The Motor Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K) is connected to the engine’s crankshaft. Under braking, the MGU-K operates as a generator, recovering some of the kinetic energy dissipated during braking and stores it in the battery.
The electrical energy converted from the exhaust gases can be either directed to the Motor Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K), or to the battery. The Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H) is also used to control the speed of the turbocharger to match the air requirement of the engine - to slow it down...
Under acceleration, the Motor Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K) is powered from the battery and/or from the Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H) and acts as a motor to propel the car, for a 160 hp power boost.
The Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H) is connected to the engine’s turbocharger. Acting as a generator, it absorbs power from the turbine shaft to convert heat energy from the exhaust gases. The electrical energy is stored in the battery via an inverter.
