Itech IT6000C series bidirectional power supplies are programmable bi-directional power supplies for higher power with special features. This DC power supply is bi-directional (Also called unipolar power supply or two quadrant power supply ) and can source or sink power. Switching from source to sink is seamless. In addition there is the multitude of interfaces that are standard on the IT6000C. The battery test and emulation functions, the extensive solar array simulation for PV inverter test and the stability of this power supply at varying voltages and loads.
From 5 kW to 144 kW, the Itech IT6000C series comprises more than 40 models. The maximum output voltage is 2250V and the maximum current is up to 2040A. Due to the power flex range of voltage and current, the maximum power of the IT6000C is available over an extremely width range.
The IT6000C family offers fast rise and fall times and programmable output resistance. This is useful when emulating batteries, among other things. The IT6000C models are designed for continuous sink/source applications such as automotive electronics, solar panel I-V curve simulation, DC motors testing and battery testing. If this bi-directional power supply works as a load, the power consumed by the DUT is regenerated for feed back into the grid. For battery testing and Fuel testing there is special software available; the BSS2000 battery test software and the FSC3000 Fuel Cell test software.
A classic two quadrant power supply shows a jump and discontinuity at the transitions between positive and negative current. The IT6000C series is a fast two-quadrant power supply with CC/CV priority function to achieve a fast current transfer between the power supply mode and the electronic load mode, to switch quickly and seamlessly between sourcing and sinking power. This makes it suitable for measurements on fast battery charging and discharging without sacrificing accuracy.
The up/downtime of the IT6000C power supply is below 15..30ms depending on the load. The transient response time is less than 2ms. Modified setpoints or loads are processed quickly without overshoot. For higher power levels, several units can be connected in parallel in Master-Slave mode. The excellent performance is maintained. The units are easily programmable and of course have a List mode for storing, calling and executing program steps.
An Itech IT6000C unipolar power supply offers built-in test curves for automotive voltages and test curves to support the simulation function for testing the (solar panel I-V) voltage curves with the optional SAS1000 software.
The IT6000C series power supplies are OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP protected and come standard with USB, CAN, LAN and digital IO interface.
An overview of the models can be found below.
The IT6000C is widely used for testing automotive electronics. For instance, EV battery test, battery simulation, LED, aerospace, solar panel I-V curve simulation, military applications, DC-DC converters, inverter voltage drop test, engine start simulation, product life cycle test and other applications.

"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.”
