Andrew Cunningham, Senior Manager of Integrated & Electric Vehicle Safety at Volkswagen, discusses with us the current limitations of 12V systems, what is motivating other OEMs/Tier 1s to follow suit in implementing 48V systems, top safety concerns when it comes to the integration of a 48V power supply system, and what he believes is preventing the adoption of 48V systems in the U.S.
48V: Collected facts, latest developments and expert opinions 48 Volt - the new voltage level in vehicles. We have compiled facts, industry survey results as well as the latest developments and added expert opinions on 48 Volt Power Supply Systems.
48 volt has many advantages such as allowing vehicles not to lose engine performance but to gain fuel efficiency from downsized engines. Learn more about 48V and its benefits, interesting statistics and facts in this infographic by Delphi.
48V electronic architecture has been looming on the automotive horizon for a few years, and rapid growth is expected over the next five years as manufacturers strive to meet increasingly stringent CO2 emission targets. 48V mild hybrids are considered one of the most cost-effective ways of achieving the targets, which are set to be introduced in 2020 and expected to be further reduced in 2025 and 2030. To help understand this topic area better; Automotive IQ have written an exclusive report: "48V Technology on the Automotive Horizon".
Lithium-ion batteries enabled smartphones to flourish. The next innovation will upend transportation and the grid. George Crabtree is director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research at Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, and at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In this article George speaks about cheap energy storage will break the constraint that power must be generated at the same rate it is used.
Discussing with us the advances in energy storage for transportation is George Crabtree, Director, Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) at Argonne National Laboratory. George speaks about the limitations of current vehicle power supply systems, benefits of advanced lead acid over a lithium ion battery for powering the future vehicle, and what is currently being worked on at the Argonne National Laboratory, and more!
The Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) introduces a new paradigm for battery research: integrating discovery science, battery design, research prototyping and manufacturing collaboration in a single highly interactive organization. This new paradigm by George Crabtree will accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation and reduce the time from conceptualization to commercialization.
