Drive is on for Ford Focus Fuel Cell Car

February 26, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Enova Systems, a developer and manufacturer of electric, hybrid and fuel cell digital power management systems, has received a purchase order and will begin delivery of production high voltage power conversion systems (HPC) for the Ford Motor Company’s Focus FCV, a hydrogen powered fuel cell vehicle. Enova’s bi-directional high voltage power converter is a critical component of the fuel cell power system, converting and regulating high voltage power to lower voltages for use in mobile and stationary fuel cell systems. For the Ford Focus FCV, Enova’s module transfers power between the fuel cell, the drive system and the battery and assists in energy recovery during regenerative braking. The source of propulsion power is therefore transparent to the driver, allowing him or her to concentrate on normal vehicle operation.
