9 CONNECTOR DETAILS: Top Side Connectors: Fault Feedback Terminals: Terminals marked with TFB TFBnn and COM. COM: The reference voltage level with respect to this terminal the other digital voltages of +12Vdc are given to TFBnn. TFBnn: The number nn is normally connected to corresponding step number nn thyristor switching fault feedback. These are +12Vdc signals given by thyristor switches whenever these trip due to any fault that is observed in the specific step. Auxiliary Input: Terminals marked with AI & COM. The various functions like: Output Disable / Enable. Mains / Generator Mode change-over. Faults reset. The function out of these is selected through user settable parameter. The Logic1 is with +8V to +14Vdc at the input terminal AI with respect to COM and Logic0 is with 0 to +0.5Vdc. Auxiliary Output: Terminals marked with AO & AO. These are Normally Open auxiliary contacts. Maximum contact rating is 0.5Amp/240Vac or 100mA/48Vdc. This is used for getting the outputs control of: Output tripped fault. Indicative + tripped fault. (system fault) Out of Step. (Inadequate compensation) Reset modem (In case of communication failure with GSM modem) The function out of these is selected through user settable parameter. For inductive switching loads like contactor/ relay coils, it is recommended to use the RC snubber circuits for AC and free wheeling diode for DC. The values can be as per coil inductance section. Typically it is R=330 /2Watt, C=0.1 F/1000V for 240Vac system

10 Bottom Side Connectors: Mains CT Feedback Terminals: Terminals marked with LC + & -. These are connected to secondary of the Mains current feedback CT secondary. The rated secondary can be either 5Amp. or 1Amp. ac. (Selectable by user defined parameter). Capacitor CT Feedback Terminals: Terminals marked with CC. These are connected to secondary of overall capacitor current sensing CT. Rated secondary current can be either 5Amp or 1Amp ac. (User defined parameter). On/Off Command Output Terminals: Terminals marked with OP OPnn and GND. GND: This is the Ground reference terminal. With respect to this terminal, the output commands OPnn reference voltages are given. OPnn: These are the Bank On / Off command terminals. When a specific capacitor bank is to be turned On, it generates output Voltage as +11V to +12Vdc. This is through the solid state switch which has maximum driving capacity of 20mA. Each output is protected for short circuit. Auxiliary Supply / Voltage Feedback Terminals: Terminals are marked with L1 / P and L2 / N. These are used for giving the mains voltage input to the relay. This voltage would be used for Powering up the relay as well as for taking the voltage feedback. 415Vac and 110Vac are considered as line voltages. (across lines of the two phases). 240Vac and 63.5Vac are considered as phase voltages. (across line and Neutral. CONNECTOR DETAILS: - 8 -

14 Various Installation Schemes. Conventional LT side PF improvement system Schematic: LOADLOAD Load CT. Cap. CT. HT side LT side Scheme-1. As per this scheme, the load sensing CT is put between the Source and the PF correction Capacitor banks. This is as per the diagram shown above. The voltage feedback is taken from the LT bus system itself. This type of scheme is used when user is interested in maintaining the healthy Power Factor on the secondary side of the transformer. This scheme is preferred with LT consumers of electricity, where the metering is carried out on LT side. Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF-02. i.e. the capacitor current feedback CT senses the overall current of the capacitor banks in the circuit

15 LT Power Factor compensation with HT side feedback: LOADLOAD Cap. CT. CT / PT HT sideLT side Scheme-2. As per this scheme, the load sensing CT as well as voltage feedback PT is put at the input of the transformer on HT side. This scheme is preferred with LT consumers of electricity, where the metering is carried out on HT side. Using this scheme gives even the compensation against magnetising current of the transformer. Thus, for HT metering, able to give more accurate results. Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF-02. i.e. the capacitor current feedback CT senses the overall current of the capacitor banks in the circuit. This feedback is common in all the schemes. The relay has provision to program the HT PT ratio as well as defining the capacitor working voltage

