 Project objective

Driven by the soaring demand for hybrid and electric vehicles and the large investments in renewable energies, the soft magnetic materials market is expected to reach the €100 billion mark by 2026. Together with increasing number of stringent regulations (particularly in the EU), this growth is expected to drive the emergence of advanced material testing equipment for the automotive and semiconductor industries.

Accurate soft magnetic component testing is therefore becoming essential to select and develop efficient materials for key grid components and thus limit power loss and maximize system efficiency. However, there is still a clear lack of accurate measuring systems to test nonlinear high power magnetic components in DC voltage grids. This leads to a pressing market demand for innovative advanced quality testing solutions for these materials.

Bs&T’s innovative prototype, PulseTester, has been designed specifically to fill this technical gap. Using the latest thyristor semiconductor technology and implementing an innovative circuit measuring system, we have been able to establish a revolutionary and effective pulsed technique capable of characterizing inductive component for middle voltage soft magnetic components. We can measure energy loss of magnetic components with unparalleled accuracy, offering a unique advantage in comparison with current alternatives, for a much lower price.

With the final validation and full commercial release of PulseTester, we will help improve energy efficiency by facilitating adoption of highly optimized soft magnetic components in DC Smart Grids and renewable energy systems. We will gain a strategic advantage in the market, selling a cumulated 3,000 units by 2024 and raise our turnover by over €23 million. PulseTester will provide us increased visibility and allow us to consolidate our brand as a reference in the magnetic material testing market, leading to the creation of over 50 jobs in the EU across the value chain.
