Simplifying motor testing and characterization

During this session we will go into the question of how to simplify advanced testing tasks related to electric/hybrid propulsion systems. Beyond pure power and efficiency measurements, we will discuss analysis topics including NVH, DQ0, space vector, torque ripple, back EMF, dynamic power measurements, and correlating vibration and electric drive test data. Furthermore, we will discuss how to handle the testing of drives with voltages >1,000V, more than three phases or multiple motors/generators (a common sight in the maritime industry).