16 Usage of summation CT for usage with Mains / Generator changeover system. LOADLOAD Mains CT. Cap. CT. HT sideLT side Generator. Scheme-3. In case of system with duel sources of supply, I.e. Supply Grid and Generator. Under such case, the system can be shifted between the two sources. For every source there may be different requirements of max. loading on sources as well as requirements for different target PF settings. With such schemes, a summation CT is used. The changeover between the two sources is informed to TRPF-02 through its Aux. Input port. TRPF-02 is capable of handling such duel settings. Using this scheme gives user an advantage of using a single PF improvement system with either of the source in operation. Capacitor current feedback is taken from all the capacitor banks that are controlled by the Auto PF controller: TRPF

17 V, I and I-cap feedback Control Wiring: The control wiring for Measurement section: This is further divided into two types. 1.Quadrature Mode. For 415Vac and 110Vac. 2.In phase Mode. For 240Vac and 63.5Vac. Quadrature Mode: Typical Schematic. LOADLOAD TRPF L2 L1 CC LC N P OP1OPnn TFB1--TFBnn L1 L2 L3 P1 P2 S1 S2 Thyristorised Switching. P1 P2 S1 S2 MAINS SOURCE N

18 In Phase Mode: Typical Schematic. Either of the above specified modes can be selected by the user based on the system requirement. Whats is looked into is that with Quadrature Mode is Voltage across L1 & L2 terminals is the line voltage value as compared to In Phase mode has Phase P to Neutral N voltage value. Therefore the relay voltage selection should be done according to the mode of operation selected. LOADLOAD TRPF P N CC LC L1 L2 OP1OPnn TFB1--TFBnn L1 L2 L3 P1 P2 S1 S2 Thyristorised Switching. P1 P2 S1 S2 MAINS SOURCE N

19 Typical Scheme of TRPF-02 with TAS make Thyristor switches

20 CT Selection: For Mains Current Feedback: Normally the Primary current rating of the CT is equal to the maximum capacity of the mains source current. But sometimes, even with source having more capacity, the Load requirements are comparatively small. Under such case its recommended to use the CT rating equal to the maximum known Load current. This will give better results and also gives better accuracy of measurement. The secondary of the CT can either be 5Amp ac or 1Amp ac. The VA rating of the CT should be minimum 3VA, even though the actual VA burden offered by TRPF-02 is less than 0.5VA. This is to take care of longer lead lengths and contact drops. For Capacitor Current Feedback: Here the primary current rating of the CT should be equal to the maximum current that can flow through the PF correction system. The secondary of the CT can either be 5Amp ac or 1Amp ac. The VA rating of the CT should be minimum 1VA, even though the actual VA burden offered by TRPF-02 is less than 0.5VA. General about CT connection: The CT secondary should be brought to TRPF-02 terminals through a terminal block. This block should have arrangement to short the CTs. This is to take care of CTs being left open circuited and thus getting damaged, when TRPF-02 terminals are removed

All the three conditions specified in the diagram, the four quadrant operation is achieved if Auto kW polarity is not activated. If this feature is activated, the TRPF-02 works with only kW +ve two quadrants. Thus, with 4 quadrant operations requirements, Auto kW polarity should be kept off. Typical example of 4 quadrant operation is with Co-Generation Plants and Wind-Power Generation. But with most conventional consumer applications, only +ve KW is seen, where the Auto kW polarity feature can be kept ON. It can be seen that there are two PF set points to be set in TRPF-02. The Upper and the Lower. TRPF-02 ensures that PF UPPER is never exceeded. Additionally, No change band to minimum KVAR band size equal to smallest bank KVAR X 1.5 ensures no hunting during the low KW loading

23 Front LCD Display Power Up Display Screen. (Only for first 1 sec.) The contrast of the LCD can be adjusted by using the keys. The left key will make the contrast darker and right key will make it lighter. The front LCD Display under default condition displays the various parameter readings. There are number of screens that shows the various parameters that are measured or derived. These various screens can be displayed by pressing the Scroll keys. Viz. UP key - DOWN key – Alternately, scrolling of all the screen with user defined interval can also be set by Parameter settings. TAS Power Tek TRPF-02-Ver*

