BRAVA Introduction

Introducing the Future of Aviation Power: Unlocking the Potential of PEM Fuel Cells

The Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell (FC) technology emerging from the automotive industry is of high interest for the future aeronautic industry. However, while automotive FC systems are limited to about 100 kW, an aircraft requires a significantly greater amount of power (multi-MW) In addition, it must operate at different conditions, while being light-weight and keeping the system’s safety and reliability levels to aeronautical standards. Towards these requirements, the 3-year project BRAVA will develop breakthrough subsystem technologies (incl. catalysts, membranes, cooling systems and heat exchangers and air supply) for a FC-based Power Generation System (PGS) for aviation.
