Conquering the Multi-Kilowatt Source/Sink Test Challenge

Application Notes

Satellites, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), uninterruptable power supplies (UPSs), alternate energy power sources, and several other modern power systems rely on bidirectional and regenerative energy systems and devices. Many of these bidirectional energy systems and devices operate at multi-kilowatt power levels. Accordingly, the development and manufacturing of these systems and devices dictate having the ability to source-sink at kilowatt and higher power levels, which is a formidable challenge for test engineers.

The most common approach is to use a separate DC source and electronic load for sourcing and sinking. However, this leads to several issues and compromises in practice because the sourcing and sinking are independent. Keysight APS N6900/N7900 DC power supplies overcome all the challenges of creating a high-power source-sink test solution. An integrated solution provides the optimum performance, freeing up test resources to tackle other challenges needing conquering! Read more.
