Global Success for Solcon Industries’ Medium Voltage DriveStart

Del

Two years ago, Solcon Industries released the DriveStart to deliver on a promise – create a medium voltage motor control that costs less and requires a smaller footprint than a variable frequency drive (VFD). “One of our customers required a simple, yet complicated solution - bring a motor up to speed,” said Gil Briman, CEO. “They were dealing with an insufficient power grid and paying high charges during peak times. The DriveStart not only solved their issues but was embraced by our customers across the global industrial landscape.”

For over 40 years, Solcon Industries has delivered innovative solutions. The DriveStart, an IGBT-based medium voltage soft starter, is available up to 6.6kV at 750A, and is the perfect addition to Solcon’s motor control solutions. “Solcon has remained a global leader in industrial motor controls because we listen,” says Jonathan Barrie, Senior Director of Product Management and Global Marketing. “Our products have earned a solid reputation due to their long, successful life out in the field. The DriveStart follows our corporate tradition.”

How does Solcon help customers with insufficient power grids? On a turbo vacuum blower at a paper mill in Indonesia, a DriveStart was commissioned to overcome issues with a weak power supply, high inertia start and other conditions. The DriveStart limited the starting current to lower than nominal as it accurately controlled the speed in order to prevent over speed. “The DriveStart’s integrated Solcon Data Logger and control program accurately adjusted the acceleration of the motor load to optimize the power usage,” says Mr. Barrie.

The Drivestart solved issues for other customers. “We created a great motor control and now it’s commissioned in other fields including mining, gas production, sludge pumps and others,” says Mr. Briman. “It started as a simple solution to help fill one customer’s request that turned into a global success.”

Westinghouse Receives Regulatory Approval for Analysis Methodologies20.10.2017 12:15Pressemelding

Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for two new important analysis methodologies that will be used to upgrade Westinghouse- and Combustion Engineering-based nuclear steam supply system (NSSS) safety analyses. The approvals granted are for the new FULL SPECTRUMTM Loss of Coolant Accident (FSLOCATM) methodology and the Performance Analysis and Design Model software code update, PAD5. FSLOCA is capable of improved modeling of the transient response in a pressurized water reactor to the full spectrum of LOCA break sizes that could occur, and PAD5 is the next generation of the Westinghouse fuel rod design performance code. “These codes were developed to work in concert with each other to maximize analytical margin for nuclear utilities,” said Michele DeWitt, senior vice preside
