A desire for more efficient onboard power systems is resulting in a greater demand for hybrid systems with power assist functionality, reports Fischer Panda UK.

The company is seeing a shift in the market towards its hybrid systems consisting of a generator plus smart Mastervolt inverter charger system.

Chris Fower, sales and marketing director at Fischer Panda UK said the company was seeing a definite trend towards efficiency. "To meet this demand, we are being asked to supply and install smaller generators, along with a Mastervolt Mass Combi Ultra Inverter Charger, for example," he said.

Smaller generators

“With a new understanding about the difference between consumption or continuous load and short bursts of peak load, we are now able to spec a 5kW to 8kW generator with a smart inverter charger instead of a 10kW generator."

And he explained that this provides the power assist feature enabling the system to use stored energy from the battery bank to cover peak times.

"Effectively, 90% of the time, a smaller generator is adequate, using a smart inverter charging system to get over the peak," said Chris.

“With our full system capabilities, we are able to design the wiring and onboard set-up so the priority load is always powered."

Through its customised systems, Fischer Panda UK supplies CZone, Mastervolt power systems and Dometic climate packages.
