In our Aix-en-Provence agency and within the Research and Innovation department of the Altran part of Capgemini group, we launched a research project entitled SOGREEN (System Optimisation using GReen ENergies) more than a year and a half ago.
The aim is to develop innovative optimisation solutions, to develop a hydrogen propulsion chain and, from the beginning, to design a prototype in the Energy Boat Challenge format in order to be able to take part in this magnificent competition.
In this way, we are involving all the competitive and innovative spirit of our teams to promote our know-how in the field of mobility and clean energies.
We use a technology developed at the company for the control system: MUXlab. This device allows many sensors to be connected and is the component on which the energy management of our prototype is based. It is initially used for automotive prototyping. We develop energy and trajectory management tools based on Machine Learning technology. A Digital Twin model is also used to improve system management. The entire system is modelled in 3D for optimal integration of a hydrogen fuel cell. The entire system is modelled in 3D for optimal integration of a hydrogen fuel cell.
