Power Architecture

1 Modular
Modular system are characterized by functional partitioning into discrete scalable, reusable modules, rigorous use of well-defined modular interfaces and making use of industry standards for these interfaces.

2 Direct Flow
Direct flow and direct injection takes care of an efficient use of input energy and its transformation into rotary movement.
It enables direct start/stop, avoids intermediate holding area's and enables the control to be on the primary input side.

3 Plug & Play
A "plug and play" device or component, is one with a specification that facilitates the discovery of an other component in a system without the need for physical device configuration or user intervention in resolving resource conflicts.

4  Repetiton & Flexibility
Repeated use of the same standardized modules both on machine as well as configuration complex basis, allows for flexible capacity and internal back-up as opposed to extreme efficient large scale but stationary generation units.

5  Integrated
The bringing together of component subsystems into one system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system. For the machine level as well as arrayed complex configurations this also involves the framing/housing as integrated component.

6  Weight & Volume
Low weight and volume per kWh are essential for production of standardized components. Allowing for flexibility both on physical installation (capacity) as well as logical (system control & operating) level. Transportability; ease of maintenance & replacement; flexibility in capacity and low cost are the key words.
