H2020 GV-01-2017 Optimisation of heavy duty vehicles for alternative fuels use - UK company seeking vehicle manufacturers
Summary:
UK company based in the north east of England is seeking vehicle manufacturers and primary suppliers to be partners in H2020 GV-01-2017 call.

The project aims to optimise and develop new powertrains for heavy duty vehicles running on alternative fuels with the perspective of achieving higher efficiency and lower pollutant emissions.
Description:
This UK company specialises in the design and manufacture of electrified ancillary systems such as ICE (internal combustion engine), hybrid and electric vehicle powertrains to improve efficiency, thermal management and emissions.

The company is looking for partners to work on a project proposal for this Horizon 2020 call.

Project Challenge - The EU has a strong dependence on diesel, particularly for operating heavy duty vehicles (HDV). The use of alternative fuels in internal combustion engines could reduce this dependence in the short and medium term as well as achieve a significant level of GHG (green house gas) and pollutants emission reduction. Several gaseous and liquid alternatives could be appropriate fuels for trucks running over short, medium and long distances. The specific challenge is to optimise and develop new powertrains (engine / exhaust after treatment systems) for heavy duty vehicles running on alternative fuels with the perspective of achieving higher efficiency and lower pollutant emissions compliant with Euro VI standards and meeting CO2 emission targets under discussion.

Company Summary

All vehicle powertrain systems feature parasitic losses including waste heat, lubrication systems, thermal management systems. As the drive to improve vehicle efficiency continues, optimising these parasitic vehicle systems can provide significant opportunities for efficiency and performance improvement. In an EV (electric vehicle) or HEV (hybrid electric vehicle), investing in improving system efficiency can result in significantly extended battery range without increasing the size or weight of the battery pack. In ICE vehicles this can lead to so called micro or mild hybrid systems, with significant opportunities for fuel saving and improved emissions control.

The company has specialist knowledge in the design of high performance controllable pump and fan technology to improve system efficiency leading to enhanced vehicle performance. The company has found that taking a systems level approach to design leads to an improved outcome. All of their company ancillaries feature integrated CAN (controlled area network) enabled controls to allow for comprehensive system power management and diagnostics. Their flexible approach means they are able to offer highly customised solutions to meet the customer requirements. They will also support a project from innovation through to production.

In addition to conventional water based coolant systems the company has expertise with highly integrated oil based cooling and lubrication systems using newly developed high power oil pumps. These are suitable for combined directed lubrication and cooling of the e-machine and gearbox with combined pressure and scavenge stages. This directed lubrication technology also has potential to improve the efficiency of conventional vehicle gearboxes by reducing churning loses.

In addition to their expertise in EV and HEV ancillary systems the company pioneered the electrification of the engine cooling fan system in ICE powered transit buses. This replaced the conventional hydraulic and belt driven systems that are difficult to control and in-efficient with high performance, controllable electric cooling fan arrays and specially configured heat exchangers. This approach has great potential on all types of heavy duty vehicles to improve efficiency and engine thermal management in a very cost effective manner.

The company is looking for vehicle manufacturers and primary suppliers who are engaged in the development of electric and hybrid vehicle powertrains who would be interested in improving efficiency through the reduction of parasitic losses.

Manufacturers of heavy duty vehicles and machinery such as buses and off-highway equipment who are interested in improving vehicle efficiency through cost effective systems electrification.
