The Electrified Propulsion Research Centre can be set up to calibrate, measure and test a range of vehicle including ICE, hybrid and fully electric vehicle technologies:
- High performance EV
- High performance hybrid
- High performance ICE
EV technology provides high performance vehicles with dynamic capabilities that have previously been unachievable. Instant motor torque available from standstill, with excellent delivery to the road surface through traction control, has the potential to deliver outstanding vehicle performance.
However, the design, implementation and optimisation of these systems is extremely complex. The EPRC provides a comprehensive test platform that is capable in all these respects: hardware selection and integration, control system development and total system validation.
