RP Series 800VA - 2000VA General purpose AC power sources Image

The RP Series consists of two models, 2001RP and 2003RP. These units are ideal sources for general purpose AC power applications that require variable voltage and frequency at power levels up to 2000 VA. The 2001RP provides single phase output and the 2003RP provides three phase output. With simple knobs used to set voltage, frequency and current limit, the RP Series provides an inexpensive source of AC power in a small and lightweight package. All RP Series power source models can be used in table-top mode or rack-mounted.

Features And Benefits
Key Features

  • 2000 VA Output Power
  • Portable Power, Low Cost
  • Readback Measurements
  • Rack Mount Chassis with detachable ears
  • 16 Hz to 5000 Hz Frequency Range
  • High Peak Current Capability
  • Remote Control Option

Controller Capabilities
The RP Series uses a precision digital sinewave generator to produce a low distortion output . Dual LCD readouts clearly display programmed settings for voltage, current limit and frequency. Load current is measured using true RMS sensing and can be displayed on the front panel as well. Adjusting voltage, frequency and current limit is accomplished using a set of digitally encoded rotary knobs. For ATE applications, both IEEE-488 and RS232C interfaces are available as an option.

Applications
The wide output frequency range of 16 Hz to 5000 Hz make the RP Series suitable sources for both commercial and avionics applications. Dual voltage ranges provide maximum output current at any programmed voltage up to 270 Volt (2003RP) or 300 Volt (2001RP). The built in rms. current measurement function eliminates the need for external current shunts or transformers to monitor load current. For front panel operation, the RP Series features simple and intuitive controls for setting voltage, frequency and current limits. Current drawn by the load can be read directly on the large LCD display with 1 mA resolution. With the addition of the RS232C and IEEE-488 interface option, the RP Series sources can be used in automated test environments. Since the RP Series offers a high power to size ratio, requiring limited rack height, they can be used to upgrade existing ATE stations or build new ones. The RP Series provides single or three phase output and is a very cost effective AC power source for Avionics applications, especially in the -AV version. The included PC control program supports transient generation to simulate real-world AC line conditions like brown-outs, voltage sags, surges and frequency fluctuations

Remote Control
The optional remote control interface allows complete control of all AC source functions and provides measurement data to the controller. This allows the RP Series AC source to be used as a low cost AC test system. A Windows™ Graphical User Interface (GUI) program is included with the interface option. Automatic power cycling and transient generation is made possible with the use of this GUI program. The GUI output control, measurement and transient screens are shown here. For quality assurance applications, measured voltage, current and VA readings can be logged to disk for documentation and analysis purposes. All data recorded is time stamped to create a complete history of each test run. Up to eight often used front-panel setups can be stored in non-volatile memory for quick recall from the PC controller through the interface. If needed, the front panel can be locked out to prevent operator intervention during test runs. The 2001RP and 2003RP offer additional features over the bus such as the ability to select the turn-on or turn-off phase angle of the output voltage. This capability, combined with the peak current measurement function, enables inrush current analysis of a unit under test

Applications
Transient programming is supported by the GUI program with user defined transient lists of up to 100 steps. Available transient functions are voltage step, voltage drop, voltage sweep, voltage surge/sag, frequency step, frequency sweep, frequency surge/sag as well as functions that combine both voltage and frequency changes. The intuitive Windows ™ interface greatly facilitates creating and storing often used transient programs. Transient programs can be recalled from disk and executed once, continuously or a specified number of times. Editing functions such as delete and insert make it easy to modify or expand existing programs. This capability makes it easy to evaluate products for immunity to common AC line disturbances such as brownouts, surges, swells, sags and frequency variations

This high power AC and DC test system covers a wide spectrum of AC and DC power applications at an affordable cost. Using state-of-the-art PWM switching techniques, the RS series combines compactness, robustness and functionality in a compact floor-standing chassis, no larger than a typical office copying machine. This higher power density has been accomplished without the need to resort to elaborate cooling schemes or additional installation wiring. Simply roll the RS unit to its designated location (using included casters), plug it in, and the RS series is ready to work for you.

Simple Operation

The RS Series can be operated completely from its menu driven front panel controller. A backlit LCD display shows menus, setup data, and read-back measurements. IEEE-488, RS232C, USB and LAN remote control interfaces and instrument drivers for popular ATE programming environments are available. This allows the RS Series to be easily integrated into an automated test system. For advanced test applications, the programmable controller version offers full arbitrary waveform generation, time and frequency domain measurements, and voltage and current waveform capture.

Configurations

The RS90 delivers output up to 90kVA in AC mode and 65% of rated power in DC and AC+DC mode.

For higher power requirements, the RS180, RS270, RS360, RS450 and RS540 models are available. Available reconfigurable RS models (-MB designation) provide multiple controllers which allow separation of the high power system into up to six individual RS90 units for use in separate applications. This ability to reconfigure the system provides an even greater level of flexibility not commonly found in power systems.

