To advance traction systems for electric vehicles, Zhuzhou CRRC Times Electric Co., Ltd. (TEC) is developing new electric drives that use more efficient controllers.
TEC is committed to improving the reliability, integration, and safety of motor controllers and powertrain platform products. It uses the dSPACE data management software, SYNECT, in the development of an entirely new generation of three-in-one powertrain platforms.
The role of SYNECT is to manage and automate testing, actual test work, and tools. SYNECT gives the developers full traceability from the requirements to the test results.
SYNECT contributes a number of benefits to the development process at TEC:
- It simplifies the management of test engineering, and performs the end-to-end management of test requirements, test cases, and test results.
- It ensures the correct sequence of test engineering iterations and the proper transfer of test work. Even if data is accidentally damaged, it can be restored.
- It lays a solid foundation for the traceability of the testing process and for regression testing.
The dSPACE tool chain provides systematic support for our development and test work. SYNECT facilitates our end-to-end management of test projects and helps us successfully improve the reliability, integration, and competitiveness of our motor controller products.
