The globe is embracing electric automobiles like no other. Batteries, traction motors, and power electronics are the new innovation hotspots in electric powertrains. Solid-state electronics used for power conversion and control are known as power electronics.
The onboard charger, an AC-DC rectifier to charge the battery; the inverter, a high-power DC to AC converter for the battery to power the traction motor; and a DC-DC converter for the high-voltage traction battery to power a low-voltage battery are the three main components of the charging system for electric vehicles.
The primary inverter, which runs at the highest power and promotes traction, is the most important of all. Any increases in efficiency here increase driving distance without affecting battery capacity.
The Europe EV Power Electronics Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
A strategic partnership for the joint development and production of power electronics in a so-called “One Box” for electric and hybrid powertrains was announced by Vitesco Technologies, a top global manufacturer of modern drive technologies, and Renault Group, a significant player in the automotive industry.
In accordance with this agreement, the parties will work together to develop a power electronics concept that is distinct from others on the market. Each partner will contribute their expertise and experience.
Vitesco Technology will contribute its “best in class” technologies and processes, while Renault Group will contribute its expertise in electric and hybrid vehicles.
The objective is to create a central electronic device that houses the inverter, on-board charger, and DC-DC converter all in one housing.
For the development of Renault’s future cars, notably in terms of passenger capacity and comfort, this “One Box” idea will also offer a hitherto unheard-of gain in compactness and mass.
The different fundamental component combinations and assembly will be adjusted to the various electric and hybrid powertrain types.
