The Fraunhofer project group for new drive sys-
tems (NAS) was established in Karlsruhe in 2010.
The project group’s main focus is application-
based research and development to increase the
efficiency of drive systems. The NAS project group
is the outcome of a cooperation between two
Fraunhofer institutes: the Institute for Chemical
Technology (ICT) in Pfinztal and the Institute for
Mechanics of Materials (IWM) in Freiburg. In ad-
dition, the NAS project group maintains close
scientific cooperation with the institute for re-
ciprocating engines (IFKM) at the Karlsruhe In-
stitute of Technology (KIT). The research and
development work of the NAS project group is
reflected in the following fields of work:
• Energy converters / combustion engines
• Hybrid drives
• Thermal management
• Test methods
• Combined heat and power units
• Systems for utilising residual heat
• Lightweight construction in drive-trains
To manage the projects in these fields of work,
the NAS project group relies on its internal
capacities in the areas of construction, simula-
tion and testing. They use the latest software tools,
such as CATIA V5 for design and GT Power, MatLab
Simulink and CFD calculations for simulation
and design. To test close-to-series concepts, we
have highly flexible engine test stands at our
Karlsruhe site.
