HEALTH-CODE Real operation pem fuel cells HEALTH-state monitoring and diagnosis based on dc-dc COnverter embeddeD Eis

    The project exploits the outcomes of the previous FCH 1 JU funded project D-CODE, during which a proof of concept validated in laboratory (TRL3-4) was developed. HEALTH-CODE will increase the TRL up to level 5. The exploitation of the project outcomes will lead to low-cost and reliable monitoring and diagnostic approaches and related applications (e.g. power electronics). These results will have an impact on stationary FCS with a direct increase in electrical efficiency, availability and durability, leading to a reduction in maintenance and warranty costs, thus increasing the customers’ satisfaction. Therefore, HEALTH-CODE contributes to the enhancement of FC competitiveness towards a wider market deployment.

     

    The main project objectives are:

    • the enhancement of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) based diagnosis;
    • the development of a monitoring and diagnostic tool for state-of-health assessment, fault detection and isolation as well as degradation level analysis for lifetime extrapolation;
    • the reduction of experimental campaign time and costs. Moreover, the improvement of power electronics for FC is also considered.

    These targets will be achieved through the implementation of several methodologies and techniques, well suited for industrial application.
    Several algorithms will be developed relying on on-board EIS measurements of the fuel cell system impedance. Moreover, low-cost diagnostic concepts are also proposed for a straightforward implementation on FCS controllers.

    I-Catapult 2018- Catapult your ideas!

    Catapult your ideas – with this motto, EIFER launched its local innovation challenge 2018. The objective is to capture innovations at an early stage and develop new ideas in a bottom-up process. In addition to identifying innovative and sometimes disruptive solutions, the event also serves to collect ideas for upcoming events such as the Hacking Industry Camp organized by Electricité de Strasbourg and EDF in Alsace or the EDF Pulse Grand Est. I-Catapult was open for all EIFER colleagues for submitting solutions proposals as well problem statements responding to the four strategic axis:
    - Smart and Sustainable City
    - Local Multi-Energy Systems
    - Low Carbon Hydrogen Solutions (H-CODE)
    - Energy Transition, Markets and Environment
    - and the cross-cutting topic of Data Science
    In total 12 proposals were submitted developed by 31 colleagues of EIFER, thus nearly a third of the staff actively participated in the challenge. Participants were supported by the NaWik Institute (National Institute for Scientific Communication) to presented their ideas on the 11th of July in a five minute pitch format. One winning entry was selected by a public vote a second by a jury vote.
    The follow-up by EIFER innovation management is currently under way to identify the next steps for each proposal. The first I-Catapult challenge was certainly a successful event and received a very positive feedback for the presentation training “Communicating Science Effectively” as well as for the event day. New ideas continue to help us drive our research forward! Towards a 2019 edition of the I-Catapult challenge!
