DC link energy as required
Protection of electric drives against voltage fluctuations, reduction of load peaks, off-grid use of regen energy: The requirements and framework conditions can hardly be more different. KTS is a very flexible system with solutions for all cases. The KTS systems from Michael Koch GmbH are ready-to-use energy management systems with a peak power of well over 100 kilowatts and energy levels of up to 1.8 megajoules. The systems are based on a combination of power electronics, super capacitor modules, and additional modules that are perfectly tailored to the specific application.

Safe discharge unit ensures safety
Cabinet maintenance work required whilst the capacities are still charged? To this end, Michael Koch GmbH is introducing a connectible, overload-proof resistor unit. It discharges the capacities to a desired, safe voltage level within a reasonable timeframe. The safe discharge unit with the type designation SDU-200 is able to hold ca. 200 kilowatt-seconds of energy at a discharge capacity of around 1,400 watts.

Easy Sizing of DC link energy
The brand-new tool with intuitive menu navigation eases the initial selection of an appropriate energy management system for Drive Controller: The application and therewith product is preselected, then the data of the application is entered. After a short calculation time, the tool feeds back one or more technically-fitting product configurations as a result.
