- The AC800 series inverters of VEICHI provide reliable drive for maglev generators
Under the continuous promotion of the national dual-carbon strategy, energy conservation and consumption reduction, green and low carbon have become the mainstream trends of social and economic development. Maglev ORC power generation system, as a new type of environmentally friendly power generation equipment, is currently favored by the market. It has been widely used in biomass power generation, geothermal power generation, industrial waste heat power generation, and other fields.
Because the maglev generator uses the prime mover to drive the generator rotor to run at high speed, in practical applications, the voltage amplitude, frequency, and phase generated on the stator side cannot directly meet the needs of energy uploading to the grid. This places high demands on the system control at the drive end.
VEICHI has launched a new generation of AC800 series inverters based on years of accumulated technical advantages in inverter research and development and rich industry application experience. Not only can it provide high-precision, high-speed, and high-stability control for maglev generators at the drive end, but also debugging is more convenient and quicker.
Recently, according to the actual application scenario of an equipment factory, VEICHI provided it with a comprehensive solution of AC800-S75-T4-0104 inverter. It solves the technical problems of customers in the past and fully meets the application needs of maglev generators for power generation.
The AC800 series inverters of VEICHI
● The inverter is suitable for high-speed permanent magnet generators with a rated speed of 42000r/m (700Hz) and supports power generation conditions of up to 55kW and 800Hz.
● The full speed range of the machine side realizes speed sensorless control, and has two functions of zero speed start and rated speed switching.
● The network test is equipped with an LCL reactor and meets the technical requirements of the grid company for the inverter to be connected to the distribution network.
● It has 4 switch inputs, 2 relay outputs, 2 open collector outputs, AI2, AO2 (4-20mA), 485 (MODBUS-RTU), and other external interfaces.
● There are two working modes:
(1) Use the original power to drive the maglev generator to start to reach the rated speed. After the generator starts to the rated speed, the converter is switched on and used. The inverter is used for energy feedback to the grid.
(2) Use the converter to start the generator. After reaching the rated speed, the motive force is gradually added, and the converter is converted from electric to power generation.

The working flow of the high-speed permanent magnet generator on site is shown in the figure below. The low-pressure organic working medium vapor is changed into a low-pressure liquid organic working medium by cooling down, and then it is converted into a high-pressure liquid organic working medium through the working medium pump. Then, in the form of waste heat, the high-pressure liquid organic working medium is converted into high-temperature and high-pressure organic working medium steam, which is used as the motive force to drive the high-speed permanent magnet generator. The emitted high-frequency electric energy is converted into power frequency electric energy that can be absorbed and utilized by the power grid through the frequency conversion device.

The AC800 series inverter provided by VEICHI drives the electric energy generated by the high-speed permanent magnet motor in the power generation state, which can be fed back to the power grid from the AFE active front end, with low THD and high power factor, meeting the needs of grid connection. This solution can fully meet the technical requirements of customers for maglev generators.
The maglev generator adopts a 380V power supply system, as shown in the figure below. There are two working modes, the first one is the motive force to drive the maglev generator. The second is that the grid voltage is converted into DC power by the AFE active rectifier module and transmitted to the DC bus, and then distributed to the inverter module through the DC bus, and the inverter module drives the maglev generator.
Circuit topology of high magnetic levitation generator
The first way of working
When the motive force is used to drive the maglev generator to start, the rotor of the motor rotates, and the magnetic field lines are cut to generate current. When the motor reaches the rated speed, the inverter is switched on and used, and the electric energy generated by the power generation is directly fed back to the power grid through the AFE active rectification by the inverter.
The second way of working
When the inverter is started, the excitation current is passed through the three-phase windings on the stator side of the motor to generate a magnetic field. The rotor conductor of the motor cuts the magnetic field to generate an induced current, and the motor is in a state of generating electricity, and the motive force is gradually added. The inverter converts from electric power to power generation and directly feeds the power generated by power generation to the grid through AFE active rectification.