Product Evaluation and Test

Increasingly, manufacturers of high power equipment and appliances are required to fully evaluate and test their products over a wide range of input line conditions. The built-in output transient generation and read-back measurement capability of the RS Series offers the convenience of a powerful, and easy to use, integrated test system.

Regenerative, bidirectional “Green” Power Solution

The RS Series features the ability to both source and sink current, i.e. bi-directional current flow. The RS amplifier is designed to reverse the phase relationship between the AC input


Programming sink (-SNK) mode operation.

Avionics
With an output frequency range to 819 Hz (or 905 Hz with -HF option), the RS Series is well suited for aerospace applications. Precise frequency control and accurate load regulation are key requirements in these applications. The available IEEE-488 remote control interface and SCPI command language provide for easy integration into existing ATE systems. The RS Series eliminates the need for several additional pieces of test equipment, saving cost and space. Instrument drivers for popular programming environments such as National Instruments LabView™ are available to speed up system integration.

Regulatory Testing
As governments are moving to enforce product quality standards, regulatory compliance testing is becoming a requirement for a growing number of manufacturers. The RS Series is designed to meet AC source requirements for use in compliance testing such as IEC 61000, 3-2, 3-3, 3-11, 3-12, to name a few.

Choice of voltage ranges
The RS Series includeds 150V and 300V line to neutral. These models provide 3 phase output capability of 260 Vac or 520 Vac line to line respectively.
For applications requiring more than 300 V L-N (or 520 V L-L), the optional -HV output transformer provides an additional 400 V L-N and 693 V L-L output range for use in AC mode only.

High Crest Factor
With a crest factor of up to 3.6, the RS Series AC source can drive difficult nonlinear loads with ease. Since many modern products use switching power supplies, they have a tendency to pull high repetitive peak currents. The RS90 can deliver up to 720 Amps of repetitive peak current (150 V AC range) per phase to handle high crest factor three phase loads.

Remote Control
Standard RS232C & USB IEEE-488 along with optional LAN remote control interfaces allow programming of all instrument functions from an external computer. The popular SCPI command protocol is used for programming.

Harmonic Waveform Generation
Using the latest DSP technology, the RS Series programmable controller is capable of generating harmonic waveforms to test for harmonics susceptibility. The Windows Graphical User Interface program can be used to define harmonic waveforms by specifying amplitude and phase for up to 50 harmonics. The waveform data points are generated and downloaded by the GUI to the AC source through the remote interface. Up to 200 waveforms can be stored in nonvolatile memory and given a user defined name for easy recall.

All RS Series configurations offer three phase waveform generation, allowing independent phase anomalies to be programmed. It also allows simulation of unbalanced harmonic line conditions.

Arbitrary Waveform Generation
Using the provided GUI program or custom software, the user also has the ability to define arbitrary AC waveforms. The arbitrary waveform method of data entry provides an alternative method of specifying AC anomalies by providing specific waveform data points. The GUI program provides a catalog of custom waveforms and also allows real-world waveforms captured on a digital oscilloscope to be downloaded to one of the many AC source’s waveform memories. Arbitrary waveform capability is a flexible way of simulating the effect of real-world AC power line conditions on a unit under test in both engineering and production environments.

RS Series – AC and DC Transient Generation
The RS Series controller has a powerful AC and DC transient generation system that allows complex sequences of voltage, frequency and waveshapes to be generated. This further enhances the RS’s capability to simulate AC line conditions or DC disturbances. When combined with the multiphase arbitrary waveform capabilities, the AC and DC output possibilities are truly exceptional. Transient generation is controlled independently yet time synchronized on all three phases. Accurate phase angle control and synchronized transient list execution provide unparalleled accuracy in positioning AC output events.

Transient programming is easily accomplished from the front panel where clearly laid out menu’s guide the user through the transient definition process.

RS Series – Measurement and Analysis
The RS Series is much more than a programmable AC, DC or AC+DC power source. It also incorporates an advanced digital signal processor based data acquisition system that continuously monitors all AC source and load parameters. This data acquisition system forms the basis for all measurement and analysis functions. These functions are accessible from the front panel and the remote control interface for the RS Series.

Conventional Measurements [All controllers]
Common AC and DC measurement parameters are automatically provided by the data acquisition system. These values are displayed in numeric form on the front panel LCD display. The following measurements are available: Frequency, Vrms, Irms, Ipk, Crest Factor, Real Power (Watts), Apparent Power (VA) and Power Factor.

Harmonic Analysis
The RS Series provides detailed amplitude and phase information on up to 50 harmonics of the fundamental voltage and current (up to 16 kHz). Harmonic content can be displayed in both tabular and graphical formats on the front panel LCD for immediate feedback to the operator. Alternatively, the included GUI program can be used to display, print and save harmonic measurement data. Total harmonic distortion of both voltage and current is calculated from the harmonic data.

