The ACS 5000 is a medium voltage, variable speed frequency converter for low and high power induction and synchronous motors. The converter is equipped with one or two inverters depending on the required output power.
The ACS 5000 is based on a 5-level (9-level phase to phase) Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) topology without series or parallel connections of power semiconductors. Therefore it is the least complex, most robust and most efficient medium voltage frequency converter that is available on today's market. The resulting quality of output voltage and current allows the use of standard motors. Even the retrofit of existing direct-on-line (DOL) motors is possible.
The ACS 5000, like other frequency converters of the ABB medium voltage drive family, uses an advanced and proven power semiconductor switching device known as IGCT. The IGCT is a highly reliable semicon- ductor based on well-proven thyristor technology. Low parts count, lowest losses and high reliability, combined with comfortable design margins result in best possible reliability and availability. Thanks to the fuseless converter design, the ACS 5000 does not require any power fuses which are known to be unreliable, costly and subject to aging.
ABB's award-winning control platform Direct Torque Control DTC provides the best torque and speed performance ever achieved in medium voltage frequency converters. Control of the frequency converter is immediate and smooth under all conditions.
