SAKOR Technologies will be exhibiting its test technologies at the Automotive Testing Expo North America 2018, October 23-25, 2018. On display will be hybrid and electric vehicle testing, high voltage battery testing and simulation, and the smallest ac regenerative engine dynamometer available on the market.
First up, the DynoLAB Test Cell Control System can perform a wide variety of road load profiles and simulations, and is designed for testing to all international standards, including existing and proposed EPA, CARB, and Euro standards. Second, the High Voltage Battery Simulator/Testing System is suitable for conducting research and development, performance evaluation, and durability testing of high voltage dc-power systems. It can be used for testing high voltage batteries as well as simulating high voltage batteries while testing hybrid and electric vehicle drive lines and inverter systems. The system is fully line regenerative, resulting in a power-efficient unit, minimizing electricity usage, lowering operating costs, and providing an environmentally friendly “green” profile.
Third, the Small Engine AC Motoring Dynamometer is reportedly the smallest available on the market. Featuring ultra-low inertia properties, the unit can convert between horizontal and vertical orientations, accommodating either shaft orientation. It was developed to meet the needs of small engine manufacturers who must comply with engine testing procedures required by 40 CFR Part 1065 emission standards. The machine can test both steady state and transient emissions cycles and allows users to avoid the issues associated with larger dynamometers, such as breaking of drive-shafts or couplings.
