Modern hybrid propulsion systems find their ways into more and more applications. This is also valid for marine and rail applications which hugely can profit from this innovative technology. A rigorously optimized system integration combining the well proven diesel engine with highly innovative electrical components and modules leads to significant reduction of fuel consumption, CO2 and noise emission and increase of comfort. Therefore, environment and customers profit equally from this solution. Critical to success is the system view rather than the component view. The individual components and modules need to be integrated in a way that all interactions are considered and controlled for optimal performance. Smart control algorithms and systems finally make the performance benefits happen.
