To advance traction systems for electric vehicles in the project “New Energy Vehicle eDriver”, integrated system applications company Zhuzhou CRRC Times Electric Co., Ltd. (TEC) is developing new electric drives, including efficient controllers.
TEC is committed to improving the reliability, high integration, and high safety of motor controllers and powertrain platform products for the market. The data management software SYNECT is used in the development of a new generation of three-in-one powertrain platform products.
Together, SYNECT and AutomationDesk make up the Test Solution Package (TSP) for automated testing. The role of SYNECT is to manage and automate the testing process, the daily test work, and tools. TSP provides the developers with full traceability from requirements to test results.
With the help of TSP, new drives and controllers were successfully validated and promptly brought to market.
The development process at TEC features the following tasks:
- Simplifies the management of test engineering and implements the closed-loop management of test requirements, test cases, and test results.
- Implements the orderly iteration of test engineering development and the orderly transfer of test work. Even if data is damaged due to accidents, it can be restored.
- Lays a solid foundation for the traceability of the testing process and regression testing.
The dSPACE tool chain provides systematic support for our development and testing work. The Test Solution Package of SYNECT and AutomationDesk facilitates our closed-loop management of test projects and helps us successfully develop high power density, high integration, and strong market competitiveness of motor controller products.
With the help of SYNCECT, TEC successfully validated new drives and controllers and quickly brought them to market.
