We have in-house test benches for measuring individual components as well as entire drive systems.

Depending on client requirements, performance data for power electronics, controlling electrical machines, and the entire power train are set out in detail.

Among other things, the torques, outputs, component temperatures, vibrations, coolant temperatures, and throughflow can be continuously recorded during systems operation.

Test benches for electrical machines up to 500 kW with liquid cooling circuits from -25 °C to +120 °C are available.

Software function for machine and system control is also optimized and verified on the test benches. Extensive measurement and testing experience allows comprehensive coverage of development results.

We use a special test bench with stable containment for very-high-speed electrical machines, e.g., flywheel storages, during the development and test phase.

If necessary, the test bench environment can be equipped or converted for specific project requirements.


Compact Dynamics is exclusive FIA supplier for the hybrid system from 2022 to 2024 and we're still on board until 2026!

The WRC in South America - the WRC Rally Chile Bio Bio hosts the port city of Concepción from September 28 - October 01, 2023.  The roads in the surrounding forests are technically challenging, fast and gently rolling. The more open stages offer impressive views of the Pacific Ocean. We wish all teams good luck and success!

Compact Dynamics supports FIA and competitors with 3 trackside support engineers
