In order to keep track with technical development in electrical drive engineering, the Institute for Electrical Engineering decided to enforce the development of low power traction drive systems for small vehicles. The improvement of such systems determined the build up of an automated test stand. This test stand monitors the whole drive. A personal computer (PC) and measurement devices linked with several interfaces meet the demands regarding the data acquisition. Additionally the PC ensures reliability and security of the system in cooperation with a programmable logic controller (PLC). The software implementation features a modular concept, a standardized measurement protocol and a user friendly interface. The modular concept allows including further parts for future development. A standardized measurement protocol ensures easy data processing. A user friendly interface to keep training periods short.
Furthermore this measurement system is used for teaching LabView and electrical drive engineering. Future development will be a fully automated test stand control with access via internet.
