Chroma 17040E Regenerative Battery Pack Test System i s a high-precision system specifically designed for secondary battery module and pack tests. The energy regenerative function greatly reduces power consumption during discharge, and ensures a stable power grid without generating harmonic pollution on other devices – even under dynamic charge and discharge conditions. Where traditional equipment discharges waste energy in the form of heat, Chroma 17040E can recycle the electric energy discharged by the battery module back to the grid, thus reducing waste energy and alleviating HVAC requirements.
The 17040E has built-in parallel channels and dynamic profile simulation functions. The parallel capability maximizes the charge and discharge current and power, thus increasing the efficiency and flexibility of equipment utilization. The dynamic profile simulation allows users to load a battery waveform of a given drive profile in either current or power mode to meet the NEDC/FUDS requirements. I t s bidirectional architecture assures uninterrupted current during the charge and discharge transient state so that the driving conditions can be accurately simulated in line with the ISO, IEC, UL, and GB/T international test standards.
Equipped with Chroma’s powerful Battery Pro software, the test system offers flexible test editing functions to perform independent channel tests, and conforms to various requirements for testing secondary battery packs with high safety and stability. Chroma 17040E ensures protected charge/ discharge testing through multiple safety features including Over Voltage Protection, Over Current Protection, Over Temperature Protection, and external parameter detection.
The recovery functions prevent test data is interrupted or lost in the case of power failure.
