When the Team Bath Racing Electric team approached ETPS, they needed a battery test solution to stay at the front of the pack.
Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe) were looking to retain their title as the 'top electric team in the UK'. They were also hoping to power their way to victory in the prestigious Formula Student Electric China, after entering the competition for the first time.
To accelerate development, ETPS provided TBRe with a 60V electronic load. This was used to verify the team's simulations by discharging subpacks of cylindrical cells, ensuring that everything went to plan throughout the building process. We also provided them with a second 500V load. The higher voltage range meant that the team were able to complete battery testing, once their race pack had been fully assembled.
Elizabeth Maclennan, head of TBRe remarked: "Having not one, but two loads lent to us by ETPS during the entirety of the Formula Student Series has been essential. Without both of these DC loads, we wouldn't have been able to consistently test our battery during critical intervals of the development process."
Maclennan added: "ETPS have been an amazing sponsor and incredibly easy to work with. Throughout the whole process, from start to finish, they have been extremely responsive and helpful. With the company's help, we managed to retain our title as top electric team in the UK. We'll definitely look to work with them again next season."
