SINAMICS medium voltage converters - commissioning checklist


Security information

In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions constitute one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit https://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity.

Affected Products / Portfolio

    Medium-Voltage Converters - The next level of versatility for cell-based medium voltage drives!
    With this M2C topology based design, the drive can be scaled precisely for a very wide range of voltage and output power. The ability to bypass any cell during operation in less than 5 ms, and maintain the full output voltage, is why it offers your application maximum availability. The drive offers some unique features that contribute to its versatility like a separate transformer and control cabinet configurations, marine certification, and Arc Fault tested design.
    Medium-Voltage Converters - A universal and simple MV-drive converter for single-motor applications with variable and constant torque characteristics in a compact and efficient design, but without regenerative feedback. The SINAMICS GM150 (IGBT / IGCT) variable speed drive offers simplicity due to the use of standardized engineering tools like Drive Technology Configurator for system integration and STARTER for fast and user-friendly commissioning. SINAMICS GM150 distinguishes itself as competitive, rugged and service friendly.
    Medium-Voltage Converters - The rugged LCI variable speed and starting converter for large synchronous motors and generators!
    The LCI-converter is designed for single-motor applications with variable and constant torque characteristics in power ratings up to 85 MW (Higher ratings on request). Available in air- and water-cooled designs and capable of 2Q or 4Q operation. Commonly used for variable-speed operation as well as for start-up operation of large synchronous motors and generators and with speeds ranging up to approx. 7000 rpm.
    Medium-Voltage Converters - The SINAMICS SM150 is a high-end drive converter for low and high speed applications with single or multimotor system configurations that might require high dynamic performance and regenerative capabilities. Available in drive configurations featuring either IGBT and IGCT technology for a wider power range of medium voltage applications.
    Medium-Voltage Converters - Designed for applications with special or complex requirements. All of the system versions and functions allow for numerous product specific solutions tailored to your applications' needs. The power units come from SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY GH150 and the predecessor SINAMICS SM120 CM due to the proven advantages of those product lines.
