ABB is a leading supplier of rotating machinery electrical solutions (RMES), including variable speed drive systems (VSDS), soft starter systems, direct on line motors.
ABB developed state-of-the-art testing facilities in Milan, in close cooperation with CESI, a center of expertise and a global provider of technical and engineering services, to verify equipment functionality and load performance.
These testing facilities enable ABB to give evidence that the equipment under test meets customer requirements and reduces installation and commissioning time spent onsite.
ABB’s testing area provides world-class facilities for back-to-back and full load testing of variable speed drive systems with transformer, frequency converter and motor.
Full load, no load, heat run, protection, vibration and noise tests will be performed in accordance with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards and vendor’s requirements, including the most stringent standards of the oil and gas industry.
The ABB testing facilites feature two test bays, covering an area of more than 4,600 square meters and two inertial platforms of 240 and 300 square meters, respectively.
- Test Bay One for back-to-back tests for regenerative VSDS up to 45MW shaft power or more on a case by case basis
- Test Bay Two for full load combined tests with dedicated load machine up to 30MW.