Waveform Acquisition
The measurement system is based on real-time digitization of the voltage and current waveforms using a 4K deep sample buffer. This time domain information provides detailed information on both voltage and current waveshapes. Waveform acquisitions can be triggered at a specific phase angle or from a transient program to allow precise positioning of the captured waveform with respect to the AC source output. The front panel LCD displays captured waveforms with cursor readouts. The included GUI program also allows acquired waveform data to be displayed, printed, and saved to disk.

Features Details Lx Series
HP6834B Compatibility
The Lx Series offers functional and bus compatibility with the Agilent HP6834B AC power sources as well as the CI iL Series AC power sources and may be used in existing test systems without the need to modify program code.
Power levels of 3000 VA and 4500 VA match the available HP6814B and HP6834B models exactly. Unlike these HP/Agilent models however, the Lx series supports a constant power mode, which provides higher output RMS current at reduced voltage for greater power output at less than full-scale voltage. (except 6000Lx, 12000Lx and 18000Lx) Furthermore, the Lx series can easily be paralleled for higher output power and multi-chassis Lx Systems up to 17.3 KVA are available allowing expansion of existing HP/Agilent based test systems.
The front panel operation has been simplified with a greatly reduced number of buttons while still allowing most functions to be accessed.

Waveform Generation
The Lx Series provides sine and clipped sine waveforms in addition to user defined arbitrary waveforms. Harmonic waveforms can be used to test for harmonics susceptibility of a unit under test. With the help of the supplied Windows Graphical User Interface program, defining harmonic waveforms is as easy as specifying the relative amplitude and phase angle for each of up to 50 harmonics. The user also has the ability to define arbitrary waveform data. Complex AC voltage anomalies can be simulated this way.
The waveform data points generated are downloaded by the GUI to the AC source through either IEEE-488 or RS232C bus and remain in non-volatile memory. Up to 32 user-defined waveforms can be stored and given a descriptive name for easy recall.
Downloaded waveforms are retained in non-volatile memory for recall over the bus or from the front panel.
Transient Generation
To simulate common line disturbance occurrences, the Lx Series offers a list of transient steps. These steps can be programmed from the front panel or downloaded over the interface using the GUI program supplied. The GUI allows libraries of commonly used line disturbances to be created on disk for quick recall. Once downloaded, the transient program can be executed from the PC or from the front panel.
AC transient generation allows the effect of rapid changes in voltage, frequency, phase angle and waveform shape on the unit under test to be analyzed. The combination of transients and user defined arbitrary waveforms creates a powerful test platform for AC powered products.

Measurements
The Lx Series measurement system is based on real-time digitization of the voltage and current waveforms using a 4K-sample buffer. The digitized waveform data is processed by a Digital Signal Processor to extract conventional load values such as rms voltage, rms current, real and apparent power. The same data is also used to perform Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) to extract the harmonic amplitude and phase angle of 50 harmonics.

Standard Measurements
The following standard measurements are available from the front panel or via the bus:

  • Frequency
  • Phase
  • Voltage (rms)
  • Current(rms)
  • Peak Current
  • Crest Factor
  • Neutral Current (rms)
  • Real Power
  • Apparent Power
  • Power Factor

Advanced Measurement Functions
In addition to standard load parameters, the Lx Series is capable of measuring voltage and current amplitude and phase harmonics. Total harmonic distortion of both voltage and current is also available.
Advanced measurement results like harmonic content of voltage and current for all three phases are available over the bus. The GUI can be used to save and print harmonics data in tabular, bar graph or time domain formats.
The acquired voltage and current time-domain waveforms for each output phase can also be displayed using the GUI program. Waveform displays on the PC include voltage and current combined, three-phase voltage, three-phase current and true power. The time-domain data is also available for transfer to a PC through the IEEE-488 or RS232C bus when using custom software.

Diagnostic Capability
The AC Source can perform a self test and report any errors. The self test will run until the first error is encountered and terminate. The response to the self test query command will either be the first error encountered or 0 if no error was found. (Self test passed).

Windows Graphical User Interface
A Windows 2000/XP™ compatible Graphical User Interface (GUI) offers a soft front panel interface for operation from a PC. The following functions are available through this GUI program:

  • Steady state output control (all parameters).
  • Create, run, save and print transient programs.
  • Generate and save harmonic waveforms.
  • Generate and save arbitrary waveforms.

i-iX Series II 3KVA - 15KVA AC/DC Power Source with high performance power analyzer
i-iX Series II 3KVA - 15KVA AC/DC Power Source with high performance power analyzer Image

The iX Series II represents a new generation of AC and DC power source that addresses increasing demands on test equipment to perform more functions at a lower cost. By combining a flexible AC/DC power source with a high performance power analyzer, the iX Series II systems are capable of handling complex applications that have traditionally required multiple instruments.

