PSI 9000 2U and 3U DC Sources
User and process profiles can be edited, saved and archived so that the reproducibility of a test or other application is improved. In Addition, a single 2U chassis houses up to 3kW of DC power and can be paralleled up to 30kW. Each chassis features a controller which allows the flexibility of separating into individual sources or paralleling for high power applications.
Integrated Function Generator
The FPGA based control circuit provides additional features such as a function generator using a table based regulation circuit for the simulation of non-linear internal resistances.
Complex Sequence Generator
By linking together a number of differently configured sequences, complex progressions can be created. Smart configuration of the arbitrary generator can be used to match triangular, sine, rectangular or trapezoidal wave functions and thus, e.g. a sequence of rectangular waves with differing amplitudes or duty cycles can be produced.
For the implementation of the LabView IDE Intepro offers ready-to-use components (VIs) to be used with the Ethernet interface. Other IDEs and interfaces are supported by documentation within the communication protocol.
Solar Array Simulation
The PSI is an ideal solution for simulating static or dynamic irradiance levels of solar array. The high accuracy irradiance curve is based on 16,400 data points and adjustable in 1% increments. Isc, Uoc, MPP and Impp are user programmable.
Fuel Cell Simulation
An embedded Fuel Cell table function is used to simulate the characteristics of voltage and current of a fuel cell. Simply define slope points and the data is automatically calculated then transferred to the function generator and output from the DC source.
The large LCD touch panel offers a modern and intuitive user interface for controlling the four operating modes, Constant Voltage (CV), Constant Current (CC), Constant Power (CP) and Constant Resistance (CR). Response times for the control via analog or digital interfaces by the DSP controlled hardware are among the fastest in the industry. In parallel operation of multiple devices, a master-slave bus is used to connect the chassis to create high power system where the actual values are totaled and the set values distributed.
An Internal resistance control provides a means to virtually simulate an internal resistance (Programmable Impedance) which is in series to the voltage source and thus also in series to the load. According to Ohm’s Law, this causes a voltage drop, which will result in a difference between adjusted output voltage and the actual output voltage.
