Validation of Diagnostics and Control

Two of the final Giantleap public deliverables have been released: validation of the degradation and diagnostic approaches by FESB and of the control system by Bosch Engineering.

FESB’s report found a correlation between accelerated and long-term testing which will be useful to map between the two sets; due to the limited duration of the actual demonstration, no significant degradation could be observed, and data from long-term tests at ElringKlinger were used instead.

The control system of the range extender was built on top of well-known, off-the-shelf hardware; Bosch’ report describes all subsystems and their operational profiles as measured in the demonstration.
