Laboratory resources and researcher developed models allow for full system HIL tests to run in real-time while also processing various component commands, safety checks, and data acquisition. A large walk-in environmental chamber and 125/250kW power processing machines support a wide range of testing scenarios.
Education is a fundamental component of the laboratory and university. Every project involves students at some level, either through employment as research assistants or class lectures and publications.
