Since September 2021, the project has been working on the design of hydrogen propulsion. The vision: emission-free aviation.
The project team consists of 16 ETH mechanical and electrical engineering students as well as a professor and main supervisor. The CELLSIUS association provides the technical knowledge from previous projects.
With over 30 sensors and another 30 active or passive components, a fuel cell system is a complex challenge. This is where advanced control engineering, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics meet. Only careful coordination of cooling elements and the controlled supply of hydrogen and oxygen make a flightworthy system possible.
