Fuel Cell Systems
E-Sling H2 Project
E-Sling is a ETH Fokus-Project giving students the chance for applied field experience. The aim is to develop new airplane drives and integrate them into a Sling TSi four-seat single engine aircraft. The project investigates two concepts of electric drives powered either by a hydrogen fuel cell system or by batteries (airplane as shown in image).
Within the frame of an academic partnership the first prototype of the hydrogen fuel cell system was successfully tested on the fuel cell test facility of PSI’s ESI Platform. The next steps in the project are building up its test facility and further optimization of the fuel cell system.
Autostack-CORE is a European JTI-FCH joint project developing PE fuel cell stack technology for the automotive industry. The objectives of this project are to meet the target costs while maintaining high energy density and performance. A consortium of 14 partners from industry and research was involved, with PSI being responsible for characterization performance and durability tests of short-stacks.
