April 4, 2023 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, Inc., an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Measure the Efficiency of Renewable Energy Grids," that covers how the latest power analyzers and grid simulators can keep the power flowing efficiently and without fail on energy grids. Developing and maintaining these power grids requires regular voltage and current measurements on AC and DC power lines and junctions. Fortunately, the latest power analyzers and grid simulators combine the test speed and accuracy needed to ensure the highest-quality power from renewable energy sources and the power grids they support.

Basic measurements of AC and DC electric power in power grids include voltage, current, efficiency, power, and total harmonic distortion (THD), with accuracy within a fraction of one percent. Modern power grids tend to be dynamic in nature, with a diversity of power sources. The number of power sources in any power grid will grow to increase capacity as demand for energy increases.

Many of the measurements required for reliable electrical safety compliance testing can be performed with a single multifunction analyzer if it provides the performance levels required by the appropriate electrical safety standards. Learn more about the most important equipment you will need when using compliance analyzers by reading the full blog post on Axiom's website: https://www.axiomtest.com/blog/Electrical-Safety-Compliance-Analyzers-Helps-Make-More-Reliable-Designs/

Measure the Efficiency of Renewable Energy Grids

Energy is essential for most homes and businesses and its generation has long depended upon the burning of fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas. But global supplies of such fuels are limited and the process of converting them to electric power adds harmful gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), into the atmosphere. Energy can be produced from a variety of sources other than fossil fuels, including solar power, wind turbines, hydroelectric power plants, geothermal energy (using heat from the Earth’s core), even from the movement of oceanic water from regular tidal changes. One of the newest forms of renewable energy comes from burning biomass materials, which are plants and animals which can be burned as fuels, to generate energy. Ethanol is an example of a biofuel. In some areas, farmlands formerly used to grow food crops are being converted to grow grains and other plants that can be harvested for energy.

Efficient use of power from renewable energy sources requires its storage and distribution, typically by means of power grids. For several years, major utility firms have been evaluating their transmission and distribution assets to include investments in renewable energy as part of their modified power grids. Developing and maintaining these power grids requires regular voltage and current measurements on AC and DC power lines and junctions. Fortunately, the latest power analyzers and grid simulators combine the test speed and accuracy needed to ensure the highest-quality power from renewable energy sources and the power grids they support. Analyzers and meters characterize power from a device under test (DUT) while grid simulators perform measurements of voltage, current, and power while also serving as a precision power supply for the DUT (in place of what would have been energy supplied by the power grid). A regenerative grid simulator can precisely tune the power supplied to a DUT while returning power generated or unused by the DUT during testing to the power grid with minimal dissipation of the energy as heat.

Modern power grids tend to be dynamic in nature, with a diversity of power sources. The number of power sources in any power grid will grow to increase capacity as demand for energy increases. Homeowners with rooftop solar panels, for example, who generate energy beyond their own needs may sell or trade the power to utilities and serve as a small source within the total power grid. Any additional energy channels within a power grid must be regularly tested to maintain energy supply quality.
