Engine and Transmission between the Poles 12-48-96-400-800 Volt
Although e-mobility has not been quite as triumphant a success as had been hoped, powertrain electrification continues to advance at a steady pace. The technology is driven by ever more stringent CO2 limits, which, in many cases, can only be met with all-electric or hybrid drives. Depending on the initial situation, various degrees of electrification are required, a fact that ultimately leads to a multitude of designs, varying both in size and system architecture.
Entire powertrain regarded as one unit
As a forward-looking developer of powertrains, AVL has been viewing the entire powertrain as an integrated system for many years, not only focusing its research and development activities on electrical components but adopting an integrated approach to the combustion engine, electrical drive components, transmission and their interaction in order to find the optimum choice of system architecture for each customer. Having development expertise in each aspect of the powertrain (engine, transmission, e-drive, battery and control) and in the overall system, AVL is able to optimally support its customers in choosing the right powertrain architecture, defining the voltage level and optimizing all powertrain components.
In 1988 AVL hosted the Engine & Environment conference for the first time to provide an independent, neutral and international platform to promote the interdisciplinary discussion of key aspects in engine and vehicle technology in a wider social context – environmental and energy issues as well as legal framework conditions.
AVL is the world's largest independent company for development, simulation and testing technology of powertrains (hybrid, combustion engines, transmission, electric drive, batteries and software) for passenger cars, trucks and large engines. As of 2014, AVL had more than 7,470 employees worldwide and annual sales of EUR 1.15 billion.
