NHR Presents Live Webinar: Electric Aircraft Test Approaches

Electric Aircraft Test Approaches - NH Research (NHR)

NH Research Inc., a leading provider of power electronics and battery test solutions for the automotive, industrial, energy storage, and critical-power markets, will be hosting a free live webinar, Electric Aicraft Test Solutions, held on September 1st, 2020.

In this live webinar, Daniel McClelland will provide new insights on how to test traditional, hybrid and full-electric aircrafts. In this session, participants will learn how to recreate an aircraft environment with the right test equipment and test approaches.

Webinar Description:
Electric flight raises unique and unprecedented testing challenges. Therefore, it is important for engineers to use the most effective technologies and test approaches to ensure product performance, safety, reliability and reduced time to market. This webinar will review key technology considerations for battery test systems, battery emulation, loading and sourcing test solutions.

Whether you’re testing a traditional, hybrid, or full-electric aircraft system, modern test solutions are required for faster, scalable and repeatable testing. Learn how you can recreate an aircraft environment using the right test solutions that will substantially reduce test time, risk, energy consumption and operating costs. We’ll share best practices and techniques for testing electric batteries, propulsion systems, power distribution units (PDUs) and power converters/inverters.

In this webinar, learn about:

  • Market Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities
  • Key Technology Considerations and Testing Requirements
  • Modern Test Solutions and Approaches
  • Industry Applications and Use Cases

Who should attend? Commercial, military aircraft and private manufacturers and suppliers across traditional, hybrid and fully electric aircraft, e-VTOL, drones, and urban air mobility (UAM) platforms

Collins Aerospace Selects NH Research Test Solutions for The Grid Electric Power Systems Lab

Collins Aerospace The Grid Lab - NH Research (NHR)

NH Research (NHR), a leading provider of power electronics test solutions, has been selected by Collins Aerospace to provide electrification test solutions for The Grid electric power systems lab in Rockford, Illinois.

Collins Aerospace is making a $50 million investment to create the industry’s most advanced laboratory for testing high-power electrical components and systems which will redefine the future of electric flight. The Grid will enable the future of aircraft electrification and is expected to begin initial operations later this year.

At NHR, we focus on developing world-class test solutions that enable electrification. We are proud to be selected as a key partner by Collins in redefining aerospace. This revolutionary development lab will advance and accelerate technology development by enabling test capability for high-power and high-voltage designs. We are excited to help achieve this vision with our advanced test solutions and dedicated support team,” said Pete O’Brien, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NHR.

NHR will supply the high-voltage DC power farm for The Grid. The company’s 9300 regenerative, bi-directional DC source can be used as either a load or power source to recreate an aircraft environment for testing. The 9300 addresses a range of aerospace test solutions from individual components such as batteries and power electronics, to entire electric propulsion systems. NHR’s technology approach provides the speed, accuracy and safety necessary to emulate real-world conditions and optimize testing.

The 9300 test platform provides innovative battery emulation capability, flexibility to address today’s higher voltage levels, and modularity to expand for future requirements. This modular system can be scaled up to 2.4 MW in 100 kW building blocks, offering a wide operating envelope. Its dual voltage range of 600 V and 1200 V provides the flexibility and accuracy needed as higher voltage levels are required. The platform also has a unique series capability to reach higher voltages up to 1500 V. As a result, NHR’s 9300 platform allows for a range of possibilities in test while substantially reducing testing time and time to market.
