PQSIM 200™

A Power Practitioner™ Training Tool

“A dedicated AC generator that produces voltage and current waveforms of the most common Power Quality disturbances”

PQSIM 200 was designed by Power Quality Experts with 30 years’ experience testing and documenting Power Quality. The PQSIM 200™ provides the user with the capability to select PQ events and their magnitude to test PQ instrument setups, capture capability with a repeatable and predictable voltage and current waveforms.

Features

  • User selectable PQ disturbances to train new PQ instrument users and engineers.
  • An automatic sequence steps through a series of PQ disturbances including phase to neutral of voltages sags, swells, and transients, and neutral to ground disturbance of voltage swells and transients. In addition, generating odd harmonics as well.
  • A dedicated AC function generator that produces voltage and current waveforms of the most common types of power quality disturbances.
  • A voltage waveform of 1.5Vrms representing current on BNC connector.
  • Cables adapters to fit meter input connectors available.

General Specification

  • Power Input: 12VDC Voltage
  • 0 to 1.5 VAC (Current signal to PQ Meter)
  • Output Phase Voltage 120~240 VAC, 50Hz / 60Hz

Selectable PQ Disturbances
