Competence in the e-mobility area
Electric mobility has been increasing in importance for years. The demand for drives and secondary units for high voltages at high efficiency in the area of fuel cell vehicles, hybrid drives, or the pure electric vehicles is higher than ever and requires the corresponding knowledge and experience in the development process. Our employees have been active in these areas for more than a decade and know all the problems of such components, e. g. regarding efficiency, safety, and EMC requirements.
The subject of range is a key issue for market acceptance of this new drive type. Therefore, all energy consumers must have the highest efficiency. Due to the higher voltage, the reduction of interference emission in these components is an important issue in the area of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Furthermore, the demand for structured analysis and performance of the entire product development process must be considered according to safety standards IEC 61508 and ISO / DIS 26262.
Suitable working processes must be used for secure products. All of this know-how is part of our core competences. We already successfully implement, among others, projects according to the ASIL D requirements. Furthermore, there always is a demand for high integration density to use the present installation in drive components space as efficiently as possible. To achieve the desired construction target, our experience in development of electronic controls for the temperature range of up to 150 °C and beyond at high integration densities is extremely valuable.
Our experience in the area of electric mobility:
- Development of inverters & electric motors for the main drive
- Development of secondary units for high voltages
(e. g. electronic voltages / inverters for pumps, compressors, & blowers)
- DC / DC converters as up / down or bidirectional converters
- Development for safety-relevant application (IEC 61508 / ISO 26262)
- Development of vehicle control devices in the area of electric mobility
- Implementation for assessment of e-gas components
