Say goodbye to the automotive starter
ZF’s integrated iSG48 starter-generator module consists of an electric motor with s 48-V inverter. It can be installed directly in the transmission housing. It is an example of what starter motors are morphing into as engines become ICE-electric hybrids. The module puts out 15 kW to support functions such as boosting or optimizing the ICE operation, allowing the combustion engine to be run at the highest level of efficiency. ZF says with 20 kW of alternator output power, the module’s recuperation potential is almost as high as that of high-voltage systems, but the costs are considerably less.
