Pacific Power Source, a provider of AC and DC power test solutions, has launched its Regenerative product line, which includes the All-in-1 AGX Regenerative AC/DC Source, 2-in-1 RGS Regenerative Grid Simulator and RLS Regenerative Load Simulator.

These bidirectional sources and loads emulate real-world power flows that are ideal for testing the utility grid, electric vehicle (EV) chargers, vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-home (V2H), solar PV/grid-tied inverters, home energy storage systems, avionics power converters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), power distribution units (PDUs) and more.

Herman Van Eijkelenburg, director of marketing at Pacific Power Source, says: “Our new line of regenerative test solutions offers the highest level of flexibility, performance and intelligence. These test systems integrate a high-tech 4-Quadrant design in silicon carbide (SiC) technology to support superior voltage range, current and power specifications to enhance performance.

“Compact, powerful, versatile and easy to use, our mission is to innovate how you test with smart power to make it simpler, safer, more productive and sustainable.”

The SmartRegen products are more than 90% energy efficient and have a high power density, with up to 21 kVA in a single 4U chassis, saving cost and space. Modular by design, the rackable series can scale up to 168 kVA power in a 19 in cabinet and can be paralleled up to 252 kVA.

Simultaneous AC and DC operation of modes per phase, and the automatic switching of output modes gives test engineers a unique capability and the highest degree of flexibility. Pacific Power Source’s embedded proprietary SmartSource Suite remote-control platform provides advanced real-time control and analysis.

The AGX Regenerative 4 Quadrant AC/DC Source is an all-in-one test solution that can address a wide range of test applications and markets. The multi-functional test system can be used as a fully programmable AC/DC power source, current source and electronic load, featuring AC, DC and AC+DC output capability, and an extended frequency range up to 3000 Hz.

The RGS Regenerative Grid Simulator is a next-generation, 2-in-1 grid simulator, designed for the testing and verification of all grid-tied applications. It can emulate almost any grid condition.

The RLS Series Regenerative Load Simulator is a four-quadrant AC and DC electronic load, designed for testing any AC and DC load applications. The RLS features several AC and DC emulation modes, and provides flexible configurations of single, split and three-phase operation, and steady-state or transient execution.
