250 kW and 12 kW AccuDyne four-quadrant AC dynamometers
System will be used to test effectiveness of new alloys SAKOR Technologies Inc., a recognized leader in the area of high-performance dynamometer systems, announces that it recently provided Carpenter Technology Corp (CTC) with a dynamometer test system that will be used to test the effectiveness of new alloys being used for electric motor components and inverters. The system features both a 250 kilowatt (kW) and a 12 kW AccuDyne four quadrant AC dynamometer, which covers a wide range of electric motor testing capability. The test system also includes a 250 kW, 800 VDC, ±500 amp battery simulator. The dynamometer and other subsystems are configured for electric vehicle motor and inverter testing. The system will be automated by SAKOR’s DynoLAB test automation controller, a powerful system that enables test engineers and/or technicians to design and implement complex test procedures without the need to learn a programming language. Operators can quickly configure and run tests using the easy to use, menu driven interface. The unique multi-function two-dynamometer electric motor test system provides the ability to test a wide range of motor sizes. Also included are two universal inverters that can directly power the AC motors under test. It also includes a high voltage battery simulator that provides DC power to the customer’s vehicle inverter, available. An included cooling system enables testing of both air- and water-cooled motors and inverters.
