Battery Test Systems

Exploring the limits with maximum safety.
battery testbed

In modern electrified powertrains (xEVs), huge demands are placed on batteries. These electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices must meet market requirements such as long-lasting high power and energy performance, and dynamic charge and discharge processes. To support automotive battery development tasks, we have created the AVL Battery Test System. This ‘plug-and-play’ solution is a free-standing or containerized battery testbed that can be delivered as a ready-to-go turnkey solution without needing any further adaptations.

OEMs, battery, and cell suppliers have to continuously develop new packs and cells for the evolving automotive market. For battery electric vehicles (BEVs), the mileage range is a key factor, making the capacity of battery cells and packs crucial. Besides capacity, current and voltage are central to battery development. As a result, the test systems for validating battery cells and packs need to be state-of-the-art.

Battery testing

Featuring proven components, our battery test system can be applied by the operator throughout the energy storage system development process. Modular, flexible and comprehensive, it can be used for the testing of cells, modules and packs for a wide range of applications, including scooters, passenger cars, and light and heavy-duty vehicles. 

The system is ideal for the verification of supercapacitors as well as lead-acid, nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion and solid-state batteries under a wide range of climatic conditions. Advanced safety measures, including fire suppression and gas extraction systems, allow for extreme testing limits to be explored without any risk to the operator.

Battery testing

Our system offers maximum flexibility and value – from individual components to complete testing laboratories with container solutions. The battery tester AVL E-STORAGE SiC™, the AVL automation system, the AVL cell/module/battery test chambers and the AVL safety system provide ideal conditions for electrical performance tests and thermal or climatic environmental tests.

This robust, reliable, and accurate system comes with a range of features, including the relevant battery test software, facility management system and safety features. With our global footprint and decades of automotive development experience, it can be tailored to fit your needs, your workflow, and your goals.