24 Then the unit should display: COSφ=1. ØØØ IND A This is the factory set default screen. The COS= part is to indicate that the value following that is Power Factor. This indicates the PF that is sensed by the unit near the load sensing CT position. i.e. the transformer/ supply grid side. Further three digits are to indicate if PF sensed is Inductive or Capacitive. Inductive is shown by IND and Capacitive is shown by CAP. TRPF-02 is designed to work with two set points. One group of set points are for Transformer /Supply Grid and other group of set points are for Generator operation. Transformer / Supply Grid operation is indicated by and Generator operation is indicated by. The last digit on the upper line of display shows the operation mode. TRPF-02 is designed to work in two modes. Viz. Auto mode and Manual mode. Auto mode is indicated by A and Manual mode is indicated by M. The bottom line of the LCD display shows the capacitor bank status. The numbers 1 to 16 below the LCD display are for specific outputs. (capacitor bank number that is controlled by TRPF-02). The LCD display above this number gives the status of that specific output/Capacitor bank. Total blank indicates that that output is not used for control. A small dash indicates that Bank is connected but is in OFF state. A symbol indicates that bank is connected and it is in ON state. A symbol indicates that bank is declared as fixed bank and is ON. A symbol indicates that bank is declared faulty and is OFF. Display Page:

25 For an example, If the screen seen is as below means: Power Factor at Load sensing CT is Inductive. System is compensating Transformer/Supply grid. Unit is operating in Auto mode. Total number of banks that are operational are seven. Bank no.1 is declared as fixed and is in ON condition. Bank no.2, 3 and 7 are in ON condition. Bank no.4 & 6 are in OFF condition. Bank no.5 is declared as faulty. The detailed meaning of System operation, mode, fixed bank, bank operational, discharging etc would be explained in more detail in the later part of manual.

32 Select 2.Auto Operation Auto and Manual Operation Modes: Before Understanding the Parameter Editing, lets understand the two modes of operation. Auto and Manual Auto Operation: On this screen pressing ENT key will put the unit in Auto Operation. This mode will continue till alternate operation mode is selected or unit is put in Power down condition. This is the mode in which the unmanned operation of automatically putting the capacitors in and out of circuit is performed. This mode should be normally selected with TRPF-02, once the system is totally commissioned. Here the kVAr compensation values are calculated by TRPF-02 and the closest equivalent capacitor combination is inserted in the system so that the PF is maintained within the desired level. This is as per the kW v/s kVAr graphs shown earlier in PF compensation part. On the default display, the status of capacitor banks is seen as performed by TRPF-02. Any TFB (Thyristor switch fault Feed Back) commands from thyristor switches will be considered as that specific capacitor bank is faulty and TRPF-02 will not use this bank for compensation. It will try to use the other capacitor banks to select the best possible combination of the banks to achieve target kVAr. (i.e. target PF). TRPF-02 assumes that the thyristor switches used are Zero spike current switch On thyristor switches (Like TAS ZCTC or ZCCP). Thus the control command to multiple banks switch ON/OFF can be simultaneous in Auto mode

33 Select 3.Manual Opern Manual Operation: Pressing ENT button on this screen will put TRPF-02 in Manual mode. This mode would continue to run till it is purposefully changed or Power down. This mode is normally used to perform the Operation like: Resetting of faulty banks to healthy status. Checking the Capacitor banks by turning them ON/OFF. Declaring specific bank/s faulty. Masking of the banks so that once auto mode is selected, these faulty declared banks would not be used. For Declaring banks faulty or Resetting faulty banks: In manual mode default screen press ENT. The cursor above bank 1 will start blinking. Use keys to select the specific bank. Then use key to declare the bank faulty. To reset the faulty bank, bring the blinking cursor to that bank and use key to declare the bank as healthy. Once the specific banks are declared faulty or reset from faulty to a healthy status, press ENT key so that cursor stops blinking. For saving the status on permanent basis (so that even after Power down, the status is unchanged), press SAVE key. After this save command, the unit will jump back to default mode. (Default as auto or manual is set in edit parameters). For Testing banks with manual On/ Off commands: Press ENT, the cursor will start blinking. Use keys to select the specific bank/s that are healthy and use key to turn On and use key to turn Off the capacitor banks. To come out of Manual On/Off edit mode, press ENT key so that cursor stops blinking

