Axiom Test Equipment, an
electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post
that examines electric vehicles (EVs) and
hybrid electric vehicle (HEVs) power systems to understand what
should be tested and how to perform those measurements in order to achieve peak
Manufacturers of EVs and HEVs are making it simpler and more convenient to maintain
adequate electric charge levels to keep their vehicles running for longer distances
on electric power, enticing more drivers to try these environmentally friendly vehicles.
Of course, testing the electrical motors, systems, and their components is an important
part of ensuring that every EV and HEV has the longest running times and operating
lifetimes possible, and that involves understanding what needs to be tested and
how to perform the proper measurements.
Learn more about what EVs and HEVs are currently designed for and how their powertrain
and battery systems work and recharge. Using battery charge/discharge test systems
and conducting life cycle testing are a couple examples of important system tests
that this blog entry goes over. Click the link below to read what this full blog
post goes over.
"Electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are gaining in popularity
as they improve in performance. Contributing to the growing numbers of EVs and HEVs
on the roads are increasing comfort levels for drivers dealing with vehicles powered
by electric motors. Manufacturers of EVs and HEVs are making it simpler and more
convenient to maintain adequate electric charge levels to keep their vehicles running
for longer distances on electric power, enticing more drivers to try these environmentally
friendly vehicles. Of course, testing the electrical motors, systems, and their
components is an important part of ensuring that every EV and HEV has the longest
running times and operating lifetimes possible, and that involves understanding
what needs to be tested and how to perform the proper measurements.
As noted in an earlier blog on EVs and HEVs, "Making
Measurements That Keep EVs and HEVs On the Road," the growing trend of electrification
in vehicle powertrains is supporting a healthier environment with lower carbon dioxide
emissions. The electrification relies on efficient motors, high-power subsystems,
circuits, and components, and high-voltage batteries (in addition to the standard
12-V vehicle batteries that support the internal-combustion engine in an HEV). One
of the challenges for suppliers of these EV and HEV components is achieving the
power levels needed to drive the electric powertrain to sufficient speeds without
adding significant size and weight, a characteristic known as high power density.
At present, EVs are designed for much shorter driving distances than HEVs (typically
about 20 to 25 miles for "around-town" driving), relying entirely on their electric
traction motors and electric energy stored in a high-voltage lithium-ion (Li-ion)
battery for propulsion.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
