Fuel Cell Systems Engineering

Ricardo has developed a robust engineering design process that incorporate a wide range of disciplines necessary for fuel cell development as the technology evolves from the research domain to the full commercialization of products. We have a broad range of fuel cell system engineering capabilities, with over a decade of experience in a variety of technology research and application programmes. This experience helps us to bring to maturity a wide range of fuel cell systems involving complex interactions.

Fuel cell systems technology and services:

  • A complete system concept development, design, prototype build, testing and validation, and production implementation service
  • Stack/reformer design and structural analysis (e.g. sealing analysis, clamping assembly design and component stress simulation) and performance modelling and optimization of flow, current density and temperature distribution
  • Market studies and fuel cell system requirements definition
  • Concept design, development and both dynamic and steady state analysis
  • Detailed design, component selection, procurement, fabrication and assembly according to applicable codes and standards
  • Cost modelling and cost-down engineering
  • Safety analysis and failure mode effects analysis
  • Implementation of rigorous programme management and design control processes
  • Control system design, testing and implementation
  • Power electronics design and development
  • Comprehensive validation and testing support
  • System integration, supplier selection and management
