Research Projects

Development of centrifugal compressors for the cathode air supply system of fuel cells

Centrifugal compressors are used to compress ambient air for the cathode air supply of fuel cells, since fuel cell stacks can be operated more efficient at higher system pressures. The operating range of the entire fuel cell system is limited by the limited operating range of the centrifugal compressors. The aim of current research is to develop centrifugal compressors for fuel cell applications that achieve safe operation without surge. For this purpose, centrifugal compressor systems are equipped with map-extending features (e.g. adjustable diffuser vanes). In addition, an early surge detection system can be used.
