Is Hydrogen power a potential power for F1? - Combustion? Fuel Cells?

194 366 दृश्य

Honda are leaving F1 to pursue emission free tech. So what IS the future of Formula 1 power? Batteries are one possible future... but what about Hydrogen? And can we still have combustion engines?

  • For the fuel cell: You wrote "New but simple". That sounds like Either "New" or "simple" ist something Bad, that und He other has to compensate. When it is New, it has high Potential of getting better. When its simple, it has a high Potential of complicaiting It, to make it better. Old and difficult is the exact opposite of that. Both Things are actually Bad.

  • I'm about to rant here so bear with me. How is the issue 20 odd cars going around tracks 23 times a year? How much of an issue would that be? Instead of focusing all of this energy and hours of work on trying to find new innovative ways to make 20 cars emission-less, put that work into the real issue, at least regarding the massive industry that is F1. How about the planes and ships that move this equipment around the world? How about the millions of cars that still run on petrol? Or the giga-factories that pump out more carbon than ever? Once you fix that, F1 won't even be looked at twice. If the fate of car enthusiasts is to eventually drive a mobile battery pack that squeals, at least give us the pleasure of hearing some good ol' F1 cars rip around some tracks. On a side note, producing electric cars could be just as polluting if not more as driving standard combustion diesel cars, but we're not ready to have that conversation yet... [TLDR] Fix more polluting issues rather than worrying about 20 cars driving around tracks once in a blue moon.

  • I mean, if we *did* make a race (like Formula H like top comment suggests :P), it might do wonders for hydrogen power overall if it takes off. I mean, imagine the companies that race in it dumping *all* that research money into hydrogen power, and taking how to use it and make it more efficient, and then those companies making hydrogen powered standard cars based on how they found how to turn the hydrogen into power more effectively.

  • First of all F1 engines are up to 50% efficient on petrol running on hydrogen increases thermal efficiency by a small factor. It is very easy to solve the NOX issue with Hydrogen combudtion engines using ceramic Nitrogen/Oxygen seperator filters these concentrate oxygen so act as a solid state supercharger so increasing power and allows high hydrogen aiir ratios without increasing NOX.

  • Adding supercapacitors to race cars would make it possible to regen power from braking much more efficiently. They would only store maybe 10 sec boost of acceleration but in combination with the energy from the battery or hydrogen it will be enough until the next time the car have to slow down.

  • At first I'd like to thank you for bringing it up. For mobile applications we'll probably stay with liquified or compressed Hydrogen because chemical solutions are heavy and take to long to release the Hydrogen. If embedded into the Monocoque it shouldn't be more dangerous than current Petrols. So I don't think that Storage and Transport is a "big" Problem. About the costs either every team or the FIA could get a electrolyser and some tank units set up in shipping containers big enough to produce enough Hydrogen for the Raceweekend (maybe 2 so the machines could be set up at 2 Locations at a time), that way you'd only need electric power and water to produce the fuel for the race. So the costs could be shared by all teams. But I guess F1 is to "short range" 300km to 400 km a race to make Hydrogen - Fuelcells (HFC) worth it. I think Formula E could expand from city-circuits to race-tracks, because batteries will get better and better. My guess is the "HFC" will first get to race at 24h races, if i m not mistaken 2024 will be the first year with a HFC category at LeMans.

  • I really want hydrogen cell engines to become more popular. For the end user it combines advantages of combustion and electric powerplant. Instant throttle reaction and the most linear power delivery possible BUT without heavy batteries, with option to refuel quickly. The only downside for hydrogen cell is transporting it as it requires building new facilities and huge investment in logistics. BUT with lower weight, less environmental damage, lack of degradation, option to refuel it looks lime THE best solution fornfuture road cars and endurance race cars.

  • I have never been lucky enough to go to an F1 race, but certainly CART with its loud engines and intoxicating aroma of methanol. I’ve also been to Formula E, and though it seems so quiet and so foreign so far in Motorsport, it is no doubt the current future of the automobile industry and how suppliers see its market relevance. It is also quite exciting in its own way. It requires an open mind regarding speed and racing. It’s not for all. Therefore, if F1 can make a business case to manufacturers that hydrogen power can be advantageous and supported by the infrastructure needed to process its production as efficiently as possible, then (and only then) can it be a game changer and entice manufacturers. I’m not convinced yet that hydrogen power will win over manufacturers, consumers and current technology. And currently, any racing series needs to be reactive to that. Until these issues are resolved, I can’t expect things to move forward. Hydrogen power has been tested (often by transit authorities), while slowly and quietly being scrapped. I hope any and all technology that can advance Autosport and the automobile direction in the future can be a success.

  • Compressed hydrogen is not stored at 300 atm in fuel cell cars. It is stored at 700 atm, 700 bar, 70 MegaPascals. The refueling standard established around the world is known as H70. The older standard was H35 for buses at 350 atm. Fueling stations in California are no longer required to carry H35, it is becoming obsolete. Also the efficiency issue has no bearing on "motor sports" at all. The 3 minute refueling time of a hydrogen family sedan could easily be shrunk to seconds in a racing pit.

  • Nuclear, solar and hydroelectric energy used for electrolysis could be a very interesting system for generating hydrogen. Then we need some sort of chemical storage that can pack high amounts of hydrogen into dense arrangements for storage at atmospheric pressures, perhaps in a way that could be used directly in engines. Hydrocarbons already do this but there are significant downsides.. it'd be interesting to see if there could be some inert fluid that could hold large amounts of hydrogen in solution, with cars containing a reservoir for holding spent fluid or something along those lines.

  • I read somewhere a Wankel rotary engine design is particularly suited to burning hydrogen. In petrol form the rotary engine has many drawbacks, but when one switches to the hydrogen fuel, this drawback turns into a great combination. In fact Mazda built a prototype Mazda RX-8 hydrogen rotary car some years ago.

  • Alternative fuels have to continue to be developed because unlike Europe and the UK there are a lot of countries that either don't have a stable electrical grid or enough charging stations or both. I guess I come to this as an Australian where there still working on having enough charging stations for a car to go from Brisbane to Melbourne, let alone trucks to transport food and goods. And planes to travel and shipping etc. So whilst Formula 1 could eventually race electric cars that's not what is causing most of their greenhouse emissions. Not sure there is a useful point in any of my ramble sorry.

  • One point you missed about hydrocarbon fuels is that they can be heated and gasified to deliver really clean combustion. The reason this is not happening is it would make the gas mileage increases that the producers of fossil fuels view as a loss of demand because of the efficiency factor.

  • Meanwhile we transport everything via diesel trucks, jet planes and transport ships. All highly polluting. Making motorsports "green" is a futile exercise - we have FE so let's leave it to be the "environmentally friendly" motorsport. Let's have F1 embrace small turbocharged ICE engines and reduce the ridiculous costs associated with racing with hybrid powertrains. Can also make some gains, however minor, towards ICE efficiency since they are still the predominant power source for cars over the next 20 years. In that time F1 can buy out FE and maintain its position at the top of the food chain, presumably.

  • Could you combine the two into a single system? Use a fuel cell to extract electrical power from the hydrogen, and then burn it. Obviously this system would be very complicated but this would release more energy from the hydrogen. This could also allow for a testing platform for both technologies before transitioning to the consumer market.
