Small Thyristor Frequency Converters for Induction Heating

Small Thyristor Frequency Converters for Induction Heating

Series-TMK-R Frequency converters are designed for supplying power to smaller induction heaters, melting furnaces and other technological devices with an output of up 60 kW and a working frequency of up to 10 kHz.

Principle

Series TMK-R converters consist of a main switch (1), main circuit-breaker (2), anti-jamming module (3), three-phase rectifier (4), intercircuit filter (5), voltage converter with reserve diodes (6), and capacitors (7), making an oscillating circuit together with a medium-frequency transformer (8), and finally an inductor (9) designed such, that an oscillating circuit is created.

Operational tasks and fault monitoring are handled by a PLC coupled with a controller (10). The output requirement is set via the LCD display interface. System failures are also detailed on the display.

Electronic and power circuit components are cooled by an open-loop water system.

Conclusion of EMC Test Protocol

Model TMK-R Frequency converters comply with resistance test standards set by ČSN EN 50082-2, ČSN EN 61000-4-2, ČSN EN 61000-4-4, ČSN EN 61000-4-6 and ČSN EN 61000-4-11.

Frequency Range [kHz] 5 - 10
Output voltage [V] max. 500
Supply voltage 3N~50Hz, 230/400V/TN-S
Energy input [kVA] 72
Cooling water:
- Consumption1) [m3/hr]
- Input pressure [MPa]
- Input temperature [°C]

1,7
max. 0,4
max. 32
Weight [kg] 325
Ratio of MF transformer 2) 1:1 až 1:9

Notes:

  1. The listed water requirements include the inductor loop.
  2. The unit is provided with one transformer ratio.  A suitable supply is set according to the required load.  Optimal settings are recommended to be carried out by the connected equipment's manufacturer. The mid-frequency transformer can be built into the converter, or it can be located externally.

Advantages of TMK-R

  • high efficiency
  • range of output setting 2% - 100% of nominal value
  • high value of inlet power factor - compensation in the mains is not necessary
  • matching transformer on converter input is not necessary - lower installation costs
  • load matching by parallel or serial oscillating circuit, or a particular inductor.

Optional accessories:

  1. Cooling unit CH 30 (water-to-air heat exchanger).
  2. Interconnection cables between transformer load and converter input if the transformer is placed externally.
