Om tjänsten

Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.


 In electrified vehicles , the cooling fan provides air flow to the battery cooling circuit, component cooling circuit and electric machine circuit. In heavy electrified vehicles there is a need for higher cooling capacity.

Therefore we need larger electrical fan with higher power and sometimes several cooling fans.


 The project assignment is to study different factors in cooling fan design in order to achieve optimized cooling capacity and air flow in electrified vehicles’ cooling system.

  • Study on optimizing air flow through cooling fan and reaching less noise level
  • Investigation of different installation parameters in order to achieve higher efficiency

Example: distance from the radiator, the angle from radiator etc.

  • Comparison between electrical cooling fan’s efficiency and mechanical cooling fan’s efficiency
  • Study on motor design, what optimal power we need for different blade designs in order to meet required cooling capacity
  • Benchmark of different fan designs to investigate noise level