The sleek integrated approach of the iX Series II avoids the cable clutter that is commonly found in AC test systems. The i/iX Series II is rackmountable with a 4U chassis design. All connections are made internally and the need for external digital multimeters, power harmonics analyzer and current shunts or clamps is completely eliminated. Using a state of the art digital signal processor in conjunction with precision high resolution A/D converters, the iX Series II provides more accuracy and resolution than can be found in some dedicated harmonic power analyzers. Since many components in the iX Series II are shared between the AC/DC source and the power analyzer, the total cost of the integrated system is less than the typical cost of a multiple unit system.

For less demanding applications, the Compact iX Series provides similar output and transient capabilities as the iX Series II, as well as basic measurements.

Features And Benefits
Key Features

  • 3000 VA to 15000 VA of AC Output Power

  • IEC 61000-3-2 and IEC 61000-3-3

Easy To Use Controls
Both the iX Series II and i Series II are microprocessor controlled and can be operated from an easy to use front panel keypad. Functions are grouped logically and are directly accessible from the keypad. This eliminates the need to search through various levels of menus and/or soft keys. A large analog control knob can be used to quickly slew output parameters. This knob is controlled by a dynamic rate change algorithm that combines the benefits of precise control over small parameter changes with quick sweeps through the entire range.

Applications
With precise output regulation and accuracy, the iX Series II AC and DC sources address many application areas for AC and DC power testing. The iX also provides a high load current capability, multi or single phase output modes, and built-in power analyzer measurements. Additional features including line distortion simulation (LDS), arbitrary waveform generation, and programmable output impedance address requirements for product quality and regulatory compliance testing.

Product Evaluation and Test
Increasingly, manufacturers of electronic equipment and appliances are required to fully evaluate and test their products over a wide range of input line conditions. The built-in output transient generation and readback measurement capability offers the convenience of an easy to use and integrated test system.

Avionics
With an output frequency range to 1000 Hz, at up to 150 VRMS, the iX Series II is well suited for aerospace applications. Precise frequency control and accurate load regulation are key requirements in these applications. The standard IEEE-488 control interface and SCPI command language provide for easy integration into existing ATE systems. Since the iX Series II can eliminate the need for several additional pieces of test equipment and only occupies 7 inches of rack space (4U), saving both cost and space. Instrument drivers for popular programming environments such as National Instruments LabView, DO-160, ABD-0100, MIL-STD-704A-F, and Boeing 7E73B-0147 are available to speed up system integration.

Regulatory Testing
As governments are moving to enforce product quality standards, regulatory compliance testing is becoming a requirement for a growing number of manufacturers. The iX Series II is designed to meet AC source requirements for use in Euronorm EN 61000 compliance testing. For flicker testing, the programmable output impedance capability of the 3001iX, 5001iX and 15003iX can be used to create the required IEC 725 reference impedance.

Multi-Box Configurations
For high power applications, two or three 5001i/iX chassis can be combined to provide 10 to 15 kVA of single or three phase power.

A 9003iX, 15003iX or 15003i three phase configuration can be ordered with the MODE-iX option. This option allows automatic switching between single or three phase output mode. In single phase mode, all current is available on phase A. The MODE-iX option switches the output from all three 5001i/iX amplifiers to a single output connector. Without the MODE-iX option, 15003i/iX systems are configured for three phase operation.

High Crest Factor
With a crest factor of up to 5:1, the i/iX Series II AC source can drive difficult nonlinear loads with ease. Since many modern products use switching power supplies, they have a tendency to pull high repetitive peak currents. The 5001iX can deliver up to 110 Amps of repetitive peak current (low range) to handle such loads.

Remote Control
Standard IEEE-488 and RS232C remote control interfaces allow programming of all instrument functions from an external computer. The popular SCPI command protocol is used for programming. Drivers for several popular instrumentation programming environments are available to facilitate systems integration of the i/iX Series II.

The Sorensen XEL benchtop power supply is as easy to use as simple analog power supplies but offers the flexibility of advanced digital features. The user interface allows easy control with single-turn knobs including a fine control knob for voltage.

This easy-to-use interface is complemented by V-Span, S-lock and Output Enable functions. V-Span allows the user to set a maximum and minimum value over which the knob control operates. This provides more precise control over the voltage as the knob operates over a narrow range as well as protecting devices under test by limiting the maximum voltage. S-Lock provides an easy method to output a regulated fixed voltage. Output Enable lets the user setup the desired voltage and current levels prior to actually turning on the output. All of these features in a laboratory bench supply are only found in the XEL series.

XHR 1000W DC Bench Power Supply
XHR 1000W DC Bench Power Supply Image

XHR provides 1000 watts of programmable DC power in a compact half-rack package. It is available in nine 1 kW models. Its unique features and size make XHR ideal for OEM applications where high power and wide adjustment of output voltage or current is required, and a compact half-rack configuration is advantageous.

