Designing of an electric drive and charging system
Electric drive and hybrid technology has become a major part of the development departments at vehicle manufacturers. Legal requirements and consumers' environmental awareness are driving the development of powertrains that run totally on electricity, or are hybrids using electricity, petrol, diesel, or hydrogen.
Infotiv’s consultants have played a major role in developing a car where the powertrain is solely electric. Infotiv has assisted in developing two versions, with two different powertrains and charging systems.
This has involved leading and planning the project at a system level, as well as leading the project and determining the requirements for the HV battery, HV cables and DC/DC converters. The team has also developed a quick charger and designed an HV cable harness.
