Distributed Generation Inverter and Generator Testing Facilities

New Advanced Facilities for Inverter Testing

Advanced Lab Testing Services for Distributed Generation (DG)

In 2013, Kinectrics opened a new inverter testing lab.  The facility can test up to 6 inverters in parallel and features PV array simulators for testing inverters up to 45 kW.  Testing capabilities include:

  • Inverter efficiency and MPPT
  • Power quality
  • Fault current contribution (up to 5 MW)
  • Anti-Islanding
  • Ride-through
  • Other protection functions
  • IEEE 1547.1, UL1741, and CSA C22.2 No.107.1
 
Additionally, Kinectrics can also test other types of generators for:
  • Power quality
  • Fault current contribution
  • Anti-Islanding
  • Ride-through
  • Other protection functions
 
Other Kinectrics’ services available to support DG include:
 
  • Grounding, bonding and Lightning Protection System (LPS) assessments
  • Advanced diagnostics and condition assessment for generators and rotating machines
  • Introductory, and technical training courses
  • Field Services – Environmental Impacts and Site Assessments 
 More DG Support
 
Complementing Kinectrics capabilities in Distributed Generation are high-voltage lab facilities as well as cable, transformer, and RTDS (Real Time Digital Simulator) modelling and testing services.
