Dynamometer power bench (Dyno-Drive)



Dyno-Drive is a platform for the characterization of thermal, electric and hybrid traction chains, as well as the experimental validation of control laws specifically developed for the energy management of powertrains.

Dyno-Drive brings together a set of equipment that allows the emulation of an approval cycle monitoring (NEDC, WLTP...) with precision and repeatability ensured by a driving robot installed at the driver’s station of the vehicle to be tested.

This GreenMot driving robot completes the dynamometer power bench with hubs (550kW) capable of loading the driving wheels of the vehicle, according to a complete road law: ascent and descent, simulation of inertia among others.
With its 90kW battery simulator, Dyno-Drive makes it possible to test and characterize 100% electric vehicles, freeing them from range constraints.
