Electrifying (the) Future

Fossil fuels and alarming emission levels? We can do better than that!

One out of many essential steps towards an energy-efficient world lies in the soaring popularity - and consequently the use - of electrified two-, three- and four-wheel vehicles. Nowadays, new materials and technologies enable greater power efficiency, smaller size, lighter weight, and lower cost solutions. Consumers look for affordable, clean transportation alternatives to address congestion, poor air quality, and lack of mobility.

Want to play a key role in accelerating the transition to e-mobility with your products? Then turn to a true expert, a leader in power, sensing and security solutions: Infineon.

LEVs: an increasingly important EV sub-category

Types of plug-in electric vehicles

Besides conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, the industry currently distinguishes based on the all-electric range (AER) and the level of hybridization between the following types of electric vehicles:

  • All-electric vehicles (long-range and limited range versions)
  • Gasoline-electric hybrids (range-extended and minimal range versions)

What they all have in common is the fact that for charging their high-energy battery an off-board charging infrastructure is needed which happens to be fundamentally different from the well-developed infrastructure for fueling gasoline-powered vehicles. Charging options vary: AC level 1 chargers use the electric service present in almost every building. DC fast chargers require higher levels of voltage not to be found everywhere, i.e. provided only by specifically installed commercial fast-charging stations with higher charging rates.

Three-hurdles slowing mass deployment of plug-in electric EVs

When focusing on the mass deployment of all-electric vehicles and gasoline-electric hybrids, the challenges currently recognized can be summarized in three main hurdles:

  • the high initial investment
  • the limited charging infrastructure available
  • and consumer misperceptions about their operation

In other words, battery system cost, battery density, range limitations and charging constraints continue to be impediments to adoption.

The rise of LEVs

The named obstacles have become a trigger for the evolvement of another segment in the EV market: light electric vehicles (LEVs). Compared with other EVs as well as with conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, they are extremely low priced what makes them affordable even to the financially underprivileged and hence attractive for emerging markets where a transition to electrified mobility is in progress (e.g. rickshaws into e-rickshaws, scooters into e-scooters)! They can be charged from the grid (e.g. power plugs in private homes) and hence, do not necessarily require installation of a specific charging infrastructure. And due to an extremely simple configuration both - their functioning and handling - are easy to understand. Targets are clearly those driving short distances at lower speed not holding a driving license as for LEVs no certification – neither for the vehicle, nor for the driver - is legally stipulated until today. Depending on the purpose of use there are variants with and without space for carry-on items. And most importantly, they fulfill the zero emissions mandate.

Currently, the LEV market in units is six to ten times larger than the one for plug-in EVs. Already in the near future, LEVs are expected to be highly integrated with automated vehicle technology, i.e. sensors. The industry has seen an incredibly fast rate of conversion from internal combustion engines to full electrical drives (e.g. approximately 62 percent of the number of forklift units sold in 2018 have already been electrical).

LEV industry characteristics and customer challenges

Infineon is aware of its customers’ major challenges and the impactful characteristics of the LEV industry:

High Power Light Electric Vehicles

High power LEVs can be separated from the rest of lower power LEVs by the following characteristics:

  • power levels: 10 kW – 30+ kW
  • voltage range: 48 V – 144 V
  • mostly four-wheelers with space for carry-on items (e.g. used for material handling in industrial surroundings, passenger transportation with any sort of baggage)
  • value drivers: system cost, efficiency / operating range

Target applications:

  • E-forklifts
  • Light utility vehicles (LUVs)
  • Low speed electric vehicles (LSEVs / MicroEVs)
  • E-motorbikes
  • Golf carts

High power LEVs are named differently depending on the country of jurisdiction. In China, they are known as small EV cars, low speed EV cars, or micro EV cars. In the European Union four-wheeled microcars are categorized as quadricycles, and in the US as neighborhood electric vehicles.

