The road to efficient and sustainable electric mobility hinges on the quality and performance of EV batteries. To drive this advancement, Unico has launched groundbreaking Quantum Drive Platform—a game-changing solution to reshape the EV battery testing industry. This article explores the significance of battery testing in EV development and dives into the innovative features of Unico’s Quantum Drive Platform.
The Crucial Role of Battery Testing in EV Development
As the world shifts towards sustainable transportation, the importance of battery testing in EV development cannot be overstated. Battery engineers, researchers, OEM’s and industry stakeholders work in tandem to create batteries that not only deliver superior performance but also uphold safety and longevity.
Thorough testing is the linchpin that ensures these attributes, making it an indispensable part of the EV ecosystem.
Battery testing not only validates the performance of individual cells, modules, and packs but also identifies potential weaknesses and opportunities for improvement. It simulates real-world scenarios, enabling engineers to optimize battery designs and fine-tune control algorithms. Moreover, the ability to accurately predict battery behaviour under various conditions is crucial for enhancing range, charging times, and overall EV efficiency.
Unico’s Quantum Drive Platform: Redefining Battery Testing
Our Quantum Drive Platform has emerged as a groundbreaking solution set to revolutionize EV battery testing. Our innovation addresses critical aspects of testing—cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, and flexibility. Displayed recently at the International Battery Seminar in Orlando, Florida, the Quantum Drive Platform has captured the attention of battery engineers, researchers, and industry leaders alike.
A standout feature of the Quantum Drive Platform is its ability to test multiple pack, module, and cell test channels within a single system. This design enables “back-to-back” battery testing, where discharge energy from one channel can be efficiently repurposed as charge energy for another. This intelligent energy utilisation not only reduces wastage but also enhances overall testing efficiency.
The platform boasts high-performance DC channels tailored for cell, module, and pack testing. What sets the Quantum Drive Platform apart is its potential for multiple channels of each type, along with different output voltage levels—all integrated into a single system. This unique configurability empowers battery engineers with unprecedented testing flexibility, streamlining the validation process.
Additionally, Unico’s Quantum Drive Platform has the capability to incorporate the company’s renowned AC drives. This feature creates a dynamic, multi-configurable solution that caters to diverse testing needs—be it AC, DC, or a combination of both. The open software interface further amplifies the platform’s appeal, allowing companies to integrate their preferred data acquisition and control systems seamlessly.