These values are dependent on the hardware provided with the unit and thus these parameters are non-settable. As explained earlier, 63.5 and 240 voltage modules work in In-Phase configuration. And 110 and 415 voltage modules work in Quadrature configuration. This parameter though non-editable is given so as to inform the user of configuration. For rated system voltages other than the ones provided in above 4 options, external PT can be put. The ratio of the PT as secondary: primary is to be put here. With no external PT it should be ; With 11kV system with 110V secondary PT, this ratio is This parameter tells the TRPF-02 about the primary current rating of the Grid/Transformer side connected CT. This parameter is used by TRPF-02 only if the unit is used with the Scheme-3 as explained earlier in the installation guidelines. The parameter tells TRPF-02 about the primary current rating of Generator side CT. This parameter tells the TRPF-02 about the secondary current rating of the CTs used by Grid/Transformer (Mains) as well as Generator. There are 2 options available. 0: 1Ampare. & 1: 5Ampare.

40 Edit Parameters System Measurement Mode In Phase (L-N) Measurement Mode Quadrature (L-L) Auto KW Polr Chk Enable :1 Auto KW Polr Chk Disable :0 This parameter too is not user settable. It is given here for indication that wiring should be connected in In Phase or Quadrature. This is already explained in the earlier topic. This is the parameter that is to be used for convenience of commissioning. In case the CT connected or Voltage phases connected are with reverse polarity, TRPF-02 can check the kW sign. If this sign is –ve, and if this parameter is Enable, it internally reverses the polarity of CT. But in some cases, where the system is to be used with 4 quadrant operation, this is not desirable. Under such case this parameter should be set to Disable. The typical example of this is with wind-mill operation using Induction Generator.

42 Edit Parameters Communication Initialize RTC No :0 Initialize RTC Yes :1 Time 17:23:05 Only with R and RD version. Date 27:08:04 The time of the RTC (real time clock) inside the TRPF-02 can be set by adjusting the correct time. Time is in HH:MM:SS format. Similarly the date of RTC cab be adjusted. Date is in dd:mm:yy format. Normally, user will find 0: No in this para- meter. Once the above specified time and date are adjusted, this parameter can be set to 1:Yes. Pressing the SAVE button will initialize the RTC to the new time and date values. In case of battery used in TRPF-02 goes faulty and is not replace in time, or in off state, this battery is removed, the Non Volatile RAM values can become invalid. Under such case NVRAM fault can come up. Thus to clear the NVRAM, and re-write this with refreshed parameters, 1-Yes selection is done and then SAVE is pressed to clear this NVRAM fault.

This parameter defines the level of over-voltage at which this fault would be detected. Over Voltage Resume is the level of over-voltage for fault to be reset and normal operation of the TRPF-02 can resume. As per the sequence of Over-Voltage, the various faults have same options. The various faults in this fault are. Under Voltage Fault: For under-Voltage conditions. Over Load Fault: For Over-loading conditions on supply system. Under Load Fault: It is kW value of loading, below which this fault can activate. Over/Under CAP-I Fault: Capacitor Over/Under current for the given kVAr connected. Here there is one more option of allowing auto-restart. Used in case the option is used for disabling the capacitor banks and need to restart these automatically. The time of auto-restart is programmable too. Cap. Current THD Fault: Against Capacitor current THD exceeding. Over/Under Frequency Fault: Against frequency changing problems

In case of excessive limit of the temperature, the unit can be used to disable all the outputs commands to the banks. The limit of the temperature too are adjustable. U.Limit is the tripping limit and L.Limit is the resume limit setting. In case TRPF-02 after switching on all the possible capacitor banks finds that for next two compensation cycles, PF is lower than the PF lower limit, then this fault is indicated if enable option is selected. But this fault does not switch off capacitor banks

45 Before explaining further Edit Parameters, we need To know the compensation method/cycle in Auto mode. Timing Diagram: Time. Step Response Correction Time. Total Compensation Cycle Time Start of Compensation Cycle. Start of next Compensation Cycle. Instants at which the Capacitors Physically Inserted/removed in/out of the system. End of Compensation Cycle. TRPF-02 command for ON/OFF

