Next Generation Battery Test Systems - 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, Accelerate Battery Test Automation with Enerchron®, held on June 16th, 2020.

In this live webinar, Martin Weiss, Product Director at NHR, will provide new insights on how to simplify and accelerate battery testing using NHR’s Enerchron battery test software. In this session, participants will learn how to develop a robust test plan and receive a tutorial on how to set up a sample test procedure and drive cycle sequence using variable-based programming.

Webinar Description:
Battery testing is complex, challenging and time consuming. Today’s engineers are looking for ways to accelerate and manage the complexities of test. A considerable amount of time is spent on test development, data collection and post-processing, not to mention, having to repeat this cycle when errors inevitably occur. Using the right software tool can dramatically reduce total testing time (time to results), eliminate operator errors and increase engineering productivity.

Enerchron is an advanced software solution with test creation, execution and reporting tools created for battery testing. Sophisticated, dynamic test sequences are created without requiring complex programming skills. By enabling the integration of modular power stages, third-party products and control stations, NHR creates comprehensive test environments that are unique to each application. Enerchron breaks the mold of traditional automated battery cycling through its unique variable-based test sequence editor and compatibility with third-party solutions and equipment. Battery cycling profiles can now be easily created, run and repurposed for any Unit Under Test (UUT) or test station.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how Enerchron differs from traditional battery test software
  • Identify how to develop a robust test plan strategy
  • Get new insights on how to simplify and accelerate your battery test approach
  • Receive a tutorial on how to set up a sample test procedure & drive cycle sequence using variables

NHR Presents Live Webinar: Electric Powertrain Next Gen Test Solutions, on May 13th

EV X-ray Powertrain Side - 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 on Electric Powertrain Next Gen Test Solutions on May 13th, 2020.

In this live webinar, Ben Jackson, Senior Applications Engineer at NHR, will discuss key industry trends impacting electric powertrain developments, current challenges and opportunities, and key factors in selecting the right test approach. This session will cover modern electric powertrain test solutions and key considerations for battery emulation.

Webinar Description:
As electrification continues to accelerate in automotive and aerospace, engineers must address new testing challenges for hybrid and electric powertrain. Modern propulsion system architectures are fundamentally different and present new challenges and risks. 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.

Electric powertrain systems are complex and raise new testing challenges including increased voltage and power levels, long test times, and different safety risks. Traditional powertrain test approaches rely on unidirectional devices that have drawbacks and limitations. Next generation battery emulation provides a bi-directional approach that sinks and sources to maintain voltage regulation, accepts back EMF which prevents safety hazards, and has isolated input and output paths to eliminate single points of failure.

This session will review how modern solutions for emulating batteries are the right approach for faster, scalable and more repeatable testing of electric powertrain systems. As electrification is evolving to higher power demands, the ability to emulate a battery with speed and precision is critical. Battery emulation can substantially reduce test time, risk, energy consumption and operating costs.

In this webinar, learn about:

  • Key Industry Trends, Challenges & Opportunities
  • Electric Powertrain Test Solutions
  • Battery Emulation Differentiators – What to Look for in a Battery Emulator
  • Cohesive, Scalable, Intuitive Software Solutions
