Battery simulator for testing satellite power supplies
The battery simulator is used for testing satellite power supplies and is used in combination with a Solar Array Simulator and load systems (consumer simulation) for the validation and commissioning of satellite power supplies. Loads and power supplies in the battery simulator are operated in combination to represent a 2-square function and to simulate both charging and discharging of the battery.
The system has a high electrical output and can supply currents of up to 400A in the voltage range up to approx. 100V.
The system is controlled and programmed via Ethernet and has interconnectable safety circuits to safeguard operator safety.
