QPAC A320 Simulation at H2 Expo
QPAC Emergency Power System at H2 Expo
The Fuel Cell based Emergency Power System demonstrator is interfaced with the QPAC A320 X-plane plugin to create a "hardware in the loop" simulation. When the aircraft simulation experiences complete power loss due to an emergency, the simulation sends a signal to the Raspberry Pi based interface controller which enables the SuSy300 Fuel Cell system. The SuSy300 system provides a stable electrical output (600 W) in under 3 seconds. This data is fed back to the simulator which allows the control surfaces to be operated in an emergency mode, thus completing the hardware-simulation coupling.
