Fundamentals of Test Equipment: Selecting the right equipment for the right job

Tuesday, September 25
3:25 PM - 3:50 PM
Location: 203AB

NHR is often asked if a grid-simulator can “load” an inverter output. All too often we find customers which are requesting a “Load” or “Source” based on power flow and not based on the operating mode (current/voltage) control. This leads to lots of confusion especially when operating with bi-directional devices like grid-connected energy storage systems (ESS) where power may flow in one direction for a portion of time and flows in the other direction at other times. While it is true that the ESS would either draw or supply power, does so with a current operating mode. In this case, the test equipment being selected should operate with the other operating mode (Voltage). This presentation will explain this proposed definition and provide a number of key factors should be considered when selecting test equipment ensuring the right tools (however it is described) is always acquired
