KI-Pirinha: intelligent protection versus H2-detonation

Intelligent protection against hydrogen detonation

KI-PIRINHA stands for Key enabling technologIes on Performance, Efficiency and Resilience by Artificial INtelligence for Hydrogen Applications. 

Contrary to its name, the aim of this research project is the avoidance of a detonation cocktail at all costs.

It aims to develop viable technical solutions to improve the safety and operational efficiency of H2-powered applications by combining the knowledge of experts in combustion research (CBOne) and experts in the simulation and control of complex dynamic systems using AI (FH JOANNEUM, Institute of Aviation). FH JOANNEUM is the project leader. This Austrian national research project is funded by BMK and FFG.

CBOne is 12 years old!

 

On 27 March 2024, CBOne will have been in existence for 12 years, employing people and delivering products and services. It will have been 12 years that it has been, on its scale, an economic engine that runs smoothly.

Every year when we reach this time, I update the staff lists, the number of articles, the number of patents, and the budgets. We mark an anniversary, we're happy to count another year, and we keep score. We set the objectives for the following year, and move on.

Allow me for once not to talk about figures.

Project LIQORNE – a dependable LH2 fuel system

LIQuid hydrogen for airbORNE applications

The world moves towards renewable, low emission fuels and this development includes aviation. Hydrogen enables clean, CO2-free combustion, but the stored liquid fuel needs to be cold – very cold. Temperatures lower than -252°C to be exact.

CBOne’s Legacy by 2050, a Vision (ETC15 Conference Talk)

The horizon 2050 will mark the era of a non-fossil fuel economy. The women and men who work at CBOne today will work on this energy transition, and will therefore reach this objective towards the end of their careers. With this long-term vision in mind, here are the concrete actions that CBOne has undertaken so far. 

CBOne participates to the 15th European Turbomachinery Conference in Budapest from the 24th to the 28th of April 2023. 

The recursive sequential combustion, a low-NOx technology by CBOne
