LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 21, 2013) – Cummins Generator Technologies today announced availability of its CorePlus™ Motor Generator and Power Electronics technology in the American market.
Cummins believes there is a strong market for engine electrification in medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and has been investing in CorePlus technology, developing electrical Motor Generator and Power Electronics innovation to ensure its global leadership position in the sector.
The Cummins CorePlus Motor Generator will accelerate the evolution of engine electrification and drive even greater improvements in vehicle fuel efficiency and emissions reduction. It is available with power, torque and performance characteristics suitable for hybrid systems, electric vehicle designs, range extender solutions and electrical power generation in vehicles. A Power Electronics package embedding Cummins CorePlus controls software complements the Motor Generator.
The Cummins CorePlus Motor Generator is fitted between the vehicle engine and transmission, allowing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to keep using their preferred engine and transmission. The Motor Generator has an integral rugged housing to allow it to operate in the harsh environment of the engine bay, and has the torsional strength to allow engine torque to be transferred through it to the transmission.
“The class-leading performance of the Cummins CorePlus motor generator has a peak power of 90 kilowatts, peak torque of 660 Newton-meters and efficiencies greater than 95 percent,” said Robert Lee, Executive Director – Power Generation Strategy.
“The Cummins CorePlus controls software enhances the power, performance, safety and efficiency of the power electronics and the Motor Generator combination. Alternate power and performance nodes can be developed cost-effectively to meet specific customer needs,” commented Lee.
The Cummins CorePlus Motor Generator and Power Electronics package will be on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville on March 21, 2013, in Booth 30035.
