Research into the use of measurements and sensing technologies on the electric machine/power converter to control it in a particular manner or find out something whilst the system is running that we cannot find in any other ways.
Derivation of dynamic performance maps and improved understanding of the limitations of electrical machines using dynamometers to loads those machines as if they we in situ in an application.
An experiment in which real (or physically present) component of a system is replaced with an equivalent computer simulation that runs in real-time. This allows tests of full-systems (e.g. a whole car) to be carried out even if bits of it aren’t available or ready yet (e.g. engine).
The procedure of measuring the waste heat of chemical reactions or physical changes. This technique allows very accurate measurements a components/system’s working efficiency to be calculated experimentally.
Sub-Assembly Based Loss Measurements and Thermal Model Development
We are world leaders in the process of measuring and understanding the causes of inefficiencies in the individual sub assemblies of an electric drive and their contribution to the entire system’s inefficiency as if they were operating in the full drive.
Characterising Electromechanical Components and Systems
Development of techniques to efficiently characterise electromechanical systems and components through a range of tests and experiments.
