The main drivers of the truck and bus industry come from legislation, and from fleet operators who demand emission and noise reduction as well as attractive total cost of ownership. Electrification is one of the solutions for trucks and buses operating in urban areas, with the additional benefit of meeting local noise regulations.
The design and integration of e-components – axles, batteries, fuel cells, e-motor, etc. – into the vehicle strongly influence the performance and efficient operation of the vehicle.
AVL’s e-system integration starts with the definition and development of the right powertrain architecture, with consideration for the vehicle, defining the boundary conditions and requirements, and balancing the trade-off of performance and cost.
In this free 60-minute webinar, Michael Kordon (Manager CV Systems), Martin Acker (LE On-Road System Development) and Mihai Draganescu (Charging and Grid) outline AVL’s approach to integrating electrified systems into new and into existing vehicles for applications in trucks and buses.
