Power Component Tester


Application: Validation
UUT: Powertrain Inverter, DC/DC converter, active/passive components
Phases: 3


During the validation process the determination of the electrical performance of passive and active components, as well as power electronic components is often complex. Depending on the test case, different sources or sinks need to be combined.


The AVL Power Component Tester (PCT) is an integrated test solution. It consists of a one or three phase AC-source / sink  and a DC-source / sink, which are controlled centrally. The variability of the PCT enables easy changes between different test cases. The Power-Loop architecture of the power sources / sinks is the reason why energy can flow in a circle. The occurring power losses only need to be covered by energy out of the grid. Test cases can be done easily by using the integrated user interface. The PCT can be connected additionally to a higher-level automation system. Due to its small carbon footprint and simple connection concept, the PCA is suitable for laboratory use.
