|1. (WO2018029631) HYBRID POWERTRAIN SYSTEM AND METHOD|
|Applicants:||PEGASUS AERONAUTICS CORPORATION
|Title:||HYBRID POWERTRAIN SYSTEM AND METHOD|
A hybrid powertrain system and method includes a prime mover driving a generator/motor to produce an AC power output. The AC power output is applied to a rectifier which is controlled to transform the applied AC power to DC power to supply a DC Power bus at a selected voltage and current. An energy storage device is also connected to the DC power bus and the current flow between the energy storage device and the DC power bus is monitored and compared to preselected values and the results of that comparison are used to alter the operation of the rectifier to increase or decrease, as needed, the current provided to the DC power bus as electrical loads on the DC power bus change.
