PyCAS

Control systems for hydrogen-based technologies

Project description

The objectives of the project are the design and development of a control system for the devices and elements of production, storage and use of hydrogen in a fuel cell. It includes the development of a high-performance contactless temperature sensor, adapted to the explosive atmosphere of the hydrogen system, using infrared technology and equipped with wireless communications. On the other hand, the implementation of an evolutionary software, which governs optimally, flexibly and efficiently the network of transducers (sensors and actuators), as well as the communications network of the hydrogen system.
