Demonstrating product reliability is a common challenge within industry, and one that has become continuously more difficult to address due to the marketplace demands for decreased development time and cost. This challenge presents industry with new constraints as proven reliability assessment techniques are becoming increasingly difficult to apply due to the test duration standing in conflict with resource demands placed on engineering organizations. These limitations represent the main influence behind this paper, which explores an alternative reliability demonstration approach using quantitative accelerated life testing (QALT). Accelerated life testing is a reliability discipline that has been the focus of much research, and from which a great many publications have been derived. Yet many proposed approaches can be difficult to apply within industry due to the aforementioned resource constraints, and therefore an alternative methodology will be proposed that delivers accurate reliability data within the aforementioned constraints, thus addressing the limitations imposed by conventional reliability demonstration tests. © 2010 IEEE.

A voltage stabilization device is proposed for use in a motor vehicle. The voltage stabilization device comprises a first terminal for connecting the device with an energy source, in particular to a vehicle battery; a second terminal for connecting the device having a starting device of a motor vehicle; a current limiter module for limiting a starting current; a control unit for controlling the current limiting module, and at a starting operation detector coupled with the control unit for detecting a starting operation, wherein the current limiting module carries out a starter current limiting action on the basis of a start signal of the process startup detector.

Methods and apparatuses for voltage dip stabilization in a motor vehicle are described herein. The apparatus of one embodiment includes a first connection for connecting the apparatus to an energy source, in particular to a vehicle battery and a second connection for connecting the apparatus to a starting apparatus of a motor vehicle. The apparatus also includes a current-limiting module for limiting a starter current, a control unit for driving the current-limiting module, and at least one starting process detector, which is connected to the control unit, for identifying a starting process. The control unit, on the basis of a starting process signal from the starting process detector, prompts the current-limiting module to carry out a starter current-limiting measure.
