Making Measurements That Keep EVs and HEVs on the Road

Axiom Test Equipment Blog: Making Measurements That Keep EVs and HEVs on the Road - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment recently posted a new blog entry titled, "Making Measurements That Keep EVs and HEVs on the Road." Electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are gaining in popularity; seemingly as they gain in the range of each battery charge. Both EVs and HEVs rely on high-voltage batteries and an electric motor; in addition, an HEV is aided by a gasoline engine with its own fuel supply. Both types of vehicles still employ lower-voltage batteries and electrical systems for lights, radios, electric windows, and other voltage-driven functions. Of course, among the key functions in an EV or HEV is charging the high-voltage ...
