Announcing the LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit

Download the new version today!

 

The LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit release is all about making the EV Power Test IP more efficient, intelligent, and easier to use for Automotive Power Electronics Test Engineers. The release adds cycle-based analysis even at MS/s/ch sampling rates, application-specific triggering options, and built-in examples to handle everyday test needs. The new built-in examples give power electronics engineers applications tailored to their needs of measuring, analyzing (by cycle), calculating efficiency, and logging all results.

What's New?

LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit New Features

Power Analysis IP for Electric Vehicle Test – More efficient, intelligent, and easier to use.

 

3-Phase Power Measurements

  • Significant analysis IP performance increase for continuous data acquisition, analysis, and logging at MS/s/ch speeds
  • Application-specific, flexible triggering options
    • Triggering on current waveform or rotational sensor data
  • Customizable cycle-based analysis, trigger analysis based on:
    • Analog signal level
    • Angular reference
  • Ready to run examples for data collection, cycle-based analysis, and logging at high-speed data rates.

 

Additional Considerations

  • Connect LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit IP to the data collected by an RM-26999 system to build a powerful and flexible power electronics test system.

F.A.Q.

  • What is the difference between the Full and Professional Editions of the Toolkit?
    • The Electric Vehicle Test IP is included in both Full and Professional Editions of the LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit.
    • The LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit Professional Edition should be purchased by customers interested in Advanced Smart Grid Device Design With NI CompactRIO. The Professional edition includes the phasor measurement unit (PMU) and Protection IP toolkits for this application area.
  • Can the LabVIEW 2020 Electrical Power Toolkit measure the efficiency of power electronics devices?
    • Yes! This is the most common ask for IP in these applications. Efficiency is built at the heart of the new examples for the 2020 version.
