The heart of the system

ABB Onboard Microgrid is built around the OMD880LC multi-drive unit, designed for marine power generation and propulsion drive applications. The drive houses up to five converter modules and one AC module for AC network supply, all connected to an internal DC bus, so each power source and consumer can be controlled and optimized independently.
