On-vehicle Fuel Delivery Systems - Building a Bridge to Hydrogen
Several OEM's like JCB, Cummins, Liebherr, and Hyundai Doosan are launching hydrogen ICE's but what about delivering hydrogen to the engine. We've learned a lot in the past 10 years from delivering natural gas to the Cummins NG engine platform, mostly on refuse trucks. What are similarities and what are the differences between methane and hydrogen. What should you consider when designing and maintaining an on-board hydrogen fuel system (HFS). I'll look at the key components involved with fuel convenance, fuel control, and filtration. I'll cover standards and certifications along with a look into the hydrogen fuel cell (FCEV).
