DeMEPA HIGH POWER LABORATORY FOR SYNTHETIC TESTS
The synthetic testing is the more economical test method in the event the requested power in direct testing is higher than the power available from the Short-circuit Generator (or from a suitable HV Line).
The stress voltage and the stress current are applied to the equipment under test, with relatively low current and low voltage respectively, according to test sequences defined by the Standard (IEC, IEEE) in order to assure the complete equivalence to the direct testing.
Demepa has developed appropriate tools for the design of synthetic circuits capable of obtaining the TRVs foreseen by the standards.
Synthetic tests are also used for operational electrical tests on HVDC thyristors valves.
