The ABC-150 Power Processing System has the power and versatility you need for hybrid and electric vehicle test and development needs
The ABC-150 Power Processing System has the power and versatility you need for hybrid and electric vehicle test and development needs. Dual channels provide the ability to perform two different tests simultaneously, Bi-directional capability allows clean AC power to be sent back to the utility grid, eliminating the need for resistive load banks and the associated cooling equipment.
The ABC-150 tests integrated drive trains and subsystems. Cycle test motors, inverters, and energy storage components. The ABC-150 is also capable of simulating energy storage systems in the vehicle, such as the battery, flywheel, drivemotor/inverter, auxilliary power unit or fuel cell. The flexibility of the systems allows for simulation of a constant DC bus (infinite battery source) or real battery behavior. The behavior (battery impedance) of the simulated battery can be a function of battery type, load, State of Charge (SOC), ambient temperature, age, recent history or any number of parameters.
