FUEL CELL SYSTEM DESIGN AND INTEGRATION
Hypermotive have a strong capability in the development and integration of fuel cell systems for motive and stationary power applications. Our engineering team has a broad knowledge and capability to provide engineering solutions which include air cooled or liquid cooled systems ranging from 1kW to >100kW.
Our keys areas of integration capability centre around electrical, mechanical and controls development to provide integration of a fuel cell system. Vehicle power-train simulation capability is used to determine the output power of the fuel cell system and the size of the hydrogen storage system. We have experience of retrofit systems to base EVs as range extenders (REEV) as well as prime-mover whole vehicle developments (FCV).
Our team has experience of developing fuel cell systems for special applications where volume, mass and performance have been limiting factors in the design and no available off-the-shelf fuel cell system could satisfy the requirements. We are familiar with working closely with cell / stack developers to achieve a design solution which satisfies the operational requirements of the cell / stack while also meeting the vehicle performance and packaging requirements.
Few automotive integration companies possess the capability and experience of fuel cells that is held within Hypermotive. Our ability to work independently of fuel cell technology, system supplier and target vehicle, whilst concentrating on the drive performance and vehicle packaging is almost unique in the industry.
