New electric buses start in regular service
The Achim-based power electronics specialist Power Innovation Stromversorgungstechnik GmbH was a partner in the modernization of the bus-charging technology at August-Holweg-Platz in Hanover.
Under the leadership of the locally based PROKOT Elektrotechnik GmbH, the first high-performance charging point for charging electric buses during a short break between two line trips is built in Hanover. Power Innovation's DCDC converters, which are fed by the traction current, charge the bus at up to 400A via a pantograph.
The second pantograph installed at this location is supplied from the city's medium-voltage (grid) and shares the power drawn with three car-charging stations. Even here, the intelligent energy management system ensures that the bus can be charged at up to 400A in a prioritized manner.
In Hanover, at the convenient location between A2 and B6, enercity AG, as the charging park operator, has opted for the technology of the E-Charger 600 from ENERCON. In the charging park, enercity AG will install four 4 DC fast charging points in the final stage, each operated with a charging power of max. 350kW.
The E-Charger 600 has been developed in cooperation between ENERCON GmbH and Power Innovation GMBH. It has the currently most powerful charging points for electric vehicles and is intended to enable fast charging for long-distance travel at this location.
