3:45 pm - 6:15 pm Workshop A: Health management for MEA

Workshop is designed to explore the advances and challenges of incorporating systems health management in MEA’s. The aim of the workshop is to have experts and leaders in the industry to come together and discuss on incorporating diagnostics and prognostics methodologies for MEA systems health. The key objective is to develop this workshop into a Health Management and Safety Working Group were all participants can meet together at regular basis online or at MEA meetings regularly for discussions and updates and contribute to the community.
•Discuss challenges of implementing system health management to EA’s
•How different diagnosis and prognosis methods can be implemented both at system and subsystem level
•Fault Diagnostics and Prognostics for electronics and battery in MEA
•Hardware-in-loop (HIL/SIL) for validation of diagnostics and prognostics
•Health Management and Safety Working Group
