Science Network (Reporter correspondent Liu Yang into Ge Deng Wangqiang) March 19, the world’s first hydrogen column tram in CSR Qingdao Sifang Locomotive Co., Ltd. (CSR Sifang) line. This is another masterpiece, following China South Locomotive and developed the world’s first column after the tram super capacitor energy storage, which is available to fill the hydrogen in the blank field applications worldwide tram, so that our country became the world’s first control of state of the technology.
This is a major urban public transport applications for light trains, maximum operating speed of 70 km, a hydrogen fill just three minutes, and sustainable travel up to 100 kilometers. Not only can no catenary line operators do not need to be set up charging stations along the way to solve the previously stored energy short tram Mileage “bottleneck” problem.
“According to the current national average of 15 km of tram lines mileage calculations a second hydrogen filling hydrogen tram, running back and forth at least three times.” CSR Sifang chief engineer Liang Jianying said.
According to reports, the train off the assembly line of hydrogen by CSR Sifang joint industry from 2013 onwards authoritative research institutes, which lasted nearly two years of research, breaking a series of key hydrogen fuel cell technology will be applied to the tram, the first successful development. The onboard hydrogen storage bottles made of carbon fiber material, the equivalent of up to 1000 kg can withstand high pressure, its smart detection system for hydrogen fuel cell system can also perform two protection. In addition, hydrogen fuel cells in the whole course of the reaction the maximum temperature does not exceed 100 ℃, does not produce nitrogen oxides, the only product is water, safe and environmentally friendly.
Liang Jianying said that the current hydrogen fuel cell technology has already begun in the international automobile commercial application, but has just started in the rail transport sector, especially in the field of tram is still blank. The advent of hydrogen tram, which means after the catenary type trams and tram Following the energy storage to new energy as a symbol of a modern streetcar “3.0 times” has been opened.
