The Ground Power Supply solution is used during AIT / AIV phases for representative powering of electronic on board control systems.
This solution provides electrical power to the various on board sub systems and can also sink energy from the Product Under Test. The power range is very wide: from less than 1 kW to several tens of kW.
As a baseline, the Ground Power Supply enables to simulate the internal resistor.
As options, it can be fitted with:
> second level over voltage / over current protection,
> any kind of energy sinking
> safety loops
> specific sensor simulation (thermistor, cell sample, switch, …)
