Dates: Feb 4th from 3pm to 4:15pm
Location: San Diego Convention Center, Room 9

Presentation Description:

Bi-directional Test Solutions to Manage the Impacts of Electrification on the Grid

EV DC Fast Charging deployments are accelerating. The ability to simulate these loading profiles is critical for: validating sophisticated load management systems and assessing the impact on the grid. Regenerative bi-directional sources, grid simulators and battery emulators are the engineer’s tool for testing new power management systems, solar (PV), energy storage systems, EVs and DC fast chargers. These bi-directional capabilities are especially ideal for utility companies to test and understand the impacts of e-mobility and grid-tied devices (DG and V2G) on the grid. Simulating the bidirectional power flows to and from the grid substantially speeds up testing time and reduces energy costs.

Key Presentation Takeaways:

• Identify power test approaches for strategic load management & utility grid testing
• Learn about next gen technologies for simulating real-world conditions & load profiles
• Industry use cases

NHR’s flexible test solutions include: 9200 & 9300 bi-directional DC power, 9410 regenerative grid simulator, 9410 AC Source and 9430 4-Quadrant AC loads.
