YTO GROUP CORPORATION And General Electric Company Cooperative Research And Development In Electric Tractor
YTO GROUP CORPORATION And General Electric Company have signed the cooperative agreement of electric tractor in this month. YTO GROUP CORPORATION And General Electric Company will cooperate with each other to achieve breakthrough in the key technology of electric tractor.
In last May, YTO GROUP CORPORATION And General Electric Company begun the first technical exchange, discussed the cooperation in electric tractor. In 2012, both sides established their own electric tractor project team, the two sides communicated on technology several times, discussed their respective advantages to develop cooperatiion, namely make use of YTO GROUP CORPORATION advantages in manufacturing tractor and General Electric Company providing technical support in electrical (motor, electronic control, battery, etc.) system integration and system optimization, electric tractor system simulation, control strategy, to co-build electric tractor prototype.
YTO GROUP CORPORATION electric tractor project team aims to develop high efficacy, zero pollution, zero emission electric tractor, make full use of wind power, hydropower, solar, thermal or nuclear energy and other secondary energy, reduce atmospheric pollution in agricultural production, and reduce the dependence on national strategic material oil resource. After project finished, the electric tractor of YTO GROUP CORPORATION will be widely used in garden maintenance, lawn and light load agricultural operation field, as well as environmental pollution requirement occasion, alternative to traditional internal combustion engine tractor.
In recent years, due to oil shortage and environmental pollution seriously, pure electric or hybrid new energy vehicle is growing fastly in worldwide. Experts say, the traditional internal combustion engine type tractor, in the process of transforming chemical energy into mechanical energy, a lot of thermal energy and acoustic energy lose, 20% energy will be sucessfully transformed in the final, while the energy use efficiency of electric tractor will increase 1.5 to 2 times. It’s predicted that the comprehensive utilization cost of electric tractor will be about 30% of that of traditional internal combustion engine type tractor.
For China agricultural machinery industry, YTO GROUP CORPORATION leads to develop the enviromentally friendly tractor to meet the national new energy policy, guiding the technical development of tractor industry, improving the technical level of tractor industry in energy saving and emission, has far-reaching strategic significance.
