The HyDrive – Electric Vehicle Trainer is an entry-level learning system, designed for secondary and vocational schools as well as university students and educators. The modular training system allows users to understand the fundamental principles of hydrogen technology in hybrid Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles.
The loads are optimally designed for DC-applications like Fuel Cells, Batteries or Photovoltaic modules. The included interface allows the communication to the PC and the Loads are suitable both in 19” Systems as well as laboratory or table devices.
The Nexa® Integration System is ideal for demanding application projects. With its 1.2 kW fuel cell module, matching DC/DC converter and software for overall system control, training and research projects can be easily implemented. Heliocentris offers several accessories to adapt the system to different applications.
The Fuel Cell Trainer is ideal for teaching the basic engineering principles of PEM fuel cell systems. Extensive experimenting capabilities and comprehensive and revised instruction material with predefined experiments make it a complete instruction package.
The Clean Energy Trainer examines renewable energy generation through solar and wind and introduces students to the methodology of efficient energy conversion, storage and supply by means of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Students gain a sound understanding of the complete energy conversion chain, the practical application and principles behind the technologies.
The Solar Hydrogen Trainer is a 400 Wp off-grid photovoltaic system combined with an electrolyzer. It produces hydrogen from clean solar power and can be combined with the Fuel Cell Trainer or Nexa® Training System to a microlab.
