Electric Mobility

Electric mobility is the first alternative drive

This is by far the most well-known alternative drive. By special financial support of electric mobility of the german federal government, new admissions of electric vehicles increases.  Electric power is stored and provided by batteries – mostly Lithium-Ionen-Batteries. In case of malfunction of a Lithium-Ionen-Battery a short-circuit can occur inside the battery cell. Through the short-circuit light arcs and heat can arise.

These phenomenons turn the electrolyste inside the battery into vaporization. Steam / Gases are highly flammable and can lead to a fire or an explosion in case of an ignition source. This reactions depends on the charge level of the battery. As higher the charge lever as heavier and faster the reaction / explosion normally will be.

Technology with Hydrogen

Another alternative drive is hydrogen – the so called fuel cell technology.

Inside the fuel cell electric power is gained from hydrogen. This happens by reversal electrolysis. Hydrogen and atmospheric oxygen reacts into water, warmth and electric power arise. Latter drives the electric engine. Hydrogen is a highly flammable gas which subjects to exothermal reaction or to an explosion in case of presence of an ignition source and the right mixing ratio. These phenomenons can be examined and developed at RTC. Safety concepts and variant solutions can be worked out by these results.
