// Electrified Drive Systems
The Future of Mobility Starts Now!
Electrifying drive systems achieves two major goals: compliance with current emission legislation by minimizing CO2 release and a simultaneous increase in driving comfort. APL has created a complex chain of methods to develop operating strategies and components for energy-efficient, emission-optimised real driving.
Development of Electrified-Drive Concepts
Together with its customers, APL is developing electrified drives for hybrid, fuel cell and battery-electric vehicles.
The focus is on development of system components, in addition to the overall drive system and software development & calibration.

Basic Data Input and Functional Development
Using simulation models in a Matlab/Simulink environment and application tools such as INCA Flow or AVL Cameo, data for basic functions, or more complex functions such as the rotor temperature model, can be input based on models and (partially) automated. High demands with respect to precise torque control and reproducible mapping of temperature behaviour can be met on APL test benches.
