Ground-breaking technology
Komatsu Hybrid Technology
Ground-breaking technology
The electric swing motor/generator captures and regenerates energy as the upper structure slows down and converts it into electric energy. The captured energy is stored in the ultra-capacitor and used by the generator/motor to assist the engine when it needs to accelerate.

Ultra-capacitor Assembly

Komatsu Hybrid Technology
Ultra-capacitor Assembly
The ultra-capacitor assembly includes an inverter that switches the AC electricity from the generator motor and swing motor into DC electricity for storage in the capacitor. Since capacitors require migration of electrons and ions for charging and discharging, they can transfer power much faster than batteries, which use chemical reactions to produce electricity
