Published on

Comprehensive Power ( is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance permanent magnet (PMAC) motors, variable speed generators, controls and drives. We provide enabling technology for rugged applications including several within the global oilfield, military, marine propulsion and renewable energy industries. The benefits of our high torque motors include providing full torque at stall speed, eliminating the need for any gearing, and our drive electronics provide several advantages around setup, resiliency, and maintenance. Our motors, which are designed for up to 20,000Hp and deliver as much as 214,400ft-lb of torque, feature unique characteristics around reduced size and weight, greater efficiency, and lower rotor inertia, relative to other solutions.

We invent and produce unique solutions which are manufactured in the USA, and we would like to power your next system.

  16. 16. The Most Advanced Modular Drive System The image on the right features multiple racks of TIM-270s, or TIMs (TeraTorq® Inverter Modules). Page 16Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  17. 17. TIMs  200kW / 250Hp power, 9”x9”x25” modules, typically deployed in arrays  TIM-270 modules are fully interchangeable with each other, reducing the number of spare parts needed to be stocked. Any TIM automatically performs:  AC/DC Rectification  DC/AC Inversion  DC/DC Power Balancing  TIMs are used to:  Drive motors  Transfer power from a generator or other source  Transfer power to/from a switchboard or a battery bank Page 17Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  18. 18. Theory of Operation - TIMs  Each module has 6 power terminals  DC plus, minus and ground  3 AC (input / output) phases  Connected to DC by IGBT switches  Current can flow in any direction based on switch control  IGBTs switch rapidly with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) control  Output is smoothed by phase inductors  Harmonics are actively controlled and reduced  AC voltage is between DC plus and minus  AC phases provide or draw current on command, at any frequency from DC to 1,000 Hz  Modules automatically balance loads when connected in parallel  Can draw power from lower AC voltages with active power factor correction Page 18 10/10/2013Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  19. 19. TIMs  Designed for continuous “always on” redundant, fail- safe system operation  The unlikely event of a failure of a TIM-270 in a multiple TIM system only decreases the system power proportionately  Such a failure still allows continued system operation and avoids emergency equipment shutdown  TIM-270 modules can safely and easily be swapped or replaced by anyone; no factory certification or special training is required. Replacing a TIM-270 is a simple “plug and play” operation. Page 19Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  20. 20. TFMs (TeraTorq® Frame Modules)  Modular, expandable drive mounting system with connections for  Power  Liquid cooling  Control  TFMs hold up to 4 TIMs  About 49” tall, 30.5” deep, 10” wide  All module connections are blind mate quick disconnect for safe and foolproof operation Page 20Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  21. 21. TCM (TeraTorq® Control Module)  Controls the operation of TIM lineups, which may be connected to motors, generators, renewable energy sources, batteries, ultracaps, switchboards, etc  Provides information to/from a system controller via the Modbus Application Protocol (MBAP) over an Ethernet TCP/IP connection  Support for web based data collection, troubleshooting, and preventative maintenance programs  System status is continuously logged locally and can be viewed over the internet:  Mode, power, status information  Voltages, speeds , currents, temperatures  Battery health (in hybrid systems)  Fault reporting and identification  Remote support personnel can spot many problems before they interfere with operation and help work through any unusual situation Page 21Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  22. 22. Page 22Comprehensive Power Proprietary Custom Solutions Custom PM motors and generators are designed and manufactured to support power, speed, size, weight, operational, and environmental requirements. Custom drive and control electronics can address specific power management, transmission, size and packaging requirements.
  23. 23. FAQs  Can I use TIM drive lineups with motors or generators that are not manufactured by Comprehensive Power?  Yes you can (although we would like you to consider all of our equipment, including our motors and generators, our drives are compatible with products from other manufacturers).  Can a TIM really be replaced by non-factory personnel?  Yes. After following your defined safe procedure to open the circuit breaker for the drive line, just push a button and pull the handle to remove a TIM, and then slide a replacement in.  Can I use my own housing for my TIMs, TFMs, and TCMs?  Yes. we will assist your design efforts and support the deployment of the equipment within your own housing.  Also we sell rack systems and cabinets, and we can also recommend partners who also sell racks and cabinets for our power electronics. Page 23Comprehensive Power Proprietary
  24. 24. FAQs (con’d)  If a TIM fails, does my system stop operating?  No. In the unlikely event of a TIM failure, the remaining TIMs will continue to operate, and the drive lineup will have proportional power available.  Does a TIM need to be programmed or require a hardware modification to perform an AC/DC conversion or another function?  No. Any TIM can perform any function, and any TIM can be placed in any TFM slot. The TIM’s function is controlled by a TCM which is part of the drive lineup.  Can this drive and power electronics system function as a Microgrid?  Yes. TIM systems support power being supplied from one or multiple sources, including transformers, switchboards, grid connections, generators and battery banks. Power can be distributed to multiple loads, including hotel loads, MCCs, motors and battery banks. Page 24Comprehensive Power Proprietary
