The OP1261 is a connection hub for all OP1210 and the OP1260 protection, therefore it is the ideal place to centralize AC and DC control measurements. It allows users to implement these variables in their control schemes to regulates power flow between the MMC and the AC or DC grid. It also allows the user control to synchronize on the AC grid.
The following signals can be measured through this unit:
AC 3-phase voltages (L1 to neutral, L2 to neutral and L3 to neutral)
AC 3-phase current
The OP1261 measurement box also provides the auxiliary 48V power supply to the OP1210 units. The MMC topology interconnections (grid, sub-modules, inductors) are made through the OP1261.
DC measurement connector (banana jack): allows users to monitor DC voltage on external equipment (oscilloscope or multimeter). Use only high voltage differential probes.
AC measurement connector (banana jack): allows users to monitor AC voltage on external equipment (oscilloscope or multimeter). Use only high voltage differential probes.
Power switch: provides power to measurement circuits on internal board (5511) and controls auxilliary power to OP1210 units
