Keysight Technologies announced that Chongqing Vehicle Testing Research Institute in China has adopted Keysight’s battery charging and discharging test equipment to verify battery characteristics in electric vehicles to advance the development of e-mobility.

As the development of batteries as the core energy source of electric vehicles has accelerated, major battery companies and automotive OEMs have turned to rigorous testing including design verification (DV), standard operating procedure (SOP), and production verification (PV) phase verification to ensure high mileage and safety. Verification of the charging and discharging characteristics of power batteries as well as their performance has become an indispensable step in the development of energy efficient and reliable electric vehicles.

Keysight and Chongqing Vehicle Testing and Research Institute will provide testing services including battery cell, module and system-level testing throughout the battery lifecycle to ensure they meet the requirements of electric vehicle energy storage systems.