It is stackable with a small foot print, front panel binding post connectors and a low current requirement that allows it to be plugged into a standard 120 VAC, 15 A circuit. State-of-the-art zero voltage or “soft” switching technology virtually eliminates switching transients for high efficiency, low noise and high reliability. XHR is also power-factor-corrected for low current draw (only 11 A at 120 VAC for 1000 watts) and reduced generation of input current harmonics.

Choose from five models for benchtop and OEM applications, where a wide adjustment of output voltage or current is required in a compact package.

The Sorensen XPD utilizes state–of–the–art zero voltage or “soft” switching technology to virtually eliminate switching transients for high efficiency, low noise and high reliability. It is also power factor corrected for low current draw and reduced generation of input current harmonics

XPL 30-125W DC Bench Power Supply
XPL 30-125W DC Bench Power Supply Image

The Sorensen XPL series has been designed to meet the need for compact power supply at a reasonable price. The XPL series provides 30 to 125 watts of programmable, linear DC power. The XPL is a compact, high performance low cost power supply suited for most benchtop applications.

The XPL Series features excellent line and load regulation with low noise and good transient response. The XPL Series is available in a single, dual and triple output. The XPL dual output model has two independent and isolated outputs each with a 0 to 30V, 0 to 2A capability and its own on–off switch. The outputs can be wired in either series or parallel to provide voltages up to 60 volts or currents up to 4 amps. All outputs are instrinsically short circuit proof, and are protected against external voltages and reverse currents. The XPL triple output model has the same features as the dual output model with an additional switchable fixed output of 3.3V and 5V.

XPF 180W - 840W PowerFlex DC Power Supply
XPF 180W - 840W PowerFlex DC Power Supply Image

The Sorensen XPF is a new type of bench power supply designed to meet the need for flexibility in the choice of voltage and current. Typically, the maximum voltage and maximum current are not required simultaneously. The PowerFlexTM design enables higher currents to be generated at lower voltages within an overall power limit envelope. This is achieved by using the latest switch-mode technology.

The XPF60-20D are dual output DC power supplies with two completely independent and isolated outputs. If required, the outputs can be wired in series or parallel to achieve up to double the maximum voltage or double the maximum current. The new XPF60-20S is a single output version of the XPF60-20D providing 60V and 20A within its 420W power envelope.

The XPF Series has advanced digital features while keeping its simple to operate analog controls. The series
also has a remote programming option making the popular XPF perfect for some ATE applications.
The interfaces included: LXI Class C Ethernet, GPIB, USB and RS-232/423.

Electronic Load
SL Series AC and DC Electronic Load
SL Series AC and DC Electronic Load Image

Rackmount/Standalone Models:
SLH Family
Fully programmable, high power AC or DC electronic loads. The 500V models are for PFC testing, power transformers and various other AC or DC power sources. The 300V models are used for testing of UPSs, automatic voltage regulators (AVR), and batteries.

  • High current, 60V DC models for general purpose power supply testing
  • High voltage, AC/DC models are intended for inverter test, Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuit testing (500V) and UPS testing (300V)

 

Modular Models:
SLM Chassis
The SLM chassis are available in a convenient single-bay configuration (see image on the right) for benchtop/desktop applications and a four-bay configuration (see image on the left) for multichannel and ATE requirements. Either chassis is compatible with SLM- and SLD- loads. Each chassis contains non-volatile memory capable of storing up to 150 module setups and nine 16-step sequences for automated, standalone testing. Or for more complex test sequences, the chassis come with GPIB (optional on SLM-1) and RS-232 as standard interfaces.

SLM Family
The SLM family includes 11 models of fully programmable, single input AC or DC modular electronic loads. DC models are offered to test power supplies, battery chargers, battery discharge, power supply transient response and integration into ATE systems. AC models are ideal to test low power inverters.

The DC models support operation in Constant Current, Constant Voltage, Constant Resistance or Constant Power mode as well as a short simulation. Engineers have ultimate control of current waveforms by using either the analog input or CC dynamic mode. An analog input (single input DC models) allows arbitrary current waveforms up to 20kHz with an external 0-10V signal. In dynamic mode, the pulse generator allows fast state switching between two programmed current levels with programmed slew rate and dwell times.

SLD Family
The SLD family offers six models of fully programmable, dual input modular electronic loads. These DC modules are specifically designed for low power, high channel count testing and provide the highest channel density available. (The double wide, dual channel module is seen here, but the single wide, dual channel model is not pictured.)

AMREL eLoads PLA Series 800W to 7.5kW
AMREL eLoads PLA Series 800W to 7.5kW Image

Traditional dc Electronic Load Solutions are bulky and large in size. Most are offered with standard voltage, current and power ratings. In the ATE world, rack space is a highly coveted asset and application demands are constantly diversifying with new technology development. AMREL’s PLA Series of “Air-cooled” dc Electronic eLoads offers the industry’s smallest footprint, the highest power density and current rating, along with the broadest selection of high voltage models on the market. PLA models are capable of being custom-tailored to meet your application requirements.

