GKN plc confirmed the retirement of Marcus Bryson from the GKN Board with effect from close of business on 31 December 2014.

GKN to Supply Gyrodrive Electric Flywheel Hybrid Systems to Alexander Dennis

GKN has announced that it will supply 250 Gyrodrive electric flywheel hybrid systems to Alexander Dennis. Alexander Dennis will initially focus on introducing the low emission technology to bus fleets in London (United Kingdom) and Oxford (United Kingdom), but expects rapid deployment across the United Kingdom during the next few years. It will also work with GKN to develop the technology for international markets. The Gyrodrive system features a high-speed composite flywheel paired with a GKN EVO electric motor. This recoups braking energy, which is otherwise lost as heat. As the driver applies brakes, a traction motor fitted on one of the axles reduces the vehicle speed while simultaneously generating electricity. The electricity is then used to charge the flywheel spinning it at up to 36,000 rpm.

GKN plc Produces Two-Speed eAxle for Hybrids and EVs

GKN plc has produced the two-speed eAxle. The technology has entered production on the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car. GKN's two-speed eAxle also enables the motor and all its associated systems to be downsized, reducing mass and further increasing efficiency. eAxle technology enables automakers to produce "axle-split hybrids". A conventional or hybridised engine provides the primary power to either the front or rear wheels, with the other axle driven by an eAxle module. The technology responds intelligently to deliver an instant high-torque all-wheel drive experience, a useful pure electric range or a refined, efficient parallel hybrid mode. No other hybrid architecture offers such a strong combination of efficiency, traction, dynamics and packaging. Using a fixed ratio limits electric drives in terms of either acceleration or top speed as they must disconnect at certain speeds to prevent the motor overspinning. GKN's two-speed eAxle is the first to enable the electric drive to boost the vehicle's performance across its entire speed range. Designing the two-speed eAxle for a high-performance sports car application placed tight packaging requirements on GKN's development team. To achieve high torque density in a package that weighs just 27kg and measures less than 325mm by 562mm by 313mm, some remarkable design decisions were made. To make the system narrower, the shift mechanism sits on the input shaft instead of the intermediate shaft in the middle of the transmission. Even with the input shaft spinning at up to 11,400rpm, GKN's precise software control of the eMotor and the synchro-actuation achieves a smooth gearshift in all conditions.
