BSPL develops products contributing to CO2 emission reduction of mobility and industrial sectors.
Battery Electric Vehicles
Battery, one of the most important component of electric powertrains, is particularly vulnerable to temperature fluctuations. Maintaining adequate and stable temperature is essential for maximizing the battery’s energetic capabilities. Even a negligible few hours of excessive temperature can decrease the total number of cycles of the manufacturer’s guarantees, reducing its overall effectiveness.
Effective thermal management technology is crucial for optimizing heat waste generated during fast charging. Additionally, proper cooling decreases of the total cost of ownership (TCO) by i.e. shortening charging time (efficient cooling system allows higher charging currents), or decreasing cycle quantity.
BSPL has been designing and manufacturing custom Battery Thermal Management Systems (BTMS) for both commercial vehicle and off-highway applications for a number of years, enabling us to provide established, reliable, and efficient technology to the customers. Our R&D has developed wide portfolio of products for both on-highway (bus, trolleybus), and off-highway (mining, construction vehicles).
Each of our products had been developed in a close cooperation with an OEM customer, providing a perfect fit for the product’s application. We have been developing our on-highway products with a plug&play strategy for time-efficient implementation and ease of use. Our systems are enclosed in compact housing which can be installed both on the roof and powertrain compartment. Devices are equipped with active, passive cooling, heating, water pump, and expansion tank. This design allows for effective and energy saving operation in all ambient conditions where our systems elects the most optimum operation mode.
We offer additional IoT services to further customize and optimize products, extending our scope of R&D activities. Our products are not purely mechanical. Key aspect in Thermal management is software. Our systems have implemented two operation modes that can be used up to customers preference.
First mode allows for control using CAN commands and whole logic needs to be implemented at vehicle side. Second mode uses our years of experience gained in various applications. Such a model device works in automatic mode and it automatically selects best operation parameters.
The off-highway products because of it’s intended use have significantly different design and functions. Our units ensure battery active cooling and additionally refrigerant connections allow for connection of defroster (drivers cabin air conditioning system).
This products are fitting into our strategy of off-highway development, where based on units with different functions we would like to deliver complete thermal management solution not only for powertrain and battery, but also driver comfort. All in duty to decrease energy consumption and increase benefits resulting from electric powertrain.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
Fuel cell is a galvanic cell that converts the chemical energy contained in the fuel into electricity.
This electrochemical process doesn´t involve any mechanical or thermal process and only requires oxygen to initiate the reaction.
The electricity that is generated, in the form of low-voltage DC, provides direct work. In a galvanic fuel cell, whose working principles resemble those of a battery, the fuel and the oxidant (both in gaseous form) correspond to the anode and cathode and are channeled towards the electrolyte to feed the reaction.
Electrolytes can be solid or liquid, operate at high or low temperatures and conduct different specific ions.
