29th International AVL Conference "Engine & Environment"

Competition of Powertrain Systems to minimize CO₂ and Emissions 2020/2025

1st - 2nd of June, 2017

Helmut-List-Halle, Graz, Austria

Online Registration

This years AVL “Engine & Environment” conference presents high-level speakers as well as interesting side events: the opening of the AVL-TU Graz Transmission Center, the opening of AVL ADAS/AD & Vehicle Development Center and the very popular test drives with AVL vehicles on the AVL test track.

Topic

The conference will cover and discuss the competitive approaches on a system level and the technical solutions for such concepts.
 

  • Electric motor versus combustion engine
  • BEV versus PHEV
  • PHEV versus range extender
  • Add-on versus dedicated hybrid transmissions
  • Fuel cell versus battery
  • Fuel cell versus hydrogen engine
  • Diesel engine versus ALL
  • Fossil versus regenerative fuels
  • Hydrogen versus Synfuel
  • Gaseous versus liquid
  • Power–to-X versus Biomass–to-X
  • Low versus high voltage systems

 

The development of powertrains is currently in a phase of
enormous change. Electric vehicles have been announced for some time, but now several OEMs are planning market shares up to 25 % within 10 years. Hence the focus of development must be shifted NOW: The competition of powertrain systems is intensifying.
Does the combustion engine still have a future in this scenario? Will it lose ground or will it be able to assert itself by implementing new technologies and highly efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment systems together with e-fuel or bio-fuel? What role will the diesel engine play? Particularly when the well-to-wheel method is applied to electric hydrogen to drive fuel cell vehicles? Do plug-in hybrids still make sense if electricity is not counted as having a zero CO2 contribution? Is the 48 Volt route perhaps
the better choice for hybrids? Will there still be many add-on
hybrid transmissions or only DHTs (Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions)? What does the transmission of the future even look like?

The conference will cover and discuss the competitive
approaches on a system level and the technical solutions
for such concepts.

Foreword

COMPETITION OF POWERTRAIN SYSTEMS TO MINIMIZE CO2 AND EMISSIONS 2020/2025

The development of powertrains is currently in a phase of enormous change. Electric vehicles have been announced for some time, but now several OEMs are planning market shares up to 25% within 10 years. Hence the focus of development must be shifted NOW: The competition of powertrain systems is intensifying.

Does the combustion engine still have a future in this scenario? Will it lose ground or will it be able to assert itself by implementing new technologies and highly efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment systems together with e-fuel or bio-fuel? What role will the diesel engine play? Particularly when the well-to-wheel method is applied to electric vehicles? Or will solar energy be used to produce hydrogen to drive fuel cell vehicles? Do plug-in hybrids still make sense if electricity is not counted as having a zero CO2 contribution? Is the 48 Volt route perhaps the better choice for hybrids? Will there still be many add-on hybrid transmissions or only DHTs (Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions)? What does the transmission of the future even look like?

These challenges have resulted in an additional impulse in the pace of powertrain system development. Different systems are in competition with each other. Which manufacturer will opt for which solution? Which solution is the best in a macroeconomic sense? We want to debate all of this with you and renowned experts at the “Engine & Environment” conference on the 1st and 2nd of June 2017, including the well-established high-level panel discussion at the end of the conference. The conference begins on Wednesday with the possibility of testing a range of the latest developments at our test track.

29th International AVL Conference "Engine & Environment"

Competition of Powertrain Systems to minimize CO2 and Emissions 2020/2025

Every spring manufacturers, suppliers and developers from the automotive industry meet to inform themselves and discuss the latest trends in their sector at the AVL International Conference. This year saw 320 participants from 20 countries come together to exchange views on a fundamental and critical subject: Which powertrain concept will prevail in international competition regarding the stricter conditions governing the minimization of CO2 and emissions?

On the day before the conference, several of these powertrain concepts could be tried out by driving on the AVL test track in Gratkorn. The opportunity to experience the latest technical concepts at first hand is very popular with the conference participants and has become a permanent feature during the conference.

But what is the actual situation of powertrain competition? At the conference the combustion engine had strong defenders who on the one hand pointed to the immense potential for CO2 reduction and emissions minimization still available, and on the other, to the disadvantages of battery-driven vehicles if a “well-to-wheel” holistic view is taken. Mitsuo Hitomi, Managing Executive Officer at Mazda Motor Corporation, recommended that it would be more productive to retire coal-fired power stations than to change to e-mobility.

The synergy between combustion engine and electrification was particularly intensively discussed. According to Dr. Günter Fraidl, the combustion engine is thus experiencing a second springtime, and for Harry Husted of Delphi Automotive Systems, it is clear that the competition between the two concepts will morph into a growing partnership.

