Data Sheet PDF: keysight (agilent) N8957APV


The Keysight N8957APV Photovoltaic (PV) Array Simulator enables you to develop, verify and optimize the performance of your inverter maximum power point tracking algorithms. Developing and verifying the performance of inverter maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms is challenging. MPPT algorithms are complex, and under-the-sun testing with a comprehensive set of temperature and irradiance conditions is difficult, expensive and time consuming.

Use the Keysight N8957APV Photovoltaic Array Simulators in your design laboratory or on your manufacturing line to simulate the output characteristics of a real-world photovoltaic array. The N8957APV PV array simulator is an autoranging, programmable DC power source that can quickly simulate I-V curve characteristics under different environmental conditions (temperature, irradiance, age, cell technology and more), enabling you to quickly and comprehensively test your solar inverters.