The category of high power LEVs also covers some ‘off-highway’ electric vehicles, such as material handling equipment, golf carts, and people movers. For these applications, an increased operating range is needed to prevent interruptions in the flow of materials and people.

Downturns of the global trend:

  • Negative environmental effects resulting from the extensive use of lead-acid batteries
  • Lack of regulations for LSEV manufacturers leads to substandard safety performance
  • Suboptimal acceleration and fairly low top speed levels
  • Violations of traffic regulations as controls are difficult given the non-existence of legal obligations for specific documentation, neither for the driver nor the LSEVs (e.g. driving in bike lanes)

As consequence, the Chinese government is the first to take drastic measures limiting the proliferation of low quality LSEVs. Instead of using lead-acid batteries manufacturers are encouraged to focus on lithium-ion battery versions with extended operating range and improved battery power densities, along with mandatory safety tests.

Infineon’s solutions respond exactly to these latest developments in the field. They enable LSEV manufacturers to upgrade their product portfolio with the shortest time to market. More precisely, they extend the battery life time of e-forklifts, LSEVs and e-motorbikes while providing robust performance at competitive costs. Via a modular approach a wide range of application voltages and power levels can be covered. The customer is offered a vast assortment of products for almost the entire LEV-system including motor control units, hydraulic units, and air conditioning units (depending on the specific application).

Low Power Light Electric Vehicles

Low power LEVs can be separated from the rest of higher power LEVs by the following characteristics:

  • power level: 1 kW – 10 kW
  • voltage range: 24 V – 72 V
  • two- and three-wheelers
  • main purpose: short distance passenger transport
  • value drivers: system cost, power density

Target applications:

  • E-scooters (standing / self-balancing and folding types)
  • E-bikes
  • E-rickshaws / E-three-wheelers

In contrast to the relatively small volumes of EVs, millions of electrified two-wheelers have already been sold worldwide. Especially in emerging Asian markets (India, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc.), where two-wheelers are considered by many as the “family car”, a fast transition to electric versions is noticeable. Why? The environmentally friendly vehicles offer a very high degree of mobility combined with convenience and other fun factors. All that at much lower initial and operational costs compared to typical EVs. Emission-free driving versus congested city traffic – governments around the globe are alerted that it is time for greener politics in favor of light e-mobility (e.g. supporting innovative concepts such as dockless e-scooter sharing services or downtown traffic area accessible only via e-two-wheelers).

And not to forget about the electric-vehicle revolution silently happening in India, that is not at all related to cars. E-rickshaws are taking India’s cities, ten of which according to the World Health Organization rank among the world’s most polluted, by storm. They are quieter, faster, cleaner and cheaper to maintain than traditional auto rickshaws. At the moment growth is only slowed by missing government subsidies for charging infrastructure improvements and easy financing options for owners of traditional rickshaws who wish to switch. Once these are solved sales will most likely exceed a double digit million figure per year if India focuses on electrifying two-wheelers and three-wheelers. Already today, the South Asian nation is home to about 1.5 million battery-powered, three-wheeled rickshaws – a fleet bigger than the total number of electric passenger cars sold in China since 2011.

Top performance versus cost optimization

When it comes to high volume production, the range and speed of low power LEV applications are distinguishing factors. No matter if customers work on designs with either top performance targets or rather concentrate on cost optimization, Infineon is prepared to deliver the products they require. With best-in-class solutions for motor control, our customers may maximize levels of space and/or volume savings (e.g. essential for two-wheelers). StrongIRFET™ MOSFETs, to the contrary, are to be chosen for the development of cost optimized solutions whenever space and weight do not form limiting parameters (e.g. for three-wheelers).

iMOTION™ - Digital motor control for e-bikes and e-scooters (see also recommended products)

One particular set of products suitable for low power two-wheelers such as e-bikes and folding e-scooters are Infineon’s iMOTION™ motor control ICs. Integrated into these ICs are all the control and analog interface functions required for sensor-less, field-oriented control (FOC) of PM motors using DC link or leg shunt current measurements. In addition, they feature Infineon’s patented and field-proven motor control engine (MCE) that eliminates software coding from the motor control algorithm development process. Implementing a variable speed drive is reduced to configuring the MCE for the respective motor. Assisted by powerful tools like MCEWizard and MCEDesigner it is possible to have the motor up and running in less than an hour. By comprising both, the required hardware and software to perform sensor-less control of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), iMOTION™ ICs provide the highest energy efficient motor system with the lowest system cost for the named applications.

