Pankl’s fuel cell air supply (FCAS) systems support the next generation of high-performance fuel cells from 30kW to 300kW and are recognized for their superior mass/size ratio. Pankl FCAS are optimized for transient response and start-stop operation.
Design innovations such as high-efficiency air foil bearings, ultra-high-speed permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) and leading-edge inverter technology increase stack power density as well as generate significant power gains.
Bespoke high-efficiency compressor and expander stages guarantee the best boosting strategy for all fuel cell operating conditions.
Pankl’s electrically assisted turbocharger (EAT) can deliver unmatched power density through superior aerodynamics and electrical design, helping customers achieve the diesel and gasoline powertrain efficiencies required to meet the latest emissions standards. Pankl EAT technology utilizes advanced aerodynamic matchings to optimize the turbine for lambda-1 rated power.
The ultra-high-speed permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and roller bearing system ensure exceptional transient response to powertrain torque demand. The addition of a wide-range compressor simultaneously improves low-end performance and expands high-end performance. Pankl inverters support advanced boosting and energy recovery strategies concurrently.
Pankl’s electric motor and inverter system designs support the implementation of FCAS and EAT units into a wide range of electric system architectures, from 48V to 800V.
