ABB VFD drives are developed, manufactured and sales by ABB Group, it’s a famous brand VFD. It’s mainly used to control and adjust three phase AC motor’s speed. Due to its stable performance, rich combination of features, high performance vector control technology, low speed with high torque output, good dynamic characteristics and superior overload capacity, ABB drives occupy an important position in global VFD markets.

VFDs are used to control AC induction motor speed and torque, while the induction motor is the major equipment in industrial areas. ABB is the global market leader of variable frequency controller and motor areas.
Variable frequency technology extends the motor running speed range - from zero speed to above the motor rated speed - to improve the production efficiency of the transmission process significantly. In the case the motor only needs a lower capacity, the VFD can reduce the motor speed to save energy.

ABB standard drives are easy to installation, set up and operation, to save a lot of time for you. The VFDs are widely available and can be purchased from all of ABB's distributors, thus it called standard drives. Those drives have common fieldbus interface, processes, specifications, design, debug and maintenance.

ABB ACS 2000 drives
ABB Air-cooled ACS 2000 VFD drive is dedicated to the cement, mining, metallurgy, pulp and paper, water supply, electricity and chemical, oil gas etc, for the fans, pumps , compressors , and other common applications.
ABB ACS 2000 drives combine with innovative technology to address the industry challenges , such as the flexible power supply connections, lower harmonics, reduce energy consumption, SVC (Static Var Compensator) and easy installation, debugging.

Flexible power supply connection
ABB ACS 2000 VFD drives can be without using the input isolation transformer, depending on user’s choice and the existing equipment situation, thus allow the variable frequency drive connects to the power supply directly (direct power grid connection), or can be connected to a input isolation transformer.
In direct power grid connection configuration mode, clients can benefit from the lower investment cost due to there is no transformer. Compare with other VFDs which need transformer, ABB ACS 2000 drives have more compact design, lighter weight, lower transportation costs, and need smaller installation space.

Lower harmonics
ABB ACS 2000 drives integrated Active Front End (AFE) technology, without using expensive and dedicated transformer,  ACS2000 VFD can minimize the power grid harmonic, and with additional four-quadrant operation and reactive power compensation benefits.
AFE provides low harmonic to meet the various criteria for current and voltage harmonics requirements. Thus, there is no need for harmonic analysis or installing a line filter.

Reduce energy consumption
In order to achieve minimize energy consumption, AFE allows four-quadrant operation to make braking energy back to the power grid.

Reactive power compensation
AFE also can provide reactive power compensation. With SVC, the VFD can maintain a smooth voltage characteristic, and avoid the reactive power punishment.

Easy installation, commissioning and maintenance
With direct power supply connection technique, to allow the VFD installation and commissioning work faster and more convenient. Installing a VFD, simply use ABB "three in - three out" wiring concept, disconnect the direct power supply running and connect to the VFD, then connect the VFD to the AC motor .
ABB ACS2000 drives were designed with withdrawable phase module for quick replacing all of the VFD's components from the drive's front side, the mean time to repair (MTTR) is in leading level of the whole industry.

High reliability
ABB ACS 2000 drives adopt multi-level voltage source inverter (VSI) topological structure, mature high voltage IGBT power semiconductor technology and Direct Torque Control (DTC) motor control platform. Therefore, ACS2000 VFDs have high reliability, extend the mean time between failures (MTBF) and increased utilization.

ABB ACS 2000 VFD inherited the VSI topological structure and uses a patented IGBT-based multi-level design, provides near-sinusoidal current and voltage waveforms, makes the VFD compatible with standard motor and cable.

ACS 2000 VFD's control platform uses ABB's award-winning DTC platform, which provides maximum torque, speed performance and lowest energy loss which never happened in medium voltage variable frequency drives. In all conditions, the VFD's control is quick and smooth.
