The fuel cell system testbed plays a
vital role in this. Its significance for
FCEV development can be compared
to the engine testbed for the
development of conventional vehicles.
AVL’s fuel cell system testbed
solution supports the full spectrum
of features to efficiently execute
functional development, integration,
calibration, performance, fuel
consumption, reliability, durability,
health and diagnosis, H2 emission,
HV and H2 safety, environmental,
NVH, EMC testing and many more.
AVL has been developing simulation
tools for automotive testing
since the mid-1980s, and the company
is leading the way in using this
method to speed the development
of fuel cell technology and prove
its viability. For more than a decade
AVL has been creating simulation
tools to support the development
and optimization of both PEMFC
and SOFC systems and their related
components. By collaborating with
OEMs and vehicle manufacturers,
this approach has enabled AVL to
model and test different uses of fuel
cell technology at all stages of engineering
projects, from concept right
through to system validation. This
has resulted in a range of challenging
performance and durability targets
being met, while effectively managing
cost, complexity and time.
With its flexible, modular test systems,
AVL is able to model and test
different uses of fuel cell technology,
from concept right through
to system validation.
AVL IS SPEARHEADING THIS ELECTRICAL REVOLUTION.
AND THAT MEANS EVERYTHING FROM GENERATORS
THAT PROVIDE JUST A FEW KILOWATTS RIGHT UP TO
LARGE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER PLANTS.
