Advanced Testing of Traction Inverters by use of an E-motor Emulator - Closing a Test Gap

Author(s)/Presenter(s)

Dipl. Ing. Horst Hammerer studied electronic engineering in Ulm/Germany and Plymouth/GB. For more than ten years, he worked in the aerospace industry where he introduced new testing methods for airborne control computers. In the 1990’s he started his own business (later SET GmbH), which focuses on specialized test equipment, aerospace system simulation and avionics. Today, Mr. Hammerer is the CEO of SET Power Systems and now focuses on transferring well proven testing methodology from the aerospace industry into the automotive market in order to provide adequate test means for power electronic control units such as traction inverters.
