Company Interests:
DLR is Germany's national research center for aeronautics and space. Its extensive research and development work is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. Approximately 5.100 people are employed in DLR's 27 institutes and facilities at eight locations in Germany. The Institute of Vehicle Concepts of DLR in Stuttgart covers the research topics alternative power trains and energy conversion in vehicle technology, light weight / hybrid construction in vehicle technology, Innovative vehicle concepts and modular systems. The Institute acts as a system institute being a link between specialized DLR Institutes, industrial partners and partners from science with the goal of supplying contributions to environmentally friendly vehicle technologies.
 
News at HANNOVER MESSE 2007:
In the field of alternative power trains the Institute works mainly on advanced hybrid power trains and fuel cell powered vehicles. The Institute operates test benches for propulsion systems (e.g. 4-wheel roller test bench, H2-capable and climate-controlled and a fuel cell power train test benches), test benches for electrical energy storages and electrical engines.
An important project has been the HyLite project, coordinated by the Institute of Vehicle Concepts. Within the HyLite project 10 companies from the suppliers industry demonstrated innovative technologies for the fuel supply sub system, the air supply sub system, the heat and water management and the control sub system of a PEFC system. The HyLite-vehicle is on display on the booth. System development and integration is supported by modelling activities from vehicle/system to component level. DLR uses for the system simulation conventional simulation tools like Matlab/Simulink, but also the object-oriented simulation language Modelica. The modelling and simulation know-how is also an important base for the development of control strategies, whereby rapid control prototyping systems like dSpace and xPCTarget are applied. Thus, the Institute of Vehicle Concepts can support you in the whole process realizing fuel cell systems for mobile application from concept to prototype assembly, which can be also underlined by several successful development projects ranging from fuel cell scooters to mid-size busses, whereby component development is supported by testing equipment and an industrial network.

Forum Presentation:
Speaker:

Dr.-Ing. Peter Treffinger, Head of Alternative Powertrain

Topic:
Applied Research on Fuel Cell Powertrains at the Institute of Vehicle Concepts. Advanced components, development tools and test benches

Date:
Monday, April 16, 12:40

   

Institute of Vehicle Concepts performs applied research on fuel cell power trains covering application from scooters to railcars. Within the presentation the development is outlined by means of practical examples, namely the project HyLite, which is also on display on the booth. The available development tools, test benches (4-wheel roller test bench) and software tools are described. Special emphasis is given on ideas to increase fuel economy e.g. by applying load following, low-pressure fuel cell systems in combination with electrical energy storages. An outlook on advanced power trains, e.g, PEFC-systems working at operation temperatures around 120 °C in combination with solid state hydrogen storages is given. In this respect are also modular vehicle concepts, which suit to different power trains discussed.
