With more regulations on fuel economy and emissions to curb global warming as well as constraints on energy resources, hybrid-electric and electric vehicles (HEV/EVs) are attracting more attention of automobile manufacturers, customers and governments. In the field of Propulsion Technologies AIT focused on novel technologies and topologies for the timely investigation, analysis and realization of energy efficient, safe and low-carbon propulsion components and concepts.

Our services

  • development of propulsion components with higher efficiency, power density, energy density, lifetime and safety
  • advanced methods and tools development for virtual design and validation of energy efficient vehicle concepts to achieve optimized component interaction.

The AIT services increase the energy efficiency of vehicle components, as well as for whole vehicles. This implies several technical advancements, such as investigating new technologies and topologies for powertrain and auxiliary components, reducing development time, designing procedures for robust and reliable power electronics, improved component interaction (e.g. the interplay between power electronics and the electric machine), and passenger comfort.
