Our future power grid will experience a significant increase in power electronics. With the research and development activities in our lab, we contribute to ensuring grid stability. In TestLab Power Electronics, we measure PV inverters, battery converters, rectifiers, combined heat and power plants, DC/DC converters, DC fast charging stations as well as power electronics for fuel cells and electrolysers from a few watts up to the multi-megawatt range.
We perform accredited measurements according to various grid connection guidelines, for example FGW TR3, and measure efficiencies according to EN 50530, among others. As part of our research activities, we have derived accredited procedures, for example for determining the efficiency of bidirectional converters or our innovative differential impedance spectroscopy. In addition, we support our customers in individual issues, for example troubleshooting in the laboratory or in the field, in measurement of temperature-dependent derating of power or in quality-assuring measurements before product launch.
Nowadays, detailed simulations of power electronic components are indispensable for system development. We offer services and assistance in the field of simulation and modeling of individual generation units such as PV inverters or CHPs, but also, for example, of complete PV power plants.
