IMG-PSTE

Ametek Power Special Test Equipment (PSTE)

sku Product SKU:  AME-PSTE

The Elgar Power Special Test Equipment (PSTE) provides programmable DC power, and programmable loading, to the electrical systems of satellites for system functional testing.

There are several key benefits of the PSTE. First, it is a complete turnkey system that is capable of operating locally through a simple GUI interface or remotely via a host computer as a single Ethernet address. The spacecraft engineer who defines the spacecraft power bus limits, cabling scheme, mode simultaneity matrix, and system behavior based upon limit conditions implements the real intelligence of the system. From this definition, operating procedures can be generated to allow spacecraft technicians to operate the system, system protections are implemented that perform cable detection and mode verification, automated spacecraft fixture identification and related mode capability, and more.

Second, the PSTE is intended to negate the need for purchasing new power test equipment with each new spacecraft. With a review of current and future needs and industry trends, power resources can be sized to provide the optimal blend of flexibility and price.

The system also monitors and provides protection for the satellite electrical power systems against any damage by programming error or by system failure.

The following resources are available in the system pictured on the cover. In most cases, the hardware resources can be scaled to meet the customer's individual requirements.

AC Isolation transformers

  • 75KVA power rating; Transform 480VAC 3phase Delta to 208VAC 3 phase Wye


Main Power Rack

  • Five 10KW power channels; 150VDC at 67A each
  • One 5KW load channel; 3-450V, 0-150A constant current
  • Eight programmable strip chart recorder outputs


Solar Array Simulator

  • 64 Channels with 110V Voc and 450W each


Electronic Load Rack

  • Three 5KW load channel; 3-450V, 0-150A constant current


Remote User Interface

  • Ruggedized Portable PC with operator interface software


System Verification test Fixture

  • Customized for individual spacecraft I/O to allow convenient, manual verification of power setup.


Hardware Overview

In this section, the overall system is first represented by a simplified block diagram along with a general discussion of the function of each equipment rack. After which, each rack of equipment is represented by its own block diagram. Each rack block diagram is supported by a discussion of the equipment in the rack.

Either the Remote User Interface (RUI) or the Remote Operating System (ROS) is the source of control, or Computer in Charge (CIC), at any given time, at the operator's discretion. The ROS is supplied by the user. The CIC communicates directly with the system controller in the MPR (MPR controller), and the entire system is controlled via the MPR Controller.

Diagnostics and Troubleshooting can be accomplished directly from the MPR controller. The Main Power Rack (MPR) provides main bus power for tests from up to five internal power sources. The Solar Array Simulator (SAS) provides solar panel simulation power. The Spacecraft Protection Unit (SPU) further protects the spacecraft from damage in case of failure of the built-in OVP/OIP protection of the rest of the PSTE system. For electrical system loading tests, the Electronic Load Rack (ELR) provides three programmable Electronic Load Units (ELU). The MPR contains an ELU that can be used when only one ELU is required.

IMG-BSS

Ametek Battery Sting Simulator (BBS)

sku Product SKU:  AME-BSS

The Elgar Battery String Simulators (BSS) provide safe, reliable battery power for spacecraft testing. The broad range of features available ensures simulation capabilities for more than just two terminal power. It's the ideal solution for complete integrated system testing, not just battery elimination.

The BSS behavior is determined by a charge table, in spreadsheet format, specific for a battery topology and various battery conditions. Many charge tables can be stored on the computer hard drive for easy retrieval.

The BSS operates in two modes, static and dynamic. In the static mode, when a state-of-charge value is entered, the BSS will instantly produce the terminal voltage corresponding to that state-of-charge. Because of this programmable flexibility, time consuming discharge cycles of flight test batteries are eliminated. In the dynamic mode, once a state-of- charge start point is entered, the BSS will monitor the charge and discharge energies being impressed on the "battery" and modify the terminal voltage accordingly.

Single or dual battery pack simulator versions are available with discharge currents of up to 150A and charge currents of up to 50A per battery. In addition, optional sensor simulators (including thermistor, pressure transducer, and heater loads outputs) allow closed loop input to the Spacecraft Power Regulator for true battery emulation. As with the SAS systems, each Battery Simulator System is a fully integrated, turn-key system using a Windows Graphical User Interface and hardware control software. This control is accomplished via a standard ethernet or optional GPIB interface using standard SCPI format commands.

