Ishy project activities

VIVES University of applied sciences performs research in the domain of hydrogen technologies. Within the ISHY project VIVES builds a diesel generator set to run on dual fuel mode. Hydrogen will be used as a fuel in the combustion process to reduce the CO2 emissions. Through data logging and data processing the low level management is being adapted to obtain the best results.
The power profiles of the different pilots will be used on the load bank to obtain data to implement in the models to choose the powertrain set up for the pilots.
