# The DC Drive

In the beginning

Speed Reference Minimum Speed Maximum Speed Acceleration Deceleration Current Limit

Speed Reference
Typically it is a potentiometer that an operator turns to adjust the speed of the machine.

Minimum Speed
How fast the machine will operate with the Speed Reference turned all the way DOWN.

Maximum Speed
How fast the machine will operate with the Speed Reference turned all the way UP.

Acceleration Rate
How much time it will take to go from stop to full speed.

Deceleration Rate
How much time it will take to go from full speed to stop.

Current Limit
This limits the amount of current coming out of the drive. Its based on the motors Full Load Amps.

## Basic DC Drive Operations

Speed Reference - How fast you want the machine to go. Can be analog 0 - 10vdc or 4 - 20mA signal from a controller. Can also be a adjustment via parameter, network data or keypad input Signal is modified by Min. and Max. Speed Adjustments Goes to the Ramp Circuits

## Basic DC Drives Operations

Ramp (Rate) circuits get the speed reference and ramps the signal up over a period of time. The time periods are adjustable via a pot, parameter or network data. Output goes to a summing junction.

## Basic DC Drive Operations

Summing Junction
Takes the signal from the Ramp circuits and adds them together with some sort of feedback. Feedbacks can be speed,voltage or current. The result out of the summing junction is an error signal indicating the difference between the speed reference and the feedback. Another way to look at it is difference between how fast I want it to go verses how fast it is actually going Output goes to the Major Loop (Speed or Voltage Loop)

## Major Loop Operational Amplifier (Loop 2)

The speed error signal from the summing junction is the input. This amplifies the error signal. There is a feedback loop around the amplifier. This loop has a resister and capacitor (digital drives would be integrator and proportional response) Tuning these values of the feedback loop will affect the overall response (stability) of the drive.

## Second Summing Junction

The input to this junction is the amplified error signal out of the Major Loop (Loop 2) operational amplifier. The signal is now called Current Reference. Current Reference is Summed together with the current feedback signal. The output signal goes to the Current Minor Loop (Loop 1) Operational Amplifier.

## Basic DC Drive Operations

Current Minor Loop (Loop 1) The current error signal from the summing junction is the input. This amplifies the error signal. There is a feedback loop around the amplifier which is a resistor and capacitor. (Digital drives is Integrator & Proportional response) Tuning these values will affect overall response (stability) of the drive.

## Gate Pulse Driver Circuits

These circuits provide the pulse to the gate inputs on all the SCRs. Input from CML. Everything in the drive up to this point is there to tell these circuits when to fire.

## Basic DC Drive Operations

Power Module
This is where the SCRs live. The Power Module has AC power connected to it which is what gets switched (through the SCRs) to the motor armature circuit as DC.

SCR Construction

## Basic DC Drive Operations

Motor
The interaction of 2 magnetic fields causes rotation (armature & field). Typically the Field coils have a constant voltage applied and we vary the voltage in the armature to get variable speed (up to Base speed) To go above base speed we have constant maximum voltage in the armature and then we weaken the field voltage.

## 3 Basic Types of Braking

Coast to Rest Dynamic Braking Regenerative Braking

Braking Methods

Coast to Rest
The application coasts to a stop. Time to rest is determined by Friction, Windage and Inertia of the load.

Dynamic Braking
Inertia contained in a load causes the load to continue rotating generating a voltage and current in the armature circuit opposite in direction of motoring and being dropped across a high wattage resistor.

Braking Methods

Regeneration
Inertia contained in a load causes the load to continue rotating generating a voltage and current in the armature circuit opposite in direction of motoring current. Using a second set of SCRs connected opposite than the first set, these are fired so that current flow is allowed to flow in the opposite direction back to the AC line supply.
