Functional Test on the Fuel Cell-electric Drive

New application example

Read in our new application example how the interaction of the fuel cell stack with the media supply and other components in the powertrain is tested.

The fuel cell stack combines numerous fuel cells in which energy from the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen is converted into electrical energy.

The functional tests cover all operating functions such as cooling circuit, cooling control, heating, hydrogen paths (anode path), air paths (cathode path), high-voltage electrical paths, sensor technology and fuel cell control unit. High-precision measurement of a wide range of physical parameters is required for functional testing and validation of the fuel cell drive system. With various conventional and HV-safe measurement modules, the necessary measurement data can be easily acquired.
