  • Publication number: 20210146765
    Abstract: A support device of a vehicle battery pack of a vehicle. The vehicle battery pack includes a first battery accommodating portion disposed in a first space of the vehicle and a second battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is greater in a vehicle-widthwise dimension than the first battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is connected to the first battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is disposed in a second space, and where the second space is below the first space in a vehicle-heightwise dimension. A frame-side bracket is disposed at a vehicle-widthwise outer surface of a web of a side rail of a ladder frame of the vehicle and projects outward in a vehicle-widthwise direction and a connecting member elastically connects the second battery accommodating portion to the frame-side bracket to suspend the vehicle battery pack to the ladder frame.

  • Publication number: 20200266403
    Abstract: Battery module for a propulsion battery system of an electrical vehicle, comprising a plurality of battery cells, arranged in a cooling volume for containing a cooling fluid for cooling the battery cells, and a plurality of wall elements defining the cooling volume. One of the wall elements (33) comprises an inner surface (110), oriented towards one of the battery cells, for contacting the cooling fluid, and an outer surface forming an exterior surface of the battery module. The inner surface is shaped to define a plurality of grooves (130) or a plurality of ridges for increasing the contact surface between the wall element and the cooling fluid, and for directing the flow of the cooling fluid in the cooling volume.

  • Publication number: 20100326778
    Abstract: A brake pedal simulator for a brake system of a motor vehicle has a chamber with hydraulic fluid which is limited by a first piston coupled to a brake pedal, a second piston having restoring means for producing a restoring force, and a third piston driving a pressure transducer. The first and second pistons are functionally connected together by the hydraulic fluid when a first valve is open to transmit the restoring force to the first piston upon movement against the hydraulic fluid. This first functional connection is interrupted when the first valve is closed. The first and second pistons are functionally connected together by the hydraulic fluid when a second valve is open to transmit movement of the first piston to the third piston. This second functional connection is interrupted when the second valve is closed.
