New High Voltage Power Distribution Unit from Littelfuse

DCS New High Voltage Power Distribution Unit from Littelfuse 1 400

July 8, 2022

 

Littelfuse’s customizable HV PDU can be designed for any voltage, providing solutions for OEMs installing the latest EV battery technology. By combining their high-voltage DC contactors and fuses in an IP67/6K9K-rated enclosure, optimizing power distribution with busbars and PCBAs, and adding temperature sensing and current sensing capabilities, the HV PDU safely, reliably, and efficiently distributes power from a high-voltage battery module to the high-voltage systems of a vehicle.

The high-voltage components are electrically connected through the busbar and wiring harness, which creates a high-voltage system for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles.

The system provides functions such as charge and discharge control, high-voltage component power-on control, circuit overload and short-circuit protection, high-voltage sampling, and low-voltage control. These functions protect and monitor the operation of the high-voltage system.

The HV PDU can also integrate battery master switch main control, charging module, DC/DC converter, PTC control module, and other functions. Compared to traditional PDUs, the HV PDU features more vehicle functional modules, which are more integrated in function and more complicated in structure, with heat dissipation structures such as water cooling or air cooling.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
