E-Motor Test Systems

Speed in perfection. With AVL e-motor testing solutions.

The development time for e-drive systems gets shorter and shorter. Different e-motor technologies like Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM), Asynchronous Motors (ASM) or Electric Excited Synchronous Motor (EESM), new inverter technologies like Silicon-Carbide (SiC), but also different powertrain concepts make the complexity in development and testing of modern e-drive systems obvious. AVL has a wide portfolio consisting of dedicated e-motor test systems, software, tools, and processes to test and validate these modern e-drive systems in shortest time and with highest quality standards.

The e-drive plays an important role in satisfying electric vehicle drivers and passengers as it is key to an exciting driving experience. To guarantee that, modern e-drive systems are designed very compact and with highest power density and optimized in terms of efficiency, performance, and drivability. Furthermore, the e-drive system has to fulfill challenging requirements regarding NVH in order to ensure convenient driving and has to stay within strict EMC limits to ensure the safety of the vehicle. Finally, the robustness of the E-Drive system needs to be secured to fulfill the requirements of the system’s lifetime.


We offer a complete portfolio of e-motor test systems (TS) in the areas of performance, NVH, EMC and durability, supporting you to develop e-drive systems with highest performance and highest quality standards.

Performance Test System

The AVL E-Motor TS™ Performance test system is the right choice to validate the design of any e-motor concepts. Additional software tools and specific measurement devices support you in order to tune your e-motor and analyze all e-motor functions. With help of a climatic chamber thermal investigations are possible as well.

NVH Test System

We provide three different standard NVH TS solutions designed according the standard ISO3745. The high-end solution with less than 50 dB(A) noise level at 20.000 rpm is the first choice for premium customers. Also, a mobile version for usage in existing chambers is available in our portfolio.

EMC Test System

To measure e-drive systems for their EMC emission or stress them with immunity tests, EMC test systems are necessary. We deliver our AVL E-Motor TS™ EMC either as a mobile or as a fixed version, both are designed according to the standard CISPR25.

Durability Test System

To ensure the lifetime of e-drive systems, our powerful AVL E-Motor TS™ Durability supports the validation of robustness in shortest time in order to keep the time to market goal.

Production Test System

AVL End of Line, Quality Assurance and Conformity of Production Test Systems highly secure the production process and the quality of all your produced E-Motors. From manual rigging to fully automatized E-Motor handling with robots our solutions cover takt time requirements of less than two minutes.
