Fully automatic testing of electric drives
A vessel’s drivetrain can be tested with customized cycles; the battery can be automatically charged with more than 200kW. Data monitoring of the battery during the charge and discharge periods gives insights into all details and ensures a high degree of safety during prototype testing. The durability of the electric drive and its battery is proved in these kinds of tests as well. This presentation will describe a vehicle-related project for 24/7 endurance testing of electric drivetrain prototypes, including their traction batteries.
