Researchers developing light EV with direct methanol fuel cell range extender

Researchers developing light EV with direct methanol fuel cell range extender 26 May 2014 Researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich and the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences (Jülich Campus) are building and testing a light transport electric vehicle using a direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) as a range extender. The team presented the SILENT-F vehicle for the first time on the Forschungszentrum campus earlier this month. By the end of the project, which began in 2013, a demonstration vehicle equipped with a DMFC hybrid system will be ready for application-oriented tests. The SILENT-F project is based on a commercially available vehicle for in-house transport or municipal use. SILENT-F. Project leader Nicola Kimiaie and Herbert Feilbach (front). The fuel cell is already mounted on the vehicle. A plastic cover serves temporarily as protection from the rain. Source: Fors...
