Low-Carbon Fuels and Propulsion
This presentation explores the benefits and areas for enhancement for each powertrain from a technical and economic perspective. System-level analysis is used to model a hydrogen internal combustion engine and generate operating maps for efficiency. A similar approach is pursued for the predictive description of fuel cell operation. Both powertrains are finally added to a vehicle model, enabling driving cycle assessment under different traffic conditions.
