The advent of large electric vehicles poses interesting challenges as well as opportunities. Heat isn’t an ample byproduct, “refueling“ becomes a time-consuming task and batteries need careful temperature management. Our thermal management systems are a complete solution that keeps everything running at the right temperature, as long as possible – day-to-day and year after year.
Our new cooler is designed especially for the lower working temperatures of electric vehicles, offering reductions in both weight and size. By minimizing the use of compressor and fans to save energy, it helps decrease battery usage and increases the vehicle’s operating range.
Our integrated high-voltage compressor supersedes the HVAC compressor and supplies cooling for both the HVAC and battery. It is directly driven from the main high-voltage battery for maximum efficiency.
High-voltage heaters deliver heat for both the battery and HVAC. The heaters (high-voltage driven to eliminate energy losses caused by conversion) are managed by the control system and used sparingly since heat generated from the driveline is used.
The control system in our Thermal Management Systems, in conjunction with our expertly programmed ECU, take ambient temperatures and driving cycles into account in order to carefully balance cooling and heating needs throughout the system – always with the aim of conserving the battery to increase the vehicle’s operating range.
Our TMS makes sure that every component is cooled to its individual optimal operating temperature. To save energy, excess heat is recycled and used for heating the cabin and battery.
To ensure peak performance and a long life cycle, the battery temperature is constantly monitored and kept at an optimal 25°C.
To keep the system efficient, simple and compact, the HVAC is supplied with heater and compressor
We deliver complete Thermal Management Systems characterized by high flexibility and a modular approach where an intelligent ECU works in tandem with coolers, heaters, pumps and compressor – all tailored for electrical vehicles with three goals in mind: smooth operation, energy saving and high efficiency.
