Different kinds of e-mobility would dominate mobility in the future. Electric vehicles (EVs) can be fitted with an inductive charging device for greater comfort and range. Test environments are required for the creation of inductive charging systems. In this paper a new designed test bench for an entire EV with an integrated inductive charging system is presented. Especially the testing of misalignment and the consideration of the vehicles underfloor can be realized very easy. With the aid of the new test bench, an 11kW prototype which was designed in a former paper will be measured and parameters will be compared with the designed parameters. Progress in testing the infrastructure would lead to a faster and easier development of new prototypes.
