AVL E-Drive Solutions

Design, Develop and Test

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.
