AutoTechInsight Webinar: New Challenges Posed by Electrification on Thermal Systems
Despite light vehicle production and sales disruption generated by the COVID-19 crisis, electrified propulsion has been suffering significantly less compared to traditional engine propelled vehicles in 2020. It appears clear the automotive industry direction of travel towards increasingly electrified propulsion has been set. Traditional internal combustion engines are thermally inefficient and requires significant deployment of devices to remove heat, but they are also a reliable source of heat during winter days for cabin comfort.
Electric vehicles, whilst significantly more efficient, come with a wider variety of thermal management challenges: batteries properly operate and charge in a limited temperature range, e-motors and electronics require cooling to avoid de-rating. Additionally, limited waste heat pushes for additional sources of heat to ensure proper cabin comfort. In this scenario, car makers and suppliers are looking for efficient and cost effective ways to overcome these challenges. Which battery thermal strategies will better balance cost and performances? Which cooling media will be mostly used for e-motors and inverters? Will heat pump be a must in the future to reduce range anxiety whilst saving money on battery capacity?
