System Components

For electric/hybrid testing, a DC-DC converter is utilized. This allows the voltage supplied to the inverters controlling the test article to be decreased to a level which is typical to what the motor will see when installed in a vehicle. The output voltage and current can be controlled to any level between 0–750 VDC. Control can be analog, digital, or serial. The output filter on the DC–DC converter minimizes ripple and assists the drive in controlling the slew rate of voltage and current.
