The power conversion section of the EV / HEV is composed of several power electronic units, which include the EVSE (EV Supply Equipment), on-board charger, DC/DC converter, motor driver, etc. The Chroma ATS (Automatic Test System) addresses the specialized requirements involved in testing the power electronics during not only the development phase, but also the production phase. The benefits of our ATS are not limited to the reduction of manpower and prevention of human error; they also include advanced features such as automatic test data recording and creation of statistical analytical reports for later design review or product improvement. There are custom-built systems that are designed specifically for certain power electronic units; however, these systems are usually difficult to maintain and lack flexibility. These shortcomings will definitely impede the product development process as test methodologies evolve.
This webinar will focus on explaining the root causes of lithium-ion battery fires and how to prevent internal short circuits through LIB cell insulation testing with
