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