Cooling systems and turbo compressors

To apply hydrogen-electric powertrains on board future low-emission aircraft, new cooling systems and turbo compressors are required. Fuel cells powered by hydrogen need sufficient oxygen at high altitudes. Powerful electric turbo compressors must be developed for this purpose.

The temperature management in and around these powertrains is extremely critical. New thermal management systems are being developed, such as unique two-phase pumped and compressed loop cooling system.

The development of new system technology with test setups leads to compact systems, scale-up, and TRL increase.

More information about this project will follow after the project plan is fully submitted.
