IEC 63341-1 Railway applications – Rolling stock – Fuel cell systems for propulsion -Part 1: Fuel cell power system


This document applies to Fuel Cell System for traction and auxiliaries purpose used on rolling stock. This document applies to any rolling stock types (e.g. light rail vehicles, tramways, streetcars, metros, commuter trains, regional trains, high speed trains, locomotives, etc). This document focuses on: – the scope of supply and the description of the interfaces (fluidic, electrical and mechanical), – the description of environmental conditions, – the design requirements and the functional requirements to ensure the fuel cell system compliancy with a railway application – the definition of the standardization process to validate the fuel cell system capacity required for a specific mission profile, – the safety and protection requirement to design and install a fuel cell system for railway application, – the protection of persons and the environment inside and outside the vehicle against hydrogen related hazards – the marking and labelling requirements – the requirements related to storage, transportation, installation and maintenance – the tests (type and routine) to validate the fuel cell system.
