Fuel cells are a potentially game-changing technology for mobility and power generation. AVL’s fuel cell engineering and testing offerings are based on more than 15 years’ experience. The solutions are flexible, cost-efficient and offer viable business cases for clean and efficient mobility and power generation applications.
The superior electrical efficiency (up to 60 %) of this stationary power generator in even small power ranges combined with zero pollutant emissions makes it an attractive, clean and cost-efficient technology. Little maintenance and service enable low total cost of ownership.
AVL provides high-end customer-specific PEMFC engineering solutions ranging from computational cell/stack/system development over fuel cell powertrain development, e-drive powertrain engineering, the integration into the vehicle, software development, system testing to complete fuel cell vehicles (from prototype to start of production).
AVL is actively looking into future battery technologies and their commercialization potentials, so we can offer our customers leading edge solutions in all key topics of valuable and advanced battery engineering. We drive research projects and realize feasibility concept studies for technologies many years ahead.
AVL offers objective testing of series batteries and in-depth comparison with competitors. The comprehensive service package provides valuable information on globally existing automotive batteries. By acquiring extremely deep and broad battery know-how through the analysis of development criteria, AVL is able to provide valuable input for shaping future battery and xEV strategies.
Electrification of passenger cars is no longer a trend but already a fact. Functional, durable and reliable batteries are required to satisfy the needs and expectations of the customer. AVL can fully support engineering and development for batteries from concept to production integration - bringing together the knowledge of cell producers and the requirements and development processes of OEMs to design, simulate and validate automotive grade batteries for electrified powertrains.
AVL has gained substantial experiences in the field of battery development to support future electrification and CO2-free mobility. AVL offers customer-oriented, tailored solutions from systems engineering to provision of functional prototypes, development and validation of series production bound systems.
AVL develops fully integrated e-axle systems for commercial vehicles. The compact packaging of all e-drive components (e-motor, transmission and inverter) provides maximum flexibility for the vehicle packaging. In addition, the e-axle improves the system efficiency.
For far more than 10 years, AVL has gained extensive experience with the 48-Volt Technology – both for Gasoline and for Diesel applications. Based on AVL's integrated system competence including all elements of a modern powertrain (engine & transmission, power electronics & e-machine, batteries and controls) and our know-how in modular up-grading of existing concepts we are able to deliver solutions for best driving pleasure combined with lowest Emissions and CO2 at beneficial cost.
