Hello.The question is - what is voltage levels thresholds for switch to AVR trim/boost and swithc back to live?Thank You.
Hello Vladimir -
May I please know that model number of the UPS that you have? It can be found on the white barcode sticker attached on the back of your UPS.
This is the common question, based on suppose that AVR is boosting, for example, if input is "Rated Output Voltage"-5% and higher than "Low Transfer Voltage", and trimming if input is (Rated Output Voltage)+5% and lower than "High Transfer Voltage".
I have number of different Smart UPS, from SURT10000 to SMT750.
Generally AVR has a +/- 12% range in the Smart UPS, unless your unit features double boost. This is not true for the SURT series units as they are Online units rather than Line Interactive.
So, if the output voltage is set to 230 VAC, boost will be activated at point 230-12%(230)=202.4 VAC, trim will be activated at point 230+12%(230)=257.6.I suppose i misunderstood You.
Sorry my carelessness, from the build-in NMC help:
High Transfer Voltage The upper limit of acceptable input voltage. When the input reaches this value, the UPS starts to use its AVR Trim feature. Low Transfer Voltage The lower limit of acceptable input voltage. When the input reaches this value, the UPS starts to use its AVR Boost feature or switches to battery operation if it does not have this feature. Okay, AVR boost/trim points may be specified obviously, how determine points of switching from AVR to battery.
Amount of boost or trim depends on the UPS model, which is why Jonathan asked. Lets assume 12%. V_in = Line Voltage RMS; hyst = hysteresis; => means implication. Treatment of hysteresis is for example only and may be different on an actual UPS.
V_in < Lower Transfer Point/(1+0.12)+hyst => UPS is on battery
Lower Transfer Point/(1+0.12)-hyst < V_in < Lower Transfer Point+hyst => UPS in boost
Lower Transfer Point-hyst < V_in < Upper Transfer Point+hyst => UPS normal
Upper Transfer Point-hyst < V_in < Upper Transfer Point/(1-0.12)+hyst => UPS in trim
Upper Transfer Point/(1-0.12)-hyst < V_in => UPS on battery
