Paralleling device SIPROTEC 7VE85 is specifically designed for the synchronization of generators (power plant units) with the power grid or synchronization of 2 electricity-supply systems.
The 1.5- and 2-channel synchronization function is the made function of the SIPROTEC 7VE85. To warrant a high level of security and reliability, the software works with various monitoring functions. In addition, the most important hardware components are duplicated. Two different measuring algorithms are used in accordance with the multi-channel redundancy. This avoids overfunctions through systematic errors. At the same time, the different methods of measurement are applied and processed independently of each other with different memory areas. The high level of reliability and flexible options to adapt to the equipment requirements allow a wide variety of applications.

The SIPROTEC 7VE85 recognizes the operating conditions automatically and reacts in accordance with the settings. In“Switching synchronous electrical power systems” operating mode the frequency difference is measured with a high level of accuracy. If the frequency difference is almost zero for a long time, this is referred to as a synchronous electrical powersystem, for which a wider switching angle can be permitted.
If asynchronous conditions occur, such as when synchronizing the generators, the speed is automatically adjusted to the power frequency and the generator voltage in an electrical power system. It is then switched, taking into consideration thesynchronization in accordance with the circuit breaker closing time.
The 1.5-channel parallel switching function (synchronization function and synchrocheck) is provided for use in small tomedium-sized generators and in electrical power systems. This function is more secure than a 1-channel paralleling device and can also be used for synchrocheck applications. For larger Generators and electrical power systems with high safety requirements, the 2-channels parallel switching function is recommended.In this example two distinctly independent methods of measurement decide on the switching conditions.
Furthermore, SIPROTEC 7VE85 offers additional current, frequency, power and voltage protection functions and manyother control and monitoring functions. As a result, the paralleling device offers synchronization and protection functions in a single device. With its modular structure, flexibility and the powerful DIGSI 5 engineering tool, the SIPROTEC 7VE85 device offers future-oriented system solutions with high investment security and low operating costs.
