Thermal Management for New Energy Vehicles
- Thermal management is not only for
- Thermal management challenges in NEVs
- Methods and development priorities
Thermal management of conventional vehicles has evolved from pure cooling to a sophisticated thermal energy management which can contribute up to 2% to the vehicle CO2 reduction under WLTC conditions. New drivetrains with battery-electric, hybrid or fuel cell systems are adding a further vehicle complexity degree. Thermal management: some components, in particular, the battery requires active cooling and heating, and at the same time the powertrain itself cannot provide the heat energy demand. While the fast and simple way out would be electric heating and cooling, this reduces the vehicle driving range and, hence, is a hurdle for customer acceptance. Therefore, future thermal management systems need heat sources, energy exchange and harvesting systems, which minimize the impact on vehicle driving range.
A structured simulation and optimization process beyond component level can harvest the potential in the discussed range. An approach for such a future thermal management system is provided, using the example of an efficiency-oriented drivetrain. As the result: all warm resource’s waste heat can be utilized for friction reduction, battery warm up and cabin comfort, to save the CO2 and enlarge the electrical drive range.
IPOWERTRAIN – Connected Solution for Powertrain Optimization
- iPowertrain system integrated solution introduction
- iPowertrain use scenario
- Connectivity application platform
Nowadays compare to conventional vehicles, there are three requirements for NEV energy management: Range, Charging and Cost. How to find the balance among those requirements remains to be solved, especially for powertrain optimization.
With the development of V2X technology, it could realize functions of intelligent information sharing and exchange. By connecting with the road, the infrastructure, the GPS etc., the vehicle is capable to plan an optimized driving speed profile from current position to destination in advance. The predictive speed planning is beneficial to the driving performance and energy economy, for example it could help to find out the optimized engine/motor torque split control as well as shift management strategy.
Another important trend is electrification. In order to solve the limited driving range problem, thermal management has increasingly become an important issue. By introducing connectivity into thermal management, it is possible to predict heat flow energy during different driving phases, which helps to coordinate thermal components operation in advance.
To sum up, the entire powertrain system is prepared to solve the NEV pain points by applying connectivity to provide the predictive driving solution, to better coordinate the on-board components and reduce energy consumption.
