DPU Hybrid

The series of Kiepe DPU hybrid converters is designed for use in diesel-electric,
battery-powered or hybrid vehicles. These very compact devices integrate both the power electronics as well as the necessary controls.

As traction converters, they allow asynchronous 100-kW traction motors to be controlled during both acceleration and braking functions. In this way it is possible to recover the high peak power developed during regenerative braking for storage in a suitable system. Space-saving liquid cooling already available in the vehicles is used. Kiepe DPU hybrid converters serve not only as traction converters but also as energy storage converters or generator converters for load distribution between source of energy, energy storage and traction motor. The permissible tolerance range of the supply voltage takes into consideration the special features of the on-board power systems of diesel-engine vehicles.
