Abstract

Motor sports have been around as long as motor vehicles have been. Sports are often seen as costly polluter but in the same time the motor sports have encourages a large part of development, both for vehicles and other industries. Inventions like rear mirror and ABS brakes come from motor sports.

One way to once again drive development forward while making motor sports carbon-neutral is to run the race cars on hydrogen.

In this thesis, the goal is to convert a spark ignition engine for hydrogen operation. The basis for the hydrogen conversion is the current situation analysis, which raises questions about racing, safety, economy and technology.

In the current situation the most hydrogen are made from natural gas reforming, giving a net increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The technology and the desire are to produce hydrogen from all eco-friendly sources such as hydro, solar and wind power. Today, hydrogen is stored efficiently in 700 bars composite tanks.

This thesis shows how easy most diesel, wankel or spark ignition engines can be converted to hydrogen. Our engine has been converted through the reconstruction of ignition and fuel systems for hydrogen.

One possible scenario for hydrogen racing is to use professor Stenmark hydrogen balls (macro-spheres) in a piping system in the car. As the macro-spheres can be easily inserted in the pipe, the safety, space and emphasis in the car improved significantly against other storage methods of hydrogen. Today there are no race classes for hydrogen vehicles, but in the future, hydrogen vehicles can perhaps compete on equal terms or in their own classes.
