Independent research organisation SINTEF’s Virtual-FCS project has announced the official launch of its open-source platform for hybrid fuel cell and battery systems simulation.
In creating this simulation platform, companies will be able to create hybrid fuel cell and battery systems quicker, cheaper and easier by selecting different parameters to create their own unique variants.
It allows any system integrator, with limited fuel cell experience, to rapidly design and optimise a fuel cell battery hybrid powertrain for varied applications including heavy and light-duty vehicles, maritime and rail applications.
Perhaps the most significant factor of this groundbreaking simulation platform is that it will be free for all interested parties, meaning that utilisation of these systems could become much more common.
