Leuven - January 2013: SEPDC Racks and RTT successfully pass FAT

SEPDC Consortium Partners are glad to announce that the SEPDC Racks and RTT have successfully passed their Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). The FAT was held on the 22nd of January 2013 at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL), Leuven in Belgium in the presence of all the consortium partners and the Topic Manager, SAFRAN Hispano-Suiza. The conducted tests concerned the following aspects:

  • RTT <-> Rack communication via Modbus from a host computer
  • Instrumentation measurement accuracy for V & I
  • Component temperature during Rack operation
  • Control of the main switching element
  • Pre-charge circuit operation

Following the successful FAT, the next step will be the integration of the Racks into the Central Cabinet of the SEPDC and its associated FAT at the premises of Hazemeyer in Gauchy, France.
