How do I configure an ATV71 drive for a synchronous motor.

Published date: 24 June 2020

Synchronous motor set up on an ATV71
Product Line:
All models and serial numbers
The CTT  [Motor control type] of the ATV71 drive must be changed from the default value of UUC [SVC V] to SYn [Sync. mot].  This selection makes the asynchronous motor parameters inaccessible, and the synchronous motor parameters accessible.

The following parameters can be acquired from the motor nameplate and must be entered into the motor control menu:
nCrS Nominal sync current
nSPS Nominal sync mot speed
PPnS Pole pairs number (sync)
PHS Sync. EMF constant
PrT Power Ident.
