Title: Fuel Cell Handbook update

Abstract

The objective of this work was to update the 1988 version of DOE`s Fuel Cell Handbook. Significant developments in the various fuel cell technologies required revisions to reflect state-of-the-art configurations and performance. The theoretical presentation was refined in order to make the handbook more useful to both the casual reader and fuel cell or systems analyst. In order to further emphasize the practical application of fuel cell technologies, the system integration information was expanded. In addition, practical elements, such as suggestions and guidelines to approximate fuel cell performance, were provided.

  • Work on the phosphoric acid fuel cell at Engelhard Corp. relates toward relatively low power-demand product applications of less than 100 kW for buildings and vehicles. The stack technology program focuses on reliability confirmation and cost reduction. The key activity in the building application program during 1985 was the construction and extended operation of a 25 kW stack, while the vehicular application program is concentrating on fuel cell power systems for electric forklift trucks.
  • A field test has been conducted over three years, efficiently providing both electricity and heat to a variety of multifamily residential, commercial, and light industrial buildings in the United States and Japan. The program has included two other efforts complementing the field test: a parallel technology development project to improve reliability, performance and maintainability as well as to decrease manufacturing costs; and activities of the Onsite Fuel Cell Users Group, which performs economic studies and business assessments pertinent to the commercialization and application of the technology.
  • This presentation summarizes U.S. Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Demonstration Project 2010 Status Update.
  • Energy Research Corporation's molten carbonate fuel goals are commericalization of the MW-class natural gas units and 100 MW-class coal gas/natural gas dual fuel units (long-term). Accomplishments have been made in stack height scale-up, issues relevant to attaining a long useful life for the carbonate fuel cell have been resolved, and organizational and financial aspects of power plant demonstration have been addressed. 10 figs, 7 refs. (DLC)
