Sakor’s HybriDyne dynamometer for hybrid drivetrains and components, shown in the test lab, calibrates the performance, efficiency, and durability of all aspects of hybrid drivetrains.

Sakor Technologies has launched HybriDyne, a comprehensive test solution for calibrating the performance, efficiency, and durability of all aspects of hybrid drivetrain systems, including electrical assist, diesel electric, and fully electric vehicle systems.

The HybriDyne system itself is a hybrid, integrating major components of Sakor’s DynoLAB PT engine test cell supervisory system with elements of its DynoLAB EM electric motor test system. Coupled with one or more of Sakor’s AccuDyne ac motoring dynamometers, the modular HybriDyne is capable of thoroughly testing individual mechanical and/or electrical components, integrated subassemblies, and complete drivetrains with a single installation.

Sakor claims the HybriDyne system is capable of simultaneously determining the performance and efficiency of each component and subsystem being tested, as well as the entire system as a whole, in real time. The mechanical control and data-acquisition components of HybriDyne manage and monitor all engine and mechanical system functions, while the electrical subsystem monitors and controls all electrical values from low voltage control as well as high-voltage dc and three-phase ac busses. The inherent dynamic profile capabilities of DynoLAB provide for traditional steady-state testing, as well as complete road load and in-use simulation.
