Regenerative Grid Simulator for the testing of EV Chargers, V2G, grid-tied inverters, & critical power systems.
IRVINE, Calif. - Aug. 2, 2016 - PRLog -- NH Research, Inc. (NHR) has released new advanced output control features, improved manual control interface, and comprehensive drivers for the popular Model 9410 Regenerative Grid Simulator. These new control features provide intuitive controls for simulating any abnormal AC-grid condition including: voltage harmonics, sags and swells, sub-cycle, full-cycle, and multi-cycle disturbances. It has never been easier for R&D to validate product designs or for manufacturing teams to ensure functional and regulatory compliance with EN 61000-x, IEEE 1547, UL 1741, CA Rule-21, LVRT, and similar emerging testing standards. Improvements have also been made to permit intuitive access to these new features through the full-featured manual control panels as well as through the fully-documented LabVIEW Compliant & IVI-C / IVI-COM compliant drivers.
The Model 9410 Regenerative Grid Simulator (http://nhresearch.com/landing/grid-simulation/) is a full featured, 4-quadrant, regenerative, rack-mountable, 12-kW grid simulator in only 15 ¾" (9U). Standard models include three (3) fully programmable channels allowing for any combination of DC as well as 1Φ, 2Φ, 3Φ AC outputs making it right-sized for testing Level 1 and Level 2 EV Chargers, EVSE systems, as well as V2G. When higher power is required. The modular design permits expansion in 12-kW increments meeting the needs for grid-tied solar inverters, ESS systems, exporting critical power systems (UPS), and similar AC grid-connected devices.
NHR will be exhibiting the Model 9410 Regenerative Grid Simulator along with NHR's 9200 Series DC Regenerative Test System (which is ideal for battery testing battery, simulating the DC-links, and emulating batteries) at The Battery Show (Novi, MI) from Sept. 13th-15th, 2016 in booth 1525.
