The EnerDel MHPS delivers significant fuel savings over generator supplied loads in this U.S. Army Engineer Research & Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) project.

The MHPS uses an onboard battery energy storage system (BESS) as the normal source to the load. It more quickly and efficiently adjusts to load fluctuations than traditional engine driven generators. The BESS reduces generator size and runtime, dramatically reduces fuel consumption and fueling operations, and, extends system maintenance intervals. The MHPS can be configured to connect renewable energy inputs to further extend Silent Watch Mode and provide even greater reductions in fuel consumption. When connected to renewable energy sources (optional), the MHPS store excess energy and then makes it available on demand as conditions warrant.
