“My method can bring electrical and mechanical engineers together!”

Interview with Young Drive Experts Award Winner Dr Marco Denk at the 15th CTI Getriebe Symposium 2016

Junction temperatures are a key parameter in power semiconductor modules and also in electric drives, so they affect transmission development work too. Marco Denk’s method makes it possible to measure the junction temperature during regular operation. This will reveal useful data from the temperature, such as semiconductor load or health.

12+12V and 12+48V hybridisation: a modular approach and transmission impacts

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
