DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "48V Issues and Prospects: Unlocking the Opportunities - 2018 Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The report offers insight into the opportunities and challenges offered by the development of 48V Power Supply Systems for automotive OEMs, established suppliers and potential new entrants.
It looks at new systems and new applications that are enabled by higher voltage power systems - and the ripple effects on electrical and electronic architectures and feature configurations that could follow.
48V systems will get better
There is a lot of room for improvement in the technology, according to two leading engineering consultants familiar with the area:
Jason McConnell, Business Unit Director at IAV Automotive Engineering:
People are looking to integrate technologies, putting the battery, power electronics from the inverter and the DC-DC converter in one box so you've got less cabling. 48V technologies can be adopted over a large number of vehicles; there's definitely reusability and scalability in most designs.
Tomasz Salamon, Engineering Operations Manager for Hybrid and Electric Systems at Ricardo: Eventually we'll see more components going to 48V, which gives you smaller and more-efficient electrical components and more power capability.
And these benefits will be enhanced by scale effects.
Rudolf Stark, head of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle Business Unit at Continental, has said that his company expects good market penetration across all vehicle segments, from A to D. That, he says, will bring large quantities of the technology to market and ensure cost-effective production.
