The impact of efficiency enhanced drivetrain components on the energy consumption of electric and conventional vehicles

  • In light of emobility, the development of efficiency improved drivetrain components will also have a high priority. Whereas for conventional vehicle propulsion systems (i.e. combustion type engines) the avoidance of CO2 penalty was in strong focus, for electrified vehicles it is the impact on vehicle range. For GKN Driveline as the world's leading supplier of driveline components and systems, the prediction of energy savings is of particular importance in order to quantify the benefit of efficiency optimizations on the energy consumption of the vehicles. This paper gives an introduction to a simplified and transparent method of modelling to provide a basic understanding of the impact of efficiency improvements. Hereby it is shown, that with the increasing electrification of the drivetrain, the optimization of the efficiency in the mechanical path of power transmission will become even more important.
