The market product approach: cost-efficient, standardized BOP components for PEM fuel cell systems

Dr. Michael Harenbrock, Principal Expert Electric Mobility, MANN+HUMMEL | LinkedIn

PEM fuel cell systems require significant cost reduction for wide-spread market penetration.

In this free webinar, Dr. Michael Harenbrock of MANN+HUMMEL demonstrates a market product approach for BoP components in the cathode air path and cooling loop. In this approach, functional core elements are tailored for the operating requirements in defined power classes, with flexibility in connection and fixation.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Defining power classes leads to a specific set of operating conditions as a basis for product standardization
  • Examples are products for the cathode air path, e.g. air filters, water separators, and silencers, and in the cooling loop, e.g. ion exchange filters and coolant particle filters
  • This approach reduces project-specific tooling cost and development time
  • The products can be ordered off-the-shelf for fast supply and testing
