Increasingly more stringent emission and fuel efficiency regulations globally, changing consumer sensibilities, cost considerations, government policies, and so on have been driving the shift toward more eco-friendly and sustainable forms of propulsion technologies. While components such as engine cooling radiators have been in existence for years, they are now complemented by relatively newer technologies that include cooled exhaust gas recirculation, intelligent engine cooling, and more radical innovations with niche applications such as water injection.
Propulsion and thermal systems, modules, and components are subject to increasing levels of consolidation to improve overall system efficiency. At one point of time, a single radiator was sufficient to handle the complete thermal management of a vehicle, but thermal systems now consist of an assembly of up to four or five heat exchangers that include the engine cooling radiator, condenser, charge air cooler, transmission oil cooler, and in some cases, even power steering oil coolers.
This report delves into the sphere of automotive thermal management and how this industry is being influenced by increasingly stringent emission norms that are coming into force worldwide.
