Chroma Techniques Options is a supplier of automated take a look at gear, and it presents a variety of EV and battery testing options. Now the corporate has launched a high-power battery simulator designed for testing battery-connected units. When built-in with any Chroma regenerative battery cycler or bidirectional DC energy provide, the software program simulates the battery state, eliminating the wait time for the cost/discharge of an precise battery.
Chroma factors out that testing units with an precise battery will be each cost- and time-prohibitive, particularly if a number of channels are required. Battery simulation software program can validate machine capabilities throughout testing with out the necessity for an precise battery.
The A170202 Battery Simulation Software program is designed to seamlessly combine with any of the corporate’s regenerative battery cyclers or bidirectional DC energy provides. Actual-time take a look at outcomes embrace voltage, present, energy, SOC proportion, cost/discharge state and capability. When battery cost/discharge testing is required, customers can change from battery simulation to battery biking.
The operation of the cycler and A170202 simulator permits the values of inner resistance, power capability, and output voltage to be modified in actual time. Customers can even make the most of regenerative capabilities that allow the power discharged to be recycled, decreasing the price of treating waste warmth. Additionally included are security options corresponding to real-time monitoring and computerized safety.
“For testing battery-connected units like electrical automobiles, on-board chargers, DC-DC converters and motor drivers, high-power battery emulation is a superb answer to verify if the machine beneath take a look at is performing as supposed. For instance, most DC quick charging units in the marketplace have an influence vary of as much as 50-350 kW. Due to that prime output voltage and energy, it’s simpler, quicker and safer to interchange the precise battery pack with a scalable answer like our battery simulation software program and new regenerative 17040E battery cycler,” stated Luis Veliz, Director of Automated Techniques for Chroma.
