Concept solution for efficiency improvement of a powertrain with P2 hybrid technology by an intelligent hybrid control unit
Regarding the conflict among rapid traffic, economic growth, and increasing requirement for environment protection, the future mobility poses new challenges for the global automotive industry. Especially in China, which has the biggest automotive market in 2014 with 18.4 million new car registrations , the word “Green-Drive” plays more and more important role. The Chinese Government introduced ambitious regulations to push down passenger vehicle fuel consumption to 5L/100 km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). With this regulation, the New Energy Vehicles (Battery- and Plug-In Hybrid-Electric Vehicles i.e. BEV and PHEV) are defined as the vehicles, which fulfill certain performance and driving autonomy (i.e. 50 km electric range in NEDC). The end-customers will be granted by significant bonuses for the purchase of such vehicles. The Chinese market of the New Energy Vehicles must be boomed in the next years. Taking the lack of charging infrastructure and the current battery techniques into account, Schaeffler has decided to build a demonstrator PHEV vehicle especially regarding the Chinese market, the Schaeffler China Concept Car (i.e. SCCC) .
