Auxiliary Motors for Cars and Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicles

Auxiliary Motors for Cars and Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicles

Many key functions within existing vehicles are powered as parasitic losses from the internal combustion engine. Fleet electrification and automation are two megatrends which are driving a migration to the electrification of these systems. Electrification offers internal combustion engine independence, improved efficiency, and easier interfacing with the electric control systems that will facilitate automation. This premium article gives a high level overview of how electric motors can be used to replace conventional parasitic solutions in key vehicle systems. Example systems include thermal management and power steering for consumer cars, and pneumatic breaks and high power radiator fans in commercial vehicles.
