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...
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.
Reliability is a key characteristic that significantly influences the economic success of a product. The AVL reliability process includes innovative reliability methods, risk management and product safety methods.
Hybrid vehicles add much complexity to powertrain and vehicle development. From an NVH point of view especially the sound consistency in the vehicle interior and the transition between different propulsion systems is of high interest. Additionally legislative regulations for minimum exterior noise have to be considered in hybrid vehicle developments.
Meeting the requirements of emission legislation is becoming more and more difficult due to ever tightening limits (e.g. Euro 6, SULEV, etc.) and the very strong requirement to reduce fuel consumption (e.g. Europe 95 g/km, CAFE, China Stage 4, etc.). High costs due to penalties or recalls may also arise if the emission limits are exceeded in the field. Robust emission calibration is necessary to meet the emission limits for mass production. All possible conditions like an aged exhaust...
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 has many years of experience in commercial vehicle calibration and has developed a unique tool for efficient calibration process: Mobeo. This tool allows you to cut development time and cost with secured or increased dataset quality.
The race does not wait until the car is ready - high performance products, continuous improvements and extreme time pressures are fundamental challenges in motorsports. Based on our long history of technology leadership for powertrain engineering, testing and simulation, AVL Design masters these challenges on the basis of a strong backbone organization that enables the setup of a multidisciplinary, autarchic and creative experts team that operates with the utmost confidentiality.
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...
Vehicle calibration essentially consists of determining the attributes of a car for fulfilling legislative standards as well as refining the car´s character to meet all the driver´s expectations for best driveability and comfort.
