Delphi's Energen family of energy-management systems can provide additional electrical power for a range of functions.
These include: a stop-start system that shuts off the engine when it is idling, then restarts the engine through an accessory belt when the driver wants to move again; 42-volt support for the next generation of electrical systems; and electric power assist on hybrid vehicles.
The Energen Hybrid Electric Propulsion System was used on the Dodge ESX3 concept car shown early this year.
The hybrid ESX3 featured a high-energy air-cooled motor with an integrated power electronics system.
An Energen stop-start system is scheduled to be put in a production car in Europe next year.
The system can improve city fuel economy by more than 5 percent in vehicles with small engines, according to Delphi.
The systems also allow quieter engine starts and smoother acceleration.
