Solar Array Simulation for Satellite Testing
Webcast - recorded (Originally broadcast April 29, 2009)
Understanding the requirements and performance of solar array simulation equipment, its limitations and strengths, can lead to more effective and higher quality test results. The sourcing of power from a solar array simulator must be an accurate substitute for a physical array such that the range of real life solar array operating performance is delivered. A solar array simulator must be capable of simulating an array in spin, moving in and out of eclipse and shadow, and over a wide temperature range. It must be compatible with the type of satellite bus regulation employed such as Maximum Power Point Tracker, Sequential Shunt Regulation, Series Regulation, etc.
From small to large systems, the effectiveness and efficiency of system control and the acquisition of data is a key consideration. This seminar discusses satellite solar array simulation considerations ranging from specific testing techniques and best practices to test system architectural elements that drive usability and reliability, test platform re-configurability and energy efficiency.
