Diagnostics for automotive fuel cell systems

Different diagnostic methods (polarization curves, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, linear sweep voltammetry), which were performed at FESB on an already conditioned 50 cm2 (single) fuel cell provided by ElringKlinger are presented in this deliverable.

Have a closer look here and find out more about the methods and approaches that are examined for Giantleap.

Further diagnostic strategies to ensure the FC System Air Line (FCSAL) State-of-Health (SoH) monitoring were also developed based on data-driven diagnostic techniques. Guidelines for implementation of each strategy in the Giantleap project on data to be recorded on FCEB prototype from Bosch are provided.



Giantleap Workshop @ VPPC2017

We are pleased to invite you to the mid-term workshop of Giantleap that will be held, on December 12th 2017, in Belfort, FRANCE in connection with the Vehicle Power Propulsion Conference (http://www.vppc2017.org/). The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and industrials around topics such as fuel cell degradation mechanisms, prognostics and control related to fuel cell systems for transport applications.

The workshop will follow the following program:

09:00 – 9:50 GEA SA, Switzerland, Cities of tomorrow: what kind of solutions for the first and last mile?

10:20 – 11:00 PSA, France, Next Generation of Electrified Vehicles

11:00 – 11:40 DOE, USA, Hydrogen and fuel cell activities for transportation applications

13:40 – 14:35 Giantleap, I. Halvorsen, R. Petrone, G. Radica, “Diagnostics, Prognostics and Control models for bus fuel cell systems”

14:35 – 15:10 Giantleap, H. Fischer, “Fuel Cell Systems for FCE buses”

15:30 – 15:55 Giantleap, R. Bouwman, “Range Extender for Electrical Citybus”

15:55 – 16:30 NewBusFuel, E. Boyd, “Hydrogen fuel production and dispensation costs for fuel cell bus operators”

16:30 – 17:05 High V.Lo City, V. Willmann, “Towards zero emission public transports with fuel cell electric buses”
