Inverter Duty Transformer
Posted 08 March 2008 - 11:15 AM
We have a project to make a VFD based panel for a 2080 volts 60hz 250 hp submersible pump ( 300 metres deep).
The vendor is proposing a 380 volts VFD of rated capacity and a inverter duty Autotransformer to stepup the output of drive to 2080 volts.
I find it a bit odd, to put a stepup Auto-transformer in between the drive and the motor.
I recommended a 2080 volts rated VSd and to put the transformer on the line side.
The available supply is 380 volts 60 hz.
Is it Ok to put a Auto-transformer at the output of drive?

Yes, a motor is just a rotating transformer and this is done frequently.
The only issue is if the drive was a sensorless vector, it may get confused. You are best to operate in V/F mode.
I would work on the suppliers recommendations to ensure that there are no incompatibility issues.
