Battery Test System for Electric Vehicles

26 July 2022 – NI (National Instruments) launched a new Battery Test System (BTS) for electric vehicle (EV) testing. The system is designed to help Tier 1 suppliers and automakers adapt to the complexity and scale of EV battery testing through enhanced customization, automation and connection of data across the entire battery test workflow to ensure performance and accelerate time to market.

Batteries are at the core of the shift to electrification and have a direct impact on the sustainability, safety, performance and, consequently, consumer buy-in of EVs. However, testing of EV batteries places immense strain on engineering resources as design and test groups must continuously upgrade and adapt to new test requirements.

NI’s BTS enables scalability of testing by providing an out-of-the-box experience for battery test workflows, along with customization capability to fit a variety of test roles and needs. This software-connected system is uniquely positioned to integrate components for battery test such as power electronics, environmental chambers, measurements and test channels at scale. It facilitates coordination of activities between design and test teams to request, configure, run, monitor and report on test results that inform critical design changes.

“Automakers are investing heavily to deliver on EV timelines, which has placed increased importance on test to ensure this technology meets both time commitments and consumer expectations for safety,” said Jon Denhof, Senior Director of Offering Management, Electrification. “NI’s BTS combines decades of test and measurement experience with our powerful software to enable automakers to test their batteries at scale, within budget and at pace with market demands.”

With its recent acquisition of NH Research Inc. (NHR), Heinzinger Automotive GmbH and Kratzer Automation, NI’s global capabilities for EV battery test provide automakers with a cross-functional, scalable network of products, services and solutions to meet current and future EV market demands. Additionally, NI’s SystemLink software, BTS software and data analytics tools work together to ensure traceability of test results, repeatability of the tests themselves and management of the entire test-cell and test lab operation, ultimately bringing modern software engineering tools and practices into battery testing.
