We are now testing the electric motor from our hybrid electric propulsion system. Guess what, this motor weighs 12kg only!
You might know that it requires 20kW to propel a typical Pilot Boat at 6 knots. So, how much power do you think this motor can produce? 40kW continuous and 80 kW peak!
Special features of the chosen inverter include ability to run a very compact 10 poles motor at high speed and to deal with a wide range of voltage range produced by the electric motor. Therefore, the batteries can be charged at a wide range of speeds.
