NH Research Inc. offers a 40-V model as a part of its 9200 family of high-power battery charge/discharge test systems. Suitable for xEV electric vehicle battery power cycling and drive-cycle simulations, the Model 9200-4904 comprises independent 12-kW dc power modules that enable testing of a number of smaller batteries, each with a different test plan, power level, and start/stop times. Alternatively, a higher-power battery can be tested by connecting the power modules in parallel. According to the company, this configurable flexibility allows a facility to optimize test resources. The series’ units provide walk-up usability through a graphic user-interface touch-panel mounted on the system. Through this interface, the operator is able to create, run, monitor, chart, and report unit-under-test (UUT) profiles without writing any code.
