Optimize your Vehicle Power Distribution Network by Integrating the DC-DC Converter into the Battery Pack 

Who should watch?

Power engineers who want to learn how to best implement a 48V Zonal architecture while reducing size and complexity 

What's it about?

With the move to Zonal architecture, future BEVs will have several heavy loads and safety systems using both 48V and 12V legacy power. Learn how incorporating 48V power conversion into the battery pack can eliminate substantial weight and size from the 48V power network. This integration will reduce weight, improve thermal losses, and reduce the system complexity. As a further step to reduce weight and system complexity, it will be shown how a 120kW 400V – 800V converter can be downsized to fit in the battery housing. 

This webinar focuses on:

  • The difficulties of battery electric vehicle (BEV) systems

  • Dealing with charging incompatibility between 400V and 800V

  • Integration of charger and 48V power delivery network (PDN) into the battery pack

  • How to reduce heat, cost, and weight

  • Benefits of high-density power modules in 48V zonal PDN
