This webinar will cover different possibilities to upgrade your conventional engine test cell to be fit for alternative propulsion systems.
Fuel cell-powered vehicles, alongside hybrid and electric powertrains, are increasingly capturing attention and are anticipated to claim a substantial portion of the market share as potential replacements for traditional thermal engines. This shift is expected to result in a wide array of powertrain configurations in the future, given that batteries, electric axles, fuel cells, and combustion engines can be integrated in various sizes and dimensions. The implementation of national hydrogen strategies aimed at expediting decarbonization and climate goals across different governments globally stands as a primary catalyst for this trend.
While battery electric drive systems are projected to dominate future vehicles, numerous engine manufacturers have already introduced both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles equipped with fuel cells for electric propulsion. Consequently, as the demand for cleaner transportation alternatives continues to escalate, H2 powertrains are poised to emerge as a significant focal point in the years ahead due to their ability to offer extensive autonomy ranges with short refueling times.
In this context, Horiba offers expertise in implementing projects worldwide for environmentally friendly powertrains, encompassing an expanding range of light and heavy fuel cell-powered vehicles. Spanning from validating individual components to entire vehicle systems, enabling clients to navigate the early stages of development through simulations, thereby reducing validation expenses and expediting time-to-market. Leveraging extensive proficiency in both H2 and conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) test cells, we serve as the ideal partner to deliver optimal solutions for efficient, secure, and adaptable H2 powertrain testing.
