Abstract

Provided is a tension control device capable of suppressing a speed overshoot of rolling stock after exiting a final rolling stand of a finishing mill, to improve the accuracy of a stopping position of a tail end of the rewound rolling stock. The tension control device controls the tension of the rolling stock when the rolling stock that has exited the final rolling stand of the finishing mill is being wound onto a mandrel via a pinch roll. The tension control device is configured to be capable of switching a rotational drive of the mandrel between speed control and current control. The tension control device comprises a selecting means for comparing a torque required for speed control and a torque required for current control and selecting the smaller torque as a final torque, and an integrator for integrating an output of the speed control, and is additionally provided with a limit setting unit for setting a limit corresponding to a tension reference for the integrator, the configuration being such that the output of the integrator does not become saturated.

Abstract

A bidirectional chopper (2) selectively performs a charging operation for storing DC power received from DC bus lines (L1, L2) into an electricity storage device (7) and a discharging operation for outputting the DC power of the electricity storage device (7) to the DC bus lines (L1, L2). An inverter (3) converts the DC power received from the DC bus lines (L1, L2) into AC power to supply the AC power to a load (8) and converts a regenerative power generated by the load (8) into DC power to output the DC power to the DC bus lines (L1, L2). In the electricity storage device (7), a SOC reference value is set that is smaller than the upper limit value of an SOC usable range and larger than the lower limit value of the usable range. When an AC power supply (6) is healthy, a control device (5) controls the bidirectional chopper (2) so that the SOC of the electricity storage device (7) becomes the SOC reference value. When the AC power supply (6) is failed, the control device (5) controls, on the basis of the usable range, the discharging operation corresponding to the powering operation of the load (8) and the charging operation corresponding to the regenerative operation of the load (8).

Abstract

Provided is a camber control device for a continuous rolling mill, capable of reducing a camber in a tip part of a rolling material and suppressing the occurrence of telescoping of a steel strip coil. In this invention, a tip camber measurement unit calculates a tip camber measurement value at a rolling material tip part on the basis of a meandering amount of the rolling material detected by a meandering amount detector. A camber rectification leveling computation unit calculates a camber rectification leveling amount on the basis of the tip camber measurement value. A tip leveling setting unit sets a tip leveling control length and a tip leveling correction amount for reducing the tip camber for a reduction leveling device of each rolling stand. A reduction leveling control unit adjusts the reduction leveling device to a tip-leveling-correction-amount-added position before the rolling material enters the each rolling stand and adjusts the position of the reduction leveling device in such a manner that the tip leveling correction amount gradually decreases after the rolling length at the each rolling stand has reached the tip leveling control length.

Abstract

The daisy chain communication path of this power conversion system connects a master station that controls a plurality of slave stations each including a power conversion device and the plurality of slave stations to each other. The plurality of slave stations are configured so as to supply power from the power conversion device within each slave station to each load device. The plurality of slave stations switch between "operation" for supplying power from the power conversion devices and "stop" for interrupting the supply of the power to supply the power to the respective load devices. The daisy chain communication path forms a set of a first communication path for sending a control signal α and a second communication path for sending an operation permission signal β. When detecting a communication failure, each of the plurality of slave stations "stops" the supply of power to the power conversion device of a relevant slave station that has detected the communication failure and controls the other slave stations among the plurality of slave stations using the control signal α and the operation permission signal β to "stop" the supply of the power to the power conversion devices of the other slave stations. After that, in a state in which the power supply from each power conversion device is "stopped", the whole or a part of the plurality of slave stations notify, using the control signal α, the master station of information about a failure location in which the failure location is identifiably specified.

Abstract

In the present invention, a command value limiter applies limits to command values which are issued by a host device and which are for charging power and discharging power. A drive signal generator generates a drive signal for an inverter circuit in accordance with a command value for charging power limited by the command value limiter or a command value for discharging power limited by the command value limiter. A PI controller, in response to a direct-current voltage that is applied to the inverter circuit being higher than the working voltage of a charging limiter, calculates a PI control value (a PI control value for limiting charging) for the deviation between the direct-current voltage and the working voltage of the charging limiter and, in response to the direct-current voltage being lower than the working voltage of a discharging limiter, calculates a PI control value (a PI control value for limiting discharging) for the deviation between the direct-current voltage and the working voltage of the discharging limiter. A limiter regulator strengthens limitation of the command value for charging power from the command value limiter in accordance with the PI control value for limiting charging and strengthens limitation of the command value for discharging power from the command value limiter in accordance with the PI control value for limiting discharging.

This plate crown control device controls tandem rolling equipment on the basis of an outlet plate crown setting calculation value of each stand as calculated by setting calculation, a mechanical plate crown setting calculation value of each stand, and a bending force and shift position setting value of each stand. A processor calculates a first current learning value on the basis of the difference between a mechanical plate crown observation value and a mechanical plate crown result calculation value. The processor proportionally divides a first learning value by the first current learning value and a smoothing gain and updates the first learning value. The processor, in the next setting calculation and thereafter, calculates the bending force and shift position setting value of each stand by using a corrected mechanical plate crown setting calculation value obtained by adding the first learning value to the mechanical plate crown setting calculation value.

The state determination unit determines the operation state of the synchronous motor. The drive control unit controls the drive of the synchronous motor using either one of the first phase and the second phase on the basis of a determination result of the operation state of the synchronous motor. The first phase estimation unit corrects the first phase by using a detection result for the rotor position detected in a period from the start of a startup process for the synchronous motor to the success of the startup.
