    Presentation Transcript
    1. Fuel cells

    2. Fuel cell technology • One of the many possible solutions to energy production and pollution issue

    3. Christian Friedrich Schonbein Nationality: German Occupation: chemist Born: 1799 Died: 1868 Known for: invention of fuel cell

    4. William Robert Grove Nationality: British (Welsh) Occupation: Physical Scientist Born: 1811 Died: 1896 Known for: development of fuel cell in 1843

    5. Applications of fuel cells in the past and today Weather stations Military applications Soldier Wearable and Portable Power, Sensors and Surveillance, Stationary
Power Space applications

    6. How it works • A fuel cell is a device that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity. The chemical reaction which generates electricity is a combination of oxygen and hydrogen (fuel)

    7. Hydrogen is channelled to the anode

    8. While oxygen is channelled to the cathode

    9. Anode and cathode are separated by electrolyte membrane

    10. electrolyte membrane

    11. The Hydrogen is split into positive Hydrogen ions /(protons) and negatively charged electrons

    12. The membrane allows the positively charged ions to move to the cathode

    13. Electrical current is created by the movement of the electrons towards the cathode via an external circuit

    14. Waste product Water either as vapour or liquid or both

    15. Fuel cell stack • A fuel cell produces 0,86 volts so we need several fuel cells which are connected together in a Fuel cell stack

    16. CUTE ProjectClean Urban Transport for Europe

    17. Disadvantages • Difficulties in the production, transportation distribution and storage of Hydrogen • Fuel cells are very expensive to produce • Most of them are hand-made
