New DC-DC technology will aid development of next generation electric and hybrid vehicles   Print  
The flexible converter will handle multiple voltages simultaneously on both the input and output sides. Thursday, 17th June 2010

Flexible multiport converter may replace multiple separate DC-DC converters on future hybrid vehicles, saving cost, weight and space

Prodrive is leading a consortium of companies to develop a new technology for electric and electric hybrid vehicles that will reduce the weight and space taken by the electrical power system.  The 3 year project to develop a flexible DC-DC converter is supported by investment from the government-backed Technology Strategy Board. Prodrive is joined by the University of Manchester, Raytheon Systems Ltd, SciSys, International Transformers and Tata Motors European Technical centre. The first year of the project will be devoted to fundamental research, followed by two years of application and development, leading to a driveable demonstration car by the end of year three; market introduction is said to be 5-7 years away.

Company is developing commercialization plans for new flame-retardant resin

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., June 3, 2010 … Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML) has developed what is believed to be the world’s first Polyethylene Terephthalate yarn to meet both the halogen-free flame-retardant regulations and the “no flaming drip” requirement.  Until now, no commercially available, zero-halogen flame-retardant Polyethylene Terephthalate has been able to meet this requirement, known as the UL 1441 VW-1 flame test.  Federal-Mogul is now developing commercialization plans to enable volume manufacture of fabrics made from the new material.

The two Peugeot RCZ diesels used virtually standard production Delphi common rail injection systems and ECUs to succeed in the ADAC Nurburgring 24hr race. Peugeot also used production Delphi charge air coolers and radiators supplied to the road cars as th Friday, 28th May 2010

Collaboration between Delphi and Peugeot leads to success at the Nurburgring using standard road car fuel injection, engine management and charge cooling systems

 PARIS –Delphi Corp.’s virtually standard diesel fuel injection system and powertrain cooling technology as used in many popular road cars helped power two Peugeot RCZs to an impressive first and third in-class standing at the gruelling ADAC 24-hour endurance race at the Nurburgring (May 15 16). Competing against 197 vehicles, including many highly modified for racing, the RCZ 2.0 liter HDi diesel coupés delivered extraordinary speed and endurance in the hands of ‘gentleman drivers’ from France and Germany. To demonstrate the reserves of performance and durability inherent in the regular production vehicles, Peugeot raced cars that were largely unmodified from the road-going versions that have just been launched to celebrate the company’s 200th anniversary.

New ultra-light forged wheel range uses Alcoa blanks to ensure minimum weight with optimum strength   Print  
Eco Super Light wheels will be available in 19, 20, 21 and 22 inch diameters to fit a range of powerful sports cars Wednesday, 26th May 2010

New manufacturing technique reduces vehicle weight by around 16kg compared with cast 19 inch wheels.

A new range of premium forged aluminium wheels that use Alcoa blank technologies is being launched by Solomon Alsberg. The blanks allow these wheels to be substantially lighter, reducing both unsprung weight and total vehicle weight. Available in sizes from 19 to 22 inches, the new Eco Super Light range is expected to prove popular for a wide range of demanding applications, from race cars to high performance road cars, where its low mass and substantially reduced rotational inertia will improve handling, sharpen steering response, improve acceleration and reduce both fuel consumption and vehicle emissions.