Features And Benefits

Closed-case Calibration
With the eLoad line, there’s no longer a need to send your electronic load back to the factory for calibration or
remove dozens of screws to reach a potentiometer. Simply follow the AMREL calibration routine from the front panel and you should be back up and running in a very short period of time (some electronic test equipment needed). This will virtually eliminate downtime and eradicate the annual cost associated with shipping your eLoad back to the factory for calibration.

Individual FET Protection
To ensure the reliability of the PLA Series, AMREL’s design includes individual FET protection. A programmable
electronic load may contain many FETs in parallel, which can create a cascading failure if one of them was to short
out. AMREL’s eLoad programmable electronic load design isolates failures so other components will not be affected
or stressed, increasing the system’s level of protection against catastrophic failure. With individual FET protection,
the MTTR is reduced and the electronic load quickly returns to full operation.

Ultra-low Voltage Operation
The PLA design allows the programmable electronic load to operate at voltage levels approaching .1V. They will
typically dissipate full rated current below 1% of their maximum rated voltage. For example, a 60V unit designed
to dissipate1500A will allow the user to operate at .6V and still dissipate the full amount.

PV Simulator
ETS TerraSAS Standalone TerraSAS Photovoltaic Simulator
ETS TerraSAS Standalone TerraSAS Photovoltaic Simulator Image

For microgrids, energy storage, and inverter test applications, the TerraSAS™ series photovoltaic (PV) simulators are specifically designed to emulate the dynamic electrical behavior of a terrestrial PV solar array. They offer low output capacitance and high closed loop bandwidth to keep up with the advanced Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithms used in today’s grid-tied inverters. The Embedded TerraSAS (ETS) is a high performance solution in a small form factor that combines an agile power supply with an innovative I-V curve generator in a single standalone unit.

• ETS 600 / 1000: For isolated and non-isolated string inverters up to 1000Vdc Voc.

• ETS 60 / 80 / 150: For use with micro-inverters or DC optimizers up to 150Vdc Voc.

Application
Many solar inverters generate AC ripple on their DC input, which is connected to the photovoltaic array. For single phase inverters, the frequency of this ripple is twice the line frequency (120 Hz for US models). The simulator’s power supplies must not suppress this ripple as a function of their regulation loop. An increasing number of inverters (and virtually all micro-inverters) accurately measure amplitude and phase of the ripple voltage and current to quickly track the MPP of the array. This approach allows tracking the MPP at a much higher speed when compared to conventional dithering techniques (also called perturbate-and-observe). Faster tracking of the MPP results in a much higher overall efficiency in cloudy conditions, where the irradiance is constantly changing. It is likely that all solar inverters will use this approach in the near future, since end users are very sensitive to the overall efficiency of their solar energy installations. To satisfy this requirement, the PV simulator must be capable of reproducing the voltage / current behavior of a solar array at the ripple frequency. Most standard switching power supplies employ very large output capacitors and inductors in their output circuits and are unable to deliver the required performance – regardless of the response speed of the I-V curve controller. The Elgar TerraSAS line of PV simulators are based on high speed versions of our standard products, where output capacitors and other speed-limiting components have been adjusted. This results in a speed improvement of 10 times or better. Proprietary features built into the PV controller hardware and firmware, combined with our high speed power supplies, deliver the required performance. This technology was extensively tested on micro-inverters and is ready to test the next generation of inverters. The required performance is delivered by high speed switching power supplies and advanced Digital Signal Processing techniques. In some conditions traditional DC power sources using IGBT technology do not meet MPPT response speed requirements, depending on the MPPT principles. Our power supplies use Power MOSFETs, which typically switch ten times as fast as the most recent IGBTs. Higher switching frequency translates to smaller output capacitors and inductors – which is the key to a successful high speed power supply design.

Scalability
Power supplies are available in 850W, 5kW, 10kW, and 15KW increments. The 80V units are available in two power levels: 1200W for microinverters and 850W for the latest generation microinverters and DC power optimizers. The bandwidth on the 850W version has been improved to 30kHz by adding a linear regulation output stage. 600V and 1000V units are available in 5kW, 10kW, and 15kW versions depending on Isc requirements. All versions are easily connected in parallel to scale output power up to handle microinverters, string inverters, and even utility scale inverters. Many models can also be connected in series to handle higher voltage tests. Please refer to the connection diagrams located in the User Manual and follow appropriate wiring codes before connecting ETS PV simulators in series or paralle.