46 Edit Parameters Step Correction Time Cycles : 005 Correction Mode Auto :0 Correction Mode Manual :1 CompensationKVAR Instant. :0 CompensationKVAR Mean :1 Step Response Cycles : 001 TRPF-02 can be used Auto or Manual mode. Usually it is used with Auto mode. But in case to be used in manual mode as normal default, the setting 1 here will do the same. At power up too under such case unit will start in Manual mode. In auto mode, the KVAR to be inserted in the system can be calculated by two methods. 0:(Instant.): On instantaneous value at the moment of compensation. 1:(Mean): On basis of the mean KVAR over a period of one compensation cycle. The Previous page diagram shows the timing sequence. Correction time is the time during which there is total inactivity (except measurement) as far as capacitor switching is concerned. This unit is for high speed thyristorised switching. Thus response is fast and thus this is settable in terms of number of mains cycles. Step Response is given in mains cycles. This is the time lag between the TRPF-02 command and the Capacitor switching mechanism of physically putting capacitors in the circuit. This is programmed depending on Thyristor switches configuration and charged voltages across the capacitors. It also depends on discharge devices as well as detuned reactors % if used. This is to be set depending on these said parameters

Ext-Fixed Bank KVAr : 025 Correction Type Binary : 0 Correction Type E-Series : 3 Correction Type Un-Equal : 1 Correction Type C-Series : 2 Bin-Bank KVAR : 020 Total number of Banks (either declared as fixed or variable) that can be switched ON/OFF by TRPF-02. By using ENT, UP and DOWN keys, the fixed banks can be defined for corresponding to the specific output of TRPF-02. Fixed banks are the ones that are even kept ON at min. loading. In case APFC system uses some capacitor bank that is fixed but not controlled thro TRPF-02, it should be specified here. The correction type is the method used by APFC system to configure its capacitor banks. 0: Binary: Here if banks are configured with a ratio of 1, 2, 4, 8, : Un-Equal: In case user uses the banks that does not have a specific integral pattern, Un-Equal banks option to be selected. 2:C-Series: Some standard configurations are readily programmed in TRPF-02. In case these are to be used, this option can be selected. 3:E-Series: User defined definite configuration series can be selected if APFC configuration is suited for the same. This parameter is used in case correction type used is Binary. The kVAr value defined here is the value corresponding to minimum bank size in a binary configuration. I.e. in above specified Binary logic of 1, 2, 4, ---, it corresponds to

Here every bank connected can be defined in terms of KVAr. TRPF-02 in Auto mode has been built with intelligence that it will select the correct combination of the Capacitor banks that matches nearest to the KVAr requirements, so that PF is maintained within the specified limits

50 Recommendations for Thyristorised Auto-PF control panel. 1.Provide the Discharge resistors across the capacitors. The Discharge resistor value is function of the parameters: Response Time Detuned Reactors % drop value. Thyristor configuration (in line or within delta) Capacitor kVAr value. By taking into account these parameters selection is to be done for appropriate values of these resistors and their wattage. 2.Keep the control command and other control wires (+12V) away from any power wiring. It is recommended to route these control wires in separate channels. 3.Earthing in such electronic panels should be of two types. a) Power Earthing. b) Electronic Earthing. The earth-pits used for such earthing should also be separate. 4.Every thyristor switch should have some minimum clearance recommended by manufacturer from all the sides or any other electrical item. An appropriate cooling arrangement is recommended. 5.If voltage THD is greater than 3.5%, then improve the same by usage of tuned filters first. Otherwise thyristor switches can mal-function

51 6.The panel in which these equipments are mounted should protect them from dust and conductive suspended particles. 7.It is recommended to put the Fuses or MCBs/ MCCBs in line with every thyristor switch. 8.It is recommended to put a fixed capacitor bank (without suppression chokes but with fuses ) of 10% rating of the total switched kVAr of the system. This helps in terms of absorbing the line transients and provides additional protection to thyristor switches. This also provides the protection to thyristor switches against dV/dt while mains turn ON. Please note that this is recommended for capacitor panel without detuned reactors used. 9.Avoid touching the electronics of the TRPF-02 or thyristor switches even when they are not energized. 10.Do not use contactor switching capacitor panel or fixed capacitor switching on the same line as where thyristorised capacitor switched panel is installed. 11.Provide the proper cooling arrangement to the panel so that panel internal temperature does not exceed 50°C. 12.Regular cleaning with vacuum cleaner helps giving the everlasting performance

