AVL SET is a member of the AVL Group and a leading global supplier of inverter testing systems. The company’s main focus is on smart power electronics that operate at very high switching speeds and thereby provide close-to-analog amplifier characteristics. To meet the demands of development-related tasks and functional safety requirements, a new testing method was established and used in 2003 for the first time: a virtual electric motor replaces the conventionally required mechanical loading system, thus providing a complete testing environment in a lab. The tool’s testing scope ranges from auxiliary units to high-performance drive inverters. AVL SET’ areas of expertise are e-motor emulators, inverter test beds, virtual e-motors and power hardware-in-the-loop systems.
