Exploring PV Inverter Test System

PV Inverter Test System

Chroma C8000

  • Open architecture software platform
  • Support instrument with GPIB/RS-232 or RS-485/I2C/CAN BUS interfaces
  • User editable test item, test program, & report format

Chroma 8000 uses a unique test command optimization technology to prevent repeating control commands from being sent to the system hardware devices. This improves the system test speed dramatically and makes the Chroma 8000, which uses open software architecture, highly efficient as a closed or optimized auto test system. With powerful report, statistic and management functions, Chroma 8000 is able to provide complete tools to generate various test documents and perform system administration.

Solar Energy System Device testing

UL 1741-SA, and IEEE 1547 are the 2 most common Standards for certification of PV Inverters. DC Input to the PV Inverter testing requires simulation of Solar Array power. Chroma's Family of 62000H-S DC power supplies have the internal control and programmability for Solar Array Simulation. Verification and Certification testing includes:

  • Anti-islanding
  • Low/High Voltage Ride Through
  • Low/High-Frequency Ride Through
  • Must Trip Test
  • Ramp Rate (Normal & Soft-Start)
  • Specified Power Factor
  • Volt/VarMode
  • Frequency Watt
  • Volt Watt

Chroma 8000 PV Inverter Automatic Test Application

This auto test system uses the unique test command optimization technology to prevent the repeating control commands from sending to the system hardware devices. This improves the system test speed dramatically and makes Chroma 8000, which uses open software architecture, highly efficient as a close or optimized auto test system.

Webinar: Testing PV Inverters and Solar Energy System Devices

Our test instrumentation provides means to further the development, reliability, and validation of grid-tied, off-grid, and hybrid solar PV inverters that will eventually be used in commercial and household applications for years to come. This seminar focuses on functional testing of the PV inverter and highlights solar panel/array and energy storage systems test.
