The Swiss company Regatron AG designs, manufactures and sells digital electronic high-power programmable power supplies, intended for professional applications, and supports its customers both in the choice of the most appropriate solutions, both in the supply of know-how, specialized software, cabinets and systems, accessories, optional parts and technical support remotely or at the client location.
AC /DC programmable digital high power, battery emulators, grid simulators, three-phase AC/DC power supplies for bidirectional testing and simulation of batteries, amplifiers, precision linear simulators for photovoltaic inverters, AC sources: a production of excellence spread all over the world.
Active for over 47 years in the electronics manufacturing, Regatron AG has stored a remarkable experience in manufacturing high-quality modular programmable power supplies, and is appreciated by many world leaders who use TopCon in their factories or laboratories or research and development centers.
TopCon TC.ACS AC source/sink supplies - full 4-quadrant grid simulator
The increasing number of alternative power sources like solar, wind driven or biological energy systems call for consistent and well demanding regulations for energy feed into the utility grid. Manufacturers of such systems have to test and to prove the compliance of their equipment. Grid simulators form an electronic equivalent circuit for the grid, but allow to vary all relevant parameters in order to test the behaviour and response of the equipment under test.
Application software for TopCon programmable power supplies and simulators
The TopCon hardware is fully digitally controlled and can thus be programmed in various ways. This section keeps information on the general topics with regard to controlling the TopCon hardware as well as specialized software, predominantly for automation purposes (e.g. automated tests according to relevant standards).
TC.GSS bidirectional AC/DC programmable power supplies, 2-Q
REGATRON manufactures a series of integrated current-bidirectional power sources named TC.GSS. This series combines the excellent technical data of well-known TopCon DC power supplies with modern grid-tie inverter technology in order to handle both current flows from and towards the load. The modular TopCon concept is still maintained, so a finely graduated variety in terms of voltages and power is on the customer’s disposal. TC.GSS, TC.GXS and TC.GSX are intended to fit the same 19” cabinet like the today’s TopCon DC power supply family.
TopCon Quadro AC/DC programmable power supply TC.P, 1-Q
The primary switched compact power supplies from Regatron provide excellent dynamics of output voltage, -current, -power and internal resistance simulation. This is the result of the uncompromised use of digital signal processors in an optimized multi-processor architecture and of a full digital controller structure. Typical system response times with ohmic loads are under 1 ms, with mixed ohmic / inductive loads around 1 to 2 ms.
TopCon systems in cabinets and racks for power up to megawatts
The term "TopCon System" denotes a power supply that is assembled into a cabinet. Using a cabinet allows for the integration of several TopCon devices, possibly linked to TC.LIN systems or with an integrated Q4 or Q3 functional unit.
TC.LIN linear high-precision post-processors, DC/DC 1-Q
Solar Array Simulation is one important part of testing solar inverters. One of the most important characteristics is the ability to find and track the operating point where the maximum of energy offered by the solar cell: this is called to find/track the maximum power point (MPP).
