Twinsburg, Ohio, September 14, 2020: Mustang Advanced Engineering (MAE) designs and manufactures made-to-order test stands for various electric vehicles (EV’s), including powerpacks and electric axle testing projects. MAE recently delivered a test stand to Proterra, a leading manufacturer of zero-emission heavy-duty EV’s based in California, for end-of-line and/or research and development testing of Proterra’s electric powerpacks. The system MAE delivered included a 350 HP regenerative AC dynamometer, 350-700 VDC programmable battery simulator, a cooling circuit with chiller and digital controller, vibration measurement, data acquisition, and MAE’s TestCell software package tailored to meet the customer’s unique needs.
The Scope of the Project
For Proterra’s South Carolina facility, MAE designed and built a test stand that tests their electrified powerpacks. These tests are under fully loaded conditions and every powerpack is tested prior to being installed in the vehicle to insure the most stringent quality standards are met prior to the product being delivered to Proterra’s customers. MAE provided the capability to flash the powerpacks with the appropriate firmware and test it under in-use conditions. “MAE specializes in making test stands that are made to clients’ specific needs, and the Proterra powerpack test stand demonstrates this expertise. There is no project that is too big or too small for the MAE team” said David Ganzhorn, V.P. Sales.
MAE’s EV powerpack end of line test solutions provided tests that are:
• Fully loaded testing of powerpacks by a regenerative AC dynamometer
• Flashing powerpacks with the appropriate firmware based upon model/barcode
• MAE’s TestCell software package configured to Proterra’s requirements
