Simplifying motor testing and characterization

The session will go into the question how to simplify advanced testing tasks related to electric/hybrid propulsion systems. Beyond pure power and efficiency measurements, it will discuss analysis topics like NVH, DQ0, Space vector, torque ripple, back EMF, dynamic power measurements and correlating vibration and electric drive test data. Furthermore the presenter will discuss how to handle the testing of drives with voltages > 1000 V more than > 3phases or multiple motors/generators (a common sight in the maritime industry).
