More electric power in vehicles

When we think about retrofit programs or new power train concepts, features such as packing density and degree of integration increasingly play a decisive role, alongside traditional requirements such as performance and robustness. Our integrated starter generators, which are sandwiched as a flat disc between the combustion engine and the transmission for the mechanical drive train, and which render the alternator, starter and flywheel superfluous, make a significant contribution here. They deliver a multiple of the output of conventional alternators. The elimination of these mounted parts and their transmission of power from and to the engine (belt drive, clutch engagement and release mechanism) reduces the level of complexity and failure rate. An additional high-voltage output enables supplying electric power to external users as required (electric export power). A vehicle equipped in this way can be used as a mobile power plant that can be deployed in a short time, and that can therefore replace or supplement static and cumbersome infrastructure elements.

Magnet-Motor has the know-how and experience in all-electric drive systems and can provide a range of references, particularly for in-hub wheel drives.  The mechanical drive train is completely replaced by the electric drive made up of the generator at the combustion engine and electric drive motors. For wheeled vehicles, the elimination of the mechanical power transmission elements can be used for the design of a lower vehicle silhouette. The drive motors are controlled independently, increasing the mobility of the vehicle and allowing a range of manoeuvres that are not possible with a mechanical drive, for example, a minimal curve radius up to and including pivot turn and widely extendable wheel-suspension for extreme ground clearance.
