low voltage Power Generation System is a lightweight solution being used by the United States
Army for board vehicle power (OBVP) generation to their Fuel-Efficient
Ground Vehicle Demonstrator (FED). Kollmorgen says the system enables the FED Alpha vehicle to
provide 30kW of power at 28V dc, over a wide engine operating band. Kollmorgen's
low voltage power generation platform consists of flexible power electronics
that support multiple generator configurations and mild hybrid
capability. The generator system used in the FED vehicle is an in-line
ISG 28V dc, 30kW liquid cooled generator with three 10 kW air cooled power
electronics modules, which communicate on J1939 software protocol. The low
voltage platform also includes a belt driven air cooled generator that produces
30kW at 28V dc, utilizing the same controllers as the ISG system.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
