KPE Series

Achieves 10 kW power running and regenerative operation in a 6U-height, 23-inch rack size

Bidirectional DC Power Supply with Power Running and Regeneration Capability

The KPE series is a bidirectional DC power supply with regeneration capability*.
While offering high baseline performance and reliability as a DC power supply, the cost is kept down and outstanding cost performance is achieved through careful selection of the available features. It is optimal for evaluation and testing not only of in-car inverters for hybrid and electric vehicles, but also of motors, generators, high-capacity vehicle batteries and capacitors, as well as wind and solar power generation.

* The device is designed on the assumption that all regenerated power is consumed on the premises.

Features

  • Bidirectional DC power supply with excellent cost performance
  • Effective power utilization achieved through regeneration capability
  • Smooth switching between power running and regeneration
  • Reduced power consumption helps mitigate rise in ambient temperature

Applications

The devices can be used as the regenerating electronic load and power supply device for the applications below.

  • Evaluating charge/discharge testing for rechargeable batteries and capacitors (optional)
  • Evaluating in-car inverters and converters
  • Evaluating motors and generators
Applications

* No model supports independent operation. They stop when system power is disconnected.

Models

Model I/O power [kW] Power supply mode (power running mode) Load mode (regeneration mode)

  1. Can be manufactured for 19-inch rack type. (excluding KPE750-15 [10kW]).
    For 19-inch rack type, append "B" to the end of the model number.
  2. The voltage range that can be regenerated at the rated current will be voltage that is approximately 10% of the rating or higher.
