E-mobility: together for the drives of tomorrow.

E-mobility is the future. The automotive industry is investing much in the development of alternative drivetrains. We support them in this endeavour. As an established partner in the testing of drivetrains of electric or hybrid vehicles, ATESTEO offers all relevant test benches and services in the field of emobility from one source.

For years, we have conducted tests of electric motors, inverters, additional electric components, and hybrid engines. Our test benches are so multifunctional that we are able to adapt the services of our range of tests to the parameters of electric and hybrid drivetrains at any time. Additionally, with virtual test benches, we create the possibility of testing complex hybrid engines during the early phases of production. Special test benches with battery simulators, e-motor test benches, hybrid powertrain test benches, and NVH test benches for hybrid drive systems and electric motors complement our drivetrain testing offering in the field of e-mobility.

Our drivetrain testing competence for your e-mobility projects

E-mobility: your advantage at ATESTEO

So that all drivetrain components of an electric or hybrid vehicle may be developed in parallel, ATESTEO provides you prompt selective and realistic testing of your electric and mechanical drivetrain components. By doing so, we ensure that components work flawlessly before being
assembled, and also provide you with the opportunity to optimise components during the development stage.

Everything for your e-mobility testing.

Electric and hybrid vehicles make high demands on the transmission. Besides energy and environmental efficiency, driving pleasure is a key focus for consumers. To accomplish all these things, the drivetrain requires a maximum degree of efficiency. Using precise measurements, we
assist you to identify and increase the degree of efficiency.

Current range of test bench services for e-mobility

To be able to support you effectively in the development of your drivetrains and prototypes, we permanently adapt our range of our e-mobility services at the test bench to the changing demands caused by rapid technical developments. Many well-known developers trust our competence in testing in the field of e-mobility. For many years, we have conducted tests related to the durability and efficiency of the drivetrain and its components on electric and hybrid vehicles at test benches.

High competence in e-mobility testing

Our electric motor test benches may be employed flexibly at installed engine power values between 320 kW and 2,700 kW for testing vehicle drive systems. For testing hybrid drives as well, ATESTEO offers state-of-the-art test benches that realistically simulate the operation of the powertrain. Following the same principle as the test benches for drivetrain models with electric and combustion engines, complex tests to analyse the properties of transmissions and hybrid systems are conducted.

Our range of services in the field of e-mobility.

To test electric motors and inverters, ATESTEO undertakes at the test bench all testing services with respect to mechanical, electric, and thermal properties of the drivetrain components. In addition, we provide services to collect technical data on component cooling and overload capability of the torque characteristic, as well as on sound emissions and axial-radial vibrations. To analyse the characteristics of the transmission and hybrid system, complex tests are carried out at the test benches.

E-mobility drivetrain test benches with electric motor drive

When owing to ever shorter development times, combustion engines are developed simultaneously with the drivetrain, our test benches assist you in testing the drivetrain and transmission in a very early stage of development, even without a completed engine. This delivers you valuable performance data and reduces your prototype costs.

E-mobility testing at ATESTEO: transmission tests at test benches for many needs

Test individual elements or your complete drivetrain without a combustion engine at the electric motor test benches at ATESTEO. At installed engine power values between 320 kW and 2,700 kW, drivetrain tests for smaller passenger cars, heavy construction vehicles, and high-speed trains are possible. As the leading drivetrain testing specialist, we have the goal of conducting testing on all types of drivetrains. Our test benches are thus so flexibly laid out that we can carry out every sort of test. Whether you need an endurance test of a newly developed PTU (power take-off unit) in connection with a manual transmission, or the efficiency of axle drives is to be measured, ATESTEO provides the solution for every one of your testing challenges.

Our electric motor test benches may be employed flexibly at installed engine power values between 320 kW and 2,700 kW for testing vehicle drive systems. Possibilities range from transmission tests for smaller cars to heavy construction vehicles and even high-speed trains. The tests can take place in a quasi-stationary or dynamic fashion. It is even possible to replicate on the test bench original measurement data from the vehicle, to model geographic data from your test tracks, or to perform a block profile. Individual elements of your drivetrain as well as the entire drivetrain without combustion engine can be tested on our test benches. Hybrid and electric vehicle applications are supplied with direct current during operation.

Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Schmitz
CEO/Chairman of the Management Board

“Everywhere in the world, more and more consumers are turning to e-mobility. To meet this demand, the number of transmissions for electric vehicles is growing rapidly in the EU, in North America, and in the Asian-Pacific Region. We recognized the trend toward low-emission and emission-free drivetrains early on, having expanded our range of testing services accordingly.

Since 2008, ATESTEO has conducted tests and simulations of electric and hybrid drivetrains for well-known vehicle and component developers. Already, more than 25% of all drivetrain tests at ATESTEO are tests of hybrid or e-drivetrains. Through years of competence and specialisation in this field, we have a view to the future, propelling the automotive industry forward in its development of drivetrains for electric and hybrid vehicles.”
