Engine Testing: Electrical, Hybrid, IC Engine and Power Storage Testing and Test Facilities, Fifth Edition  covers the requirements of test facilities dealing with e-vehicle systems and different configurations and operations. Chapters dealing with the rigging and operation of Units Under Test (UUT) are updated to include electric motor-based systems, test cell services and thermo-dynamics. Control module and system testing using advanced, in-the-Loop (XiL) methods are described, including powertrain component integrated simulation and testing. All other chapters dealing with test cell design, installation, safety and use together with the cell support systems in IC engine testing are updated to reflect current developments and research.

Key Features

  • Covers multiple technical disciplines for anyone required to design, modify or operate an automotive powertrain test facility
  • Provides tactics on the development of electrical and hybrid powertrains and energy storage systems
  • Presents coverage of the housing and testing of automotive battery systems in addition to the use of ‘virtual’ testing in the form of "x-in-the-loop’ throughout the powertrain’s development and test life


Automotive engineers; Test facility managers; Engine and component designers; Test engineers; Lab technicians, and Emissions technicians
