Electrical Machine Testing & Powertrain Testing

Gain the competitive edge in electrification with HBM Power Analyzers. Designed specifically for the testing of electrical machines and inverters, HBM systems offer significant benefits over conventional power analysers when it comes to electrical machine and powertrain testing.

Premium electrical machine testing from HBM comes in the form of the eDrive solution, which covers the entire measurement chain: high-precision sensors, powerful instruments, and intuitive software. Mechanical signals (e.g. torque) and electrical signals (current and voltage) are acquired simultaneously, helping engineers to better understand the electrical drive and its losses faster and more accurately than ever before.

 

Two critical selling points of the eDrive electrical machine testing solution include:

  • High accuracy Power Analyzer: Measures and calculates electrical signals and power in real-time on up to 51 channels, as well as mechanical power with up to 6 torque / speed signals and a typical Base Power Accuracy of 0.02%. 
  • High performance Data Acquisition System (DAQ): Synchronous and continuous recording of electrical signals, torque, speed, temperature, acceleration, CAN bus and much more. Real time or post process analysis for result verification, mappings or advanced analysis like electrical and NVH correlations.

The eDrive solution from HBM covers the entire measurement chain: high-precision sensors, powerful instruments and  intuitive software. Mechanical signals (e.g. torque) and electrical signals (current and voltage) are acquired simultaneously  and help engineers to better understand the electrical drive and its losses faster and more accurately than ever before.

  • Real-time analysis such as space vector and dq0 transformation
  • Raw data storage enables advanced analyses such as iron loss, copper loss maps, or MTPA curves

Efficiency maps in minutes: 
Save several hours of time by completing your analysis right at the test stand

How to Interface with Genesis HighSpeed and/or Perception

Would you like to integrate the HBM eDrive electrical machine testing solution into your test stand automation? Perception software and/or the Genesis HighSpeed hardware can be used in your specific environment, in exactly the way you want.

Several large system integrators already did integrate eDrive, using one or more of the interfaces available:

  • EtherCAT or CAN FD for hardware-based data transfer with up to 1000 result blocks/s in real time
  • API interfaces to directly control the hardware as well as the Perception software from common automation software packages
  • The nCode GlyphWorks software for post-acquisition signal processing and power calculation
  • Data reader dll to read the data into any 3rd party analysis software like MATLAB or LabVIEW.
  • So, integration is a breeze, using the powerful tools available.
