Abstract

When a hydrogen vehicle receives fuel, the fueling nozzle from the fill station is mechanically locked to the vehicle due to the high pressures of the fueling system. The vehicle confirmation signal will identify to the fill station that the vehicle is properly shut down and is ready to be connected to receive fuel. The fueling station would then release the fill station dispensing line and allow it to be connected to the vehicle.
