Hybrid transmission

  • 07-Apr-2011 04:40 EDT

The ZF hybrid component of the ErgoPower series offers improved environmental protection and covers electric machines and complete hybrid systems from one source. Systems are suitable for all ZF transmission forms and can be implemented for direct and separate mounting. Benefits include increased output and a reduction of exhaust emissions. Fuel consumption is decreased by the start/stop function. Other features include recuperation of braking energy, shifting of engine operation, downsizing options, and simplified exhaust aftertreatment systems. The ErgoPower works as a parallel hybrid with an electric machine, providing up to 85 or 120 kW (114 or 161 hp), depending on size. Integrated into the transmission, the complete system comprises power electronics and a lithium-ion battery as well as a control unit for applications including wheel loaders, diesel lift trucks, and excavators.
