An electronically controlled heater element is integrated into the engine coolant thermostat. The purpose of the heater element is to allow the conventional wax thermostat to open at a lower coolant temperature. Greater cooling is required under full load conditions so the thermostat can be opened at a lower temperature to allow greater cooling. The thermostat operates in the conventional way during low or part load conditions. The thermostat heater element has a system voltage supply and a pulse width modulated ground control circuit.
