EV Battery Pack Testing in a Manufacturing Environment
29 June 2011 | Source: Independent Resources
Electric vehicles are clearly becoming a growing part of the automotive scene. They promise low or no emissions, conceivably low cost of fuel from the power grid, yet they will continue to deliver us safely from here to there. However, electric vehicle design and manufacturing is a clearly a paradigm shift for the Auto Industry – new drive systems, technologies… and test plans.
Electric vehicles are bringing new test and validation challenges to the automotive industry as the electronic and software content of the vehicles grow. In this white paper, we will discuss the basics of electric vehicle battery pack designs and some of the tests that should be performed on them in a manufacturing environment. We’ll also show you how the DMC Battery Testing Platform can help solve these complex testing problems.
