Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial Division extended its traction inverter product portfolio. These latest CWTIs offer an efficient design for use in hybrid and pure-electric applications for on-highway and off-highway commercial vehicles. The motor control software within a CWTI ensures that adaptive tuning creates high efficiency between the inverter and motor
The latest CWTI models launched as 420-kW vehicle-grade traction inverters for single (CWTI-S420) or dual (CWTI-D420) motor applications. To provide flexibility, the functionality of both models operates with multiple motor technologies, including AC-induction, permanent-magnet-synchronous and interior-permanent-magnet (IPM) types, to ensure improved range, longer battery life and lower operating costs.
