The NAUTILUS project is a research project that aims at the development of a low-emission energy system for large passenger ships. The novel system will take care of all heat and power needs of the cruise vessel. The concept consists of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-battery hybrid genset integrated with existing Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) generators.
All over the world, we are witnessing consequences of climate change, such as melting glaciers, bleaching corals, draughts, floods and extreme weather fluctuations. Moreover, air pollution has a negative impact on human health such as the spread of cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer or asthma. Besides the impact on human health, acidic rains threaten the natural environment of many animal species and endanger biodiversity.
Cem Ünlübayir from the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives, RWTH Aachen University will present his research results reached within the NAUTILUS project at the 2022 IEEE/AIAA Transportation Electrification Conference and Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium (ITEC+EATS) that will be held in Anaheim, California on June 15-17, 2022. He will give a speech on June 16 on Technical Session 3 (Efficient and Robust Marine Power Systems) about the Development of an intelligent energy management strategy for a hybrid maritime propulsion system considering component aging.
Dr. Asif Ansar from German Aerospace Center, Head of Energy System Head of Department DLR - German Aerospace Center, will give a speech at Technical Forum of Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Europe 2022 (30th May – 2nd June 2022) /HMI 2022, Hall 13, Stand A80, Germany.
