Optimum Powertrain Configuration For Future CV Requirements

In order to master future requirements for the reduction of greenhouse gases, all relevant technologies have to be investigated, their potential for CO2 reduction determined and the impact on other attributes as product cost or drivability evaluated. For the selection of main powertrain parameters of Commercial Vehicles (CV) at an early stage in the development process, a reasonable combination of expert knowledge and mathematical optimisation processes is necessary. For this purpose, AVL has developed new methods, which are described in more detail in this article.
