Development and Validation of a High-Power-Fuel-Cell-Drive-Train for Hybrid-EMU-Railways

The project aims at developing a modular hybrid traction systems for trains with fuel-cells and a high-power batteries. Therefore the partners Siemens AG, Ballard Power Systems und RWTH Aachen University create a deep understanding of the components and their interaction. This goal is reached by developing a hardware- in-the-loop (HIL) test-bench at RWTH Aachen University.
