A regenerative battery pack test system is a battery simulation device used for testing the functionality, lifespan, efficiency, and general electrical characteristics of battery pack components. Battery pack test systems simulate electrical usage in electric vehicles, defense equipment, grids, and other systems and equipment that use battery packs. A battery pack carries battery modules, connectors, and other electrical components. Regenerative battery pack test systems recycle the energy from the battery back into the charging system, saving the tester on energy costs. Battery test systems can be configured in a series to deliver a custom voltage, power density, or capacity.
When choosing a battery pack test system, look for flexible testers that offer precision, speed, and modularity, along with battery emulation and regenerative capabilities. Make sure your battery pack tester can perform standard power performance, capacity, resistance, and other electrical characteristic measurements. Advanced systems will also offer features like battery transient analysis and test software designed to streamline the creation of reports.
Renting a regenerative battery pack test system is ideal due to the many complications associated with battery module/pack tests. Researching, preparing, and operating the equipment can take a long time, meaning having the technical expertise of a rental company can help save you time and money. Battery pack testing is also different for each application; purchasing one tester may be a waste of money if your future tests differ in their goals. Lastly, renting is of course cheaper, with high-end battery test systems going for six figures and beyond.
