The design of an electric motor dyno test cell can range from a simple benchtop bicycle break to a multi-million dollar system. No matter the scale of a system, there are certain practices that can make a system effective or a nightmare. Many of these problems come from inexperience or lack of budget. New technologies and industry knowledge can help to improve any test stand.
In this workshop, we will discuss:
- Electric dyno testing procedures & goals
- Motor test rig horror stories – mistakes that can cost you time and money
- The core components to a successful test stand
- Integrators vs in house systems
- Data acquisition for an electromechanical test
- State of the art testing and advanced motor analysis
- Review of attendee testing needs
Anyone designing, improving and/or testing electric motors, inverters and variable speed drives.
