Multi Voltage Systems & Aluminum Conductors: Help Me Assess New Electrical Technologies
The nature of vehicle electrical systems is changing rapidly. High power electrical systems are driving mixed voltages, and cost pressures are making conductor materials like aluminum an increasingly viable competitor to copper. The challenge of assessing the impact of these technologies on vehicle safety and of understanding cost/weight trade-offs is a critical activity. This session will discuss and demonstrate trade studies involving new vehicle technologies, show how impacts on system reliability can be assessed, and optimize wire sizes for both copper and aluminum at the platform level.
