Electrification of Agricultural Machinery From the Perspective of an Implement Manufacturer 2017-01-1935

In this paper, we present our views on the electrification of agricultural machinery, especially electrification with voltages higher than 12 volts - even up to 700 volts.
Requirements on modern agricultural machinery have changed drastically in recent decades. Electronic controls became standard - resulting in increased electrical power requirements. At Agritechnica 2007, John Deere and Rauch presented a tractor-implement combination using 400V AC, which prompted avid further development of this technology in agriculture.
We will present our experiences with the electrification of some implements. For each development, we had a different focus and the results will be discussed.
Furthermore, we will provide a short overview of possible efficiency improvements thanks to electrification and an analysis of the demands.
A conclusion with an outlook on the real requirements and upcoming solutions from our perspective will complete this paper.
