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

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

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.
