Safety Protection

1) It contains hydrogen leak detectors, temperature sensors, flow sensors, pressure sensors, etc.; To ensure the safety of hydrogen, a hydrogen sensor is designed and installed on the test platform. If hydrogen leaks, the controller program can take timely measures pursuant to the amount of leakage, reach the set dangerous value range, directly close the air source and load, and enter the emergency shutdown program. Since the safety of hydrogen is particularly significant, a special alarm light is designed on the top of the test platform. When hydrogen leaks, the alarm light can give a warning, reminding the operator to promptly enter the corresponding processing procedure as per the operating procedures.

2) For some emergencies like gas leakage, abnormal fuel cell status, etc., the monitoring parameters may change later than the operator perceives. The operator can press the emergency switch, and the system will immediately handle some key valve parts directly through the loop, disconnect the load, cut off the air source, open the exhaust valve to automatically release pressure, etc., and send the emergency button status signal to the controller. After the controller receives the signal, it promptly executes the fault handling procedure, thereby guaranteeing the safety of batteries, equipment and personnel.

3) The fuel cell test platform detects the fault of FCS engine and displays the fault on the upper computer interface.
