Study Of Large VSI Drive System For The Oil And Gas Industry.
MetadataShow full item record
Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions are recognized as important issues in today’s world. In addition, oil and gas companies are looking for ways to increase their capacity and maximize system uptime in order to meet the global energy demand. To realize these goals, oil and gas facilities are looking for electrical solutions as prime movers on their compressor trains. These solution make use of large scale variable speed drive (VSD) systems such as the voltage source inverter (VSI) with high power alternating current (AC) motor drive systems. The VSI is more widely used to match the motor speed and torque to the optimum load requirement, thereby saving significant electrical cost. Since large electrical drive systems are a relatively new technology with limited field data, the full load test of 30 MVA five-level VSI system was carried out on a test stand to measure critical data necessary to evaluate system performances.
