Incorporating a battery into the fuel cell powertrain allows operating the fuel cell at optimal conditions while changes in the load are balanced by the battery which can increase the flexibility of the whole system. With the BALIS test facility, it is possible to investigate the single operation of the battery or the fuel cell system as well as any hybrid mode. For the first demonstration, commercial Li-Ion batteries from the automotive or the building sector are used. In the test field the incoming and outgoing electric power is measured.
