Laboratory for Sustainable Transport Solutions
The Department of Energy Conversion and Propulsion Systems (ECaPS) hosts a large laboratory for sustainable transport solutions, the Laboratory for Sustainable Transport Solutions, LaSTS. The laboratory is equipped with five engine test cells (multi- and single-cylinder engines, truck and car engines), a hybrid rig for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, as well as a multifunctional room. We also have an entire laboratory for advanced optical measurement methods, where we mainly analyze fuel spray and gas jets. For several years now, our focus has been on renewable fuels and electricity, and we have a hydrogen infrastructure that enables experimental research on hydrogen cars, engines, hydrogen jets and fuel cell systems.
