The Internal combustion engine, the electric motor with power electronics, and the battery can all have up to three cooling circuits working at different temperatures in modern hybrid electric vehicles. Nevertheless, heat exchangers connect these circuits.
Since technology also works best in a specific temperature window, the various components are no longer restricted to playing defined roles as heat sources and heat sinks. Extreme deviations might even harm something. The component assembly will determine the best temperature windows; therefore, thermal energy must be carefully dispersed or stored.
Temperature control technologies for IC engines are anticipated to become obsolete as the automotive industry transitions to electric mobility. However, it is anticipated that the strong demand in these areas will continue due to the rising number of heavy-duty electronic systems, also including heavy-duty batteries and high current motors.
The demand for electrical and electronic components in passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the automotive industry expanded tremendously with increasing automation and powertrain electrification.
The car industry places a lot of emphasis on improving ride quality and heat insulation for cabin comfort, which has increased demand for cooling and heating systems. Additionally, the need for better thermal management systems is driven by the ever-increasing quantity of electrical and electronic components within automobiles because of heat dissipation.
The battery temperature management system is necessary for vehicles with hybrid or all-electric propulsion systems. For best charge storage and usage efficiency, the battery is operated at a specified temperature.
The market for automotive thermal management will therefore be driven by the rise of battery electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles. Increased regulatory standards by various organisations and governments to limit emission levels and promote zero-emissions automobiles are to blame for this rise in sales.
PVL is a leading mobiliser of the equipment in the market. The latest integration has been the usage of a traction motor cooling system, the temperature needs to be kept at the ideal level for higher efficiency and extended life (TCS).
Utilizing a complex algorithm and management system, PVL has created traction motor cooling that delivers the ideal motor temperature at a better efficiency. However, customised solutions are also be offered based on customer needs, our current TCS portfolio’s range is from 7kW to 10kW.
Schaeffler is part of the component manufacture trending companies in the current industry. The coolant and refrigerant circuits are connected via the new integrated thermal management system from Schaeffler, which serves as the central control unit. Additionally, it effectively utilises the electric drive’s waste heat for optimum energy balance.
Comparing the compact design to traditional, non-integrated systems, it can minimise the space requirement by up to 60%. The hydraulically optimised design of our new heat management system, on the other hand,
