Accelerating Learning
06 Aug 2019

This year ETPS sponsored Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe). They used a 60VDC/5kW electronic load to perform discharge tests on their subpacks of cylindrical cells. A second 1000V/10kW load was also supplied to test the complete pack. The team race in prestigious UK, Spanish and Chinese Formula Student competitions.
High Voltage AC/DC Loads
26 Jul 2019

The ELPA‑SINE AC load series now features models with nominal sinks up to 480Vrms/700Vdc, at 2800W and 3750W. Each unit has seven dedicated operating modes and an adjustable power factor from unity to zero. The new models are ideal for testing high voltage inverters, as well as other smart grid related devices.
