ePROPELLED

UAV ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS

ePropelled has the broadest range of electrical power systems for mission-critical UAV applications.

Our electrical Power Systems family includes Starter Generators, Intelligent Power Systems, and Electronic Engine Starters. These modular components can be mixed and matched to supply 500 watts to 12 kW power.  Our SGs have enough torque to start the engine while providing power like an alternator. Only ePropelled can use our unique technology to enable hybrid applications.

OUR HIGH-PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS COMBINE OUR PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR CUSTOMERS’ DEMANDING APPLICATIONS:

FLY HIGHER: Our unique cooling features enable UAVs to fly higher in thinner air where cooling is a challenge.
FLY LONGER: Our systems provide best-in-class power and thrust per weight ratio to meet mission parameters. 
FLY SMARTER: Our systems are smarter, using standards-based CAN gives you access to all sensor data. 

Our systems are designed and built in the US for commercial, security, and defense applications. Standard products are available off the shelf to simplify your build process. We welcome inquiries for your unique requirements as well.

The ePropelled Hybrid Ready™ UAV product line operates with internal combustion engines to provide electrical power to the aircraft. ePropelled is the first vendor to enable the power system to work in hybrid mode. The power systems offer UAV designers the unique option to add hybrid technology to optimize engine size while using the battery for power assist on take-off, range extension, or emergency landings. This allows customers to use a smaller engine for situations that demand high power such as take-off or to extend the range of the aircraft using battery power.

Two product features make Hybrid Ready™ possible. First, our starter-generators have enough torque to start the engine in addition to supplying power (like an alternator) during flight. Second, the design of our Electronic Engine Starter (EES) allows for this dual operation to use battery power to both start the engine and add power for propulsion. Keeping weight and cost low while extending flight time are important to the applications our customers support. This approach also allows the aircraft to be self-contained when starting the engine.

The Hybrid Ready™ electrical power systems family includes all our Starter-Generators, Intelligent Power Systems (also known as power management units or PMUs), and Electronic Engine Starters. These modular components can be mixed and matched to supply from 500 watts to 12 kW of power.

Our Power Product Family:

STARTER GENERATORS

Starter Generators use the mechanical energy from the internal combustion engine (ICE). ePropelled has a family of starter generators ranging from 500 Watts to 12 kW. While our SGs provide the same power generation as an alternator, they have enough torque to start the engine. When paired with our power electronics, the SGs can also support hybrid applications.

Electric Starter Generators

INTELLIGENT POWER SYSTEMS

ePropelled’s Intelligent Power Systems take the AC generated by the SG and convert it to DC to power the onboard systems. The iPS also gathers sensor data and provides access via an industry-standard CAN bus.

Electric Starter Generators

ELECTRONIC ENGINE STARTERS

The Electronic Engine Starters use an onboard battery to send power to the starter generator to start the engine. This allows the UAV to be completely self-contained. The EES also allows the SG to function as a battery-powered motor for hybrid applications including power assist for take-off and extended range for emergency landings.
