TARDEC Hybrid Vehicles

Two ATS Permanent Magnet Brushless DC controllers are installed in each TARDEC (US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center) ULV research vehicles. Four vehicles were delivered to TARDEC for evaluation in 2012.


  • Liquid cooled high power DC to AC Inverter for Permanent Magnet Brushless DC or AC Induction Motors
  • Configured for 300V or 700V nominal battery voltage
  • Automatic over-speed protection
  • Regenerative braking provides smooth, powerful, braking down to almost standstill. This feature greatly prolongs life of mechanical brakes


  • Input Supply: 100VDC to 900VDC
  • Output Current: 450A – 900A Peak (30 sec)
  • Output Power @ 700VDC: 300kVA – 600kVA Peak (30 sec)
  • Output Power @ 350VDC: 150kVA – 300kVA Peak (30 sec)
