Ametek / Elgar SAS Solar Array Simulator

  • Total Control of I/V Behavior
  • Designed to Operate at the Knee
  • Fast Profiling Current Source
  • Bus Overvoltage Protection
  • Hardware Shutdown System


The Ametek / Elgar SAS Solar Array Simulator system reproduces all possible solar array outputs, based on the wide variety of input conditions that an array faces, including orbital rotation, spin, axis alignment, eclipse events, beginning-of-life and end-of-life operation. The SAS also provides complete programmable control of all the parameters that shape the solar cell I/V output curve. By being able to accurately simulate solar panels under various space conditions with complete control, a system developer can comprehensively verify design margins and quickly test, in production, spacecraft power systems and their associated electronics.

Each Solar Array Simulator is a fully integrated, turn-key system. It can be remotely controlled and addressable as a single device when integrated into a customer's test system. This control is accomplished via a standard ethernet interface using standard SCPI format commands.

As a very important consideration in spacecraft testing, discrete hardware protection systems are a standard part of every SAS. These include subsystems that can remove power at the output of the SAS in under 10 microseconds. Each SAS string has an electronic circuit breaker and relay disconnect, so faults are localized and minimize disruption of the last process.
