Collins Aerospace Selects NH Research Test Solutions for The Grid Electric Power Systems Lab
By: NH Research
Collins Aerospace is making a $50 million investment to create the industry's most advanced laboratory for testing high-power electrical components and systems which will redefine the future of electric flight. The Grid will enable the future of aircraft electrification and is expected to begin initial operations later this year.
"At NHR, we focus on developing world-class test solutions that enable electrification. We are proud to be selected as a key partner by Collins in redefining aerospace. This revolutionary development lab will advance and accelerate technology development by enabling test capability for high-power and high-voltage designs. We are excited to help achieve this vision with our advanced test solutions and dedicated support team," said Pete O'Brien,
Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NHR.
NHR will supply the high-voltage DC power farm for The Grid. The company's 9300 regenerative, bi-directional DC source can be used as either a load or power source to recreate an aircraft environment for testing. The 9300 addresses a range of aerospace test solutions from individual components such as batteries and power electronics, to entire electric propulsion systems. NHR's technology approach provides the speed, accuracy and safety necessary to emulate real-world conditions and optimize testing.
