User friendly application software with pre-configured test patterns
Possibility of integrating into a complete SAS simulation and test system
Galvanic isolation available as an option without derating the simulator port data
Three different operation modes:
a) Programmable Grid Simulator
b) Remote operated 4Q AC voltage amplifier
c) Electronic AC-load featuring programmable RLC load impedance

By combining Regatron DC power supplies with a grid simulator, a complete model of a Smart Grid can be built up. Thus, intensive studies on the dynamic behaviour of grids are made possible.
Within such a system, TopCon unidirectional DC power sources take over the role of “additive” energy sources like wind-, solar-, hydro- and biological power generators as also of fuel cells and on. TopCon bidirectional DC power sources are best suited for the role of electrical power storage elements as also as simulators for power consumption.
As a third element, the grid tied path may be equipped with TC.ACS 4-quadrant Grid Simulator, which is able to simulate various public grid situations up to the ultimate situation of a so-called “Islanding Situation”.

High Power Simulators & AC and DC Supplies

REGATRON has researched, developed and sold programmable power supplies and power electronics for 50 years. Regatron products bear the Swiss characteristics of quality, accurateness and creativity.

REGATRON was first on the world market introducing all-digital fully programmable electrical Power Supplies and has attended the market since many decades very closely. The product portfolio therefore is well matched to the market’s requirements and offers among other features one prominent quality: The modular power topology.

Ingenious data link techniques allow not only to operate individual units in parallel in order to extend the power system up to MW levels, but even mixed-mode of series connected units in parallel arrays and vice-versa is possible. By this, a maximum flexibility with respect to changing requirements and future expansion is given.


REGATRON Steps Ahead with a Multifunctional HMI for TC.ACS Grid Simulator Systems
Innovative touch-screen technology offers you the entire grid simulation data on screen at a glance. It has never been easier to keep track.
