Will on-highway electrification tech work off-highway?

The different requirements of electrification technology for off-highway and on-highway applications will be discussed by David Hoffman of John Deere Power Systems at the upcoming Diesel Progress summit in Louisville on September 30.

Hoffman, who is director of worldwide marketing, sales, and customer support at the company, said electrification technology continued to increase for on-highway automotive, bus and truck vehicles, and there was a logical interest to use these advances in off-highway equipment.

“While there are certainly some aspects of on-highway electrification development that can translate directly to off-highway applications”, said Hoffman, “I will highlight some of the key distinctions when approaching electrification solutions in the off-road industry.”

He said there was a wide array of components to enable the key functions of power generation, power conversion and power usage. He will highlight the importance of creating a balanced electrical and integrated mechanical system to simplify application installation in the early stages of off-road electrification.

Hoffman will also look at some of John Deere’s own experiences. It introduced the 644K Hybrid Wheel Loader in 2013 and the 944K in 2015, making it one of the pioneers in electric drive technology for construction and quarry-sized loaders.

The Diesel Progress Summit is on September 30 in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. The event is on the day before the ICUEE utility equipment exhibition, and is an allied educational event.

The Summit is organized by KHL Group and its magazines Diesel Progress, Diesel Progress International and New Power Progress. To book your place, visit www.dieselprogresssummit.com
