Vehicle thermal management system

01 July 2014

A high voltage recuperation heater from Reo UK is claimed to improve thermal management in electric vehicles.

The REOHM BWD330 high voltage recuperation heater brings efficiency improvements to the vehicle thermal management systems used in electric vehicles, says REO.
It is claimed to reduce energy consumption and offers increased cooling efficiency during emergency braking. In conventional fuel engines, any waste heat generated is usually reused to heat the cabin. Electric vehicles use electrical energy for heating both the cabin and the batteries during winter, however, this can diminish battery life, increase running costs and detract from the potential maximum range. Minimising the dependency on the battery, using the energy generated from the act of braking, which is stored and reused for heating as and when required, lowers energy consumption, according to the company.
