BatControl

Software for running tests with batteries.

General Overview

BatControl

With a look to the growing market of e-Mobility and the increasing demand for PV energy storage, testing and cycling of real battery systems is of great importance. Real tests are the key to authentic ratings for a given system under given circumstances.

Testing and cycling of batteries with the aid of REGATRON bidirectional DC power supplies is of double benefit:

a) The discharge energy is not lost, but reinjected to the grid with optimum performance
b) REGATRON BATControl Application software supports the test engineer by a number of
praxis-proven tools

By this, a given test procedure is set by a few klicks and may last hours or even days.

BATControl Software offers:

  • Possibility to define charge (and discharge) algorithms
  • Possibility to run driving cycles (own or according to already defined standards)
  • Possibility to replay previously recorded discharge/charge data
  • Possibility to undergo the battery with the real electric load created by a driving test - just inside your lab...

BatControl allows selecting and running so-called "BatScripts". These scripts automate the otherwise manually given commands to the TopCon power supply. Scripts allow running the commands according to a timeline; hence easily let the user define aspects like "charge that battery with 8 Amps for 90 minutes”.

BATControl at a glance

  • Implementation of charge and/or discharge routines, access to internal charge counter
  • Burdens the battery according to given drive cycles (e.g. FTP75, ECE/EUDC)
  • Discharges/charges the battery according to recorded data (record & replay)
  • Automatic execution of sequences of TopCon power supply commands
  • Possibility to run driving cycles (own or according to already defined standards)
  • Possibility to replay previously recorded discharge/charge data
