BorgWarner Technologies To ‘Electrify’ Commercial Vehicles

BorgWarner will showcase its broad range of combustion, hybrid and electric technologies at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show running today through Sept. 28 in Atlanta.

BorgWarner says it is offering the growing hybrid and electric commercial vehicle market a broad product portfolio to help meet emissions regulations and fuel economy goals. The hybrid and electric commercial vehicle market is expected to experience a 32.9 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), increasing from 49,000 units in 2017 to 115,000 units in 2020.

“The growth drivers in commercial vehicle propulsion systems are changing. While environmental impact and fuel economy continue to be key concerns, truck and transit fleets are now confronted with new challenges from a growing list of urban areas where combustion engines are restricted due to zero-emissions zones and noise-sensitive areas,” said Christopher Thomas, chief technology officer, BorgWarner. “BorgWarner’s latest technologies will help bring new, cleaner hybrid and electric options to larger fleet vehicles.”

Featuring patented High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) stator winding technology, BorgWarner’s versatile HVH410 and HVH250 electric motors provide power and torque densities with a power output of up to 300 kW (402 horsepower) and peak efficiencies of more than 95 percent. HVH410 electric motors deliver a maximum torque of 2,000 Nm for Class 7 and 8 hybrid and electric applications, while HVH250 electric motors deliver a maximum torque of 425 Nm.

In addition, BorgWarner’s 48-volt high efficiency motor/generators provide higher system efficiency and improved energy recovery capability to meet increasing power demands.

BorgWarner says its eBooster electrically driven compressor already has been applied within the market and is useful for smaller commercial engines with less than 5 liters of displacement. A larger unit also is in development for engines with up to 13 liters of displacement.

BorgWarner’s eTurbo technology takes electrified boosting one step further with the ability to generate power to recharge vehicle batteries. The eTurbo is being developed in two sizes to serve both small and large commercial vehicle engines.

Further examples of electrified turbomachinery also are in development both internally and with customers, including an ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) expander with electrical output, an eTurbocompounding turbine generator and a gas turbine range extender for use on commercial electric vehicles.

BorgWarner will showcase its broad range of combustion, hybrid and electric technologies at the North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show running today through Sept. 28 in Atlanta.