52 Commissioning Instructions : before panel is powered up for the first time. For Thyristor switched Capacitor system.: 1. Panel Wiring Check Ensure that all connections in the panel is tightened properly and there are no loose connections. Also ensure that the wiring is done as per the wiring diagram. 2. Power Wiring Check Ensure that the power cables are connected properly from the Panel I/C to the feeder I/C or the transformer bushings. The connection has to be after the Load Feed back CT looking from the Transformer side. As per the schemes given in earlier part of this manual. Ensure that the Bus Bars and/or Lugs are clean and free of Dust, Corrosion or Oxidation on the contact sides so that good electrical connection is maintained. The contact area should be flat so as to get maximum contact area. If required Clean the Bus Bars and/ or Lugs by rubbing it with Polish Paper to remove the oxidation layer

53 Not performing this, can result in to a weaker source point for Capacitor charging during Step on and this can generate undesirable Noise which can hamper the performance of equipments installed in the capacitor panel. 3. Load Feed Back CT connection. Ensure that the load feed back CT connections are done properly and the CT is inserted in proper phase as per the scheme selected and with proper polarity. Also ensure that the CT is shorted using the shorting facility provided in the panel. CT connections to be done carefully so as to ensure that the wire does not get open and there is no loose connection. Loose connections or open CT secondary can result in to very high voltages getting developed in the circuit which can damage the CT and also produce high levels of noise in the system. 4. Neutral & Earth connections.(applicable for panel with 3phase 4 wire system) Ensure that the neutral and earth connections are done properly. The Panel should not be powered on till it is confirmed that the neutral & earth connections are proper

54 To ensure proper neutral and earth connections follow the instructions below: Remove the power connection to the Controller. Remove all control Fuses in the panel. Switch off all MCBs /remove fuses for capacitors in the panel. Switch on the incoming MCCB/SFU/ACB in the panel. Measure the three phase voltages w.r.t. Neutral, The three phase voltages should be in the range of +10% of the rated Line-Neutral value. Measure the voltage at the earth terminal w.r.t. Neutral, This voltage should be less than 5V ac. Measure the three phase voltages w.r.t. Earth, The three phase voltages should be in the range of +10% of the rated Line-Neutral value. In case any of the above measured voltages are out of the specified range, switch OFF the MCCB, check and rectify the wiring and then repeat the procedure. The controller and the control sections should not be powered up till the Neutral and Earth connections are proper to avoid permanent damage to the controller, contactor coils, fans and other equipments in the panel. The Power connections are to be done, at the Source side, in a way that the wires are not accidentally disconnected. If required, use proper labels on the wires to identify them

55 Commissioning Instructions : After the panel is powered up. 1.Remove the fuses in series with every capacitor bank. Connect the supply to the controller. Keep the load feedback and capacitor current feedback in shorted condition. 2.Turn On the supply to the panel and set Date/time, zero offset and various other parameters as per the panel configuration. Its important to understand the meaning of every parameter from the instructions given before and then put the appropriate values in them. Wrong values entered can give the wrong performance of the panel. 3.Once the parameterisation is complete, put the TRPF-02 in Manual mode to check every bank command is transmitted to the switch. This can be observed by checking that On command is reaching the specific thyristor switch. Use dc voltage measuring meter for this. 4.Once all the switches are seen to be getting the correct commands, switch off the supply to the panel and replace all the fuses (or turn on MCBs if they are provided instead of fuses). Turn on the panel

56 5. Put TRPF-02 back in Manual mode and turn ON/Off the individual steps. Use tong tester (ac current measurement) to check that current in all the three phase of the corresponding bank are OK. If individual phase compensation is used, then check with only corresponding phase. In case any thyristor switch is giving fault feedback, check the cause and rectify the same. 6. Keep all the banks in off mode. Remove the short of Load feedback CT. In case KW value is seen as –ve, CT is with wrong polarity. Either select Auto KW Polarity chk in Enable mode or change CT polarity. 7. Remove the capacitor feedback CT short. Put controller front display screen in Capacitor current measurement display. Now turn ON the capacitor banks one by one and observe that capacitor current increases as per the rating of the steps. Turn ON all the banks to see that almost full rated current flows through the capacitors. 8. Switch OFF all the banks manually and put the TRPF-02 in Automatic mode. Observe the panel performance for a period of about 2hrs after the commissioning

