“Our engineering value to customers is the ability to benchmark an entire vehicle from the component to the system level. The NHR advantage for us is the scalability and flexible configuration. It’s not an engineered solution; it’s a COTS solution that allows for more use cases and makes a stronger business case to purchase. When you factor in the value and excellent support from the company, it’s an easy choice. We use the 9300 Series for testing our powertrain application.”

Improve Control in Electric Vehicle Powertrain Testing

Next generation battery emulation and DC Bus emulation provides a bi-directional approach for testing the electric powertrain. NHR’s battery emulator sinks and sources power to maintain voltage regulation, accepts back EMF which prevents safety hazards, and has isolated input and output paths to eliminate single points of failure. NHR battery emulation approach provides high performance testing for a wide range of powertrain test approaches. Contact our application experts for a consultation.
