High-Voltage Battery Simulator and Test Systems Critical for Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Development

Randall Beattie
SAKOR, Technologies, Inc.

High voltage battery simulator and test systems are essential for conducting testing of the high voltage DC power systems that are such a critical element of electric (EV) and hybrid/electric (HEV) vehicles. To accurately test a high voltage hybrid or electric drivetrain, you need to be able to provide precise, repeatable high-voltage DC power.

Nearing the Promise of the Micro-Hybrid Vehicles: Technology Improvements and New Markets

Salil Soman, Director of Systems Engineering, PowerGenix

Until very recently, many consumers were unfamiliar with the type of vehicle defined as micro-hybrid. Even though leading research firms such as Lux Research have been predicting the vast proliferation of micro-hybrids for years; the most recent study predicts that there will be 39 million on the road by 2017. Outside of Europe, the technology has remained in the shadows of flashier electric vehicles (EVs) and more popular and ubiquitous hybrid vehicles such as the Toyota Prius.

Recognizing the threat of rising temperature brought by climate change and what, as a developed country, the UK’s fair contribution to the global effort should be, the UK Government has set a legally binding target of 80 percent CO2 reduction by 2050 compared to 1990. The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) is an independent body that advises the UK Government on setting and meeting carbon reduction targets and on preparing for the impacts of climate change.
