Home » Itech IT8000 Series Regenerative DC loads
The Itech IT8000 Series Regenerative DC loads are powerful electronic loads in a compact format. The many integrated features allow the user to simulate different load profiles where the energy absorbed is returned to the grid. This environmentally friendly technique has an efficiency of up to 95% and significantly reduces the waste of energy, which is often lost as heat. With its modular design and high power density, the Itech IT8000 offers a load capacity of up to 18kW in 3U-high housing. Higher power ratings up to 1,152kW are made possible through master-slave parallel switching with active load current sharing.
The Itech IT8000 series is suitable for DC voltages up to 2.250V and currents up to 2.040A. A stand alone master – slave combination is suitable for a power up to 144kW. Parallel connection of several of these stand alone units makes an output of up to 1.125kW possible.
The standard built-in arbitrary waveform generator offers the user enormous flexibility in programming load profiles. The different profiles and steps are easily imported or exported via USB with the LIST function.
For use in current energy storage applications, this regenerative DC load is already equipped with a number of powerful functions as standard, including the;
In addition, the IT8000 Series Regenerative DC Electronic load is provided with protections for: OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP/UVP, Vsense anti-reverse connection and voltage transient drop
For applications in an automatic test setup or ATE environment, communication is possible via USB/CAN/LAN/digital IO interface and optionally via GPIB/Analog&RS232. The programming functions support the SCPI protocol and LabVIEW drivers are available.
An overview of the models can be found below.
These regenerative loads are suitable for a wide range of high power DC load tests in industry, defence, aerospace and energy storage systems. For example: testing of charging stations, discharging and loading of (car) batteries, fuel cells and batteries. But also server (DC) power supplies, telecommunication power supplies, generators, capacitors (banks), rectifiers and UPSs.

"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.”
