Solar Power Generation Trainer
This option of the Solar Power Generation Trainer can work in both off-grid and on-grid modes. It consists of a PV panel and an array of halogen lamps as a sun simulator. The positions of both the PV panel and Sun Simulator can be controlled manually using joysticks and also from the software. The trainer also has a dual-axis solar tracking system. The trainer allows to simulate real light, daytime, year time and investigate the PV performance in different irradiation. In off-grid mode, it allows to investigate the battery charging process using a DC charge controller and also the discharge using an AC-DC Inverter and loads. In on-grid mode, it allows implementing the synchronization with the mains power grid using a Grid-tie inverter.
