The need to quickly increase EV battery testing capacity is making validation labs harder to manage and forcing engineering teams to explore ways to sustainably scale up their test lab operations. From few to dozens of test cells, managing power from the battery cyclers is one of the main challenges that impacts lab efficiency, CO2 footprint, and operational expenses.
A software- and data-centric test strategy can help but requires flexible test equipment that can be synchronized, orchestrated, and operated effectively. Battery cycler flexibility and openness is critical to achieve the scale needed in modern battery validation labs.
