Low Voltage Vehicle Electrification

Whether it’s the NHTSA and EPA’s enforcement of CAFÉ standards, Europe’s transition to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedures, or China’s National VI emissions levels, auto makers will be transitioning towards greater vehicle electrification across their fleets to meet increasingly stringent regulations as well as consumer demands for new technologies and more convenient features within their vehicles. However, current 12V systems alone can no longer support the growing number of E/E and power drawing systems; the industry will need to adapt higher voltage systems, such as the use of 48V.

As 48V power supply and mild hybrid systems become accepted as a viable option to increase power capacity as well as provide a fuel efficiency improvement of 10-15% over conventional vehicles, the question confronting auto makers is how to arrange and adjust the packaging of these electrical components within the vehicle design to optimize functionality, improve reliability, and ensure safety.

Join our expert speaker faculty and solutions providers at the 2nd Low Voltage Vehicle Electrification (LVVE) Summit as we define cost-effective actions for integrating 48V electrical systems into vehicle/powertrain architecture.
