GAC successfully fires hydrogen engine
The to start with hydrogen motor independently produced by GAC has been effectively ignited, marking the entry of the group technological know-how into the zero-carbon emission period.
The zero-carbon emissions motor was independently produced based mostly on GAC’s fourth-era motor technological know-how. GAC Team retains totally independent intellectual assets legal rights to the technological know-how.
Using main hydrogen motor technological know-how as a basis, R&D centres optimised the technological know-how with a quantity of innovations.
These involve the newly produced combustion chamber, which improves the mixing procedure of hydrogen and air, and advancements to the hydrogen provide procedure, which improves electricity density and lessens the threat of hydrogen leakage.
The new motor also features enhanced warmth dissipation ability, further more minimising combustion challenges. By strengthening motor pistons, piston rings and connecting rods, warmth dissipation has been enhanced in both the cylinder head and cylinder block, a seemingly smaller change that results in a huge advancement in reliability and procedure. The concentrate on thermal effectiveness of this motor is anticipated to exceed forty four%, a leading domestic standard.
R&D will continue on to carry out thermodynamic calibration and mechanical development of the hydrogen motor, with the eventual aim of loading the complete total vehicle.
GAC will also do the job collaboratively to endorse industrial chains for hydrogen generation, storage and hydrogenation processes. This indicates marketing the comprehensive use of renewable electrical power sources these as wind and hydropower, and bettering the security and top quality of hydrogen storage.
