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 systems in the automotive sector. According to the most recent market forecasts, the basic system with starter generator, 48V lithium-ion battery and DC/DC converter will have a rapid market rollout in the next few years. Despite the high costs that were originally forecast, extensive market penetration is expected as the associated reduction in CO2 emissions is something all manufacturers will have to embrace.
Because of the shift of high-power loads from 12V to 48V and the introduction of new functions at the 48V level, a function and component landscape will develop at 48V, which will also have an effect on the E/E architectures of highly electrified vehicles such as plug-in hybrid and electric automobiles.
Participants in the eehe Conference – Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management on 17-18 May 2017 in Bamberg will have the opportunity to meet all major players in this important future theme of automotive development at a single event. A further highlight here will be the accompanying trade exhibition. As in previous years, the event will be held in both German and English (with simultaneous translation).
