California Instruments BPS 75 Features
- High Power AC Source- Programmable AC power for frequency conversion and product test applications.
- Expandable Power Levels- Available output power of 30, 45, 75 and 90 kVA per unit and multi-unit configurations for power requirements up to 180 kVA and above.
- Remote Control- Standard RS232, USB and IEEE-488 (GPIB) and optional LAN interfaces are available for automated test applications.
The BPS is capable of delivering 30, 45, 75, 90, 150 or 180kVA of AC power. The 30 and 45kVA models come as dedicated single or three phase output while the 75, 90, 150 and 180kVA models are dedicated three phase. For higher power requirements, simply parallel the BPS in multi-cabinet configuration. Multi cabinet systems always operate in three phase output mode commonly found in power systems.
Choice of voltage ranges:
Standard voltage ranges are 150V L-N (259V L-L) and 300V (519V L-L) and are direct coupled output. For applications requiring more than 300V L-N (or 519V L-L), the optional -HV output transformer provides a third additional 400V L-N and 693 V L-L output range which is internal to the AC chassis. No external magnetics modules are required.
BPS Series - AC Transient Generation:
The BPS Series controller has a powerful AC transient generation system that allows complex sequences of voltage and frequency to be generated. This further enhances the BPS’s capability to simulate AC line conditions and disturbances. Transient generation is controlled independently yet time synchronized on all three phases. Accurate phase angle control and synchronized transient list execution provide unparalleled accuracy in positioning AC output events.
High Crest Factor:
With a crest factor of up to 4.5, the BPS Series AC source can drive difficult nonlinear loads with ease. Since many modern products use switching power supplies, they have a tendency to pull high repetitive peak currents.