57 Fault TypeProbable ReasonAction to Take Unit Does not turn ON. LCD is blank with no Backlit. Input supply not coming. Input side fuses blown Check the input supply to restore Check fuses in the unit for OK. Unit not turning ON any capacitor banks, immediately after Power on. This is perfectly OK if unit is powered up, there is a delay of correction time that is provided in the unit only after which units can turn on outputs. As this is normal action, need not take any action. Unit will start performing normally after the stipulated time delay. With whatever capacitor banks ON, TRPF-02 does not indicate the PF as improved. Unit scheme selection may be wrong. Check if In-Phase or Quadrature mode selection is matching that with the wiring. Check that Load CT put is in correct phase and on mains source side. Correct the wiring as per the scheme requirements and the CT positioning. Fault Finding Guidelines :

58 Fault TypeProbable ReasonAction to Take Time and Date gets disturbed. Back-up battery may not be in healthy state. Replace batteries if required. NVRAM check-sum error indicated. NV-RAM contents have got disturbed. Try clearing NVRAM in Communication menu of the Edit Parameters. Thyristor switches controlled by this unit is/are not turning ON/OFF even if front LCD indication shows correct. Control wiring to thyristor switch is open circuit +12V supply used for controlling may be faulty. Output stages in TRPF-02 module faulty Check the continuity for any open ckt. Replace the Power supply used.(+12V) Replace the TRPF-02 module with new one. Lots of faults that are seen as faults are due to wrong parameter settings. It is recommended to go through the details on Parameter setting explanation part of this manual and set them correctly

65 Serial Communication Protocols – TAS/01 Communication Protocol TAS/01, is specifically designed for the point-to-point OR point-to-multipoint communication systems. These protocols will be normally used by the smaller equipments and is very simple to handle. Protocols are useful in only single Master configurations. The Slave units can be one or more. Maximum data information that can be sent in one telegram is restricted to 10 bytes of Hexadecimal numbers. (D1 to D10). Structure: ANNEXURE – 2. Byte No String Structure STXID5ID4ID3ID2ID1ID0PAD 3 AD 2 AD 1 AD 0 DLDL1 M DL1 L DL2 M DL2 L DL 10 M DL 10 L CS ETX Byte No STX – Start of Text – character: in ASCII format. Value is 02 HEX. ETX – End of Text – character: in ASCII format. Value is 03 HEX. ID(no.)– Identification byte. (no.)defines the decimal place of byte. P – Parameter. AD(no.) – Address byte. (no.) defines the decimal place of byte. DL – Data length in terms of hex byte specifying (no.) in D – data. D(no.) M – Data byte MSB nibble equivalent of D(no.). D(no.) L – Data byte LSB nibble equivalent of D(no.). CS – Check Serial-communication Redundancy check byte. NOTE: All the bytes used are in ASCII format and other than STX, ETX, P and CS, all the characters are within the range of 0 to 9 and A to F only

66 Detailed Description: (Nos indicated with subscription ASC is Decimal number whose ASCII character will be in that byte. Nos indicated with subscription DEC, are the Decimal numbers and Nos. indicated with subscription HEX, are the Hexadecimal numbers.) ID(no.) Is a Six byte long Decimal number. This decimal number is first to be converted to its equivalent BCD (Binary Coded Decimal). Then Units place is given no. D0, Tens place is given no. D1 and so on. Maximum length of ID code is six digits. I.e. from D0 to D5. It should be noted that if ID used is only 4 digits long then the higher up digits should be inserted with ASCII character 0 = 30 HEX. So in that case D4 and D5 = ASCII char 0 = 30 HEX = 48 ASC. The range of all the characters for ID is ASCII char 0= 30 HEX = 48 ASC. To ASCII char 9= 39 HEX = 57 ASC. Here the range of ASCII char A to F is not permissible. This is because ID is only an integer and thus cannot hold the Hexadecimal numbers. AD(no.) Is a 16 DEC bits long, hexadecimal number. This hexadecimal number points to the memory location in the Slave units. This address which is 2 bytes in length in Hex. format is split into four nibbles. Then every nibble character is converted to its ASCII equivalent. e.g. Say the address location in Slave unit that is required to be sent over this serial protocol is : 3A0D HEX, which of-course is two byte or sixteen bit long number. This number is separated out into four nibbles as 03 HEX, 0A HEX, 00 HEX and 0D HEX. Then they are converted to their ASCII equivalent numbers

