PowerCell Sweden receives order from Chinese company for PowerCell S2 to be used as an EV range-extender
PowerCell Sweden AB has received an order for the PowerCell S2 fuel cell stack from a Chinese company within the automotive industry. The PowerCell S2 will be used as a hydrogen-based range extender for electrified passenger cars.
The PowerCell S2 fuel cell stack is designed for efficient power generation in the range of 5 to 25 kW.
Once the car’s battery has been discharged to a predetermined level, the fuel cell automatically kicks in. The built-in fuel cell converts the on-board hydrogen to electric energy that is supplied to the battery so that the driver can continue his or her journey. The car is powered by the electric motor and the average power output is provided by the fuel cell to keep the battery charged. The battery contributes maximum power, such as when overtaking.
