Abstract
The electrification of power propulsion systems entrances in agricultural machinery. Besides the advantages of speed variability and energy efficiency, the agricultural process can be improved with the integration of sensors.
In this project, the potential benefits of speed variable power propulsion systems for farmers are analysed. For example in the area of grassland mechanisation, the contribution of speed variable power propulsion system to increase the forage qualität in mowing, tedding, swathing and loading are described. A questioning of farmes should illustrate the expectations and benefits.
