The battery is critical for all systems of an electric vehicle (EV) to function properly, but testing each component with a real battery can be impractical, expensive, and potentially dangerous. So why not use software with an emulated battery to test more efficiently and safely?
Real batteries have physical limitations like charging/discharging cycles and aging, which interfere with test accuracy. An emulated battery is programmable and can be simulated to any state of charge to provide consistent, repeatable test results against infinite real-world conditions.
As a part of NI’s software-connected portfolio, learn how NH Research’s (NHR) battery emulator provides realistic battery characteristics to keep engineers focused on speeding test and increasing product performance, rather than on battery behavior nuances.
