Maximize the performance of your inverter

Keysight’s photovoltaic (PV) simulator includes the hardware and software to test a single maximum power point tracking (MPPT) inverter accurately. Test PV voltages up to 2000 V and 30 A with a single supply. DG9100 Series software licenses are available to test a string inverter with 4-, 8-, or 12-MPPT channels. Most string inverter solutions test one MPPT channel at a time — leading to test inaccuracies. Keysight's advanced PV inverter software tests up to 12 MPPT channels simultaneously.

  • Output up to 2000 V and 20 kW in a 3U package
  • Test up to 200 kW channels with parallel units
  • Select built-in curves, or create a custom table using up to 1024 points
  • DG9000 Series software simplifies single and multi-MPPT inverter tests
  • Use as a standard 20 kW autoranging supply for DC sourcing
  • Connectivity includes LAN (LXI Core), USB, and GPIB

Advanced PV Inverter Test Software

Whether your inverter has one or twelve MPPT channels, Keysight's string Inverter test solution can help you go beyond current test standards to maximize performance. Keysight's PV solution enables you to optimize maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms and devices. With the DG9000 Series software, you can simultaneously test multiple MPPT channels.
