Real Life + Modeling: The Holistic Approach

When we are called upon to conduct testing we combine energy and performance modeling with real-life conditions that we create in our lab. If we are testing a motor and drive unit, we will create the power quality conditions that unit will see in a manufacturing plant or other application. If we are testing a water heater, we will create the common usage pattern and conditions it will see in a home or commercial application.
