With today’s push to be increasingly mobile, batteries have become a huge part of our daily lives. Batteries are required to power everything from security cameras to computers, drones and even buses. The battery used in these applications require lots of testing during development and production to ensure they will meet all the demands of the real world. Traditionally the charging of a battery would be done using a programmable DC power supply, while the discharging would be done with an electronic or resistive load. Today the bidirectional, regenerative power supply can perform both tests, which not only saves capital and valuable rack space, but can regenerative the energy output from a discharging battery back into the local grid.
The EPS PSB Series not only performs both functions, as it is both a DC source and a regenerative electronic load, but it can transition seamlessly between each function. The energy ‘sinked’ into the PSB from a discharging battery can then be put back into the local grid saving both energy and heating costs for the testing facility. EPS’s DC power supply and load solutions come standard with pre-installed battery test software and routines to assist you in your battery test requirements, both lithium-ion and lead-acid.
the equipment used to test advanced technology must also be advanced, flexible, and responsive. For these reasons, the PSB bidirectional programmable DC power supply series by EPS is a perfect fit for advanced battery test.
The PSB bidirectional supply can seamlessly switch between providing power to charge the battery and controlling the discharge of the battery. The built-in battery charge, static discharge and dynamic test functions are included with PSB, PSI, EL and ELR product series. EPS can help with specifying just the right equipment and some basic guidance and considerations on how to build a robust battery test system to ensure the safety and proper functioning of all test equipment and batteries under test.
EPS has developed algorithms to simulate batteries or a set of battery cells at a very specific state of charge (SOC) in a few minutes.
