Our offer

The Power Electronics Test Center enables comprehensive tests and measurements on (drive) converters. (plant poster; PDF)In addition to insulation tests, short pulse tests to support initial commissioning and efficiency measurements over the entire operating range, endurance tests can be carried out at freely definable load profiles. Own tests can also be defined, for example to investigate different drive and control methods. In addition, an independent impedance analyser is available, which enables highly accurate measurement of passive components such as DC link capacitors and coils.
