ADVANCED GENERATOR REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGY
Integrel is the future of power generation afloat, completely replacing your stand alone generator by using “spare” capacity from your existing inboard engine.
Integrel uses smart new technology to generate up to 9kW of electrical power without compromising your engine’s performance. In fact, the system actively manages its output so that the engine is always running at its most fuel efficient.
By using your engine for both propulsion and power generation, both tasks are delivered at optimum efficiency, resulting in fuel savings of up to 25%. One engine, two jobs, less fuel.
Integrel is completely automatic, working in the background with no direct input from you. It requires no maintenance other than a periodic belt change, offering substantial savings on fuel and maintenance costs across its lifetime.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your existing inboard engine has a significant amount of spare capacity most of the time. Integrel uses this spare capacity to generate electrical energy either for immediate consumption or to charge the battery banks. As that spare capacity increases and decreases with engine revs, Integrel adjusts its power generation accordingly.
Effectively, the Integrel generator is like an alternator on steroids. Permanent magnets embedded in the rotor improve the internal magnetic coupling, delivering exceptionally high power and efficiency.
But such high power needs to be handled carefully. Our system controller is programmed with information about the propeller and engine, plus the main elements of the boat’s electrical system. This allows the controller to calculate in real time exactly how much additional load can be added to bring the engine to its most efficient point at any given engine speed.
Propulsion is always prioritised and the electrical power is ramped up slowly to avoid any shock loading on the engine.
