A hybrid vehicle battery test system from Sakor Technologies is energy-efficient and can perform various performance and durability cycling, including complex profiles and road load simulations. Features include a high-efficiency, line-regenerative dc power source. During discharge modes, absorbed power is regenerated back to the ac mains to improve efficiency. Driven by a DynoLAB EM controller, the system can automate performance, durability, and continuous cycling operations, including full road load simulation, and it can test complete hybrid drivelines and subsystems with or without actual batteries in circuit. The system is available with voltages of up to 1000 V dc and ranges in size from +/-200 to +/-2400 A continuous.
