Low voltage hybridization: How to lower costs, enhance CO2 benefits and transmission impacts

Low voltage hybridization: How to lower costs, enhance CO2 benefits and transmission impacts

Dr Olivier Coppin, Innovation & scientific development director, Valeo, France

By scalable solutions low voltage hybrid systems are real first steps in hybridization field. With the extended power field offered by 48V components, more vehicle segments and applications can have more benefits at a still limited over cost. We will introduce a new kind of hybridization which can address a lot of vehicle engine adaptation fields. Continue reading

Comprehensive E-Mobility – What is feasible and what makes sense?

Comprehensive E-Mobility – What is feasible and what makes sense?

Dr Karsten Wasiluk, Assistant Director Automotive & Transport, Schlegel und Partner, Germany

Electric driving range and fast-charging capability are the dominating topics in regard to electric mobility. Batteries with capacities of 100 kWh and more as well as charging with 350 kW at 800V are discussed. The goal of these developments is the perfect substitution of today’s combustion vehicles as the central means of private mobility for all purposes. Accordingly, common scenarios of future mobility propagate an asymptotic development towards pure electric mobility. Continue reading
