Vehicle Power Management Applications

Power Management is the intelligent use of available power in a contained power system. On-board vehicle power management application (PMA) is the system level software that performs power management for vehicle applications.


Power Management Applications reduce fuel consumption, extend mission time, and reduce costs of maintenance and repair through:

  • Power Optimization of Electrical Loads or Subsystems
  • Load Prioritization / Reduction / Shedding / Reconstitution
  • Identification of Degrading Loads Based on Power Usage or Other Parameters
