Title: Lifting BLS Power Supplies

Abstract

This note describes BLS power supplies lifting techniques and provides stress calculations for lifting plate and handles bolts. BLS power supply weight is about 120 Lbs, with the center of gravity shifted toward the right front side. A lifting plate is used to attach a power supply to a crane or a hoist. Stress calculations show that safety factors for lifting plate are 12.9 (vs. 5 required) for ultimate stress and 5.7 (vs. 3 required) for yield stress. Safety factor for shackle bolt thread shear load is 37, and safety factor for bolts that attach handles is 12.8.

  • There are three aspects of energy performance. The first is efficiency, and it specifically affects fuel use and the amount of emissions produced in relation to the amount of energy used and the fuel mix used in generation plants. Heat is rejected into the space with the result being additional air-conditioning to remove the heat. This often affects the capacity of the air-conditioning system. Customer electric bills are higher when more energy is used. The next important aspect of energy performance is peak electric demand. The capital requirements that utilities must put in place to deliver power to the customermore » affect many decisions made about energy efficiency and reduction of energy use. The capital requirements comprise 70 to 80% of the cost of delivering electricity to customers, while the fuel and variable costs associated with actually generating electricity are relatively small-20 to 30% of the total costs. In many respects, demand-side management programs are focused on reducing the need for increased capital equipment. Another aspect of energy performance is power quality. This is an important ally issue that could be addressed with initiatives similar to those for energy efficiency. Most power quality problems are related to current harmonics. Electronic equipment commonly reflects current harmonics back into the system, producing significant effects on the capacity of the system to deliver power. Immunity to poor power quality may be the most important aspect in receiving the benefits of improved power quality and power-conditioned equipment. Immunity is defined by the Computer and Business Equipment Manufacturers Association curve, which defines how `robust` the power supply must be with particular respect to low voltages. The immunity to different power quality problems could be dramatically improved by using existing technologies.« less
  • The EMC design for fundamentals of power supplies pertaining to the reduction of the common mode coupling of small risetime transients from the ac power distribution network to the dc bus are outlined. A test method for the evaluation of power supply transient attenuation for all realistic installation modes is described. The method is ideal for time saving experimental optimization as the attenuation is displayed in real time as a frequency domain representation. To illustrate the problems connected with common mode transient attenuation, measurements on a standard power supply designed at Elektronikcentralen were carried out. It was demonstrated by circuitmore » calculations and by measurements that only one generally applicable method exists to achieve a large common mode transient attenuation. That is inserting a choke with a very large first resonance in series with all leads entering the power supply from the ac distribution network.« less
  • This note is written for users who need better than about 100 ppm regulated magnet fields in electromagnets. A magnet excitation current regulation of 100 ppm is generally specified to obtain this field regulation, but there are many other variables, in addition to magnet excitation that can change the magnet field. The effects of these other variables are often overlooked or underestimated. If things do not work out, the power supply often gets blamed. A field regulation of 100 ppm requires that the power supply regulates substantially better than 100 ppm and that the effects of other variables are limited.more » Before we can talk about regulation we must define what regulation is. Power supplies can be regulated for current or voltage. We will only talk about current regulation, since that is the regulation mode used to establish precisely regulated magnetic fields in electromagnets. It is assumed that the same current value will always produce the same corresponding magnetic field value. Later on we will discuss that this assumption is not correct.« less
