NHR Presents Live Webinar: Accelerate Battery Test Automation with Enerchron on June 16th

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

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.
