SKU: AZX Series Category:

Introducing the Pacific Power AZX Series of Regenerative AC and DC Power Sources

The AZX Series consists of a range of High Power Switching AC, DC and AC+DC capable Power Sources with regenerative capability to support both sourcing and sinking of current and power. Energy recovery to the grid enables testing of products using only a fraction of the required grid power when compared to using non-regenerative power sources, saving cost.  The AZX also supports testing of grid-teid products like wind and solar inverters, energy storage systems (ESS) and electric Vehicle to Grid (V2G) and Vehicle to Home discharge systems.

Covering a power range from 30 kVA to 200 kVA and higher if needed. All AZX models offer singlesplit and three phase output configurations. The AZX is a state-of-the-art design using Silicon Carbide (SiC) power devices for enhanced performance.

Great emphasis has been placed on energy efficiency, ease of installation, and maximum power. Control and operational features provide a high degree of application versatility and ease of use for the test engineer. Applications range from simple, manually controlled frequency conversion to IEC power line  emission and immunity testing and with sophisticated transient simulation.  For defense and aviation applications, the AZX supports a fundamental frequency range up to 1000 Hz and dual AC voltage ranges of 0~225Vac and 0~440Vac (L-N) respectively and to support most avionics compliance test standards. In DC mode, voltage ranges are 0~335Vdc and 0~650Vdc.

While analog inputs and outputs are standard on all AZX modes, for real-time Power Hardware in the Loop (HIL) Grid simulation applications, the AZX offers an optional high speed set of analog inputs and outputs with fast output response (Option -H).
