Hydrogen Storage Techniques in Fuel Cell Vehicles

Hydrogen is becoming increasingly an important fuel for transportation applications. The storage of hydrogen in fuel cell vehicles has been problematic to date due to low energy density of contemporary technologies. Therefore, research to compare state-of-the-art technologies and determine which, if any, meet targets released by the U.S. Department of Energy is the objective of

Automotive OEM ESS Evaluation

The objective is to complete a thermal analysis of the current design of an Energy Storage System (ESS) for an Electric Vehicle (EV) of an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner using Fluid ANSYS, a computer program specifically designed to test how fluid flow effects heat loss within a system. This is critical to EVs because

An Arizona-Specific, Real-World Driving Emissions Testing Methodology

The research project focuses on developing an Arizona-specific RDE test to corroborate and supplement the laboratory testing used to certify vehicles for sale and operation. The researcher is currently developing a clearer understanding of the currently employed testing methods used in the EU for NOx and PM measurements in RDE testing and is providing an

CoP Fleet Performance and Environmental Impact Evaluation

As the technology of Electric Vehicles (EVs) improves, city governments are becoming interested in updating their current fleet vehicles to reduce the environmental footprint. The objective of this research is to work with the City of Phoenix to propose replacement vehicles for their current city fleet. The decisions of various vehicle replacement recommendations will be
