In the CoacHyfied research project, fuel cell systems for use in long-distance coaches are to be developed and tested together with 15 project partners. To this end, two solutions are being developed in CoacHyfied to overcome challenges such as the small installation space or the low recuperation potential. Furthermore, in this particular use case, numerous auxiliary consumers such as cabin air conditioning must also be taken into account. The coaches will be used and tested in two different regions for a period of 2-3 years.

The Chair of Thermodynamics of Mobile Energy Conversion Systems (TME) is developing a predictive maintenance scheduling concept based on generic state indicators for different components of the fuel cell system developed within the research project. With the help of the maintenance scheduler the lifeteime of the fuel cell system is to be increased.
