GKN Automotive introduces new inverter for 800 V systems

GKN Automotive has launched a new inverter, which is designed for EVs with 800 V systems, but also compatible with 400 V systems. It’s part of the company’s eDrive product line.

“The performance we have been able to deliver with the new inverter is an important next step in our mission to drive a cleaner, more sustainable world, as we’ve been able to vastly increase performance and improve efficiency,” says Director of Systems Engineering at GKN Automotive Christoph Gillen.

Compared to the previous generation of its inverter, the company says the new inverter increases power output by 20%, boosts power density by 50%, raises the power-to-weight ratio by 60% and decreases the copper content by 63%.
