Our solutions accelerate the development and the validation of all power electronics components. This applies especially to in-vehicle applications that require different voltages to connect different sources and loads. Highly-efficient converters for the charging process (AC/DC converters using ultra-fast (>200kHz) power electronics) and in-vehicle power management converters (DC/DC converters) serve this purpose.  Depending on the vehicle architecture, this kind of converter control can also be integrated in the charging controller as well as in the motor controller. Similar conversions apply not only to automotive components, but to any kind of power electronics typologies.

Since the various electric systems of an electric vehicle operate at different voltage levels, intelligently-controlled power electronics components, guarantee an efficient energy transfer. This applies to all different types of electric vehicles such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), battery electric vehicles (BEV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), and fuel cell vehicles (FCV).

  • While DC charging of PHEV and BEV, the electric energy flows directly from the charging station to the highvoltage vehicle battery. In case of AC charging, the AC/DC conversion is performed via the vehicle onboard charger which is connected to the high-voltage battery. In addition, DC/DC converters are used to generate the energy for lower voltage levels (12 V and 48 V).
  • In FCV, the DC voltage provided by the fuel cell also must be converted.
  • In mild HEV, the highvoltage level is usually 48 V. Bidirectional DC/DC converters are used to interconnect the 12V and 48V board net.

Reduction of size and weight as well as increasing efficiency are major challenges of converter development.

Optimized Production Software Development

The central challenges in production software development include the optimization of RAM resources, run time, and integration into the overall system. Furthermore, it must be possible to split the software in such a way that regular software updates are possible. And before the final software release, special validation and often a release process are required.
