Fuel economy optimization has a crucial effect on achieving global climate targets due to the continuing dominance of the internal combustion engine. At the same time, however, we must pave the way for powertrain electrification since this will enable us to increase engine efficiency to an even greater degree – eventually culminating in emission-free electric cars.

In this context the leading European automakers agreed in 2011 on an additional 48-volt vehicle electrical system as a cost-efficient entry-level option for vehicle hybridization. High electric power levels can be provided within the 48-volt electrical system, and functions such as recuperation can be efficiently implemented. Electrifying ancillary components that were previously powered by the internal combustion engine will reduce engine losses. In addition, a control system that is independent of engine operation, particularly in the thermal management area, makes it possible to achieve fuel-saving operating characteristics through demand-based engine cooling, especially in the cold start phase.

By developing an electrically operated main water pump for 48-volt electrical systems, MAHLE is combining experience and expertise from the areas of thermal management and mechatronics in order to make an early entry into an emerging market and consolidate its role as the leading European supplier of thermal management systems. The resulting knowledge, especially electronics development for integration into the 48-volt electrical system, can also be applied to the development of other ancillary electrical components and will thus support sustainable expansion of the MAHLE mechatronics product line.

The 48V main water pump, with a power output of about 1 kW, offers better possibilities for efficient engine cooling than the previous 400W pumps for 12-volt electrical systems. In addition, it produces the low delivery rates required to also replace the auxiliary water pump. The focus in developing the pump components – pump hydraulics, electric motor and control electronics – was on maximum efficiency along with smaller installation space and weight savings. The efficiency-optimized pump impeller is driven by a wet motor, the rotor of which runs in the cooling medium. The use of a brushless motor reduces the number of moving parts subject to wear. The power electronics integrated into the pump housing heats up during pump operation and is therefore cooled by a specially developed, patented heat dissipation concept. This also prevents the temperature from exceeding the recommended operating levels when there are high coolant temperatures, such as when the motor is slowing down.

Because we work closely with the OEMs, the 48V main water pump is an ideal answer to customer needs. Initial tests on specially developed test rigs have already been run.
