IEC TS 63106-1
Simulators used for testing of photovoltaic power conversion equipment – Recommendations – Part 1: AC power simulators
|Publication Date:||1 November 2020|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
The purpose of this part of IEC 63106 is to provide recommendations for Low Voltage (LV) AC power simulators used for testing utility interactive photovoltaic power conversion equipment (PCE).
NOTE Low Voltage refers to 1 000 Va.c. and less.
The AC power simulators connect to the AC output power port of a PCE under test and simulate the utility grid by generating comparable AC voltage.
The AC power simulators can be used to test a PCE's utility interaction characteristics, including protection, ride through, immunity and power quality. The requirements and procedures are specified in IEC standards and local utility grid requirements, selected by the network operator, utility, or authority having jurisdiction.
