Power where it’s needed: engineering a more efficient solution for off-highway vehicle hydraulics

Much of the energy is consumed by off-highway work vehicles is used in lifting, carrying or digging - for which the technology can often be comparatively old-fashioned and inefficient. In 2018, the Advanced Propulsion Centre awarded a £10.9 million grant to the DDISPLACE project, which set out to address these challenges with a fundamental rethink on hydraulic system design.

Delivering the goods: prototype fuel cell electric Transit van

Battery researchers have traditionally had to rely on computer models if they wanted to observe the flow of current within a cell. These vary in accuracy, and any errors in the simulation can be carried through to the cell design, affecting its real-world performance. So, what if you could see inside the cell and directly visualise the flow of current?
