Analytical Modelling of Fuel Cells

Andrei A. Kulikovsky


Tell others about this book:
In fuel cell research, the gap between fundamental electrochemical processes and the engineering of fuel cell systems is bridged by the physical modelling of fuel cells. This relatively new discipline aims to understand the basic transport and kinetic phenomena in a real cell and stack environment, paving the way for improved design and performance. The author brings his unique approach to the analytical modelling of fuel cells to this essential reference for energy technologists.

This text:

•covers recent advances and analytical solutions to a range of problems faced by energy technologists, from catalyst layer performance to thermal stability

•provides detailed graphs, charts and other tools (glossary, index) to maximize R&D output while minimizing costs and time spent on dead-end research

•presents Kulikovsky’s signature approach (and the data to support it), which uses "simplified" models based on idealized systems, basic geometries, and minimal assumptions, enabling qualitative understanding of the causes and effects of phenomena

Kulikovsky has used Maple throughout the book to solve several problems presented.  In addition, the text includes a CD-ROM which contains Maple codes as well as comments to help readers apply them.

Those who will find this a particularly useful resource include professionals working in the energy market (transportation, residential, industrial, military, and aerospace segments), as well as chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, and organic chemists.
