The Battery Emulator is a regenerative DC/AC converter designed to behave like different kind of batteries, allowing the test of battery chargers, inverters or other kind of system that use batteries without the need of having real batteries.
It can emulate a DC output from 12 to 750V.
Additionally, it allows considerable energy savings when regenerating the energy to the grid.

Functional description
Battery emulator can be preogrammed to behave as different kind of batteries: Lead-Acid, Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, Li-Io, Li-Phosphate. The programmable parameters of the emulators are: capacity voltage, maximum and minimum charging and discharging currents, aging, internal resistance, as well as some faults like lower battery level than its minumum voltage, unbalanced or the internal protection. A virtual Battery Management System (BMS) can be activated with different parameters.

Regenerative power supply
The converter is based on a hardware topology allowing a bidirectional power flow from the DC input to the grid output providing important energy savings when cycling batteries. At the same time, higher power tests are possible due to this feature.

Profiles for testing
For testing purposes, a power/time profile can be configured.
