Powertrain – mastering the challenges of the future

Rising demands for driving dynamics accompanied by low exhaust emissions and lower fuel consumption – these are the challenges for engine and powertrain development. The main innovation carriers are new and alternative powertrain concepts, for example hybrid and electric drive systems, but also the further development of existing engine concepts. The technology for these powertrains is becoming increasingly complex. Bertrandt has comprehensive experience in component and module development for innovative engines and powertrains, and we make this experience available to our customers.

Hybrid and electric vehicles

New hybrid and electric vehicle technology requires development service providers to prove that they have interdisciplinary expertise. Effective interaction between an internal combustion engine and an electric motor can be achieved only by the systematic networking of different fields of knowledge and competence. Development is focused on reducing emissions, downsizing and the electrification of the powertrain. Key issues are component and assembly development, thermodynamics and emission control, control of engine and powertrain functions and thermal management. Bertrandt offers individual and tailored solutions – from the initial concept through to final testing, from simple components to complex modules and for the complete electrification of the powertrain.

Stricter emission legislation and fuel consumption requirements, a growing number of competing powertrain concepts and increasingly complex subsystems make it necessary to consider the powertrain from an overall perspective.

Experience more

Higher customer requirements regarding driving performance and stricter legislation on emissions standards and fuel economy are resulting in increasingly complex drivetrain architectures, including electrification, and require the continuous further development of functionalities and their calibration as well as completely new developments.

Experience more

Thermal management involves optimising energy flows of all thermal systems in the vehicle with the aim of reducing fuel consumption and emissions, ensuring engine cooling at every operating point and optimising interior comfort.

Experience more

Increasing customer demands for more power output and at the same time for more environmentally friendly engines result in requirements for lower fuel consumption and emissions.
