Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. It has a place in the energy mix of the future, especially regarding fuel cells (FCs).
This book is an investigation into FCs. Prominence is given to the subject of PEMFCs (proton exchange membrane fuel cells) as they offer interesting perspectives on transport and stationary applications. This being said, a number of technological and scientific obstacles remain to be overcome before an industrial level of development can be reached.
These obstacles are listed throughout the book and solutions to render this technology more reliable in the short term are proposed. The book considers three main topics: FC systems and their experimental implementation, the hybridization of FC generators, and FC diagnostics and prognostics.
1. Fuel Cells: the Path Towards Hydrogen Revolution.
2. From FC to System.
3. Hybridization of Generators.
4. Diagnostics and Prognostics of Fuel Cell Generators.
Samir Jemeï is Associate Professor (HDR) at the University of Burgundy Franche-Comté, France. For over twenty years, he has been working in the field of fuel cells, specifically on FC hybridization and the diagnostic and prognostic of FC generators.
