This standard will be an updated version of SAEJ548/1. It is intended to specify the design requirements and dimensions for spark plugs and their cylinder head mounting. This standard will cover automotive, light duty non-automotive and small engine spark plugs. It does not include aircraft and large industrial engine type spark plugs..
a) Creation of a standard specific to integration of energy storage systems into electrification of buses of all types which comprehends safety, performance, life and cost considerations utilizing worldwide standards as references in order to maximize existing work. The document applies to both purpose built electric buses and retrofit electrified buses. b) Harmonization of these existing standards achieve specific objectives that provide guidance in effective and safe designs of electrificed buses which utilize battery pack systems as the energy storage device. c) Future Considerations
This SAE Standard specifies the minimum performance recommendation for spark plugs intended for use in various internal combustion engines including Automotive, Marine, Motorcycle and Utility engine applications. This standard is not intended to supply information for spark plugs used in aircraft applications of any type.
The intent of this document is to consider the type of information reported by the battery management system (BMS) and recommended discharge level dependent on a collision or vehicle fire. The document does not describe how the energy should be extracted.
This test protocol is being developed to create a voluntary guideline for manufacturers of PEV Small Task Oriented Vehicles (STOV’s) to use to validate the range of their vehicles. The intent is to develop a laboratory test protocol for range testing that is repeatable and can be conducted using common dynamometer testing facilities.
This document covers the recommended practices associated with reporting the vehicle’s (hybrid and pure electric) battery pack performance details to the automobile user. Specifically, performance details refer to the amount of stored energy available for use by the vehicle’s hybrid or pure electric drive system. These practices detail the accuracies, error conditions and other reporting and diagnostic requirements responsible for delivering an accurate assessment of the amount of available electrochemical fuel.
Battery Mechanics address the interest and need in the understanding of mechanics of the high voltage, high power density batteries and the technologies for vehicle integration. The 7 papers in this technical paper collection cover topics such as crash/impact performance, modal performance, durability and reliability performance, thermal performance, battery packs and vehicle integration in electric or hybrid-electric vehicles (EV or HEV or PHEV), multi-disciplinary performance optimization, and robust optimization.
Batteries pose one of the biggest challenges and opportunities on the road to electrifying the automobile. The 17 papers in this technical paper collection discuss the success or failure of hybrid, plug-in, and electric vehicles and their batteries.
The success of HEV's, PHEV's & EV's is highly dependent on their batteries. This technical paper collection focuses on advanced battery technologies, including, but not limited to: advanced materials and cell chemistries, battery management systems and controls, modeling, testing, diagnosis and health monitoring, safety, reliability, durability, battery charging, battery economics/cost reduction, and system integration/optimization. These topics can be addressed at the cell, module, pack or vehicle levels.

There are many macro drivers that are creating opportunities for transportation electrification. They include the environment, dependence on foreign oil, national security, battery technology and government incentives to name a few. In light of this growing momentum consumers will have choices to where they can charge ? at home, workplace or publicly. Electrical vehicle supply equipment will drive value throughout the supply chain ? installer, building owner, automaker, suppliers, utilities and consumers. Market acceptance will occur when consumer?s needs and wants are met. To meet these needs access to products through multiple channels will be required.

Electric vehicle codes and standards play a key role in deployment of interoperable charging and communication infrastructure. Harmonization of those standards on a global basis, even though they are not identical, they need to be compatible. There are a comprehensive set of EV standards, even standards to ensure that the EV, EVSE, energy measurement and electric utility are compatible (SAE J2953). This presentation is a summary of the state of standards and some of the commercial deployment of equipment that meets these standards. Presenter Eric Rask, Argonne National Laboratory
The presentation offers a brief history of the electric vehicle and parallels the realities of those early vehicles with the challenges and solutions of the electrified vehicles coming to market today. A technology evolution for every major component of these vehicles has now made this mode of transportation viable. The Focus Electric is Ford's first electric passenger car utilizing the advanced technology developments to meet the needs of electric car buyers in this emerging market. Presenter Charles Gray, Ford Motor Co.
With the introduction of the Chevrolet Volt, the Electrification of the Automobile begins in earnest, by offering a car that runs off of grid energy that has mass market appeal. The Volt offers a vehicle which is driven primarily by electricity under ?real world? driving conditions, while not presenting the driver with inconvenient choices about range and recharge time, or the disconcerting experience of a real possibility of becoming stranded. The Voltec powertrain arrangement enables the Volt to be an Extended Range Electric Vehicle, or E-REV and gives full performance utilizing only electrical energy from the grid for most driving, and a seamless transition to gasoline energy for longer and less frequent trips to maintain full vehicle utility. General Motors and its suppliers has had to the lead developments of fundamental component technologies that were not addressed by earlier, more simple hybridization work.
The BMW Group has introduced electric cars to the market with the MINI E already in 2009. The next step will be the launch of the BMW ActiveE in 2011, followed by the revolutionary Mega City Vehicle in 2013. The presentation will explain the BMW Group strategy for implementing sustainable mobility. A focus will be emobility, the use of carbon fiber and the holistic sustainability approach of BMW Group?s project i. Reference will be made to the research results of the MINI E projects in the US and in Europe. Presenter Andreas Klugescheid, BMW AG
