    Overview


    With the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle segment growing at such an astonishing rate, Mustang developed the 2WD-AC/EC Hybrid Series to provide highly accurate and sophisticated HEV and EV R&D dynamometers that are both cost effective and loaded with advanced testing and simulation capabilities.

    The 2WD-500-AC/EC Hybrid Series Chassis Dynamometers were designed for pre-certification development and testing of 2WD hybrid and electric vehicles. The 2WD model is upgradeable to AWD in the field to enable testing AWD vehicles with wheelbase ranges from 88-inches to 118-inches. In AWD mode, a mechanically-linked roller system synchronizes the front and back roller speeds to simulate a flat, dry road condition. Synchronization, or linkage, insures that the front and rear rollers are always spinning at precisely the same road speed when in AWD Mode, thereby eliminating the possibility of activating a vehicle’s traction control system and insuring that a vehicle’s torque management system is operating under the assumption that the vehicle is not skidding, turning or slipping. Switching between 2WD and AWD is as simple as a click of the mouse.

    The 2WD-500-AC/EC Series incorporates an AC drive motor and a powerful air-cooled eddy current power absorption unit to provide the perfect combination of precision and economy. Systems are available with AC Motors ranging from 100-hp up to 600-hp and with one or two air-cooled eddy current PAUs for extended testing to meet the needs of your application.

    The 2WD-500-AC/EC Series provides a cost-effective design and enables quick development cycles for performing initial hybrid and electric vehicle calibrations, traction system motoring, regenerative braking and limited traction conditions using road load and federal drive cycles, electric power systems analysis, HEV/PHEV/EV controller development, efficiency testing, fuel consumption testing, and other complete vehicle or sub systems simulations.
