Reducing range anxiety by reducing harness weight using power modules
Presented by YK Choi, Sr. Field application engineer, Vicor, APAC
12V wire harnesses represent significant weight and cost in modern complex vehicles. Reducing weight frees space and increases range, which is so important today. Stepping up voltage is a more efficient approach to transferring power around the vehicle through thinner wire harnesses, which weigh less. This new innovative approach can easily be implemented with SAC ratio metric modules to step up and step down the voltage efficiently using power modules while appreciably reducing harness weight.
