Giantleap Workshop: follow-up…

Giantleap’s workshop took place on December 12th in Belfort, France as an invited session of the IEEE VPPC 2017 conference.

The aim of the workshop was 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.

Giantleap’s Workshop Presentations are now on-line:

GIANTLEAP -“Diagnostics of PEMFC Degradation“, FESB, Gojmir Radica

GIANTLEAP -“Model-based approach for Prognostic in Public Transport Systems“, UFC, Raffaele Petrone

GIANTLEAP -“Diagnostics, Prognostics and Control Models for Bus Fuel Cell Systems“, SINTEF, Ivar Halvorsen

GIANTLEAP -“Fuel Cell Systems for FCE buses“, Bosch Enegineering, Harald Fischer

GIANTLEAP – “Range Extender for Electrical Citybus“, VDL, Ruud Bouwman

High V.Lo City – “Towards zero emission public transports with fuel cell electric buses“, Valentine Willmann

NewBusFuel, “Hydrogen fuel production and dispensation costs for fuel cell bus operators“, Edward Boyd

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.
