HORIBA'S VIRTUAL BATTERY SOLUTION BRINGS TRUE EMULATION CAPABILITY TO THE HYBRID, ELECTRIC VEHICLE, AND BATTERY DEVELOPMENT MARKET

 

Ann Arbor, MI, February 1, 2010 -

HORIBA's Virtual Battery Solution offers proven, reliable emulation of in-use life cycle conditions to reduce development costs, eliminate uncertainty, and speed vehicles to market.  While typical simulation solutions mimic basic charge and discharge events, Virtual Battery's advanced emulation approach offers vehicle, drive train, and battery developers the ability to truly replicate in-vehicle conditions including stress, battery age, battery pack parameters, and driving cycles as well as the environmental conditions necessary to predict actual battery behavior.

The advantage of Virtual Battery lies within five specialized, customizable battery models -- each built up from the cell level and calibrated specifically for vehicle applications.  Standard models include Lithium Ion, LiFePO4, NiMH, Lead Acid, and a new Ultra Capacitor model. A powerful Model Generator feature allows for easy creation of unique battery profiles, assuring maximum testing versatility and exceptional support of R&D activities.

 HORIBA addresses the need for flexible solutions in the evolving electric vehicle industry by offering Virtual Battery in two dynamic forms. Test facilities with existing battery cycling systems can add Virtual Battery on top of their existing hardware and software to seamlessly upgrade to advanced battery emulation. For hybrid, electric vehicle, and battery developers seeking a comprehensive approach, HORIBA offers Virtual Battery as a complete solution with optimal hardware, software and safety features to meet the needs of any facility or test application.
