Eaton’s CBC-8000 capacitor bank control is designed to operate utility distribution feeder capacitors. Offering increased security, simplified installation, reduced training and lower cost of ownership, the highly flexible control can be readily deployed in advanced automation schemes such as Eaton's Yukon Integrated Volt/VAR control, SCADA and distribution management systems. The CBC-8000 capacitor bank control is one of Eaton's grid automation system solutions.
Modular, economical controllers support stand-alone functionality and a variety of communication configurations
Three-phase power quality measurements
Voltage control algorithm to address feeder voltage violations
Kvar algorithm to optimize power factor to user-selectable target
Maintain grid stability during unexpected events
Monitoring every aspect of a site’s health, the CBC-8000 control facilitates increased energy efficiency, enhanced productivity and improved power quality. Each control has the ability to act as a stand-alone, one-way or two-way communicating device with advanced distribution automation features and a robust offering of failsafe modes that enable a utility to maintain grid stability during unexpected periods of communication network downtime.
Analog inputs for greater accuracy
Monitor every aspect of site’s health with full three-phase voltage, current, VAR and harmonic monitoring, as well as capacitor bank neutral current monitoring via analog inputs for greater accuracy.
DISTRIBUTION AUTOMATION & ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Increasingly, utilities are also looking at products to manage distribution system voltages in order to reduce demand and energy consumption and achieve significant energy savings.
Conservation voltage reduction (CVR) strategies reduce demand and energy consumption while maintaining customer voltage power quality per established standards.
The operational benefits are improvements in energy efficiency and system voltages in the distribution system.
The business benefits are a greater percentage of energy delivered to paying customers, deferment in investment in peaking generation plants and charges, and a reduction in the environmental impact of energy delivery.
Supports three-phase voltage current, power factor and harmonics monitoring points.
Allows utilities to monitor and assess power quality for every utility customer and to enable automation applications.
Every control is a robust, feature-rich device that can be deployed as a stand-alone operating control, or a remote communicating device with local communications failsafe settings.
Control algorithms include Time, Temperature, Voltage, Current, Kvar, SCADA Override and Remote operation.
As distribution generation is increasing, utilities need controls that can operate correctly based on power flow and the generation source.
The CBC-8000 control has a number of algorithms to address the challenging conditions distributed generation causes.
The CBC-8000 control is designed to easily integrate a variety of communication radios and modems.
Utilities can purchase the CBC-8000 control radio-ready or with a utility radio installed at the factory.
The equipment can be preprogrammed at the factory with your utility's settings file for the ultimate in installation simplicity.
The CBC-8000 control is a highly configurable control that can be programmed using ProView NXG configuration software, configured using the control front pane, or by Eaton’s Yukon Fleet Management application.
Yukon IED manager suite (IMS) software fully supports the CBC-8000 control and is a perfect solution for utilities needing to manage firmware, settings and user access.
Yukon IMS software improves productivity by automating processes that were previously performed by sending technicians to the field.
Utilities can send and update files and perform audit logging of who accesses and modifies settings or installs firmware
ProView NXG software requirements
Microsoft Windows 10
Windows 7 SP1 Operating System
2 GHz Intel Pentium processor (or equivalent)
700 MB of free hard-disk storage space
Monitor screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels (or higher)
The latest version of ProView NXG requires the .NET framework version 4.6, which will be installed along with ProView NXG.
