SAKOR Technologies, Okemos, MI, has released the HybriDyne™ Series of hybrid vehicle driveline test systems. The HybriDyne calibrates the performance, efficiency, and durability of hybrid drivetrain systems, including electrical assist, diesel electric, and fully electric vehicle systems. The system integrates components of SAKOR’s DynoLAB™ PT Engine Test Cell Supervisory System with elements of its DynoLAB™ EM Electric Motor Test System. Coupled with one or more AccuDyne™ AC Motoring Dynamometers, the modular HybriDyne is capable of testing individual mechanical and/or electrical components, integrated subassemblies, and complete drivetrains with a single installation.

ImageThe HybriDyne system can simultaneously determine the performance and efficiency of each component and sub-system being tested, as well as the entire system as a whole, in real time. The mechanical control and data acquisition components of the HybriDyne manage and monitor all engine and mechanical system functions, while the electrical subsystem monitors and controls all electrical values from low-voltage control as well as high-voltage DC and three-phase AC buses. The DynoLAB’s capabilities provide for traditional steady-state testing, along with complete road load and in-use simulation.
