More Powerful Fuel Cell Tested on Airliner Electric-Taxi System
Airbus is looking to carry out flight tests of a fuel cell four times more powerful than a previous demonstrator and capable of running multiple systems, including electric-taxi drives.
The latest cell would deliver about 100kW to the aircraft, compared with the 25kW from a pallet-mounted system tested in 2008.
Airbus says the device, developed with German aerospace research centre DLR and Parker Aerospace, will feature a liquid hydrogen tank, heat exchangers and fans in the tail cone, while the fuel cell is fitted in the cargo hold.
