Series BOP Capacitive Load Models
Kepco has introduced an option (identified by suffix C) to optimize 200W and 400W BOP models for driving capacitive loads. This option makes the BOP more suitable for a wide variety of applications such as solar cell/solar panel testing, testing of piezoelectric driving devices, capacitor testing, driving and testing of capacitive transducers, and powering industrial- or lab-type applications with capacitive or capacitive-resistive loads. |
BOP C option units are designed to operate in a stable manner in Voltage or Voltage Limit mode for capacitive loads up to 10 millifarads. They are also stable with any R-C load combinations.
They are also stable when driving any R-C parallel combination where load R is > or = to nominal value and C is < or = to 10mF. Load R (nominal value) = nominal output Voltage/nominal output Current (e.g., BOP 36-6MC, R = 36/6 = 6 Ohms. To prevent current limit mode operation, the equivalent impedence of the R-C parallel load circuit must be greater than the nominal R value at the working frequency. Static specifications representing accuracy for various influence parameters are identical to the standard BOP models. Ripple and noise specifications are better (approximately 50% lower) for the C option units compared to the standard BOP.
Consult factory for single and multiple unit pricing. Delivery 4-6 weeks ARO.
In voltage mode the bandwidth of the C option BOP is reduced versus the standard model, while the response time is increased (except for the 20V model, where the bandwidth is higher and the response time is decreased compared to the standard model). Variations of the frequency response can be nearly eliminated by reducing the bandwidth in voltage mode in a predictable manner. This is done using one customer-installed capacitor in parallel with the internal compensation capacitance to increase the compensation capacitance.
NOTE: The listed bandwidth values are for C option units in voltage mode, nominal resistive load.
In Current Mode the dynamic specifications are almost identical for all BOP C option models: 3-dB bandwidth of 4.9kHz and rise/fall time of 72mS (lower bandwidth and higher rise/fall time than the standard BOP models).
