Although the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have unfortunately delayed the integration of the ETCR kits into the racing cars by six months; a few days ago, Hyundai Motorsport were able to complete their first integration of a Veloster N ETCR car at WAE, under the supervision of WSC Group’s ETCR Technical Director Gergeli Bári.


 

 

 

Activities included four days at the WAE workshop for the integration of the electrical systems and three days of shakedown and calibration testing at Great Tew circuit.


The integration was performed with the help of an ETCR lab-car built by WAE that was used to replicate and resolve any issues that may possibly occur during the race car integration process.





 
The static integration @ WAE





Static Integration was carried out in two phases: Mechanical and Electrical, and followed a bespoke test plan developed by WAE for ETCR.





Mechanical activities included:



- Installation of the battery into the chassis

- Connection and bleeding of the cooling system

- Installation of the kit components (Vehicle Control Module, Charging Module, High Voltage cables and dielectric coolant) and connection of the equipotential bonding network

 

Electrical activities included:



- Connection and testing of looms

- Loading of software and firmware onto the modules

- Full sensor and switch function checking


- Module calibration checking including vital testing of the E-Stop


- Functionality checks on the DCDC converter, first activation of inverters and initial running of the drive train. Finally culminating with a battery charge


- All checks included detailed data logging ensuring the system’s safety

 

All the E-Kit components – MAGELEC propulsion power train, BrightLoop DCDC12L converter and Marelli Power Box – performed well, as expected.
