The new innovative Fischer Panda HybridDriveSystem comprises a 3rd Generation of Diesel-Electric Drive Systems with fully integrated onboard power system. Central to this is the new Fischer Panda C3Cockpit, which provides the skipper with everything needed to control and manage onboard power requirements.
The motor control unit also contains an integrated battery charger/inverter for supplying onboard power - additional battery/inverter setup is no longer required. The controller and converter unit can be supplied with a typical voltages within 24V DC - 600V DC range. The systems degree of efficiency can allow savings by up to 20%. By supplying DC from the battery bank and/or the generator and in cases through the use of 2 motors helps significantly improved the safety of the ship and its crew. One unit has been designed to be suited for installation on all systems to reduce the cost factor.
Command, Control and Communication are the key elements behind the new C3Cockpit. All components are connected via a bus system so they communicate sending and receive signals for further processing. The status, parameters and values of all connected components such as drive system, controllers, generator, onboard power devices and batteries are displayed giving the skipper full control. The skipper has full command–he can change parameters and switch devices.
The active battery and generator management system is integrated. Operating data of components connected to the bus system can be accessed and displayed. Remote communication, maintenance and updates are available via a GSM or Ethernet. The system is NMEA 2000 and CAN-bus capable. Diagnostic data can be stored on SD-cards.
The Fischer Panda C3Cockpit is designed as a modular system and can be installed as a standard onboard power system (even without a Drive System ), too. It is possible to install a decentralized wiring system with a central location for analysis all data relevant to onboard power, energy and drive systems.
