Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles: A Greener Road Ahead - Part 2

26 June 2024, 10:00 am

This week we talk about integrating batteries to increase performance and range, and give you an insight into Equitus's capabilities.

Integrating Batteries to Enhance Performance and Efficiency

While hydrogen fuel cells provide numerous benefits, integrating batteries into HFCVs can further enhance their performance and efficiency. This hybrid approach combines the strengths of both technologies, leading to several key advantages:

  1. Improved Acceleration and Power Delivery

Batteries can provide additional power during high-demand situations, such as acceleration and climbing steep inclines. This supplementary power improves the overall driving experience by delivering smooth and responsive performance.

  1. Energy Recapture Through Regenerative Braking

Integrating batteries allows for regenerative braking, a process that recaptures kinetic energy during braking and stores it in the battery. This recaptured energy can be used to power the vehicle, increasing overall efficiency and reducing hydrogen consumption.

  1. Optimized Fuel Cell Operation

By using batteries to handle peak power demands, the fuel cell can operate at a more constant and optimal load. This reduces wear and tear on the fuel cell, extends its lifespan, and enhances overall efficiency.

  1. Enhanced Range and Flexibility

A hybrid system with both a fuel cell and battery can offer extended driving ranges and greater operational flexibility. Drivers can rely on the battery for short trips and urban driving, while the fuel cell provides energy for longer journeys, reducing the need for frequent refueling.
