The Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Battery is much Smaller than the Ones Used in Battery Electric Vehicles
Hydrogen fuel cell cars are electric vehicles that generate electricity by converting hydrogen gas into electrical energy through a chemical reaction within a device called a fuel cell.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles represent a promising alternative to traditional combustion engine vehicles and battery electric vehicles, as they combine the best of both worlds: long driving range and quick refueling. The hydrogen vehicles refueled in just a few minutes, similar to conventional vehicles, unlike electric vehicles that need hours to charge, while producing zero harmful emissions.
The combustion of 1 kilogram of H2 releases approximately three times more energy than the same mass of petroleum fuel, with efficiencies ranging from 40-60%. This is significantly higher than the efficiency of internal combustion engines, which usually operate at around 25-30% efficiency.
The Selection of Appropriate Materials for the Design of Safe Hydrogen Systems is Critical & Additional Education, Formation & Training Becomes Key!
Hydrogen systems must undergo strict safety procedures and a comprehensive series of tests to verify their resistance to extreme temperatures, chemicals, falls, shocks, and even ballistics testing to assess their resistance to ultra-powerful impacts.
Hydrogen vehicle tanks are designed to avoid gas leaks and reduce the risk of ignition in the event of an accident.
Fully controlled system Vehicles are embedded with strategically placed sensors to check for leaks in the system and a circuit breaker to cut off the gas flow if a leak is detected, allowing for the safe evacuation of hydrogen out of the vehicle and thus avoiding overpressure in the tank.
