The Power Generation System is a complete power platform that meets heavy-duty-vehicle energy requirements.

The Power Generation System is a complete power platform that meets heavy-duty-vehicle energy requirements.

The system consists of a permanent-magnet ac generator, generator, software, and cables, and can support a vehicle’s power needs at low or high voltage, ac, dc, or both. The modular design accommodates upgrades and retrofits without the need to replace the generator, wiring, or drive electronics.

The generator is said to provide twice the power density of a traditional alternator, can be air or liquid cooled, and can be mounted in belt-driven, PTO, or inline configurations. The controller is engineered to withstand the most demanding commercial and military environments. Cables are shielded, optimized for heavy-duty vehicle applications, consume little space and weight, and perform in temperatures up to 260°C.
