change function is enabled. [ ] It allows the stored LEDs indications to be reset if the cause has been removed, or the partial counters to be reset if they are in the 'display counters' menu. It sets the end relays to quiescent state when they are set to bistable operation. If pressed for at least 2s, this key allows the settings to be changed; when the settings change function is enabled, the green LED (RUN) lights up blinking. If pressed once again for at least 2sec., the system goes back to normal running conditions and, provided that a confirmation is given, the new settings become the current ones (the key can only be reached by removing the cover lid). During the settings-change operations the device continues working with the old settings. If the changes made are confirmed in the presence of a fault, the changes are not accepted until the event is over: the interrupt state is signalled for 3sec by a message on the display unit, after which you are prompted to confirm the changes made. If pressed when feeding the device with auxiliary voltage until a failure message appears on the display, this key inhibits the device from operating. Keys If simultaneously pressed for at least 2sec, these keys allow the protection Test to be carried out. When the testing activity is enabled, the green LED (RUN) lights up blinking. If simultaneously pressed for 2 sec. during the TEST routing, these keys enable you to leave the protection testing mode.

8. INSTALLATION - TRANSPORT 8.1 ESD electrostatic charges The device uses electronic components that are sensitive to electrostatic charges; therefore, the operator who happens to handle the moving part of the equipment and come into contact with the electronc circuits, must take preventive measures to avoid damaging the relay: - before removing the moving part, the operator shall reach the same potential as the unit by touching the housing (for instance, the cover grips); - avoid touching electronic components, printed circuits and connectors; - lay the element on surfaces that are antistatic or feature zero potential. As far as the following action is possible, do not pull out the moving part from the casing to avoid causing mechanical and electrostatic damages to the protection. 8.2 Acceptance-storage Although protective relays are generally of solid construction, they require to be handled with particular care before being installed on site. They must be carefully packed and unpacked without applying any force and using suitable tools. Once supplied, the relays must be throughly inspected to ensure that they have been not damaged during the transport. If the relays are not immediately installed upon reception, they must be stored in places free from dust or moisture, in their original casing. Storage temperature: -25C + 80C. 8.3 Assembling and connection - Remove the protection guard to allow the four fastening holes to be reached. - Place the device into the hole of the panel-board and secure it by fastening the four screws (see fig. 4). - Connect the ground screw of the device to the panel's grounding system through a cable of suitable gauge (>4mm2) and shortest length (<1m). - Perform the wiring using the screw or faston couplings of the interface terminal boards. In order to guarantee the terminal board the protection class IP20 required, during the faston wiring the cover lid must be placed before the faston is connected to the relay. During the screw wiring the side fins of the IP20 cover lid corresponding to the wired terminals must be removed or bent. The assembling as well as the connections shall be workmanlike performed.

MDE/A133 2295 001


9. SETTING THE UNIT AT WORK The device is supplied with factory settings and configurations as indicated in tables A, B and C (factory settings). These settings may prove not to suit the specific plant where the unit is to be installed. Therefore, the device must be reset: to this aim, refer to tables D, E and F for customer's use as support to develop a customised setting scheme. 9.1 Safety regulations During the equipment tests and start-up the general safety regulations applicable to electrical systems must be complied with. Failure to comply with the above-mentioned regulations might cause harm to personnel or damage to property. All the inspections and tests shall be carried out by specially trained personnel. 9.2 Checking nameplate ratings Make sure that the equipment ratings are consistent with those of the system, namely: - auxiliary voltage - output relays normally energized or normally de-energized; the control must be carried out by checking the position of the cordless plug placed on the board (see fig. 2a, 2b) - the presence of the special S6 cordless plug, see fig.1, if the communication board is included and the network is available.

I CAUTION Hazardous voltages can remain in the unit even in the absence of power supply, or after it has been pulled out of its casing (capacitor storage).
9.3 Final inspection Feed the device with auxiliary voltage. On starting the device after a long time of power failure, the device can show a fault of 'L' type (internal clock), a NOT VITAL fault which does not affect the remaining functions: please, update DATE and TIME to restore normal conditions. If the system is running and the device settings are unknown, in order to avoid any malfunctioning, it is necessary to inhibit the device operation, before using the auxiliary voltage, by pressing the setting change key (see paragraphs 4.12 and 6.1.13). Select the rated frequency of the system, the Ub (bar side) and Ug (generator side) rated voltages and set the TV primary voltage values. Load the settings and configure relays, leds, digital inputs as provided for in the design plan. As the device is provided with a self-monitoring system, all hardware and software failures are automatically signalled: this makes it useless to control the thresholds for accuracy, which can however be tested by making reference to the stated tolerances.

pag. 23

MX3EG1A
In any case, it is advisable to carry out the following tests: Feeder test - Check that the burden of the auxiliary voltage circuit falls within 5 and 10W as regards d.c. supply, and within 10 and 20VA as regards a.c. supply. The feeder is protected by a special 5x20 rapid fuse, class IEC127/II of 2A as regards unit with 19-100Vcc (or 19-72Vca) auxiliary voltage, and of 1A as regards unit with 64-300Vcc (or 64-275Vca) auxiliary voltage. Checking connections - Apply a voltage signal to bar side and generator side TVs and ensure that these correspond to the indications shown in the MEASUREMENTS menu. - Check each output relay by following the procedure described in the TEST MENU paragraph: simultaneously check the relevant external circuit. - Make sure that the digital input wiring corresponds to the one provided for in the design plans. If the relay has not worked correctly or indicates failures of VITAL type, it must be put out of order and sent back to the factory for repair or re-gauging. Any NOT VITAL failure does not lead to an immediate tripping: however, it requires the type of fault to be analysed so as to determine the relative entity (for instance, a not running relay might be replaced with another not used or whose function is however not essential). The interchangeability of the devices makes it possible to refer to the protection diagram during any repairing action, replacing the faulty device with one of the same type. To complete the start-up stage, before setting the system at work, ensure that: - the device settings are consistent with the ones of the design - the device shows the correct identification alphanumeric code, if any - all the device memories (leds, max. values, partial counters, and wear index) have been reset - the Uaux and RUN green leds are lit up; in case of network connection, the RxTx green led must also be lit up - the LEDs indicating labels and the general rating plate of the device bear the correct information. You can leave the device with the display showing any of the windows of the main reading menu.
