Powertrain Design

Sustainable and clean powertrains require the permanent design improvement of the traditional IC engine. Due to the increasing complexity between the interrelation of the IC engine, transmission, electric motor, battery and controls, a comprehensive development approach is also required to deliver market-tailored, competitive powertrain solutions on schedule.

Electric vehicles are no longer a trend but an established fact. In order to make the correct decision on which technological approach – BEV (battery electric vehicle) or REEV (range extended electric vehicle) - best meets the requirements of the market, the manufacturers specific boundary conditions and economic aspects have to be balanced with a multidisciplinary approach. For the design engineers at AVL this challenge is well known. To find the solution that meets best the required...

AVL's team of experienced design engineers is familiar with the special tasks of commercial vehicles of all sizes – and how to solve them. We will help you find the optimal design with a balance between increasing powertrain complexity and the life cycle...
Reduced CO2 emissions and low fuel consumption, optimized driveability and maximum safety are the main drivers for the design of modern passenger car powertrains – requirements that often collide with the increasing pressure on the manufacturers to reduce development and production costs as well as the time to market. Design is at the center of new powertrain development, integrating the often conflicting requirements to provide an overall solution and documenting that solution for repeatable...
AVL is a pioneer of electrification techniques for vehicle powertrains and is familiar with all actual and promising future technologies. One of the major design tasks of the AVL design team is to find and elaborate a powertrain concept that best meets the dedicated customer vehicle concept, as well as the profile of the potential user. AVL uses most modern simulation and design techniques for early concept evaluation and verification, taking into account all the relevant aspects for an...

Powertrain Design for Compact Engines & 2-Wheeler

Design and Analysis for Motorcycles and Power Products

Modernization of products like motorcycles, recreational products such as watercrafts, ATVs, snowmobiles, small aircraft engines as well as handheld tools and power generators always has to start with professional design and analysis work.
Hybrid powertrain applications combine the best of two worlds – with the right emphasis between combustion engine and e-motor (micro, mild or full hybrid) the achievement of stringent emission legislation and fuel consumption targets is possible. Within this context the optimal solution for a specific application does not only depend on targets for emissions, performance, efficiency, reliability and comfort, but also on its costs and its manufacturability. AVL's engineering approach takes...
