Fuel Cell Vehicle System Components

The objective of the project is the research on of low-cost components for fuel cell (FC-) systems and electric drive systems which can be used in future hybridised FC-vehicles (medium term objective) and ICE vehicles.

These Sub-Projects are directed to three different areas of research:

Research on Standardisation and Requirements:
In the sub-project 2000, all research which is aiming at requirements and standardisation, identification of common components and modular design, interfaces, simulation, Safety Aspects, identification of synergies with ICE-Hybrid and comparison of e-storage technologies is comprised.
This subb-project has a strong link with the other sub-projects where the detailed component and system specifications are elaborated.

Research on System Components:
Aimed at the development of innovative system components such as air supply, humidification, H2- sensors, hydrogen supply line, e-motors and batteris. This is the main focus of the project HySYS. Based on input and exchange with SP2000, the detailed system specifications are elaborated in these research activities.

Research on System level:
All system related research and the work to integrate the improved components in a base fuel cell system and the validator vehicles is done in the SP5000. Energy management and system control strategies and necessary software work is also done in SP5000. AS with the system components, the detailed FC-system-specifications and vehicle specification are elaborated in this SP
as well.
