Continental has been developing cost-effective 48-volt electrification, which can be used with both gasoline and diesel engines for number of years. In the run-up to IAA 2019, Continental Powertrain is now presenting a 48-volt high-power drive system with 30 kW, enabling a full-hybrid vehicle.

Conventional full-hybrid vehicle would normally use high voltage technology. The Continental 48-volt hybrid system that offers features similar to those of a high-voltage electric drive.

The new 48-volt high-power system, comprising an electric motor with integrated power electronics and a battery, reduces fuel consumption and thereby also CO2emissions by around 20% compared with similar vehicles fitted with combustion engines. At the same time, the new 48-volt technology is also considerably cheaper than the high-voltage systems used up to now.

Our development objective was to achieve a level of driving efficiency with 48-volt technology that was previously reserved for high-voltage systems and we have now done exactly that.

—Stephan Rebhan, head of Technology & Innovation at Powertrain

 

The 48-volt systems were previously known as mild or P0 hybrids. They involve relatively unobtrusive electrification of the powertrain. Fuel consumption is reduced mainly with the support of the combustion engine (boosting) during acceleration and the recovery of excess kinetic energy (recuperation) when the vehicle decelerates. However, purely electric driving is not possible with such systems, which Continental already manufactures for a number of automotive manufacturers.

In the latest stage of development, the 48-volt system was repositioned in the powertrain. The electric motor was no longer placed in front of the combustion engine on the crankshaft, but behind it—between the combustion engine and transmission (P2 hybrid). This meant that fuel savings were able to increase and, in certain situations, such as driving through a 30 km/h speed limit zone, the vehicle could be driven using the electric motor alone.

With the new 48-volt high-power technology, this hybrid system enables the same functionality as previous, full-hybrid vehicles. The key component here is a new, water-cooled electric motor, the peak output of which was doubled to 30 kW in comparison with that used previously. Electric-only driving is therefore possible up to a speed range of 80 to 90 km/h.

The developers were able to achieve a 100% increase in power while maintaining the diameter of the motor. Overall, 48-volt high-power technology requires only slightly more installation space than the previous system. The difference in weight is also minimal.

However, the electric motor is not the only new component of the 48-volt high-power technology. The integrated power electronics also uses a new technology that now enables it to handle significantly higher currents. The innovations of the new 48-volt high-power technology result in a level of electrical efficiency that surpasses the previous system by almost 10%.

During recuperation, the new technology is much more effective than was previously the case because the losses incurred in the electric drive system has been halved.

A 48-volt system requires considerably less effort in terms of insulation protection, electrical components are smaller and cheaper, and even the design can be made significantly more compact, because smaller gaps are required between the individual components than is the case with high-voltage technology.

Continental is showcasing the new 48-volt high-power technology, which is also ready for series development, in a Ford Focus test vehicle.

With an eye on the new approval regulations that have been in force since 1 Septembe 2018, in accordance with the WLTP cycle, the 48-volt high-power technology could be developed even further. If, for example, the system was supplemented by on-board charging technology and a larger battery, this would make even a plug-in hybrid drive featuring 48-volt technology possible. This is because the ability to drive in all-electric mode is no longer the main criterion for benefiting from the support for plug-in vehicles. Instead, it is the conversion of electrically stored energy into traction in general.

The deciding factor for different funding initiatives is whether CO2 emissions can be reduced to below 50 g per kilometer.

C'è già in programma qualche futura applicazione.

 

Ford, o ho capito male?

Yes dovrebbe esser installato da Ford in prima battuta.

      L'auto elettrica è ormai un qualcosa sulla bocca di tutti:
       
      i media ne parlano ad ogni occasione in cui si fa riferimento alle novità del settore; i costruttori mostrano e lusingano con nuovi modelli, anche se spesso poco abbordabili ed all'antitesi dell'ecologia (SUV di lusso, enormi e pesanti);  la politica spinge incentivando, con quelli che ritengono essere contributi green e penalizzando le emissioni locali del sistema trasporti su gomma (Limiti CO2 in UE: un affare da 34 miliardi di Euro); tra la gente, si dibatte sull'effettiva ecologicità dei mezzi elettrici, quasi certa a livello di emissioni locali, ma molto più dubbia per ciò che concerne l'elettrico a tutto tondo, ovvero dalla produzione allo smaltimento dei mezzi stessi, non senza trascurare il problema della produzione e distribuzione dell'energia elettrica.  
      Ma fino ad ora non ci si era ancora soffermati abbastanza, sull'impatto che l'elettrificazione dei trasporti avrebbe avuto a livello industriale, sociale (occupazione) e quindi economico. 
       
      Vediamo un po' cosa sta succedendo, citando alcuni articoli che affrontano il fenomeno:

      Prima di passare la parola a voi, concludo evidenziando come già in passato, molte delle trasformazioni epocali abbiano comportato grossi cambiamenti e sacrifici.
       
      Quello che è importante capire però, è se ci si stia imbarcando verso un investimento veramente valido ed utile, che porterà ad un nuovo equilibrio, oppure se ci sia il rischio che il tutto si trasformi presto in un fuoco di paglia, con conseguenti ceneri ed emissioni... Metaforiche e non...
