Reliable development of refrigerant compressors with IPEcomp test benches

The development of electrical compressors (eCOMPs) plays a significant role in the field of new drive technologies because an efficient energy management is crucial for electric and hybrid vehicles.

eCOMP-driven HVAC systems operate independently of the drive train. This allows continuous air conditioning and heating during the stop times of vehicles with automatic start-stop systems. In order to save valuable battery power and provide a maximum range, the refrigerant system can be operated in the air-conditioning mode as well as the energy-saving heating (heat pump) mode. In addition to the high climatic comfort in the passenger compartment, dual refrigerant circuits offer an optimized thermal management for the high voltage battery. The reliability and high durability of the eCOMP as core component of the HVAC system has to be tested under various ambient conditions.

IPEcomp is the ideal test bench to validate all types of automotive refrigerant compressors. It offers various functions and predefined test procedures.

  • Matrix testing procedures
  • Life cycle endurance testing (Raffer)
  • Oil Circulation Ratio (OCR) measurement
  • Vibration testing incl. gas pressure pulsation
  • Acoustic measurements (NVH)
  • Temperature simulations from -30 (-40) ... 120 °C in the test chamber

IPEcomp test benches provide highly precise and repeatable results. The tests can be configured and controlled with the software IPEmotion.
