Mobility is one of the main challenges of the 21st century. Environmental concern is driving a growing demand for more efficient and clean means of transportation. The advances in the field of electromobility are mostly linked to the development of battery technology and power electronics for charging, discharging and driving the electrical motors.
CINERGIA has thorough experience in providing solutions for R&D, Functional and End of Line test in this field.
Off-board EV Charger
Fast chargers are supplied from the AC grid and produce a high-power AC or DC output. Our Grid Simulator (GE+) can be used to provide stable and clean voltages as well as generate worldwide grids. When needed, the Grid Simulator will create disturbances following IEC 61000-4/11/13/14/28 standards. Our Electronic Load will emulate the electrical behaviour of an EV both in AC (EL+) or in DC (B2C+) for testing the output of a charger or an active charging cable. When simultaneity is not needed, the combined All-in-one products (AC/DC, GE/EL) will offer the most cost-effective solution.
On-Board Charger (OBC)
These chargers are connected to the grid directly or through an active cable and produce a low to mid power DC output. The Grid Simulator is the perfect fit to test the AC side of the charger in stable conditions and under disturbances, as described above. The DC side will be tested using our DC Electronic Loads (B2C+) which include a software option to emulate the electrical behaviour of a battery.
Battery Pack testing
B2C+ (DC Bidirectional Converter) is CINERGIA unit specially designed to test battery packs. Through our software, advanced tests can be configured and automated for charging, discharging, cycling, ageing and characterizing.
