Medium Voltage High Power Drives MV4000 MV6000 MV7000
With more than 100 years of experience in installed drive power, CONVERTEAM, formerly ALSTOM Power Conversion, now GE Power Conversion, is a recognised leader in the industry, providing reliable high-quality drives- produced at advanced manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States- for all industrial sectors in most countries of the world.

In November 2005, the ALSTOM Power Conversion division became Converteam. As a technology leader in the field of electrical energy conversion, with more than 3300 employees and an active presence in more than 80 countries, the new company became one of the key players in the industry and marine markets. In March 2011, GE Power acquired the majority stake of Converteam and integrates its operations in his GE Power Conversion division.

The broad product line ranges from simple off-the-shelf low voltage drives at only 0.25kW, up to the largest available engineered drives of over 100MW. And, because the company incorporates its own drives into other manufactured equipment and systems, years of user experience have guided the development of every one.

For systems integrators, who need high-quality drive components to build into their own drive solutions, CONVERTEAM range of drives also includes low voltage drive modules, inverters, and rectifiers up to 3.6MW. From simple to complex requirements from 200V fans or pump drives of a few kilowatts, to large conveyor drives with sinusoidal current return to the mains supply, to a medium voltage drive up to 10kV output without any transformer- CONVERTEAM drive range provides the solution. And for special drive applications, customised products and solutions are available on request.

Nowadays, our scope of supply is limited mainly to spare parts for the installed base, including original and OEM parts manufactured under ALSTOM, Converteam and/or GE licence.

ALSPA MV3000 and MV Delta

ALSPA MV3000 is a range of compact variable speed AC drives covering the majority of industrial applications from general purpose machinery to high performance process lines. Ranging from 22kW to 3.6MW, ALSPA MV3000 offers a choice of control modes including:

  • Variable Voltage Frequency Control
  • Open Loop Flux Vector Control (encoderless)
  • Closed Loop Flux Vector Control (with encoder)

    Building on the success of ALSPA GD3000E and ALSPA MD2000, the ALSPA MV3000 combines the functions of both into one package and adds further impressive features making it the choice for all variable speed drive users - no matter what the applications.
    Up to 315kW, the ALSPA MV3000 is in chassis unit format using the MicroCubicle™ concept. MicroCubicle™ means:

  • everything is front accessible
  • room inside the unit for application specific enhancements
  • bookcase format and side by side mounting for maximum packing density

    The Drive Data Manager™ redefines the keypad concept with menu navigation, on-line help, quick start and instrumentation facilities all wrapped up in an ergonomic design with a large, easy to read display

    From 315kW to 3,600kW, ALSPA MV3000 is available in DELTA format. DELTA format drives can be supplied either as a kit of parts ready for building into a cubicle or as a completely built and tested package ready for site installation. DELTA format drives are modular in construction. They use the same control system, Drive Data Manager™ as the ALSPA MV3000 chassis units. These are combined with up to 6 DELTA inverter modules running in parallel.
    DELTA format MV3000 is available air cooled from 300kW to 1,800kW or liquid cooled from 600kW to 3,600kW.

    Braking energy optimally exploited

    In many drive tasks, several induction motors work together: partly driving motor, partly regenerative braking (e.g. on gearbox test benches, coiler drives in rolling mills or on paper machines etc.).
    A common DC busbar for all inverter units allows utilisation of the braking energy – by the shortest distance without passing mains.
    Therefore the incoming supply of the DC busbar is to transmit a part of the entire power only.

    AC Drives - LV7000 Family

    The LV7000 family comprises compact and high performance drives. The key design feature is the software and hardware modularity. Two types of control are available – the standard sensor-less vector control and the closed loop flux vector control for more demanding applications. LV7000-1 is a space-saving compact drive whereas the LV7000-2 and 3 is a high-performance drive combined with powerful support for various software applications. In addition to the standard I/O in the basic drive, there is room for option cards with more I/O, fieldbus cards or additional application specific hardware. The option cards can be used in all three drive types: one option card in the LV7000-1 to expand the basic drive, and up to five option cards in the LV7000-2 and 3 to create the necessary configuration for your application.

    The drives are easy to program and use via the keypad. The keypad can easily be removed for hand held use or door mounting. The LV7000-1 has a detachable, seven-segment LCD keypad without memory capabilities. It is used to communicate with the drive, set parameters and for monitoring. The LV7000-2 and 3 have a detachable, alpha-numeric keypad with built-in memory. In addition it can be used to copy parameters between different drives and storage of the active parameters for future use.

    All Converteam LV7000-2 and LV7000-3 drives are delivered with the All in One application package, a selection of pre-installed applications. An application is a predefined set of parameters and functions, designed for a specific purpose. When you choose the application that corresponds to your requirements, the drive will be easy to set up. All required parameters are available, but the parameters which are not needed in the specific application, will be hidden. For each application there is a start-up wizard that will guide you through the start-up process and parameter settings. The drive is also capable of identifying motor parameters, further easing the start-up.
    All applications support fieldbuses. The application that best fits your needs can be chosen from the following:

    • Basic application
    • Standard application
    • Local/remote application
    • Multi-step speed control application
    • PID control application
    • Multi-purpose control application
    • Pump and fan control with autochange
    • Customized applications
    The LV7000 family may be used for the replacement of MV500, MV1000 and MV3000 drives that had been transitioned to obsolete.

    LV7000-1

    The compact size and flexible installation options make the LV7000-1 suitable for installations where space is at a premium. The small MF2 and MF3 frames can be mounted using a DIN rail either at the back or at the side of the drive; the larger MF4-MF6 frames are wall mounted.

    The LV7000-1 includes an easy-to-use and flexible multi-control application. The need for parameter adjustments is kept to a minimum, thanks to well-defined default settings. All I/Os can be programmed. The versatile features include full motor protection, flying start function, sleep function and a PID controller, with the possibility to control 3+1 pumps (PFC). The bookshelf design, the enclosure options and EMC classes offer an optimal solution for all operating environments.

    Features:
