This work is devoted to scientific research carried out on the basis of the T-16 tractor self-propelled chassis, according to the developed new kinematic scheme, not previously used in the Russian tractor industry. The proposed new kinematic scheme includes an electric drive with frequency control with a power of 11kW, powered by a battery with a nominal voltage of 480V, a standard six-speed manual transmission, a parallel power supply source, which is a gas turbine power generator designed to charge batteries in the field, move the tractor and power the external loads with standard voltage. The proposed kinematic scheme is more reliable in terms of technical operation, provides more comfortable working conditions for machine operators, improves the local environmental situation, and ensures the economic efficiency of technological cycles. The paper provides a description of the proposed kinematic diagram of the tractor, the technical characteristics of units, assemblies and their work schedules. The technical characteristics of the torque of the electric motor, which was replaced by a diesel engine, are presented. The positive aspects of the tractor on electric traction are shown, its design is presented.
