BOP, while fully rated power supplies, are also high-powered operational ampliﬁers with full 4-quadrant, bipolar operation. Their output is capable of both sustained d-c and the replication of arbitrary a-c waveforms.
In Kepco’s BOP, the voltage and current outputs can be controlled smoothly and linearly through the entire rated plus and minus ranges, passing smoothly through zero with no polarity switching.
BOP are high speed power operational ampliﬁers that can be used to provide dynamically agile voltage for test and simulation. They are not general purpose power supplies. By the nature of the bipolar high speed design, they do not have any energy-storage noise discriminating output capacitors. To realize the full high speed potential of BOP, the load characteristics should be mainly resistive. If the load is capacitive, (>0.1 microfarad), the BOP must be slowed to avoid oscillation. This is accomplished in voltage mode by increasing the value of the feedback capacitance. Special terminals on the user port are available to slow the BOP for optimum current-mode stability into inductive loading.
• Source and sink 100% of their current rating.
• Separate control circuits for voltage and current with automatic crossover to current and voltage limits.
• All controls and flag signals accessible through a userport at the rear.
• Zeroable preamplifier available for scaling and summing external signals.
• Optional digital displays. Specify by substituting the suffix “D” inplace of the “M.”
Using switch-mode technology for low dissipation when sinking power from an active load, the BOP 1KW recuperate the energy for reuse. The key to this is a bi-directional a-c input power factor correcting (PFC) circuit, which allows transparent energy interchange without dissipative internal sinking.
The BOP 1KW has two primary control channels: voltage or current. Either of these may be controlled from full plus setting to full minus setting. To assure that they will intersect in one of the two source quadrants to form a closed boundary as do conventional unipolar power supplies, four auxiliary limit channels are provided: plus voltage, minus voltage, plus current and minus current. These four are controllable from a very small value to the nominal values. Their control does not pass through zero as do the primary voltage and current channels. The intersection of whichever primary control channel is engaged by the load and the respective limit channel does form a closed boundary, and a variable load automatically crosses over from the primary channel to the limit channel.
