The global shift towards sustainable transportation has seen a surge in the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) over recent years. As these eco-friendly automobiles become increasingly on our roads, the electric vehicle annual inspection becomes pivotal for EV owners and the broader automotive industry.

The battery is the heart of an electric vehicle. From research mostly EVS accidents by the battery and electronic parts so its crucial to check this system.

We have a system for checking the battery, motor, and electronic part. The EV inspection equipment mainly 2 parts. 1 part is charging for 3 minutes to get the battery status, another part is running vehicle for 5 minutes to get the motor, and electronic parts status.

Battery Health:

  • State of Health Testing: indicates the overall health and capacity of the battery. This test is often performed using specialized diagnostic tools that measure the battery’s actual capacity compared to its original capacity. It helps assess degradation and overall performance.
  • Battery Management System (BMS) Analysis: The BMS continuously monitors and manages the battery pack. Analyzing BMS data provides insights into cell voltages, temperatures, charge/discharge rates, and overall battery health.
  • Load Testing: This involves discharging the battery under controlled conditions to measure its voltage and capacity. However, complex battery management systems in EVs may restrict direct access to perform load testing without specialized equipment.

Charging System:

  • Charging Infrastructure Inspection: Visually inspecting the charging cables, connectors, and ports for any signs of damage, corrosion, or wear is the initial step. This ensures the safety and proper functioning of the charging system.
  • Charging Voltage and Current Testing: Using charing equipment for 3 minutes, measure the voltage and current output from the charging station to ensure it aligns with the manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Charge Point Communication: Test the communication between the vehicle and the charging point to verify proper interaction and data exchange during the charging process.

Electronics:

  • Diagnostic Scan Tools: These tools (OBD) connect to the vehicle’s onboard diagnostics port and run comprehensive scans of the electronic systems. They identify error codes, malfunctions, or issues within the various electronic components.

Testing the battery health, charging system, and electronics in an electric vehicle are complex. It request the special equipment to do the test.
