Thermal Management with Low Voltage Heaters
The increasing presence of electric plug-in hybrid cars poses completely new challenges to the automotive industry in terms of vehicle range and thermal management including low voltage heaters. Due to the absence of combustion the powertrain produces very little heat, and therefore the cabin must be heated with the help of fan heaters. Those devices draw excessive energy from the battery and can reduce the vehicle range at low temperatures dramatically. Consequently, in electric vehicles there are conflicting objectives – maximisation of range on the one hand, and passenger comfort on the other. Due to its 100% efficiency (electric energy is completely converted into heat) ATT Powerfilm is therefore the ideal heating solution for this vehicle class.
