Webinar: EMINS pushes dynamometer-based testing to new limits


March 22, 2022
North America: 9am – 10am EST / 8am – 9am CST
Europe: 2pm – 3pm GMT / 3pm – 4pm CET

Presenting Electric Motor Inertia Simulation (EMINS) and the new age of testing with increased performance, capabilities and flexibility.

Dynamometers are critical test infrastructure that enable the development of technologies that power, move and connect the world. Electric dynamometers are a new and smarter option that leverage advancements in inertia simulation technology to improve engine testing operations.

MDS is hosting a webinar examining the features and benefits of electric dynamometers. Learn how EMINS – a next generation electric dynamometer system – increases engine testing capacity, capabilities, and flexibility. We’ll dive into the working principle, its various applications, how it solves common pain-points, and how it can benefit OEMs and test facility operators.

The core of EMINS technology is unparalleled performance and flexibility. With dynamic response 100x faster than industry standard technologies, test the capabilities of your engines without being limited by the capabilities of your load absorption. The underlying technology, using inertia simulation to enable this performance, builds your test capacity — allowing you to test more engines in a single driveline. EMINS focuses your investment in data-generating assets, centered around the underlying purpose of testing – the data.

Key Topics

  • Exploration of EMINS electric load absorption with inertia simulation capabilities
  • Benefits and features of EMINS, and where this solution works best.

Intended Audience:

  • Shaft-power test facility owners, operators, and maintenance personnel
  • Shaft-power engine manufacturers including turbomachinery and electric engines.

We recognize that testing needs are always unique. But no matter if you require the biggest test facility in the world, a small-scale lab, a facility retrofit or a new build, our webinar offers a wholistic systems engineering and integration approach that will appeal to all.
