Automated Test Complex for Measurement and Functional Control of Spacecraft PCU Parameters

Description

This automated test complex (ATC) for spacecraft power conditioning units (PCU) is a multi-purpose system that consists of independent devices – solar array and battery simulators, load simulators, control and test station and measurement tools that can be controlled automatically or by an operator working in special software at an automated workplace.

The complex is designed to support the full range of ground tests of spacecraft PCU, including specialized power supply, all types of load, parameter measurement, formation of control commands and telemetry control, along with actual control and recording of spacecraft PCU parameters using a multiplex data communication channel.
