With latest Amplifier Technology
The power converter converts energy of a starter generator into a stabilized high voltage intermediate DC circuit. It supplies various consumers inside and outside a vehicle.
Scope of Application
Integral part of high-performance energy systems in military vehicles.
- High power density
- CAN bus interface
- IP 67
The power converter (GSR) is built into a cast aluminum housing; the unit is water-cooled. The main task of the power converter is to convert the generator’s variable frequency alternating current into a stabilized 750VDC voltage bus. The converter is designed as a 4-quadrant chopper and has the ability to drive the starter-generator either as a motor, e.g. for engine start, as a booster – adding torque – or in generator mode.
The DC outputs are protected against electrical surge. The converter is equipped with various safety features: for instance in case of an electrical fault the main output of the high voltage bus can be completely disconnected by an internal circuit breaker.
The electronic circuits are equipped with EMC filters and connectors suitable for military environments in compliance with MIL-STD 461E.
