DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n634bt/48v_and) has announced the addition of the "48V and Automotive Electrification - Systems, Performance and Opportunity " report to their offering.
The powertrain of the next decade is being defined through 48V. Without this higher intermediate voltage conventional ICE continues to increase in complexity to address inherent weaknesses in a downsize and turbocharge strategy, and high voltage electrification means expensive shielded wiring and separate systems.
48V bridges the gap; it allows stop-start performance that far outstrips that operating with 12V; it enables the blending of electrical motors to be used to alleviate the transient response problems of larger turbochargers while enabling their optimization; it is finding its way into transmissions enabling torque infill for single clutch automated manuals.
All of these solutions and many more potential applications deliver both improved CO2 performance and eventually cost reduction though making unnecessary the inherent complexity of today's 12V solutions.
Managing the development and introduction of 48V systems is not without some significant engineering challenges, but it is the gateway to the kind of energy efficiency needed by OEMs to meet forthcoming emissions challenges and the aspirations of customers.
Furthermore, power demands within future vehicles, particularly as the world moves towards the complexities of autonomous driving, will continue to accelerate, and 48V is an essential near to mid-term building block for these technologies. High demand for computing power, control electronics, mechatronics and real-time software will increase the electrical loading on the vehicle's architecture and 48V allows these aspirations to be delivered.
48V and automotive electrification - systems, performance and opportunity, a brand new report analyses these issues in detail, answering questions such as:
- What are primary motivations behind moving to 48v technology?
- What's the outlook - short term, medium term, long term?
- Who's going to be first with 48v? When?
- What applications can be expected from 48v technology?
