AVL is the world's largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems.
AVL designs and develops e-drive solutions which are tailored to your specific applications, including hybrids, e-vehicles or auxiliaries. We have over 15 years of experience under our belts in hybrid and e-vehicle development and have a profound knowledge of e-drive and actuators. Challenges: To reach a zero-emission mobility the electrification of vehicle powertrains will be necessary. This fact leads to new challenges for car makers and suppliers: How to make powertrain component more efficient to extend the range & reduce the charging time? How to combine compact and lightweight construction of high-power electronics under considering of passenger security? How to fit new technologies like SiC for e-Drive applications to extend functionality and maximize the performance? How to ensure safe operation in every environmental condition and for all areas of application? How to achieve a faster market entrance by efficient development? AVL offers a range of services for e-drives: Concepts – from the simulation of electric systems to the prototype Series development – design, simulation, integration, testing and verification Component development - motors, generators, power electronics and actuators E-Drive Software development for electronics EMC design and simulation Testing and validation of performance, functionality and EMC Electrification of auxiliary systems and accessories Solutions We develop single e-components but also integrated e-Drives for electric powertrains on every application of use. The AVL Abilities Methodologies & Engineering Know-How of the powertrain system integration to increase the system efficiency Enhancing the development of products and technologies through the interaction of computer-aided engineering tools to exploit feasibility Improvement loop of technical hardware innovations including the combination of hardware and software to perform high efficiency in power electronics System validation and durability tests performed by AVL’s high tech test benches Proprietary development & validation as well as cooperation with leading suppliers Your Benefits AVL designs, develops, integrates and tests your specific e-drive solution and can take it all the way to series development. Key features include: Optimal technology for your requirements: PMSM, ASM, SRM, BLDC, linear drives Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of all components Frontloading with innovative simulation technologies
Motorcycles and all kinds of power products as well as recreational products used on water, air and solid ground demanding best suitable technology and perfect quality but still at highly attractive cost.
AVL is constantly looking for creative students with a personal drive. If you want to combine theoretical and practical knowledge at an early stage and broaden your experience in the field you are interested in, then get involved! Topics for your thesis must be well defined and discussed with your university supervisor before they are presented to the respective AVL department. Topics can relate to all business divisions.
At AVL we understand the importance of the availability and usability of equipment and devices throughout the product lifecycle. The delays caused by operational downtime can be extremely costly. We aim to reduce the total cost of ownership and increase the availability and accuracy of test equipment. In this way AVL Customer Services for Testing Solutions helps to avoid the unplanned costs and reduces test repetitions caused by inaccurate equipment. How we do it: Worldwide, the AVL support infrastructure consists of more than 700 service employees working in more than 50 locations. 14 Hotlines guarantee access to AVL expert help and the AVL CARE™ Service Solution manages services for more than 1400 testbeds. In addition: AVL operates more than 240 of its own testbeds at 17 different locations AVL resident teams maintain, support and operate more than 1500 testbeds at customer sites AVL assistance offers application support that can reduce testing time by more than 70% by using the right calibration methodology and infrastructure. A tailored service concept can boost utilization rates to more than 80% and technical availability to more than 97% Find out more about AVL Service Modules and AVL Managed Service Contracts.
