Arés series is PEMFC testing station designed to meet power range from 30 kW to 100 kW. It is suitable for testing of fuel cell stack at defined working condition.
Custom designed lines are provided. Anode and cathode lines are humidified by advanced system. Provided with multivoltage monitor, multitemperature monitor for fuel cell stack analyses, cooling system 30 – 100 kW / 95°C , EL load and/or potentiostat.
Fully automated and unattended operation
All functions of testing station are controlled by computer and it is ready for remote control: especially all valves, heaters, mass flow control, pressure control, humidity control. System is fully automated enables unattended operation.
System contains safety procedures as nitrogen purge and emergency shut down. Working range as voltage and current of the cell, all temperature sensors are compared with safety limits that can be set. There are two levels of limits. Hydrogen leak sensor is installed.
