MAHLE Powertrain has opened a new facility for the testing and characterisation of cells, modules and battery packs, including steady state testing of open circuit voltage, storage capacity and thermal characterisation tests (e.g. voltage response under high discharge, thermal behaviour and internal resistance).
Mild hybrid vehicles employing 48V systems are expected to achieve significant growth in most major automotive markets in the near future. A 48V architecture brings a number of significant technical benefits to the vehicle and the battery itself will be much smaller, lighter and lower cost than high voltage alternatives.
MPT developed battery module concept with advanced thermal management technology for sustained high performance, designed for continuous high output in performance EVs without
The high performance battery module includes novel cooling features to maintain thermal stability, is easily tailored to suit energy requirements and package shapes and has multiple modules arranged in battery packs to suit different vehicle applications.
MAHLE Powertrain has two vehicle chassis dynos, fully equipped with the latest emissions equipment. Chamber one is a fully barometric chamber with climatic capabilities from -40°C to +60°C with altitude capability of up to 5000m. Chamber two is a standard ambient facility that can achieve -20°C to +60°C with solar loading capabilities.
Provides a realistic, scalablesolution for a high efficiency, series and parallel hybrid powertrain for a wide range of vehicle applications
Can be used to enable stoichiometric operation across the whole area map as well as offering efficiency benefits through reduced pumping losses and knock mitigation.
MAHLE ECU - a family of flexible, rapid prototyping engine controllers which utilise MAHLE high level control functions implemented on flexible ECU platforms.
