Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System



The Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System provides a realistic representation of the basic functions of a 50 W hydrogen fuel cell system. It is ideal for teaching the basic engineering principles of fuel cell systems. Realistic, extensive experimenting capabilities and optimized instructional materials make this a comprehensive instruction package. Through practical experiments, students acquire a sound competence in working with fuel cell systems.

The modular design of the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System enables flexibility in setup complexity – from simple experiments for teaching basic principles to complex experiments for experienced students. The components and curriculum of the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System are offered through a partnership with Heliocentris, the world’s leading authority on fuel cells used in education. The system is suitable for hands-on learning in diverse fields of study and occupations, such as:

- Electrical engineering

- Energy engineering

- Process engineering

- Mechanical engineering

- Automotive engineering

The Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System includes numerous prepared experiments, enabling students to examine the design and functions of a real fuel cell system. It is developed especially for educational purposes, the system being designed for maximum safety and ease of use, even by inexperienced users. With this training system, students explore the engineering principles of a hydrogen fuel cell system, as well as advanced general principles related to the system, including:

- Structure and functioning principles

- Thermodynamics

- Characteristic curves and efficiency ratings

- Power electronics

The Hydrogen Fuel Cell Training System is part of the Electric Power Technology Training Systems, Series 8010. Each training system in Series 8010 is based on the Electric Power Technology Training Program and provides a turn-key solution dealing with some aspects of the wide field of electrical energy. The exhaustive courseware provided with each training system covers all the theory required to perform the laboratory exercises, while review questions and unit tests allow students to test the knowledge they have gained.

The Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly modular in both courseware and hardware. Because of this, courses and equipment from the program are available as required, either individually or in the context of a specific training system. The program covers several different subjects in the field of electrical energy, such as rotating machines, electrical power transmission, power electronics, home energy production from renewable resources (wind and sunlight), large-scale electricity production from hydropower and wind power, smart-grid technologies (SVC, STATCOM, HVDC transmission, etc.), storage of electrical energy in batteries, and drive systems for small electric vehicles and cars.
