myPV RVC Solution

A Complete Mitigation Solution For

In-Rush Current & Rapid Voltage Change

Two Standard Versions To Support a Wide Variety of Facility Design Applications.

WHAT’S IN-RUSH?

Transformers have internal windings that are electric “loads”.


Similar to when a HVAC or large motor turns on, causing lights to dim briefly, when transformers energize, the windings magnetizing creates a brief but disruptive load that can cause power quality concerns.


The sudden “load” creates an in-rush of current, and at the same time causes a voltage sag that distorts three-phase waveforms.


Collectively, these power quality issues can damage equipment, both inside and outside the facility.

HOW THE RVC WORKS

The RVC Solutions contains both a high impedance pre-insertion transformer and integrated switching to operate automatically on facility start-up.


At facility start-up, when grid voltage is restored, the RVC switches the pre-insertion transformer into the MV circuit so all current flows through it, limiting the total allowable in-rush current to a fraction of normal levels.


Once the transformers are magnetized and the in-rush event has passed, the RVC switches the pre-insertion transformer out of the MV circuit so the facility is ready to export at full power.


Should the facility be isolated and grid voltage go away, the RVC switches again, ready to perform the pre-insertion sequence.

AVAILABLE OPTIONS

Customize your RVC Solution these standard options:

  • Upgrade to a Multimode Fiber Switch (ST or SC)
  • Upgrade to a PoE Secure P2P WIFI Network
  • Specify a RVC PLUS to include revenue grade metering, protective relaying, and SCADA.

SELF-CONTAINED & FULLY AUTOMATED

The RVC connected in-line, between the Point-of-Interconnection (POI) and the Facility’s first step-up transformer.


The RVC includes an internal control power source and battery backup. No auxiliary service run is necessary.

Grid detection and switching automation is pre-programmed, factory tested, and 100% automated.


While the RVC’s operation can be monitored over the Facility’s network via modes TCP/IP, no SCADA or DAS integration is required for proper operation.

Every RVC Solution arrives to your facility:

  • Less than 5,000 Lbs, no Crane Required
  • UL 508a Labeled Controls Solutions
  • Built to ANSI, NEMA & IEEE Standards
  • 11 Gauge, NEMA 3R, Powder-coated Enclosure

STANDARD FEATURES

CHOOSE AN RVC PLUS AND COVERT UNPLANNED COST INTO VALUE

While the RVC is designed to be economical and reliable, the addition of unplanned capital equipment can pose challenges for any Facility budget.


To address these concerns, the RVC PLUS was created to take advantage of the compact nature of pad-mount equipment.

The RVC PLUS maintains the same compact footprint as the RVC, but includes the following features:

  • Integrate Functionality of the ClearSky:
    • Revenue Grade Metering (SEL-735)
    • Protective Relaying (SEL-751)
  • Integrated SCADA (myPV IQ)