67 So that final values in the frame that is sent has; AD3 = ASCII char 3 = 33 HEX = 51 ASC. AD2 = ASCII char A = 41 HEX = 65 ASC. AD1 = ASCII char 0 = 30 HEX = 48 ASC. AD0 = ASCII char D = 44 HEX = 68 ASC. P – parameter. This byte can take any ASCII char from A to Z. Probably, the most important byte of the string. This is used for defining the type of information that is required to be given to the units under communication. e.g. This byte can be: ASCII char S = 53 HEX = 83 ASC. Can mean for the units under communication as Status Enquiry. Or ASCII char C = 43 HEX = 67 ASC. Can mean for the units under communication as Command information. But the meaning of these ASCII characters will depend on every different type of Slave unit. Say if the Slave unit is Energy meter that uses Tas/01 protocols, the meanings of characters in P can be different than that if the other Slave unit is Power factor controller that uses the same Tas/01 protocols. DL This byte gives the information about the length of the data bytes that are being sent on the string. As the maximum number of data information that can be sent by this protocol per string is 0A HEX = 10 DEC. The value that is taken by this byte in a string can be ASCII equivalent of Hex number from 00 HEX to OA HEX. i.e. it can be ASCII char 0 = 30 HEX = 48 DEC, or ASCII char 1, or ASCII char 2 and so on up-to ASCII char 9 and then ASCII char A, depending on the length of the data information given in D1 to D

68 e.g. If ten bytes of data information is required to be sent then DL = ASCII char A = 41 HEX = 65 DEC. And If zero bytes of data information is to be sent then DL = ASCII char 0 = 30 HEX = 48 DEC. D(no.) These are the data information bytes. This part of the string is variable in length and thus earlier defined DL byte gives the information on the same. The maximum information that can be sent per string can be maximum ten bytes. Every byte of data that is to be sent is divided into two nibbles. Then every nibble is converted into its ASCII equivalent. e.g. Say information on Data byte D3 is to be sent is 7E HEX. Then it is divided into two bytes with Hex value as 07 HEX and 0E HEX. Then these bytes are converted to its ASCII equivalent characters. They are stored as: D3 M = ASCII char 7 = 37 HEX = 55 ASC. D3 L = ASCII char E = 45 HEX = 69 ASC. Example: Overall relation between DL & D(no.) M/L.: The data that is required to be sent is three bytes long, Say D1 = FE HEX = 254 DEC. D2 = 5C HEX = 094 DEC. D3 = 98 HEX = 152 DEC. Then the length of the data is 03 HEX bytes long. So, here DL = ASCII char 3 = 33 HEX = 51 ASC. D1 M = ASCII char F = 46 HEX = 70 ASC. D1 L = ASCII char E = 45 HEX = 69 ASC. D2 M = ASCII char 5 = 35 HEX = 53 ASC. D2 L = ASCII char C = 43 HEX = 67 ASC. D3 M = ASCII char 9 = 39 HEX = 57 ASC. D3 L = ASCII char 8 = 38 HEX = 56 ASC

69 STX Start of Text – ASCII char = 02 ASC. This is always fixed for TAS/01 protocols and cannot be changed. ETX End of Text – ASCII char = 03 ASC. This too is fixed for TAS/01 protocols and cannot be changed. CS Communication Redundancy Check (CRC) byte. This byte is for ensuring the reliability of communication and is highly recommended to be used by Master and Slave. The calculation / verification of the byte is being done with the following formulas. CS = XOR ing the bytes in the final ASCII format string. = XOR [ID5, ID4, ID….---,P, AD1, AD0, DL, D(no.) L/M ]. (STX and ETX is never considered for CRC calculation). *** END ***
