Sakor Technologies Provides New Dynamometer
Provides New Dynamometer System To Nexteer Automotive For Testing Electric Vehicle Motors And InvertersSystem will be used to test new line of electric vehicle propulsion systemsSAKOR Technologies Inc., a recognized leader in the area of high-performance dynamometer systems, announces that it recently provided Nexteer Automotive with a dynamometer test system designed to test high speed motors and inverters in hybrid and electric vehicle designs. Nexteer, a multibillion-dollar global steering and driveline business, will use the dynamometer system to test its new line of complete electric vehicle propulsion systems.The system will feature a 164 kilowatt (kW) AccuDyne™ four quadrant AC dynamometer to provide the required torque and maximum speed of 12,000 revolutions per minute (rpm). The test system also includes a 175 kW, ±500 Vdc, 500 amp battery simulator. The system can be easily upgraded at a later date to support higher speeds and greater power densities if future designs require it.The dynamometer and other subsystems are configured for electric vehicle motor testing and the entire 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 dynamometer is capable of full bi-directional braking.
