Know your options
Here’s a quick overview of your options for going beyond traditional diesel to electric and hybrid propulsion systems. Talk with Twin Disc about your specific needs.
Full electric system eliminates the main diesel engine and its maintenance costs, and cuts fuel costs and emissions. Configurable power-dense energy storage systems efficiently provide the energy needed to power the application.
Serial hybrid system uses an electric motor to replace the traditional main diesel engine, drawing electric power from an onboard energy storage system, onboard gensets, or both.
Parallel hybrid system pairs the diesel engine with an electric motor. This configuration takes advantage of both, allowing for diesel-only, electric-only, peak shaving, and power boost operation.
