The ECL offers several benefits:
• Testing of high voltage, high power components
• Analyze future electrical power generation and control technologies for the Army
• Provides power quality, transients, and harmonic distortion
• Variable coolant temperature and flow rate over a large range
• (Future) Certified and accredited testing to ISO17025
• Thermal chamber for component level testing
• MIL-PRF-GCS600 testing
• Resistive and Capacitive load banks to simulate a wide variety of load types
• Pressure testing of coolant cooled components using high sensitivity pressure transducers
