We are conducting research to combine fuel cell power generation and IoT technology.
IoT sensors have many advantages when monitoring fuel cells and vehicle, and by adding cell balancing technology to them, we can improve fuel cell lifetime and performance. We can expect more reliable fuelcell power module in connection with our cell monitoring technology
The IoT fuelcell system consists of several fuelcell hardware , IoT Box , communication channel (such as LAN, Satellite, Wifi) , cloud server and monitoring device.
Then properties of fuel cell is monitored and controlled at the cell level using the cloud platform by monitoring front end device.
So it can precisely monitor the condition of the fuelcell and pro-actively prevent fault of fuelcell.
The benefits of fuel cell technology coupled with IoT not only increase performance, reliability and safety but also enable various business opportunities.
By analyzing big data coupled with AI technology to reduce maintenance cost of business and predict failure of power module system.
Another merit is that this distributed fuelcell power resource can reduce plane weight of long cable and electric wire to save Jet fuel.
