The operation of HVAC systems in PEVs or any fully electric vehicle poses many of the same problems that running other systems face, but HVAC use poses some unique challenges, too. In climates where electric cars are or will be a major part of the transportation load from now on, consumers demand efficient and powerful heating and cooling in their vehicles. To help system improvements now underway in fully electric vehicles, engineers had to move away from the vehicle’s ability to use the large amount of excess heat produced by internal combustion engines. Regulating the temperature in any battery vehicle is a delicate venture since the power source degrades by calculable amounts under regular use, but by irregular amounts under the most stressful conditions.

Quickly removing heat and mitigating the damage from excessive heat has been a primary concern for motor vehicle designers since the internal combustion engine was first used. As engines got more powerful and were enclosed in compartments, reducing heat became more critical. Of course, as vehicles became more complex and accessories were added, these loads were added to engines and battery/electrical systems needed to be heavier and more complex, too. Full Content »

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated vehicles are rolling out faster than many in the industry ever imagined: In May 2017 Germany became the first EU country to legalize self-driving cars, allowing any form of automated driving as long as a licensed driver is behind the wheel. A mere two months later, the American House Energy and Commerce Committee approved self-driving legislation that could see manufacturers road-testing up to 25,000 vehicles per manufacturer in the first year the bill is enacted, 50,000 vehicles in year two and 100,000 vehicles each in years three and four.

Once considered the planet’s savior from greenhouse gas emissions, diesel was delivered a body blow by the American Environmental Protection Agency on the 25th September 2015 when VW was issued with a notice of violation of the Clean Air Act: Not only did this set in motion a series of events that would cost the manufacturer an estimated USD30 Billion, but more importantly, turned the diesel engine into an international villain.