AC Power Source
Available in a choice of power levels ranging from 1250 VA to > 45,000 VA, the CTS Systems covers the complete range of single and three phase products that require testing to conform with existing and pending IEC standards. All iX Series AC sources meet IEC requirements for low voltage distortion and offer arbitrary waveform generation, precision measurements, and waveform analysis capabilities. Actual
AC Source voltage distortion is measured in real-time during the harmonics test and any distortion that could affect the test results is clearly indicated.

All iX Series based CTS systems support full compliance testing for several IEC 61000-4 AC immunity standards as well (certain options may be required, see ordering information for details).

Direct PC Data Acquisition
A high-speed digital signal processor based data acquisition system is used to implement the required IEC compliance measurement system. Direct access to the PC bus ensures a much higher data throughput capability than typically found in single box IEC test systems that use either the IEEE-488 instrumentation, USB, LXI or RS-232 bus to communicate between the analysis instrument and the PC.

This high-speed acquisition system architecture stores raw data to the hard drive and offers several features. It not only possesses the ability to support future versions of test standards by merely installing new PC software but it also greatly reduces the risk of product obscolescence as test standards evolve. Furthermore, since the data is streamed to hard disk in real-time, a complete data record is created each time which may be used for audit purposes, data replay and further analysis or to prove compliance to all the measurement requirements specified in the test standard.

A special signal conditioning and isolation unit is used to provide quick and easy connection between the AC source output and the Equipment Under Test. This unit provides the required isolation, signal conditioning and anti-alias filtering for the measurement system. The equipment under test can be plugged in the front panel mounted European style outlet (single phase systems only), or wired to a rear panel mounted terminal block.

Harmonics Analyzer
A key part of the CTS system is the IEC compliant power analyzer which provides detailed information on both voltage and current. Measurements of both harmonics and interharmonics are made in real-time with no measurement gaps to fully conform to the latest revision of the IEC 61000-4-7 test standard. AC source voltage and EUT power are
monitored continuously during the entire test. Voltage distortion and current harmonic data is checked against IEC class limits for pass or fail detection. Comprehensive test reports can be generated easily.

Test limits are retained in a password protected database and can be updated if needed in the future without the need to change software. Other software changes as a result of changing IEC harmonics standard can be accomplished by simply installing new PC software. No harmonics testing software resides in system firmware which would require more costly field upgrades.

Flicker Reference Impedance
An IEC61000-4-15 compliant flicker meter is an integral part of the CTS software. The required IEC 60725 compliant reference impedance is implemented in the iX Series AC Source using programmable output impedance. Programmable impedance offers improved accuracy compared to a lumped reference impedance and the ability to support different national standards without the need to switch out lumped reference impedance hardware. A good example is testing for compliance with the Japanese harmonics and flicker standard, which requires different impedance values to be programmed as compared to the European test standard.

Optionally, a lumped impedance compliant with IEC 60725 or the Z-test specification of IEC61000-3-3 can be ordered for single or three phase iX Series based CTS systems. For three phase CTS systems, a lumped impedance option is recommended. The software can be configured to use either impedance type during flicker testing.

The Power Analyzer and Conditioning System unit provides the required interface between the AC source, the Equipment Under Test and the PC. A high current (75 Arms) version, PACS-3-75, is supplied with MX-CTS systems.

MX Compliance Test System Harmonics and Flicker testing of high power AC products
MX Compliance Test System Harmonics and Flicker testing of high power AC products Image

A growing number of electronic products manufactured today have to meet international regulatory requirements for emissions and immunity. This is particularly true for products sold in the European community as well as a growing list of countries in the Far East. The California Instruments MXCTS System provides a cost-effective test solution aimed at verifying higher power product compliance to a number of AC and DC related harmonized test standards.

The MXCTS system offers many of the same features and capabilities of the California Instruments CTS Series product line already in use at many EMC labs around the world.

NPL Certified Compliance The MXCTS System is based on the same technology deployed in the California Instruments CTS series products. The CTS series has been certified
by the National Physics Laboratory (NPL) in the United Kingdom for full compliance with the IEC Harmonics and Flicker standards. The NPL is an independent test laboratory and a recognized authority on AC calibration.

Key Features

  • Direct PC bus access data acquisition system provides the required sampling rate and resolution to meet IEC 61000-4-7 measurement requirements and supports high speed data transfers, unlike competing IEC test systems
    which provide only limited throughput using IEEE-488.
  • PC based Harmonic and Flicker test software provides real-time full color data display updates and continuous PASS/FAIL monitoring.
  • Automatic calculation of the maximum permissible system impedance Zsys, using the Zref and measured Flicker parameters, as required per
    EN/IEC 61000-3-11.
  • Simple user operation under Windows provides IEC test setup, data analysis, display and MS Word test reports.
  • High resolution, no gap acquisition data storage to ensure that all data can be streamed to disk (in ASCII format if needed) for later review and replay of actual test.
  • Single Step and Fast playback mode of test results

AC Power Source
The MXCTS System was designed to be used in conjunction with the MX45- 3Pi AC and DC power source. The MX45-3Pi provides up to 62.5 ARMS per phase for high power harmonics and Flicker testing. All MX45-3Pi Series AC sources offer arbitrary waveform generation, precision measurements, and waveform analysis capabilities. Refer to the
MX Series data sheet for detailed information on the MX Series’ capabilities and features.
The MX45-3Pi not only supports high power harmonics and flicker emissions test but can also be used for a range of IEC 61000-4 AC immunity standards (certain options may be required, see ordering information for details).

