Bi Polar Power Supplies

Kepco's BOP operate in all four quadrants of the voltage-current axis, therefore their output may swing seamlessly from negative, to positive voltage and the output current may also swing from positive to negative values. The result of this is that BOP will function as a source or a sink, meaning it will either deliver power to a load or absorb power from a load. In order to do that, the BOP is built as a power amplifier with a bipolar output, having a frequency bandwidth much larger than a regular power supply. The frequency bandwidth is model and option dependent.
