C-line Automatic Source Transfer System

C-line offers a unique Solution of Automatic Source Transfer System (ASTS) combining compactness
with high performance & customer convenience. The range covers ratings from 125 A to 2000 A in 5
frame sizes.
Changeover S-D consists of two separate sets of terminals for incoming supplies and a set of output
terminals to connect the common load. Thus, changeover switch maintains continuity of supply to
the load by alternating between priority & back-up supply.

Basic function of ASTS


In auto mode source-I (priority source) is continuously monitored. In case of source-I failure
controller checks for the Source-II (back-up source). If it is available then controller gives command
to motorised changeover to shift on source-II.
On restoration of source-I (priority source) motorised changeover moves back to it.

Motorised changeover switch has 3 stable positions as define below

POSITION I
POSITION O
POSITION II
Switch is in ON -I position with Switch is in OFF position and Switch is in ON -II position with
priority supply available at the outgoing terminals are isolated back up supply available at the
outgoing terminals
from both suppliers
outgoing terminals

continuously monitored by AST controller

Auxiliary Contact Set connection:


Two sets of pre-wired changeover auxiliary contacts one for
each S-D. Same is used for power contact position feedback &
status indication

Illuminated push buttons

Auto Mode
In auto mode source-I (priority source) is continuously monitored, in case of source-I failure AST
controller checks for the Source-II (back-up source ) . If it is available then AST controller gives
command to mortorised changeover to shift on source-II.
On restoration of source-I ( priority source ) motorised changeover moves back to it.
Illumintion in the push buttons will be functional Indication of the the motorised changeover switch
position.
Option of setting over voltage : Recommended setting 110% of the supply voltage
Option of setting under voltage : Recommended setting 90% of the supply voltage
Option of setting time delay : 0 -15 seconds

Manual Mode ( Electrical )


Control of motorised changeover switch using illuminated push buttons.

Manual Mode ( Operating handle )


Manual control using operating handle, as a safety feature the control supply of motorised
changeover is automatically cut off during the insertion of handle.

Motorised Changeover

Auto Mode
In auto mode source-I (priority source) is continuously monitored, in case of source-I exceeds the set
limits AuXC 1000L controller checks for the Source-II (back-up source ) . If it is available then
controller gives command to mortorised changeover to shift on source-II after the set delay time, it
also controls the startup and shutdown of the generator set, if any
When the Source-I (priority source) returns within the set limits, the unit switches over the load
again to priority source and controls the generator set cooling cycle.

Other Benefits & Features in Auto Mode:

Protection against UV, OV , phase loss, asymmetry , under frequency and over frequency.
6 programmable digital inputs & relay outputs (5NO + 1C/O)
Measuring and sensing of system variables
DG set start/stop control
Priority source swap

Manual Mode ( Electrical )


In manual mode motorised chanogeover switch is controlled by pressing the relevant key (F and E
keys) for a minimum time of 300ms.
The command is accepted only when 1sec has elapsed from the end of the previous switching.

Manual Mode ( Operating handle )


Manual control using operating handle, as a safety feature the control supply of motorised
changeover is automatically cut off during the insertion of handle.
