The international EEHE Conference (Electric / Electronic in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management) is being held on May 22-23, 2019 in Bad Nauheim/Germany for the eighth time.
Haus der Technik brings together developers, users and researchers at EEHE, which combines the themes of three HDT conferences: „Energy Management and On-Board Networks“, „Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles“ and „Engine Start / Stop Systems“.
Conference participants have the chance to meet all important players in the industry at a single conference. From the large number of submissions received, a particularly attractive programme has been put together with poster presentations and vehicle displays.
The Call for Papers of the international conference EEHE 2019 in Bad Nauheim on May 22-23, 2019, is now open. Please hand in your abstract herevia upload no later than October 31, 2018. Click here for the upload form.
Thank you for the large number of papers. The scientific advisory board needs some time to evaluate the papers submited and organise the final program for the EEHE conference. You will get more information in December. The registration for the conference is already open. See you in Würzburg 2018!
6th eehe Conference – Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management 17-18.5.2017 in Bamberg The performance capacity of 12V on-board networks has finally reached its limits. The start of series production of vehicles with an additional 48V system heralds a move to the universal use of two-voltage on-board power supply […]
Modular Electrification in Vehicle Engineering
Compromise is required when developing electric or partly electric vehicles today. Engineers are confronted with various challenges when fine-tuning the interaction between engine, transmission gearbox, battery and auxiliaries to provide a perfect balance of performance, emissions, development costs and sales price. But one thing is for sure: there won’t be any automobiles without at least some degree of electrification.
Hybrid and pure electric vehicles, 48 Volt technology, plug-in concepts
When it comes to fully-electric vehicles, battery range and costs are the main problem to be tackled. Even plug-in concepts are still too expensive, making potential buyers hesitant. Thanks to the higher purchasing power of the target customer, these obstacles are not quite so significant in the premium segment. It is a fact, however, that the average car fleet comprises more cars of the lower price segment. Therefore, and because the internal combustion engine is still less costly, other options need to be developed alongside the concept of full electrification and plug-in technology. The 48 Volt approach might provide solutions. The cost/benefit analysis of energy and thermal management in the context of electrified auxiliaries is an important aspect to be considered. Mild and full hybrid solutions in combination with 48 Volt technology appear very promising indeed. If we manage to replace ICE-driven loads with sophisticated electric drive concepts, prices will come down, thus strengthening the competitiveness of electrified vehicles. Eventually, it is the customers’ acceptance and their readiness to buy that will determine the success of electrically driven vehicles. Both are predicated on a price comparable to that of the Diesel engine. Modular approaches to automobile electrification are the way to offer not only high-end technology but also interesting and affordable combinations for first-time buyers and for the masses.
