OPTIMIZING AND INTEGRATING ELECTROMECHANICAL ACTUATORS IN AGRICULTURAL EXCAVATOR BOOMS FOR ENHANCED EFFICIENCY AND BATTERY LONGEVITY
OPTIMIZAREA ȘI INTEGRAREA ACTUATORILOR ELECTROMECANICI ÎN BRAȚELE EXCAVATOARELOR AGRICOLE PENTRU EFICIENȚĂ ÎMBUNĂTĂȚITĂ ȘI LONGEVITATE A ACUMULATORILOR
The research optimizes electric consumption in agricultural excavator booms by integrating electromechanical actuators and Power-by-Wire technologies. Utilizing a PID controller reduces electric motor peak current consumption, enhancing battery longevity. The research, carried out on a reduced-scale experimental stand, reveals the potential applications of the excavator arm equipment in agriculture, such as the precise location of irrigation systems, arrangement of terraces for orchards or vineyards, setting up greenhouses, and efficient unloading/loading of bulk materials. These applications signify the versatility and adaptability of electrically powered excavators in addressing diverse agricultural needs, emphasizing the significance of the developed mechatronic system for enhancing efficiency and sustainability in agricultural practices.
