B&K Precision (Yorba Linda, CA) introduced three new models of high power programmable DC power supplies, models PVS10005, PVS60085, and PVS60085MR. The new PVS Series delivers output power up to 5.1 kW with excellent regulation, low noise, and fast transient response times. All models provide a unique built-in solar array simulator (SAS) function to generate photovoltaic I-V curves. Offering high power density in a compact 2U form factor, these DC power supplies are especially suitable for high voltage testing up to 1000 V, motor inverter testing, and solar array testing applications. Other features include:
- SAS software that allows for a variety of I-V curve input parameters (Voc/Isc/Vmp/Imp/FF/FFv/FFi).
- User-definable irradiance profiles and a custom 1024-point voltage and current table.
- Multi-ranging operation up to 3 kW for model PVS60085MR.
- Overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), overpower (OPP), and overtemperature (OTP) protection.
