Future testing solutions for the aerospace and aviation industry.

While reducing carbon emissions in aviation is a major challenge of today, leveraging electrification and fuel cell applications is the key solution in the field. From small electric aircraft, to vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL), to urban air mobility vehicles, the range of developments underway is broad. But so are the challenges. As a legacy automotive company, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in powertrain testing that matches today's requirements. As a result, we are well equipped to meet the challenges of aerospace validation and testing.

Designing and developing all battery electric aircraft is no small feat. To lift a vehicle into the air, you have to deal with and overcome the force of gravity. Conventional approaches have taken a long time to develop, and aviation engineering has a rich history. Learning from the past has isolated two major challenges for the future. One is that batteries must be energy dense and able to withstand heavy discharge. The other is powerful and fast yet lightweight electric motors to power the take-off and landing of the aircraft.

Battery Test Systems

Modern electric powertrains place high demands on batteries. They have to provide high power and energy for a long time and handle extremely dynamic charging and discharging processes without any problems. To support battery development tasks, we provide the right tools with AVL Battery Test Systems. These "plug-and-play" solutions are stand-alone or containerized battery testbeds that can be delivered as a turnkey solution, ready to use, without the need for further customization. It enables fast and rigorous development and validation for any type of battery and ensure a high return on investment.

E-Motor Test Systems

Drivetrains for aircraft and other airborne vehicles can use a variety of electric motor technologies, such as permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), asynchronous motors (ASM), or electrically excited synchronous motors (EESM). Add to this new inverter technologies such as Silicon Carbide (SiC), and the complexity of developing and testing e-powertrain systems becomes apparent. AVL has a broad portfolio of dedicated e-motor test systems, software, tools and processes to test and validate these advanced e-powertrain systems in the shortest possible time while ensuring highest quality standards.

AVL Inverter TS_2
Inverter Test Systems

The inverter is very complex, and its behavior and handling influence the vehicle experience significantly. Therefore, it needs to be tested and developed without further influences of other components. That is why a dedicated test system (TS) is required which enables the testing of the inverter – independently from the e-motor and already in an early development phase. Such an optimized testing environment results in an efficient verification process and shorter time needed compared to the testing of the Unit Under Test (UUT) in a real-world prototype vehicle. → Learn more

Testbed Automation with AVL PUMA 2™

Our leading automation system is easily extendable to suit modern testing methods and ensures consistent and transparent testbed configuration. AVL PUMA 2™ provides an easy way to configure testbed parameters while offering the unique opportunity of immediate validation. When used in the office, AVL PUMA 2™ enables a considerable part of the testbed configuration work to be frontloaded. This reduces testbed downtime and maximizes the output and efficiency of complex calibration tasks. → Learn more