Direct PC Data Acquisition
A high speed digital signal processor based data acquisition system is used to implement the required IEC compliance measurement system. Direct access to the PC bus ensures a much higher data throughput capability than typically found in single box IEC test systems that use the IEEE- 488 instrumentation bus to communicate with the PC.

This architecture offers several advantages, not the least of which is the ability to support future versions of test standards by merely installing new PC software. This greatly reduces the risk of product obsolescence as test standards evolve. Furthermore,
since the data is streamed to hard disk in real-time, a complete data record is created each time, which may be used for audit purposes, further analysis or to prove compliance to the test standard.

A special signal conditioning and isolation unit (PACS-3-75) is used to provide quick and easy connection between the AC source output and the Equipment Under Test. This unit provides the required isolation, signal conditioning and anti-alias filtering for the measurement system. The equipment under test is wired to a rear panel mounted terminal block.

Harmonics Analyzer
A key part of the MXCTS system is the IEC compliant power analyzer which provides detailed information on both voltage and current. Measurements of both harmonics and interharmonics are made in real-time with no measurement gaps to fully conform to the latest revision of the IEC 61000-4-7 test standard. AC source voltage and EUT power are monitored continuously during the entire test. Voltage distortion and current harmonic data is checked against IEC class limits for pass or fail detection. Comprehensive test reports can be generated easily.

Test limits are retained in a password protected database and can be updated if needed in the future without the need to change software. Other software changes as a result of changing IEC harmonics standards can be accomplished by simply installing new PC software. No harmonics testing software resides

Flicker Reference Impedance
An IEC 868 compliant Flicker meter is an integral part of the -CTSM system.
The IEC 725 required reference impedance is implemented using a lumped impedance capable of handling 75 A RMS per phase. Due to the high amount of dissipation that occurs at these power levels, the OMNI-3-75 is housed in a 43” cabinet. This same cabinet is used to
mount the PACS-3-75 unit. The lumped impedance is designed for testing to the IEC 61000-3-11 Flicker standard.

For IEC 61000-3-3 low power Flicker testing (< 16 ARMS), the OMNI- 3-37MX is used instead mounted in a similar 43” cabinet.(-CTSL system).

A combination of both is available on the -CTSMXHL system. In this case, only one lumped impedance is in the circuit at any one time and a quick connect scheme is used to allow switching between the two lumped impedances (OMNI-3-37MX for -3-3 and
OMNI-3-75 for -3-11).

The Power Analyzer and Conditioning System unit provides the required interface between the MX AC source, the Equipment Under Test and the PC.

The Best Power Inverters on the Market

Analytic Systems produces two types of inverters converting DC to AC: IPS and IVS Puresine Series

Both of these Inverters are built to last using the most durable materials available, and also feature:

  • The ability to run 120 or 220 volt AC equipment trouble-free from 12, 24, 32, 36, 48 or 72V DC batteries in any environment where standard AC power is not available
  • Powerful MosFet transistors, coupled with Analytic Systems’ sensitive control circuitry to provide reliable operation in the most demanding environments
  • Heavy input filtering to ensure no electrical noise will be generated to interfere with autopilots, radios, or other devices sharing the same batteries.
  • A transformer-type output to protect against electrical ‘noise’; also gives excellent filtering of the AC waveform to ensure trouble-free operation of AC equipment
  • An ON-OFF switch that illuminates when AC power is present, providing positive indication of proper operation

The power our IPS Series Inverters produce is cleaner and has less fluctuation than household AC, learn more about our IPS, or IVS PureSine Series inverters in our product catalogue.

 

NEW! Waterproof IPS67 Protected Sealed Inverter

Sealed Inverter

We are pleased to announce  the SPS300 series inverters, which are IP67 rated waterproof pure sine wave inverters designed for rugged operating conditions where water and dust protection are required.

Their waterproof construction also makes them ideal for locations where C1D2 certification is required.

Crystal controlled for precise frequencies of either 50 or 60 Hz, the powerful high frequency MosFet switching network produces a low voltage AC waveform that is stepped up to either 110 or 220 VAC by a Toroidal or Iron Core transformer. This technique produces a very clean AC waveform and reduces EMI to lower levels than achievable with
other methods.
The billet CNC machined enclosure features cooling fins designed in cooperation with Simon Fraser University for optimal heat dissipation.
