Safety technology for theprotection of persons and systemsWind turbine systems are subject tothe Machinery Directive, which includesspecifications about safety. The ISO 13849-1is especially important, as the wind-specificIEC 61400 does not include concreteinformation about the design of the safetyrelatedparts of a control system. Theprobability of failure of the safety-relatedparts of a control system over the entiresystem lifecycle is taken into account –from sensor and actuator to the controlsystem.The safety components fromPhoenix Contact are easy to handleand combine innovative connectiontechnologies as well as compact, spacesavingand clearly arranged design. Inorder to fulfill the applicable directives andstandards, the products are continuouslydeveloped further and certified inaccordance with the current functionalsafety requirements for machines andsystems.This results in the highest quality, safety andreliability.Certified safety• Up to category 4, PL e as per DIN EN ISO 13849-11• SILCL 3 as per DIN EN IEC 62061• SIL 3 as per IEC 61508• Germanischer Lloyd (GL), for use in shipbuilding andoffshore systemsModular PSR safety relayThe safety relay system is based on a master safety relay andcan be easily extended without any configuration.• Easy I/O extension up to 10 modules• Safe cross-wiring with PSR-TBUS connectors• Automatic mode selection12 PHOENIX CONTACT

Fieldbus networking andremote monitoringThe control system is the heart ofautomation. It communicates with thesensors and actuators on the field side.This means acquiring and processing signals,and sending commands to the process.For a smooth communication betweenthe sensors and actuators and the controlsystem, digital and analog signals must beswitched, converted, adapted, amplified,connected and supplied. Fieldbus systemsare the central artery for communication.Fiber optics technology is the first choicefor maximum availability. It offers thehighest immunity to interference evenunder extreme electromagnetic conditionsas well as absolute electrical isolationbetween all communication modules.Fieldbus networking using fiber opticsFor interference-free fiber optics networking of drives,converters and control units, we recommend the use ofthe modular fiber optics transmission system PSI-MOS. It isavailable for all common communication systems – inductivecouplings on the transmission path are thus athing of the past. Comprehensive diagnosticsfunctions as well as the possibility of aredundant networking also allow afurther increase in availability.14 PHOENIX CONTACT

Signal conditioning andmonitoringRelayThe super-compact relay series PLC-Interface is used especiallyfor coupling signals as well as for switching loads up to250 V / 10 A. It is characterized by a very compact design,pluggable and rugged power relays, wear-free and vibrationresistantsolid-state relays and a wide range of accessories.Reliable power suppliesQUINT POWER power supplies increase the availability of thewind turbine system: Even the standard power circuit-breakerscan be triggered reliably and quickly with selective fusebreakingtechnology (SFB), six times the nominal current for 12 ms.Faulty current paths are switched off selectively, the faultis located and important system parts remain in operation.Comprehensive diagnostics are provided through constantmonitoring of the output voltage and current.This preventive function monitoring visualizes critical operatingstates and reports them to the control system before an erroroccurs.16 PHOENIX CONTACT

MINI AnalogElectrical isolation of analog signals, signal conversion,temperature measuring or threshold value switching in adesign width of only 6.2 mm. The Mini Analog range fromPhoenix Contact offers these and more comprehensivefunctions.In many applications, the analog signal transmission comprisesa high number of channels in a small space. Here in particular,fault-avoiding, time-efficient and thus cost-saving wiringsolutions are of great importance.Besides an intelligent supply concept based on DIN railconnectors, the system cabling also ensures minimal wiringeffort. The laterally accessible DIP switches allow easy andquick module configuration without complex softwareparameterization.MonitoringMonitoring and timer relays perform different tasks inwind turbine systems. For instance, the current monitoringmonitors the motor current for nacelle adjustment (and thusthe motor load). A "restart inhibit" after the overcurrentmonitoring has been triggered can be implemented using atimer relay. The battery voltage can be monitored with thehelp of the voltage monitoring.Individual threshold values can be set and monitored for thesystem parameters and time sequences. If threshold values areexceeded, relay outputs are used to signal irregularities earlyon, thus avoiding system downtime. These messages are animportant part of the system operation management.PHOENIX CONTACT 17

Lightning and surge protection –FundamentalsThe objective of wind turbine operators isto break even as soon as possible and toguarantee profitable system operation bymeans of reliable management. Expertsestimate a minimum lifetime of 20years for these calculations. The highinvestment costs must be amortizedin the minimum possible time. Theuninterrupted availability of all systemcomponents is the basis for this.Malfunctions and downtime due to thedamage caused by lightning and surgevoltages are reliably prevented by planningThe comprehensiveTRABTECH protectivecircuit conceptand implementing a comprehensive surgeprotection concept.Protected volumeLPZ 0ALPZ 0ALPZ 0ALPZ 0BLPZ 1 or LPZ 0BLPZ 2LPZ 2LPZ 0ALPZ 0ALPZ 1LPZ 0BLPZ 218 PHOENIX CONTACT

