Flexible testing solutions for fuel cell powertrain development
Latest trends in propulsion technologies are leading to changing requirements for powertrain development. Especially electrification and alternative fuels – such as hydrogen – are strongly pushing the investment for new test beds in this field as well as the modernization of existing laboratories for new applications. HORIBA can offer flexible testing solutions for the validation of all propulsion components (fuel cell, e-motor and battery) up to the complete fuel cell powertrain. Fuel cell powertrain test environments are powerful toolboxes for the energy management optimization that can help improving the efficiency and driving range of FCEVs.
