  • NI/NHR Model 9410 Regenerative Grid Simulator

    NI/NHR’s Regenerative Grid Simulator (9410) is a unique Four-Quadrant Bi-Directional AC/DC source that simulates the utility voltage and regenerates power sourced by grid-tied inverters. Greater than 90% of power is returned to the facility thereby providing significant energy savings. The 9410 is used as a grid simulator, or emulator for testing PV inverters and other grid-tied products for compliance to IEEE 1547, UL 1741, and global industry standards. A wide-range of AC conditions can be emulated including phase imbalance (in voltage and/or phase angle relationship), voltage sag, frequency changes and harmonic injection.

  • NI/NHR Model 9420 AC Power Source with HiVAR Technology

    NI/NHR’s Model 9420  AC Power Source redefines selection of an AC Source by addressing how to compensate for reactive power from capacitive or inductive elements in the load. Often overlooked when sizing an ac source, reactive power negates some portion of nominal VA power in order to arrive at true power (Watts) that does the real work. Traditional AC sources list only their VA rating leaving it up to the user to figure out how much true power remains after reactive power reductions. In many cases that reduction is substantial and then requires selecting a much larger VA-rated source than originally anticipated. The increased cost and size penalties are often considerable.

  • NI/NHR Model 9430 Regenerative 4 Quadrant AC Electronic Load

    NI/NHR’s Model 9430 is a 4-quadrant, Regenerative AC Load that is current-regulated with selectable phase inputs/outputs and a built-in waveform digitizing measurement system. In the sink mode, it sends power back to the facility mains rather than dissipated as heat. The 9430 can simulate almost any linear or non-linear load. Applications include testing of Vehicle to Grid (V2G), solar and grid-tied inverters, UPSs, AC sources, rectifiers, circuit breakers and fuses. The HIVAR design provides reactive loading without derating True Power. This advanced design feature allows for testing high reactive load input power without the customary reduction of true power (Watts) normally required with conventional loads.