Design of thesurge protection conceptDue to their exposed locations andheight, wind turbine systems areparticularly at risk from lightningdischarges. Effective surge protectionbegins by assessing the potential riskand identifying all the devices within theobject to be protected.In addition, IEC 61400-24 "Windturbines – Lightning protection",directives of Germanischer Lloyd (GL)and IEC 62305 "Protection againstlightning" are the basis for the necessarydefinition of the LPZs (LightningProtection Zone) for wind turbinesystems:LPZ 0A describes a zone that isendangered by direct lightning strikesand the unattenuated electromagneticlightning field. The inner systems can beexposed to the entire lightning current.LPZ 0B describes a zone that isprotected against direct lightning strikesbut is endangered by the unattenuatedelectromagnetic lightning field. Theinner systems can be exposed to partiallightning currents.LPZ 1 describes a zone in which surgecurrents are restricted by currentdistribution and SPDs (Surge ProtectiveDevices) at the zone transitions. Theelectromagnetic lightning field can beattenuated by physical shielding.LPZ 2 describes a zone in which surgecurrents are further restricted bycurrent distribution and additional SPDs(Surge Protective Devices) at the zonetransitions. The electromagnetic lightningfield can be attenuated by additionalphysical shielding.The following surge protective devicesshould be installed at the transitionsbetween the lightning protection zones(e.g. for the protection of power supplyunits):LPZ 0A > LPZ 1:lightning arrester, class ILPZ 0B > LPZ 1:surge arrester, class IILPZ 1 > LPZ 2:device protection, class IIISource: GDVPhoenix Contact providesnot only the relevant surgeprotective devices but alsosupport in creating protectiveconcepts and offers industryspecificseminars in closecooperation with ourcustomers.PHOENIX CONTACT 19

Technology and know-how –Certified qualitySalt mist test – IEC 60068-2-11/-52Particularly in wind turbine systems,technical components must be markedand must always remain legible in acorrosive atmosphere. The salt contentof the air in combination with theincreased humidity places high demandson the labeling and materials used. Onthe basis of the above standard, it ispossible to simulate the influence ofa sea climate. The resistance of thematerials in a corrosive atmosphere istested using salt spray. The test objectsare placed in the test chamber andsubjected to a finely dosed spray of5% sodium chloride solution (NaCl;pH 6.5 – 7.2) at a temperature of 35°Cfor a period of 96 h. The test is followedby a visual check. In IEC 60068-2-52,testing is also performed using 5%sodium chloride, but under conditionswith different specifications.Phoenix Contact marking materials fulfillthese high requirements.Protection level monitoring – IEC 61643-1The availability of all system componentsis necessary for an uninterrupted andsafe operation of wind turbine systems.Surge protective devices are thereforeof particular importance when designingthese systems.An important component of thequalifying test is the protection levelmonitoring as per IEC 61643-1. Theresponse behavior and the course ofthe residual voltage are recorded whileapplying (1.2/50)μs surge voltage andthe (8/20)μs surge current to the testobject. The resulting protective level Upis a parameter that characterizes theperformance of the surge protectivedevice (SPD).28 PHOENIX CONTACT

Corrosion test – IEC 6988High-quality, gas-tight connections havea corrosion-free and a consistently lowohmic contact area even under theeffects of aggressive media.In the so-called Kesternich test, the testobject is exposed to an atmospherecontaining sulfur-dioxide at an ambienttemperature of 40°C.A visual check and the measurement ofthe contact resistance follows the dryingperiod, in order to assess the effectsof the corrosive environment on thecontact point.Vibration tests – IEC 60068-2-6The vibration resistance of an electricalconnection is verified with this test.Harmonic, sinusoidal vibrations areapplied to the test object to simulaterotating, pulsating or oscillating forces.A frequency range of 10–2000Hz, forexample, is covered at a speed of oneoctave per minute in all three axes (xyz).The r.m.s. value of the acceleration is50 m/s 2 , for example.The test object may not incur anydamage that would inhibit the furtheruse or negatively influence the constantelectrical values.Temperature shock test – IEC 60512-11-4, test 11dTemperature changes may occur inindustrial applications as a result ofthe process. Electrical connections inthe climatic chamber are subjectedto extreme temperature changes tosimulate such ambient conditions. Ina two-chamber procedure, the testobjects are moved between the lowerand the upper limit temperature(e.g. -50°C to +85°C) of the productwithin a few seconds and usually staythere for 45 minutes. No damage shouldoccur here that could affect further use.PHOENIX CONTACT 29
