Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell

Project Details

Description

The groups research in this area is focused on the investigation and development of low platinum loading gas diffusion electrodes (GDE) for the polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC).
Tests are being conducted on a single fixed test cell. Power densites of more than 0.5 W/cm2 are achieved when running the cell on pure hydrogen and oxygen at 80 C and ambient pressure. Operational parameters such as gas humidification, pressure, temperature and compostion of fuel and oxidant gases are also investigated.
