Traction inverter design and validation engineers need to test hybrid and electric vehicle inverters for software and electrical functionality at the signal level with a closed loop simulator. Physical testing with a dynamometer is costly, limited in test coverage, and introduces potential safety concerns and risk to expensive test equipment. Combined with the challenge of rapidly evolving DUTs, it becomes increasingly difficult to meet aggressive time-to-market demands.
- Model-Based Development—Leverage existing design models to test traction inverters in simulation and avoid expensive lab testing
- Model Accuracy—Simulate electro-mechanical, vehicle dynamics, and battery models at 500 kHz+ to test the inverter with sufficient accuracy
- Seamless Integration—Deploy quickly using existing third-party plant models, tools, and workflows in order to meet aggressive delivery schedules
- Comprehensive Testing—Fault insertion for opens and shorts in hardware as well as network messages in software
- Repeatability and Reproducibility—Save test states and test configurations to put the tester back into a known state or configuration
