4 PROBLEM DESCRIPTION The IEC requieres type test for temperature rise, short circuit and arc flash for low and medium voltage switchgears and controlgears. In Colombia there are no labs with the required capacity to execute this kind of test. This restriction adds limitations to certifications process, increasing time and costs for the development of new products. Common costs of type tests 2 Prototypes: U$ ~ Logistics: U$ ~3.000 Labs tests: U$ ~ TOTAL AVE: U$ ~ Time for Results: 3 Months (In best case)
5 OBJECTIVES Verify by means of simulation the accordancy of switchgears and controlgears, during IEC type test for temperature rise, short circuit and arc flash. Increase the likelihood of success of the switchboards during the execution of type tests in the labs. Speed up the development and certification process of colombian manufacturers of switchboards. Decrease the cost of development of new products.
6 METHODOLOGY - General Based on the requirements of the IEC standards, a comparative analysis is made between the expected results and the simulated results.
7 METHODOLOGY Short Circuit type test IEC Reference standars IEC and 2 Num 7.5 / NTC 3475 IEC Num 6.6 / NTC-3309 Applied physics (ANSYS Modules) Electromagnetic (steady or transient): Joule effect. Thermal (steady or transient): Heat transfer coefficient, Temperature field. Structural (static or transient): Non Linear materials, thermal deformations.
8 AFTER TEST BEFORE METHODOLOGY Short Circuit type test NORMATIVE REQUIREMENTS SIMULATION VERIFICATION Normal operating conditions Normal operating conditions TEST Representative prototype3d CAD Controlled conditions No variation in conditions (Ideal conditions) Structural No plastic deformations Electrical Thermal No way to evaluate this now No metal melting or softening temperature
9 METHODOLOGY- Temperature rise Reference standars IEC & 2 Num 7.5 IEC Num 6.5 Applied physics (ANSYS Modules) Electromagnetic (steady): Joule effect. Thermal (steady): Temperature field in busbars and panels. CFD (steady): Heat transfer coefficient calculation.
10 AFTER TEST BEFORE METHODOLOGY- Temperature rise NORMATIVE REQUIREMENTS SIMULATION VERIFICATION Normal operating conditions Normal operating conditions Controlled conditions TEST Representative prototype3d CAD Structural Thermal No variation in conditions (Ideal conditions) N/A No temperature limit violation Electric Efficiency and power loss
11 METHODOLOGY- Arc Flash (Over-presure and gas evacuation) Reference standars. IEC and 2 Num 7.5 / NTC 3475 IEC Num 6.5 / NTC 3309 Applied physics (ANSYS Modules) Electromagnetic (transient): Joule effect. Thermal (transient): Temperature field in busbars and panels. Structural (Steady or transient): Deformations due to pressure wave. CFD (transient): Heat transfer coefficient calculation, gas evacuation simulation.
12 AFTER TEST BEFORE METHODOLOGY- Arc Flash (Over-presure) NORMATIVE REQUIREMENTS SIMULATION VERIFICATION Normal operating conditions Normal operating conditions TEST Representative prototype3d CAD Controlled conditions No variation in conditions (Ideal conditions) Structural No debris after detonation Thermal Electric Fluids No temperature limit violation Efficiency and power loss Gas evacuation and pressure wave values
13 ACHIEVEMENTS Improvement of the development process of new products for the electrical sector industries, faster and confident. Open discussion between the manufacturers and regulators about the opportunities, risks and benefits of simulation in the development of new products. Collaborative work with certification entities and local manufacturers of electrical products.
14 CONCLUSIONS It is possible to simulate the three type test shown here getting deeper results before real lab tests. It is necessary to standardize this process in order to facilitate the evaluation of results. It is necessary to involve the regulation bodies in the definition of the scope of the simulation of IEC type tests.
15 NEXT STEPS Implementation CFD models for the evacuation of gas during arc flash events. Validation of the results with primary source data for the three types of tests (currently we use secondary source). Implementation of the procedure as a design by analysis tool (i.e. ASME Section VIII div 3). Project for Colombian the electric cluster.
