Powertrain optimization using electrohydraulic system

Synopsis: Partial or full integration of electric solutions into off-highway vehicles is an opportunity to optimize working equipment such as excavators, harvesters or material handling machinery. When used in closed-loop circuits, hydrostatic drives offer a simple, robust and efficient solution for energy recovery and performance optimization. Poclain Hydraulics and its customer engineering experts have developed innovative solutions by taking the best of both worlds thanks to hydraulic high-performance solutions and electrohydraulic systems. This presentation will illustrate that using real case applications, such as excavator slew drive, harvester ground drive and winches.
