From Challenges to Solutions: Leading PEM Fuel Cell Innovation Through Simulation
AVL SIMpuls Fuel Cell

SIMpulse stands for innovative insight into the ever-evolving landscape of simulation technology. Experience a dynamic showcase spotlighting the diverse facets of simulation applications, from automotive design to energy optimization and beyond.

We are opening this online event series with a deep-dive into the field of PEM Fuel Cell development
PEM fuel cells are a clean energy source that can contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions. They hold the potential for decarbonization of various sectors like transportation or stationary power generation. With their high energy efficiency – converting fuel into electricity with minimal wasted energy – they are a promising technology. 

Though there is great demand for green transportation, the PEM Fuel Cell technology is still at an early stage of market introduction. Current research and development efforts are aimed at enhancing the efficiency and longevity of PEM fuel cells. Also, BoP system components sizing and controls related tasks are of high relevance in this context. These and other challenges can be mastered in a cost-effective way through the use of high-fidelity simulation.

Join thought-provoking presentations and use the chance to get answers to your questions directly from the experts. Four 20-minute sessions will introduce you to the most recent developments in the field. Gain new impulses, ideas and solutions to get ahead in the race to high performance fuel cells. 

Reserve your free spot today and be part of this experience.
