12+12V and 12+48V hybridisation: a modular approach and transmission impacts
by Dr Olivier Coppin
Among the various hybridization levels, the 12+12 volts affordable architecture represents the basic architecture allowing the benefits of hybridization, thanks to the energy recovery during braking. The 12+48V electrical architecture is an easy way to enhance 12+12V functionalities and enter deeper in the hybrid application field. Continue reading

Optimization of Transmission Electrical Oil Pumps Using Model-based System Engineering Techniques.
by Oscar Sarmiento
Electrical Oil Pump Modular Design Platform – Simulation-based Optimization Method for EOP Design – Co-Simulation Framework for Parameter Sensitivity Analysis – Approach for Assessment Integration Level based on KPIs
This paper explores how the Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) framework can be applied to the optimization of an Electrical Oil Pump (EOP). MBSE creates an architecting framework that supports trades across performance, cost and realization. Continue reading
DESIGN AND TECHNIC – A PERFECT MERGE
INTELLIGENT ROTAX GEAR BOX – FOCUSING ON FUTURE REQUIREMENTS
The Rotax 1330 ACE in-line 3 cylinder engine with a semi automatic 6 speed transmission, actuated by a hydraulic logic and an electro-hydraulically modulated clutching system is BRP-Rotax’ latest development in the Can-Am on-road segment. Both systems are controlled by a Transmission Control Module (TCM) where BRP-Rotax defined the software architecture and functions. This intelligent gearbox uses off-the-shelf automotive standard components for sensors and actuators. With the result of fulfilling the functional needs by having a cost efficient product. The hydraulic control unit, assembled in the gearbox module, represents one of BRP-Rotax’ manufacturing core competences.
Schaeffler China Plug-In P2 Hybrid DCT Concept Car
by Dipl.-Ing. Bertrand Pennec
This paper describes the implementation of a plug-in hybrid powertrain into an existing mass production conventional Chinese car. The resulting demonstrator vehicle, the “Schaeffler China Concept Car” (SCCC) combines a 3-cylinder 1.0 L combustion engine (ICE), a 6-speed dry Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and the highly modular Schaeffler P2 Hybrid System.
