The U.S. Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) showcases its electronic power control and conditioning (EPCC) module. Built in partnership with NextEnergy, the EPCC concurrently accepts and manages widely varying electric inputs from power sources such as solar, wind, diesel, and natural gas generation. The device can handle up to six concurrent inputs of varying voltages, including dc and multiple ac frequencies. The EPCC converts the diverse power inputs into a single, efficient, consistent 50- or 60-Hz ac output, providing portable electrical power during critical military or disaster relief operations. Its primary benefits are increased fuel efficiency and power management flexibility.
