Hi this is Joshua Fitzpatrick with AWC. Today I’m going to show y’all how to Commission a G120 Drive. First thing we need to do is open TIA Portal. I am currently working in V15. So, let’s get started.
Let’s “Create a New Project” G120 Commissioning. At the bottom left, we’re going to click “Project View.” Then we’re going to select this piece of paper that says “G120 Commissioning.” And then press “Go Online” and then “Upload Devices New Station.” Now you will need to set up an IP on your G120.
If you have not done so, I have another video that I will put at the bottom of the screen. So now press “Search” and I have a G120 set up as 192 168 0 dot 80. So now press “Upload.” Click “Upload” and say, “Upload from device.” Now let’s click on the G120, press “Go online.” Expand this, go down to “Commissioning,” double-click that, and now let’s go to the “Commissioning Wizard.” And we’re just going to set it up as a simple drive with no communication. Somebody just put ramp function in the drive. So, “Next.” How do we want to run this VFD? I’m just going to do “volts per Hertz.” This is where it gets tricky. So, you can choose amongst these. These are the macro settings that are set up on the drive. I just typically choose whatever my wiring is going to be closest to, and then I edit it accordingly. So, I’m just going to do the “I/O with MOP.” This is going to be your voltage into the drive so whatever the line voltage is (mine is going to be 230 because I’m working with a demo system) but yours could be 480 or something else. So, you’d have to know what your line power is.
Do I have a break resistor? No. I can either enter my motor nameplate via Siemens (via the side of the motor that I have) or I could just type in the motor nameplate data. So, I’m going to choose just to put in the motor nameplate data. So, I’m going to “Enter your motor nameplate data” and I’m going to type in 230 at 0.97 amps. The kW is going to be 0.18. The power factor is going to be cosine .77. The Hertz is going to be 50. RPMs is going to be 1350. And the cooling type is going to be just “non-ventilated.” How many motors are going to be in parallel? None of them, I’m just going to have a single motor. And do you have a temperature sensor? No. So, “Next.”
This is going to set up our alarm set points for our current limiting, our minimum and maximum speed, and our ramp functions – how fast we wanted to ramp up and ramp down. OFF1 is just your typical ramp down. OFF3 is your quick stop. So, like for an emergency or whatever you might want to do. “Next.” Do I want to do a motor ID run? Yes, because it’s the first time running this motor so I’m going to say “Yes”, and I will “Calculate motor data only.” Do you want to save RAM to ROM? “Yes.” So “Finish.”
Now the next thing after I’m done with the Commissioning Wizard Inside Portal, I want to go to my Control Panel. And I’ll click that. And then I’ll make this big, so you’ll see. So now let’s press “Active” and it’s going to say, “How fast do you want to communicate?” And I want to reset the “Drive Enable.” Press this thing to “Set,” and then see how it says, “motor measurement?” So now the first time I start up, it’s going to actually do a motor ID run. So, let’s press “Forward.”
So, we’re just going to let it do its motor measurement, and now it’s done with that. Let’s click “Set drive enable” so I can start it again. And let’s put it in a run. Let’s put it up to 1350 (rpm) and as you can tell speeds are ramping up, current is ramping up, Hertz is ramping up. So, looks like a running motor to me.
All right let’s stop it so we can be safe. Alright, that’s how to Commission a Drive. Thanks for watching.
