Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator

Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator

Kollmorgen's 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.
