Three smart programmable load and source (SPLS) modules suitable for both AC and DC applications were delivered. The three 33 kW SPLS modules is integrated in a more-electric aircraft test bench installed at Labinal Power (Safran). The test bench is used by aerospace companies to experiment with various electrical loads and sources and to test aircraft grid control and monitoring strategies.

A flexible E-machine test bench was realized for Advanced Electromagnetics. The bench allows different motor types to be set up and controlled. Energy is recirculated over the DC bus to minimize energy consumption. Additional voltage and current measurements and Digital and analog IO is provided to connect additional sensors such as torque, temperature etc. This allows the test engineers to log all data in a single, synchronized datalogger.
