Currents and voltages must also be measured in low voltage environments. Here we show you how such measurements are carried out with CSM measurement technology.
In order to further optimize efficiency and driving comfort, automobile manufacturers are using integrated starter generators (ISG) in mild hybrid vehicles. Fast current and voltage measurements are crucial for the optimal application of this technology. CSM offers the suitable measurement technology to perform measurements with high data rate and also in mobile testing.
The range of electric vehicles determines their suitability for everyday use and acceptance by users. For a steady increase in range, the electric power trains and their components must be continuously optimized. The following example shows how an efficient power measurement in the low-voltage range is carried out. Similarly, such a measurement could also be made in the HV range.
During the development of the electric power train for electric vehicles, voltage and current characteristics at the AC phases of the electric motors must be recorded and analyzed. The HV Breakout Modules are particularly suitable for this purpose, as they measure required values extremely quickly, synchronously and precisely.
To further minimize fuel consumption, the fuel supply must also be regulated according to demand. The recording of current curves on the fuel pump control unit over a long period of time is intended to verify whether its fuse is correctly dimensioned. In the following application report you will learn how such a measurement can be carried out easily and how the advantages of CAN and EtherCAT-based measurement modules can be combined.
