2008-06-01 - Fuel Cell A320 DLRDLR shows fuel cell in A320

Brenstoffzellenforschung beim DLR<br /> Airbus presents for the first time its fuel cell activities onboard an A320 research aircraft at this year's International Berlin Airshow (ILA).

Fuel cells are one of the most promising "step change" technologies and Airbus sees high potential in fuel cell applications towards a further significant reduction of emissions, fuel consumption and external noise. The research is part of Airbus' efforts towards eco-efficiency. Before taking course to Berlin, the A320 Fuel Cell Demonstrator aircraft successfully performed another fuel cell test. During the flight over a dedicated test area in France, a further improved fuel cell system provided power for the aircraft's electric motor pump, which is connected to the blue hydraulic circle and successfully moved the aircraft's ailerons, rudder and other flight control systems.
The test flight was part of Airbus' ongoing research activities to evaluate the potential use and environmental benefits of fuel cell technology. The improved fuel cell system is more robust and delivers a higher peak performance (more than 20 Kilo Watts of electrical power) to cover higher loads. It also is able to deliver instantly full electrical power in low operating temperatures.