Battery Chargers for Light Electric Vehicles

Off-board versus on-board battery chargers

Depending on their power requirements, LEV batteries can be charged either directly from the grid (i.e. any standard wall outlet) through a dedicated on-board charger or through the use of a low cost off-board charger.

Off-board chargers are more suitable if:

  • the LEV can be easily located / moved close to the charger (even with an empty battery!) (i.e. e-bikes, folding e-scooters)
  • the LEV battery does not require a complex battery management system, e.g. low cost sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries (i.e. low cost scooters, electrical wheelchairs)
  • whenever charging requires very high power, because of limitations of weight/volume on the vehicle itself – as is the case for electrical forklifts

AC on-board chargers are more suitable if:

  • more flexibility in charging is needed (no special infrastructure has to be installed, no need to carry additional charging equipment) (i.e. low speed EVs (quadricycles), golf carts, small electric lift trucks)
  • more complex battery management systems are used, e.g. for Lithium ion batteries (i.e. high power e-scooters)

The on-board charger’s performance is evaluated by its power-conversion efficiency and power quality (i.e. total harmonic distortion and power factor). As for all items installed in the vehicle, size (the smaller, the better), weight (the lighter, the better), and lifetime (the longer, the better) are critical parameters. Conventional on-board chargers usually have a two-stage structure consisting of a power factor correction (PFC) stage and a DC–DC power-conversion stage. This specific structure brings along major drawbacks such as low efficiency and circuit complexity, and a bulky intermediate DC link capacitor. Due to high current flowing through the intermediate DC link capacitor significant power loss is caused, what considerably reduces the capacitor lifetime, eventually leading to capacitor failure. As an alternative to the two-stage structure single-stage approaches are being investigated with the aim to eliminate the PFC stage and reduce the DC link capacitance.

Energy efficiency – critical factor in developing countries

At this moment, the battery charger market for LEVs is mostly cost driven, as most LEVs being sold today are low cost two- and three-wheelers. However, as the number of LEVs is expected to grow further, the efficiency becomes particularly important. Taking into account that the vast majority of LEVs sold each year are deployed in developing countries with weak local power grids, every percentage point of efficiency increase translates into significant energy savings. A noteworthy relief of the national power networks!

Infineon’s LEV battery charger solutions

Infineon’s LEV on-board and off-board battery charger solutions comprised of power MOSFETs, gate driver ICs, PWM/flyback based controllers, integrated power stage ICs and microcontrollers are optimized to fit any system. In order to satisfy as many customer requirements as possible different topologies are available and meeting a variety of cost / performance optimization targets is possible.

Customers benefit from small form factors, best-in-class performance ratio (attractive pricing with competitive long term price down roadmap), easy-to-use technologies, powerful and reliable components.

 

OPTIGA™ Trust – Authentication at its best (see also recommended products)

Another particular aspect of interest for chargers is their close connection with the type of battery stacks that they are supposed to charge. Practically, any LEV manufacturer selects different variants of batteries that best fit its own, very specific applications. The battery chargers must hence be designed with the proper charging algorithms for the corresponding battery stacks chosen by the LEV manufacturer. It is not advisable to connect any charger type to any battery! Otherwise there can be a significant risk of damaging the batteries, and void the manufacturer’s warranty. Infineon’s OPTIGA™ Trust security solution is easy to use and implement, and will ensure that only the right type of charger is used in connection with a certain type of battery, reducing the risk of hazardous damage/fires.