IMG-SAS

Ametek Solar Array Simulator (SAS)

sku Product SKU:  AME-SAS

A spacecraft solar array is subjected to large temperature excursions, varying insolation (the amount of sunlight falling on the array), mechanical changes and aging, which substantially effect both its short and long term performance. In order to test the spacecraft's power environment, a cost-effective solution for ground based testing is to utilize a solar array simulator.

The Elgar SAS system reproduces all possible solar array outputs, based on the wide variety of input conditions that an array faces, including orbital rotation, spin, axis alignment, eclipse events, beginning-of-life and end-of-life operation. The SAS also provides complete programmable control of all the parameters that shape the solar cell I/V output curve. By being able to accurately simulate solar panels under various space conditions with complete control, a system developer can comprehensively verify design margins and quickly test, in production, spacecraft power systems and their associated electronics.


Each Solar Array Simulator is a fully integrated, turn-key system complete with Windows NT graphical user interface and hardware control software. It can be remotely controlled and addressable as a single device when integrated into a customer's test system. This control is accomplished via a standard ethernet or optional GPIB interface using standard SCPI format commands.

As a very important consideration in spacecraft testing, discrete hardware protection systems are a standard part of every SAS. These include subsystems that can remove power at the output of the SAS in under 10 microseconds. Each SAS string has an electronic circuit breaker and relay disconnect, so faults are localized and minimize disruption of the last process. SAS systems have been designed and delivered ranging from desktop, 2 channel, R&D units to systems capable of controlling two 64 channel SAS systems simultaneously. AMETEK's Engineered Solutions Group can assist in defining special requirements and customize each system using a standard building block approach. This allows each customer to get exactly what id needed while minimizing costs.

IMG-RS

Ametek RS Series

sku Product SKU:  AME-RS-Series

The RS Series consists of multiple high power AC and DC power systems that provide controlled AC and DC output for ATE and product test applications.

This high power AC and DC test system covers a wide spectrum of AC and DC power applications at an affordable cost. Using state-of-the-art PWM switching techniques, the RS series combines compactness, robustness and functionality in a compact floor-standing chassis, no larger than a typical office copying machine. This higher power density has been accomplished without the need to resort to elaborate cooling schemes or additional installation wiring. Simply roll the RS unit to its designated location (using included casters), plug it in, and the RS series is ready to work for you.

Simple Operation
The RS Series can be operated completely from its menu driven front panel controller. A backlit LCD display shows menus, setup data, and read-back measurements. IEEE-488, RS232C, USB and LAN remote control interfaces and instrument drivers for popular ATE programming environments are available. This allows the RS Series to be easily integrated into an automated test system. For advanced test applications, the programmable controller version offers full arbitrary waveform generation, time and frequency domain measurements, and voltage and current waveform capture.

Configurations
The RS90 delivers output up to 90kVA in AC mode and 65% of rated power in DC and AC+DC mode.

For higher power requirements, the RS180, RS270, RS360, RS450 and RS540 models are available. Available reconfigurable RS models (-MB designation) provide multiple controllers which allow separation of the high power system into up to six individual RS90 units for use in separate applications. This ability to reconfigure the system provides an even greater level of flexibility not commonly found in power systems.

Product Evaluation and Test
Increasingly, manufacturers of high power equipment and appliances are required to fully evaluate and test their products over a wide range of input line conditions. The built-in output transient generation and read-back measurement capability of the RS Series offers the convenience of a powerful, and easy to use, integrated test system.

Regenerative, bidirectional “Green” Power Solution

The RS Series features the ability to both source and sink current, i.e. bi-directional current flow. The RS amplifier is designed to reverse the phase relationship between the AC input

Avionics
With an output frequency range to 819 Hz (or 905 Hz with -HF option), the RS Series is well suited for aerospace applications. Precise frequency control and accurate load regulation are key requirements in these applications. The available IEEE-488 remote control interface and SCPI command language provide for easy integration into existing ATE systems. The RS Series eliminates the need for several additional pieces of test equipment, saving cost and space. Instrument drivers for popular programming environments such as National Instruments LabView™ are available to speed up system integration.

Regulatory Testing
As governments are moving to enforce product quality standards, regulatory compliance testing is becoming a requirement for a growing number of manufacturers. The RS Series is designed to meet AC source requirements for use in compliance testing such as IEC 61000, 3-2, 3-3, 3-11, 3-12, to name a few.

