Power generation system

  • 25-Mar-2011 01:00 EDT

The Kollmorgen Power Generation System delivers power at the desired voltage and adapts to commercial and military vehicle upgrades. The complete platform consisting of a Kollmorgen permanent magnet ac generator, controller, software, and cables can fit in tight space applications and can meet any heavy-duty hybrid vehicle’s energy requirements and power needs at low or high voltage, ac, dc, or both. A modular design accommodates upgrades and retrofits without needing to replace the generator, wiring, or drive electronics. The generator provides improved power density within the same space as a traditional alternator, can be air- or liquid-cooled, and can be mounted in belt-driven, PTO, or inline configurations. The controller can withstand demanding environments, while shielded cables perform in temperatures up to 260°C (500°F).
