UAV ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS
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.
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.
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.
