The increasingly rapid transformation to electromobility and the associated renunciation of the combustion engine are major challenges for large sections of the supplier industry. Companies are forced to rethink their business models and reinvent themselves in the process in order to adapt to the changing situation. With us, you have a competent partner who accompanies you in this difficult phase of transition and advances your development plans in the field of electric drives.

Highest level of dynamics – drive converters and electric motors

With our many years of experience we provide you with support for the development of electric traction drives. Using state-of-the-art development tools, we produce optimum solutions for the electrical design of the drive, the cooling system and mechanical integration. From initial communication of the requirement to conceptualization, development and final testing, we follow an interdisciplinary approach, culminating in an optimally harmonized overall system. We of course provide you with support when it comes to selection and use of commercially available components for your drive systems.

Full control of electrical drives and high-performance electronics

The profound understanding of our employees for the technical and physical legalities in electrical drives and high-performance electronic systems allows us to design simulation models which precisely recreate the reality at both component level and system level. This is the solid basis upon which we develop control methods which, thanks to high-performance rapid control prototyping, we are able to test on the test bench on the real system and optimize them in accordance with your requirements in the shortest space of time.

The entire picture – measurement, inspection and application 

At our laboratories in Aachen we have high-performance infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment for testing drives and power electronics with a kW range reaching up to three digits. Test bench trials are carried out by highly qualified staff with pertinent development experience. Accordingly, we can also reliably carry out measurements on prototypes, functional samples or modules, processing and evaluating the measured data in a suitable manner. The conceptualization of the testing field facilitates maximum flexibility in relation to the widest range of testing scenarios. Accordingly, in addition to traction drives with up to 800 V of system voltage, we can also test, apply and characterize high-power chargers and DC/DC converters in depth.
