This June, our UK laboratory Applus+ 3C Test conducted a first round of EV-motor EMC tests for Development Validation (DV), in static mode (rotor locked).
Applus+ 3C Test will also carry out the Product Verification tests in dynamic mode, using the new high-power dyno, which will be installed in the lab at the end of July.
Our testing centre at Silverstone (UK) has successfully conducted an EMC test campaign to validate the development of a new EV-motor. In this first campaign, which was successfully finished in June, the EV-motor was tested in static mode with the rotor locked.
Our client enjoyed a smooth service, with their engineers able to remotely participate in the campaign without travelling to the UK, thanks to the use of Hololens, one of our remote testing solutions .
What’s more, Applus+ 3C Test was able to perform the campaign with its own auxiliary equipment. They could support calibration and communication protocols themselves, meaning the client didn’t need to send their much-used, costly equipment, which would be missed in the meantime. Our capabilities include:
In September, this EV-motor will start the product validation phase. Applus+ 3C Test will be assessing this electric drive motor dynamically, using a new high-power mobile dyno (~135 kW). This new dyno has been developed by our engineering team and will be installed in the UK EMC lab at the end of July. It will enable us to test EV-motors with a loaded system, removing the need for rotor locked/static testing and thus providing excellent correlation with the vehicle level EMC performance.
