Hybrid vehicle driveline test bench

The hybrid vehicle driveline test bench completes electric or hybrid vehicle powertrain assembly test, comprehensive performance matching optimization test, vehicle road condition simulation and other tests.

The hybrid vehicle driveline test bench is mainly used for the power system (engine, ISG motor, transmission, dynamometer) in the user product development process and its electronic control system for research and development. The engine, motor, motor controller and transmission performance tests can provide accurate and reliable test charts and data.

The driveline test bench tests the dynamics of pure electric and hybrid drive systems, simulate the energy consumption of the operating conditions, the motor and controller efficiency and the technical indicators of the drive system components. The vehicle energy consumption and control strategy are studied by simulating the actual working condition of the vehicle.

The hybrid vehicle driveline test bench is suitable for the functional test and performance test of the hybrid and AMT parallel hybrid power system in hybrid power and pure electric vehicle. Development, matching and calibration of new energy power system and driving motor are carried out. The driver operation model can simulate the vehicle road load and provide test data for the confirmation and optimization of vehicle matching parameters.

System functions


The hybrid vehicle driveline test bench has three operating modes: Hybrid drive test mode, transmission system test mode and pure electric drive test mode. The dynamometer can carry out the engine and transmission assembly experiment, pure transmission experiment and the combination of motor and transmission experiment.

With the vehicle inertia simulation algorithm, the automatic calculation of loading for vehicle driving resistance can be completed. Other functions like exporting data record, fault alarm; manual control and automatic control switch; import and export of automatic work conditions and automatic operation are also included.

Through the combination of modules and tooling change, a variety of functions can be achieved such as front wheel drive testing, reel wheel drive testing, etc.
