Home » Testing a solar car with the H&H PLI3230 power supply
TTMS and H&H have joined forces in 2016 to sponsor Solar Team Twente (part of TU Twente). An H&H PLI3230 power supply was given on loan to test the Team’s solar car.
The Solar Team Twente designs and builds a solar car every other year to participate in the World Solar Challenge in Australia. In 2017 this team participated in the RED SHIFT, a solar car in which the so-called Solar Balancing technique called “SABINE” has been applied.
SABINE stands for Solar Array Balancing Interface Not Expected. It ensures that losses caused by the differences between the yields of solar cells, also known as grouping loss, are marginalised.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
