Vehicle Projects Controls the World's Largest Fuel-Cell Hybrid Locomotive with NI LabVIEW and CompactRIO
Vehicle Projects LLC
"We chose LabVIEW and CompactRIO because the NI C Series modules with integrated signal conditioning helped us implement fast monitoring of the various I/O points while connecting to a wide range of specialty sensors such as flowmeters and pressure sensors. "
Energy storage systems (ESSs) and renewable energy sources are critical technologies that combine to create power generation and transportation. ESSs also need to be renewable. There are many types of ESSs including chemical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal. The focus in this section is on electrochemical and electric ESSs such as batteries, fuel cells, capacitors, and super capacitors or ultra capacitors. NI technologies are used to research, design, test, and deploy ESSs that range from fuel cells for automotive applications to large-scale battery tests with Exide Industries Limited.
