NVH Aspects of Electric Drive Unit Development and Vehicle Integration 2019-01-1454
The automotive industry continues to develop new powertrain and vehicle technologies aimed at reducing overall vehicle-level fuel consumption. Specifically, the use of electrified propulsion systems is expected to play an increasingly important role in helping OEM’s meet fleet CO2 reduction targets for 2025 and beyond. This will also include a strong growth in the demand for electric drive units (EDU).
The change from conventional vehicles to vehicles propelled by EDU leads to a reduction in overall vehicle exterior and interior noise levels, especially during low-speed vehicle operation. Despite the overall noise levels being low, the NVH behavior of such vehicles can be objectionable due to the presence of tonal noise coming from electric machines and geartrain components. In order to ensure customer acceptance of electrically propelled vehicles, it is imperative that these NVH challenges are understood and solved
