The previous electronic control system of the cell has been replaced with a device realized “ad hoc” inside our laboratory after a careful planning and a deepen study of the most efficient algorithms.

It was also optimized the strategic shutdown control of the fuel cell in order to minimize the consumptions in the race and make more efficient the security system.

Further improvement has been studied and applied to the choking system of the air intake in order to maintain a suitable temperature into the cell.
