Electrification of Heavy Equipment: A system modeling approach for pre-sizing and design

On-Demand Webinar | 51 minutes

A five-part webinar series on addressing the challenges faced by the Heavy Equipment and Off-Highway industry.

The Heavy Equipment industry is facing many challenges with electrification, autonomous driving and IoT.
The Heavy Equipment industry is facing many challenges with electrification, autonomous driving and IoT.

This session will cover how a system engineer can model a conventional 45-ton excavator, determine areas of improvements by electrifying the powertrain and components, as well as validate and optimize the design. We will also cover how fuel cells may be used as an alternate powertrain.
