Home » The Chroma 17020 Battery Pack test system
Chroma’s 17020 is a high precision test system specifically designed for battery modules and pack tests. Accurate sources and measurements ensure the test quality that is suitable to perform repetitive and reliable tests that are crucial for battery modules / packs, for both incoming or outgoing inspections as well as capacity, performance, production and qualification testing.
Chroma’s 17020 system architecture offers regenerative discharge designed to recycle the electric energy sourced by the battery module either back to the channels in the system performing a charging function or to the utility mains.
The 17020 system is equipped with multiple independent channels to support dedicated charge / discharge tests, on multiple battery modules / packs, each with discrete test characteristics. The channels can easily be paralleled to support higher current requirements. This feature provides the ultimate flexibility between high channel count and high current testing.
The system has flexible programming functions and may be operated with Chroma’s powerful Battery Pro software. Battery Pro utilizes the system to create cycling tests from basic charge or discharge to complex drive cycle testing for each channel or channel groups. A thermal chamber control can be integrated into a profile and triggered by time or test results yielding a dynamic profile. Battery Pro’s features allows quick and intuitive test development to eliminate the need of tedious scripting or programming by a software engineer.
There are multiple safety features including Battery Polarity Check, Over Voltage Protection, Over Current Protection check and Over Temperature Protection to ensure protected charge / discharge testing.
In the unlikely event of power or computer communication loss, the data is securely stored in the system, on a non-volatile memory, protecting against potential data loss and allowing for continuous flow after restart.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
