How can a power inverter make mobility clean and convenient?

Purely electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles face challenges to provide convenience to people's lives in terms of battery life, recharge time, and to become accessible to most consumers. 

Innovative technologies can make clean mobility accessible and convenient for your everyday life.

GO FURTHER!

GO FURTHER!

Planning your route without worrying about scheduling stops to recharge your battery is a safety and comfort that helps you focus on what really matters. 

Optimizing the battery life of electric propulsion systems is one of the features offered by the technology developed by BorgWarner, the VIPER. 

The VIPER is a silicon carbide power switch mounted on power inverters that offers greater energy density and efficiency thanks to double-sided cooling.

Power inverters transform the battery's direct current (DC) into an alternating current (AC) to power the electric propulsion motor, essential for electric vehicles.

Within each inverter, there is a power module, usually consisting of six semiconductor switches that manage the power flow to the motor. With the VIPER switch, all six keys have been reduced in size, placed between two small heat sinks that absorb and disperse heat.

This double-sided cooling structure allows for a more compact design, making the latest generation inverters 40% lighter and 30% smaller than conventional ones. With double-sided cooling, the inverters offer greater energy density and efficiency needed to extend the vehicle range and battery performance, allowing for longer trips.

RECHARGE - YOUR ENERGY

I schedule my stops and have time to recharge ... my energy! 

Battery charging time has been one of the factors that keep potential consumers away from electrified vehicles.

Our routines sometimes do not allow us to make long stops to refuel or recharge the vehicle. However programmed it may be, the time spent on this task makes us rethink how consistent with our needs this clean mobility solution can be.

Reserve your time to recharge your energy!

The battery recharge time for electrified vehicles can be improved with the VIPER inverter.

RECHARGE - YOUR ENERGY

The VIPER also increases efficiency and allows for a much higher power output in combination with an 800-volt system. Because it is based on Silicon Carbide, the Viper offers an improvement of up to 70% in switching losses and 25% greater energy density, which represents faster recharge times in 800-volt systems.

CONVENIENT FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

CONVENIENT FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

The technology available in the VIPER inverter allows automakers to take advantage of the efficiency generated to improve their projects and reduce costs through cheaper batteries, making electrified vehicles one of the clean mobility solutions accessible to everyone and good for the environment.

The Viper's unique design allows it to be sized and adapted for low and high-voltage systems, giving automakers the flexibility to manage the various voltage levels required by plug-in and battery-powered hybrid vehicles.

With 70% less switching losses - VIPER improves the response when converting from alternating to continuous electric current. This means that there is less energy loss in this action, and less energy lost is synonymous with energy available for use in the system. This is a great gain for the user and the environment.

With higher energy density - when combined with an 800-volt system- the VIPER is capable of offering 25% more energy than a conventional inverter, thus improving the recharge time.

Both the lower switching loss and the higher energy density give the VIPER efficiency and allow manufacturers to present consumers with a range of available performance options - including battery size, cost and variety of the vehicle applications - similar to how powertrains are marketed today.

How is power generated while driving?

^ Back to top

Today, there are several initiatives to take advantage of the energy generated by vehicles. BorgWarner has a technology developed over 15 years ago applied to hybrid and purely electric motors, which is able to reuse the energy generated when braking or going downhill to recharge the vehicle's own batteries. We are talking about HVH - High Voltage Hairpin motors.

HVHs are permanent magnet electric motors that use precisely shaped rectangular wire and several layers of interlaced “clamps” – the patented hairpin -  instead of traditional circular wire windings. This patented winding method, coupled with the small size of the conductors, allows the engine to achieve greater power density and efficiency.

How is power generated while driving?

With compact dimensions, the HVH can be installed in different positions on the vehicle, in addition to having a customizable configuration. They can be mounted where a conventional alternator would traditionally be used, being driven by the belt system of a combustion engine, or positioned between the clutch and the transmission in the case of hybrid applications. Both its compact dimensions and customizable configurations of diameter and length of the stator, as well as the cooling system and electrical connection offer easy integration in almost all hybrid and electric applications.

Provided exclusively to automakers, solutions such as HVH make it possible to transform the design of a vehicle from combustion to hybrid, further improving your energy efficiency. In addition to being used as a start/stop device, the technology helps in the sequence of shifting the vehicle. When operating as a generator, it is able to charge the batteries, taking advantage of the energy generated during braking or on slopes.

The HVH motors are versatile and clean and quiet in operation, allowing passenger cars, commercial and heavy vehicles, such as trucks and buses, to circulate through zero-emission zones and in areas sensitive to noise.

Although the automotive industry has recently gained prominence with its efforts to meet regulations for lower levels of emissions, we know that clean mobility is also linked to the energy source that powers it.

Each region has its demands, needs and limitations, and we understand that each propulsion system adopted is connected to the available energy sources. The use of one engine can be as energy efficient and low emission as another, especially when we consider the entire cycle that involves mobility, from the generation of energy to its final consumption.

Understanding the particularities and requirements of each region makes clean mobility real and sustainable.

We are walking together to offer the best options. Understanding the demands of each market makes our solutions more accessible and sustainable for cleaner mobility. Discover some specific solutions developed to make vehicles powered by biofuel more efficient and low emissions.
