Fully electric drive solutions

Technology and application examples of fully electric drive solutions

Fully electric drive solutions are drive solutions that are implemented completely electrically and therefore do not draw any energy from a combustion engine at all but solely from batteries. Note: The solutions with fuel cells could also be interesting to you.

Very high efficiency

High efficiency and low waste heat generation

Low maintenance costs

Maintenance costs are usually considerably lower compared to solutions with combustion engines

Environmentally friendly

No pollutant emissions during operation and low noise

Structure of a fully electric drive solution


In addition to the electric motor and various drive components, fully electric drive systems mainly consist of an electrical energy storage device. In most cases a battery is used, but supercapacitors and fuel cells also have their field of applications. A central role is played here by the inverter (e.g. VECTOPOWER from ARADEX), which is located between the energy storage device and the electric motor. This always supplies the electric motor with current and voltage adapted to the respective drive situation. This process requires precise control, and at ARADEX it also offers the possibility of analyzing the drive process using the optionally integrable “VirtualSensorTechnology” diagnostic tool.



Main potentials of electric drives


Electric drive systems generally achieve high efficiencies from DC voltage to mechanical motion. However, like often in real applications, the differences and thus the potentials lie in the details. In order to achieve the best possible overall efficiency for your application or the application of your customers, we analyze this together with you as part of the detailed design of the drive trains. From numerous analyses and real comparative measurements in the past, we know that potentials of an additional 5% or 10% can be achieved without any performance restrictions.

This means not only a correspondingly lower daily energy requirement and CO2 emissions but also a longer range or smaller and therefore less expensive batteries.

Application areas for fully electric drive solutions


Purely battery-electric drive solutions are economically interesting in case:

  • High peak power levels are accompanied by relatively low continuous power levels
  • The power requirement over a work shift can be estimated with sufficient accuracy

We offer engineering services for designing HV batteries in terms of capacity as well as service life, tailored to your application and your requirements.
