Charged EVs | Improving EV powertrain testing and validation


Sponsored by Unico

Welcome to the first installment of Unico’s Test Stand Tech Tips. Here, Unico will provide you with a brief introduction to its solutions and welcome you to watch the video below, where the Director of Engineering, Don Wright, will walk you through some of the benefits associated with the implementation of SiC inverters and common bus-based system designs.  

While Unico is typically known for our AC Drive Systems, multi-axis control and related dyno test solutions, it is also currently supplying test systems to a majority of the OEM’s, integrators, and machine builders for the following manufacturing and development applications:

  • eMotor
  • eAxle
  • Battery Test/Simulation 
  • PDU (Power Distribution Unit)
  • EDU (Electric Drive Unit)
  • Inverters
  • EMC

To address the shift towards electrification, Unico has adapted to its customer’s needs by developing SiC and IGBT based common DC bus designs for systems that utilize both AC and DC power for applications such as eAxle, Inverter, and EDU applications. 


Unico’s new SiC power platform can help take your EV propulsion development to new levels by utilizing a modular concept that applies SiC power modules for both AC & DC testing/control applications. For AC applications, the SiC modules are applied as high-performance dyno drives, universal inverters, and e-motor emulators. As a high-performance DC source, the modules can operate as scalable battery test systems or battery emulators up to 1200VDC@40kHz.

You can rely on Unico as a test and validation partner for your EV application. Connect today with a Unico representative for your next project.
