Ready-to-use and configurable power converter test benches
These bundles offer turn-key solutions for research applications, supporting the rapid prototyping of even the most advanced converter control algorithms. They guarantee a neat – and safe – implementation of numerous applications, with no sacrifices on flexibility. Bundles are furthermore customizable so that they can be adapted to specific needs.
The power electronics bundle is a general purpose test bench. It includes a programmable controller and a selection of half-bridge power modules, LC filters, and sensors to build various topologies.
Phase-leg modules, inductors, and capacitors are safely enclosed in racks to prevent access to live parts. Nevertheless, all power terminals are individually accessible through standard 4mm safety connectors. For this reason, rewiring the topology of the system is simple.
Unlike the teaching kits, the equipment is rack-mounted in a cabinet with wheels. Thus, it can be easily moved around in a laboratory. The extra space at the bottom of the cabinet provides flexibility for the future and allows mounting more equipment if needed.
- NPC modules (PEN8018) for three-level converters
- Phase-leg modules (PEB4050) for increased power
- PHIL configuration (power hardware in the loop)
