Induction Motor Drive Testbed


Propulsion motor testing for e-bike application
Our lab focuses on different aspects of automotive, renewable and industrial applications. The problem is simulated and analyzed using software such as MatLab or PSIM and then implemented on our experimental testbenches. As part of this exercise, our team has developed several testbeds to validate the advanced control strategies. The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for power conversion including programmable AC and DC power suppllies, high power MOSFETs and IGBTs, precision sensors, testing & measurement devices. This figure shows an automotive testbed developed for testing propulsion application for a plug-in electric vehicle. Similar testbeds have been developed for renewable energy systems and other industrial applications as well.
