Light-duty vehicle test cell

 

​We provide a comprehensive research facility for light-duty vehicle emissions, energy use and fuel economy testing with cooling the test cell down to -30 °C.  Our single-roller AC/DC dynamometer with maximum speed of 160 km/h and power absorption of 100 kW, can simulate vehicle inertias up to 2500 kg.

Measurements of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are also catered with fast, multi-channel instruments. A multi-standard rapid charger (36 kW) is available for fast battery recharging.
For exhaust emissions normal variable-dilution CVS and bag sampling is available, and on-line modal analysis is also possible.

Several non-regulated exhaust species can be detected e.g. with wet chemistry sampling and chromatographic analysis or on-line with an FTIR instrument.
Particulate mass measurements (PM), as well as number count (CPC), and size-classification by electric low-pressure impactor (ELPI).

We have even accreditation to perform testing for EU type-approval purposes.

​​For exhaust emissions measurements normal variable-dilution CVS and bag sampling is available, and on-line modal analysis is also offered.

Our AVL AMA i60 is capable of performing emissions analysis for even the latest and cleanest EURO 6 cars.
Several non-regulated exhaust species can also be detected e.g. with wet chemistry sampling and chromatographic analysis or on-line with an FTIR instrument.

Particulate mass measurements (TPM), as well as number count (CPC), and size-classification by electric low-pressure impactor (ELPI) are possible.

​​Our new facilities for battery technology R&D have been built during 2012-2013.

Testing capabilities range from single cell tests to modules and full-sized battery systems in different environment and loading conditions.
