Electronic Load Banks for Aerospace Applications

AEC's electronic load banks are designed to test aerospace generators in production and R&D environments. Unlike other electronic load products, our load banks use high performance control techinques and cutting-edge semiconductors to provide load waveforms with very low harmonic content. Other features include:

  • Output power up to 1+ MVA (custom levels available)
  • Seemless integration with AEC Test Stands and Dynamometers
  • Operate at higher power levels than the electrical distribution can handle by recirculating power within the dynamometer test stand
  • Small physical footprint compared to passive load banks
  • Continuously variable power, power factor
  • Efficiencies >90% - save on electrical costs
  • Remote control available (Fiber-optic, Modbus, CAN, etc.)

Dynamometers and Test Stands for Automotive and Aerospace Applications

Anderson Electric Controls, Inc. specializes in building custom high-performance dynamometers and test stands. These systems have been used across the world for testing hybrid-electric and electric vehicle inverters, engines, and transmissions, aerospace generators and starters, and many other applications where performance is critical. We build test stands that can operate in etiher R&D or production environments.

Unlike other companies, AEC utilizes state-of-the-art electric motors in order to provide direct-drive solutions for both test stand and dynamometer applications. This eliminates loud and expensive gearboxes, and provides increased performance and efficiencies for high speed and high tolerance applications.

Our dynes and test stands can be provided with full-featured software for remote control and automated testing (LabVIEW-based), or can be integrated into your existing software with our .NET or LabVIEW based drivers.
