Transistor Frequency Converters for Induction Heating Output Frequency 6 - 50 kHz

Transistor Frequency Converters for Induction Heating Output Frequency 6 - 50 kHz

Our TRMK-series frequency converters are designed to supply power to equipment that incorporates technology such as that used in induction heating, hardening, smelting and/or other applications where a parallel resonant circuit is required.

Principle

TRMK Converters consist of an input power supply switch (QS), a controlled rectifier (1), suppressor (2), current converter (3), and starting circuit (4), and spike/surge protection (5). Supply power is provided by LV or HV mains (50 Hz) through a matching transformer (sold separately).

All regulating, monitoring and control functions are handled by a PLC-based system. A closed-loop water cooling system is used to control the temperatures of the various electrical/electronic components of the system.

TRMK Design

Frequency converter is built into two connected heavy-duty steel cabinets with an IP-43 protection rating. The left cabinet contains the rectifier, converter, suppressor, input/output terminal boards, voltage sensors and over-voltage protection components, water temperature and flow sensors and a cool-water distributor with its own pressure and temperature sensors. The lower-half of the right cabinet contains the pump and a water-to-water heat exchanger. Control circuits including the controller rack and PLC are mounted in the upper half. Forced air circulation is provided for both partitions. Air cooling is assisted by a water-to-air heat exchanger located mid-cabinet.

Water cooling is accomplished through a two-circuit system. The closed inner-loop provides cooling of thyristors, transistors, and the suppressor. The circuit is designed with non-ferrous (non-conductive) materials and filled with a low-conductive liquid. The power circuits contains disc-shaped thyristors(dual-cooled) and IGBT transistors (also water-cooled).

System temperatures are constantly monitored and regulated by the central controller. The open outer-loop system is fed by the customers external water supply. In addition to its enhanced overall design and construction, the new control circuit system helps the TMK-series frequency converters achieve outstanding performace in the field of current converters.

Advantages of TRMK

  • high efficiency throughout the entire output range, over 90%
  • modifiable range of output power from 10% to 100% of the nominal value
  • modifiable range of output frequency (fmin – fmax) 40% - 100% of the nominal value
  • a closed-loop cooling circuit with a low-conductive water helps reduce the negative electrochemical effects to the cooling components and provides improved insulation for the power circuits
  • start and run reliability within a wide range of load impedance
  • converter design also facilitates installation in a dusty environment
  • perfect galvanic separation of control and power circuits
  • clear and simply-interfaced controls provide quick system fault location in order to decrease down-time
  • high-interference immunity for control circuits
