A new low-voltage power-generation system consists of flexible power electronics that support multiple generator configurations and mild hybrid capability. The platform includes a belt-driven air-cooled generator that produces 30 kW at 28 Vdc.

The system is being used by the U. S. Army to deliver onboard vehicle power generation to the Fuel-Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator (FED). The generator system used in the FED vehicle is an in-line ISG 28-Vdc, 30-kW liquid-cooled generator with three 10-kW air-cooled power electronics modules that communicate on J1939 software protocol.
