The drivetrain for tomorrow – an optimization with many parameters

Der Antrieb von morgen – Eine Optimierung mit vielen Einflussparametern
Our way of life is changing rapidly und radically forced by four global megatrends: Climate change, Globalization, Urbanization and Digitalization.

The new full electric drivetrain of the Audi e-tron

In developing the Audi e-tron (Figure 1) Audi is going down entirely new roads with its in-house development of electric axle drives, high-voltage storage systems and charging systems. Featuring one drive on each axle, the full electric drivetrain embodies Audi’s core competency – the quattro drive – in a new and impressive way.
Electric motors, power electronics and axle gears incorporating a high degree of component sharing form the basis for a completely new final drive kit. The electric axle drives are manufactured at Audi’s own engine/electric motor plant by Audi Hungaria.
The 95 kWh 400 V high-voltage storage system is likewise an Audi in-house development. To create a 360° system offer, numerous services and wide-ranging charging options were developed with up to 150 kW charging power based on DC quick-charging.

Development and validation of complex mechatronic systems for the urban mobility of tomorrow

How does the powertrain of tomorrow look like? This question has driven the automobile industry since its existence. But it seems to get more and more difficult to answer it. One of the reasons for this is the broad diversification of the powertrain and the question which one is optimal. But this is not a novel issue for the automobile industry. Back to its beginning in the early 20th century in the US, the center of the automobile industry, almost 40 % of the vehicles were electrically driven, 40 % of the vehicles had a steam engine and only 20 % of the vehicles had a combustion engine.

eCULT – a lifestyle, purist, lightweight urban vehicle

The purist and award winning vehicle demonstrator CULT (Cars Ultra Light Technologies) of Magna Steyr was equipped with an innovative 3-cylinder 600 ccm compressed natural gas (CNG) engine with direct CNG injection, micro hybridization, automated transmission and achieved approximately 60 g CO2/km in the European test cycle. The results achieved with this configuration comprising a vehicle weight 680 kg have proven that it is possible to achieve lower CO2 emissions compared to an electric driven vehicle based on the European electricity generation mix (~80 g CO2/km).

Diesel PHEV – electrifying the efficiency

The reduction of CO2 emissions has been an important topic for innovation in the automotive industry already for the last decade. However, further improvements in powertrain efficiency and advances in lightweight construction and aerodynamics will each play a key role in efforts to meet the stricter future CO2 limits. Especially with the approach of the EU environmental ministers to lower the transport-related CO2 emissions by 37.5% from 2030 onwards in comparison to 2021 the average figure amounts on a fleet-average base to only ~ 59 g/km under WLTC conditions.

The hybrid model of the new hydrogen combustion engine as the most efficient powertrain of tomorrow

Obvious changes in the world‘s climate make action necessary. Today’s transport sector, including air, rail, marine, and road transport and traffic, is responsible for almost a quarter of the world’s CO2 emissions. The internal combustion engine is the dominant propulsion system, and the burning of fossil fuels not only results in CO2 emissions but also NOx and other pollutants harmful to all living beings.

Hybrid powertrain with methane engine – the consequent evolution

Never before have the challenges for future propulsion systems been more demanding than these days. It is important to consider the very complex goals in terms of primary functionality, environmental compatibility and cost efficiency to a balanced extent. Based on a detailed analysis the 48V technology turned out as the most effective approach considering the trade-off between CO2 and cost (Figure 1).

Environmental Impact of Electric Vehicles: Potential of the Circular Economy?

In 2015, the transport sector was responsible for 204 million tonnes of CO2 or 27.6% of energy-related CO2 emissions in Germany (based on [1]). In contrast to the energy sector, emissions from transport have been at a constant level since 1990 [2]. Even though the transport sector is stagnating in this respect, moving away from the ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets of 40% by 2040 and 80-95% by 2050 compared to 1990 [3] is not an option in view of the Paris Climate Agreement. Against this background, the question about the role of electric vehicles (EV) to meet climate targets arises.

Legal requirements for the construction of a public charging point infrastructure

Electromobility is ruled by a strong political will of implementation, because it may contribute the ambitious goals in climate protection and energy issues of the European Union and Germany. Furthermore a significant reduction of the CO2 emissions in traffic, the improvement of the air quality as well as noise reduction in urban and suburban metropolitan areas is expected.

A comparative evaluation of state‑of‑health estimation methods for lithium-ion batteries of electric vehicles

The strengthening of enforcement of environmental laws and regulations has led to an acceleration in the worldwide switch to electrically-powered vehicles, commonly referred to as the “EV shift”, and consequently has escalated the importance of rechargeable batteries used as drive power for EVs. Lithium-ion batteries (LiBs), the most representative in automotive use because of their light weight, high energy and high power density, need a battery management system (EMS) to accurately estimate the condition of the battery, especially state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH) in order to ensure efficient, reliable and safe performance. In comparison with the number of research reports on SOC, there are relatively few reports on SOH, because establishing the correspondence between the characteristic parameters and battery health is considerably difficult. This paper focuses on synchronous estimation methods for SOC and SOH, takes a close look at their general principles and scope of application for an in-vehicle unit, then performs experimental evaluation through case study of LiBs with different deterioration properties.

Dynamic multi-parameter sensitive modeling of a PEM fuel cell system for BEV range extender applications

To reduce the local CO2 emission of vehicles, alternative zero emission propulsions systems can be used. The most prominent being battery electric vehicles. But the two major drawbacks of long refuelling times and comparably low driving ranges can be addressed by using a range extender.

FEV simulation and optimization tools and their usage for hybrid powertrain sizing

In the last decade, the development of cleaner vehicles with higher fuel economy and lower emissions is becoming a mainstream in automotive industry because of the aggravation of oil crisis, public concerns on environmental protection, and stringent regulations on CO2 and pollutant emissions. Thus, the automotive industry regards hybridization and electrification of powertrain as a solution to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.

Impact of hybridization on the pollutant emissions behavior of gasoline and diesel vehicles

The increased occurrence of meteorological disasters, as an effect of climate change, but also health hazards due to bad air quality in urban areas, resulted in stricter limits for pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions of passenger cars. Concerning the containment of global warming to 2 °C above the average temperature before industrialization, the European legislator demands the automotive industry to assume responsibility to reduce the CO2 emissions in road transport. For new passenger cars the fleet-averaged CO2 emission limit was set to 95 g/km for the year 2020 [1].

Fail-operational powertrain for future mobility

Motivated by the ongoing urbanization megatrend, a vision for future urban mobility can be derived from the main problems like space scarcity, congestion, vehicle emissions and road safety, which most major cities have in common. Urban transportation planning shifts the priority from maintaining free flowing traffic towards facilitating access to destinations. Instead of improving conditions for car travel, e.g. by providing more lanes, the Avoid-Shift-Improve (A-S-I) [1] approach first seeks to reduce the need for travel, then promotes shifting trips towards non-car modes like public transit, bicycle or walking, and considers measures which improve efficiency within the modes, i.e. electrification.
