48 V Power Architecture
A newly emerging technology in the xEV vehicle world is that of 48 V dual-voltage architecture MHEV systems. In these vehicles, the primary voltage source is a 48 V Lithium Ion (Li-ion) battery pack. These 48 V battery packs are capable of driving much higher power loads, as compared to the 12 V battery. They are charged by the output of a permanent magnetic electric machine, called an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) or Belt Starter Generator (BSG). The Starter/Generator functions as both the starter, and generator. It charges the battery and supplies current to the various 48 V vehicle loads. Starter/Generators come in various sizes, shapes, and power levels. They can be mounted at various locations along the powertrain, depicted as P0-P4, with the highest power rated types located on the vehicle’s transmission or rear axle.
