AMETEK Programmable Power has released its TerraSAS single-box PV simulator, which is designed for testing residential and commercial solar inverters.
The simulator will be available as a single-channel 3U 10 kW system, the company says. Shipments are scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2012.
‘Our goal is to provide a standalone PV simulator for the production testing of PV inverters that offers the same precision multi-power-point tracking capabilities as our successful TerraSAS solutions. This approach ensures the accuracy and validity of final test data of the PV inverters,’ says Dan Donati, vice president of AMETEK Programmable Power.
