Development of an Electric Air Compressor for Fuel Cell Systems

The project focuses on the development and testing of fuel cell system electrical air compressor (EAC) for use in vehicles. The EAC is to be further refined in terms of size, cost, efficiency and performance, thus contributing to the overall cost reduction of a fuel cell system for mobile applications by serving as a basis for series development.
