The battery pack is the single most costly EV component and has the largest impact on design and performance (size, weight, acceleration, range, charge time, and vehicle life).
Join this session next week at the Charged Virtual Conference on EV Engineering, presented by NI and EA Elektro-Automatik, to learn how integrating EA Elektro-Automatik’s bidirectional, regenerative power supplies with NI’s battery test solutions gives EV test engineers and lab managers more flexible battery cycling configurations, quicker response time for new power level test requirements, and higher levels of lab automation. This joint effort accelerates the path to Zero Emissions by shortening time to market and improving safety and performance throughout the lifecycle of the battery.
Register for the webinar to discover more about this new collaborative solution empowering the EV industry.

Optimizing EV Powertrain Test Instrumentation and Improving Measurement Results
This presentation will demonstrate how test instrumentation of electric vehicle powertrains has been simplified while improving accuracy with innovative new measurement technology from CSM. The challenges associated with instrumenting test benches and electric vehicles are numerous, and are primarily associated with safely measuring current and voltage at many points throughout the high-voltage powertrain—such as between the battery and the inverter, and also between the inverter and the 3-phase motor(s).
CSM’s innovative High Voltage Breakout Module 3.3 can resolve many technical issues, such as maintaining well-synchronized data from different measurement sensors, limiting inductive interferences among those sensors, eliminating noise in the data, and managing complex instrumentation cabling. The HV BM 3.3 also performs the task of a gateway, enabling the measurement system to include other high-speed EtherCAT or CAN-based measurement data, which is converted to XCP-on-Ethernet for real-time analysis via Vector’s eMobility Analyzer function library. The compact HV BM 3.3 eliminates the need to install large power analyzers in vehicles.
Broadcast live October 18 – 21, 2021, the conference content will span the EV engineering supply chain and ecosystem including motor and power electronics design and manufacturing, cell development, battery systems, testing, powertrains, thermal management, circuit protection, wire and cable, EMI/EMC and more.