Choice of voltage ranges
The RS Series includeds 150V and 300V line to neutral. These models provide 3 phase output capability of 260 Vac or 520 Vac line to line respectively.

For applications requiring more than 300 V L-N (or 520 V L-L), the optional -HV output transformer provides an additional 400 V L-N and 693 V L-L output range for use in AC mode only.

High Crest Factor
With a crest factor of up to 3.6, the RS 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. The RS90 can deliver up to 720 Amps of repetitive peak current (150 V AC range) per phase to handle high crest factor three phase loads.

Remote Control
Standard RS232C & USB IEEE-488 along with optional LAN remote control interfaces allow programming of all instrument functions from an external computer. The popular SCPI command protocol is used for programming.

Application Software
Windows® application software is included. This software provides easy access to the power source's capabilities without the need to develop any custom code. The following functions are available through this GUI program:

  • Steady state output control (all parameters)
  • Create, run, save, reload and print transient programs
  • Generate and save harmonic waveforms
  • Generate and save arbitrary waveforms
  • Measure and log standard measurements
  • Capture and display output voltage and current waveforms

  • Display IEEE-488 or RS232C bus traffic to and from the AC Source to help you develop your own test programs.


1. Requires PC running WindowsXP™ or Windows 2000™ / 2007.

Harmonic Waveform Generation
Using the latest DSP technology, the RS Series programmable controller is capable of generating harmonic waveforms to test for harmonics susceptibility. The Windows Graphical User Interface program can be used to define harmonic waveforms by specifying amplitude and phase for up to 50 harmonics. The waveform data points are generated and downloaded by the GUI to the AC source through the remote interface. Up to 200 waveforms can be stored in nonvolatile memory and given a user defined name for easy recall.

All RS Series configurations offer three phase waveform generation, allowing independent phase anomalies to be programmed. It also allows simulation of unbalanced harmonic line conditions.
 

Arbitrary Waveform Generation
Using the provided GUI program or custom software, the user also has the ability to define arbitrary AC waveforms. The arbitrary waveform method of data entry provides an alternative method of specifying AC anomalies by providing specific waveform data points. The GUI program provides a catalog of custom waveforms and also allows real-world waveforms captured on a digital oscilloscope to be downloaded to one of the many AC source's waveform memories. Arbitrary waveform capability is a flexible way of simulating the effect of real-world AC power line conditions on a unit under test in both engineering and production environments.

RS Series - AC and DC Transient Generation
The RS Series controller has a powerful AC and DC transient generation system that allows complex sequences of voltage, frequency and waveshapes to be generated. This further enhances the RS's capability to simulate AC line conditions or DC disturbances. When combined with the multiphase arbitrary waveform capabilities, the AC and DC output possibilities are truly exceptional. 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.

Transient programming is easily accomplished from the front panel where clearly laid out menu's guide the user through the transient definition process.

RS Series - Measurement and Analysis
The RS Series is much more than a programmable AC, DC or AC+DC power source. It also incorporates an advanced digital signal processor based data acquisition system that continuously monitors all AC source and load parameters. This data acquisition system forms the basis for all measurement and analysis functions. These functions are accessible from the front panel and the remote control interface for the RS Series.

Conventional Measurements [All controllers]
Common AC and DC measurement parameters are automatically provided by the data acquisition system. These values are displayed in numeric form on the front panel LCD display. The following measurements are available: Frequency, Vrms, Irms, Ipk, Crest Factor, Real Power (Watts), Apparent Power (VA) and Power Factor.

Harmonic Analysis
The RS Series provides detailed amplitude and phase information on up to 50 harmonics of the fundamental voltage and current (up to 16 kHz). Harmonic content can be displayed in both tabular and graphical formats on the front panel LCD for immediate feedback to the operator. Alternatively, the included GUI program can be used to display, print and save harmonic measurement data. Total harmonic distortion of both voltage and current is calculated from the harmonic data.

Waveform Acquisition
The measurement system is based on real-time digitization of the voltage and current waveforms using a 4K deep sample buffer. This time domain information provides detailed information on both voltage and current waveshapes. Waveform acquisitions can be triggered at a specific phase angle or from a transient program to allow precise positioning of the captured waveform with respect to the AC source output. The front panel LCD displays captured waveforms with cursor readouts. The included GUI program also allows acquired waveform data to be displayed, printed, and saved to disk.