However, pure battery-electric-driven powertrain concepts had their staunch supporters. Michael Harpster, Global Chief Engineer at General Motors, presented the new Chevrolet Bolt in a very inspiring way and made it clear that despite the 238 miles of range, the customers of these vehicles are motivated by something completely different. He called it the “EV smile”.

Gerald Killmann, Vice President Toyota Motor Europe, not only introduced the advantages of hybrid technology with which we “can drive emissions-free for three quarters of the time, in an affordable manner today”, but also explained why Toyota, with its Mirai, is betting on a future of fuel cell driven vehicles: “We need a storage medium for renewable energy – hydrogen is particularly suitable for this job!”

This was enough to start a discussion on the core principles that consider the development of mobility in conjunction with the energy transition – “Energiewende”. If we can indeed store excess, renewably produced electricity in the form of hydrogen, the hydrogen gas could be methanated and fed into the gas distribution network to be used as E-gas in CNG-powered vehicles. This concept was presented by Dr. Wolfgang Demmelbauer-Ebner, Head of Gasoline Engine Development at Volkswagen AG who emphasized that “CNG offers the opportunity to reduce significant amounts of CO2 for little effort”.

It is not possible to mention all aspects of the discussion here; the approaches and the subject itself were so varied in nature. Even the possibility to create Synfuels from green hydrogen was discussed, along with the effects of connected driving on emissions and consumption. The discussions during the social evening in the Seifenfabrik, in the breaks, after every individual presentation and during the final panel discussion were so lively.

28th International AVL Conference "Engine & Environment" 2016
"Powertrains for the Chinese Market – A Challenge for the Global Automotive Industry"


It was not only the topic of this year's conference that was exceptional. For the first time in the history of the AVL “Engine & Environment” conference the focus was not on a specific aspect of the powertrain, but on a country; a country with requirements and demands affecting the powertrain that pose an enormous challenge to manufacturers, suppliers and developers alike. The topic was spot-on for more than 300 participants from 18 countries who met on the 9th and 10th of June for intensive and fruitful discussions.

The conference provided an extremely interesting and first-hand insight into the product strategies of the large Chinese OEMs such as FAW and SAIC. The participants also learned about the plans of international manufacturers including GM, PSA, Renault, BMW, Volkswagen and suppliers Continental and Schaeffler. Prof. Dr. Jun Li, Vice Chief Engineer of China FAW for example, reported with encouraging openness on the development steps his company is planning for both the combustion engine and New Energy Vehicles.

In the course of the next few years, China is to introduce one of the most stringent emission legislation standards in the world. The legislation will be introduced hand-in-hand with highly demanding fuel consumption standards. At the same time, the country is consistently pursuing a strategy to introduce electrified vehicles to enhance its own economic position and to fight air pollution, above all in its megacities. All manufacturers will therefore need to make a great effort if they are to meet the requirements and comply with the strict regulations – and all of this within a mere single vehicle generation. Christian Koehler of Strategy Engineers quantified in impressive detail the costs this work will entail with regard to engine, transmission, vehicle, exhaust after-treatment and electrification.

Several approaches and solutions were discussed at the conference as to where further development of the powertrain for the Chinese market should focus. Plug-in-hybrid, for example, was repeatedly mentioned as a possible solution; dedicated hybrid transmissions were presented and also experienced by the participants who were able to drive demonstration vehicles on the AVL test track the day before the start of the conference. The 48 volt mild hybrid was assessed in a controversial manner by the various speakers. While Dr. Peter Gutzmer, CTO of Schaeffler AG, expressed his conviction that 48 volt is clearly a first step at the beginning of a strategy geared to electrifying the powertrain, Christian Chapelle of PSA Group was hesitant and posed the question as to whether the consumer would ultimately be prepared to accept the higher costs. Ingo Scholten, Executive Director of SAIC, on the other hand, was convinced that China 6 is feasible without 48 volt.

What makes this conference series so special is that it always looks at the conference topics from different perspectives, including developments either directly or indirectly associated with the powertrain itself. Jason Kwon of LG Chem presented battery technology, Michael Rafetzeder of Nemak spoke about advances in engine component casting and Dr. Wolfgang Warnecke, Chief Scientist Mobility Shell, presented his opinion on the development of mobility in China from the perspective of a mineral oil group. In his presentation, he argued strongly in support of the fuel cell which provides purely electric and local emission-free driving, but without the drawbacks in terms of range and the speed of recharging the BEV.

The concluding panel discussion was very lively with many contributions from the conference participants who had already shown great interest in the discussions following the excellent presentations. This year's event once again proved the importance of the AVL conference as a venue for in-depth professional and personal exchange among colleagues, open discussion of concepts and reflection on the future of the powertrain. The next AVL conference "Engine & Environment" will continue in this spirit on the 1st and 2nd of June 2017. The topic will be "Competition of Powertrain Systems to reduce CO2 and emissions 2020/2025”
