  1. 1. Bringing fuel cells to reality and reality to fuel cells A systems perspective on the use of fuel cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Maria Saxe; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Assessment; CUTE; Demonstration projects; Emerging technology; Evaluation; Fuel cell buses; Fuel cell systems; Fuel cells; Hype; Interdisciplinary; Niche markets; PEM; Radical technologies; SOFC; Strategic niche markets; Sustainability; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Chemical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : With growing awareness of global warming and fear of political instability caused by oil depletion, the need for a society with a sustainable energy system has been brought to the fore. A promising technology often mentioned as a key component in such a system is the fuel cell technology, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fuel Cells and Biogas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lars Hedström; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; air bleed; biogas; carbon dioxide; carbon monoxide; current distribution; dilution; efficiency; energy conversion; energy systems; experimental; fuel cell; fuel cell systems; PEFC; poisoning; reformate; SOFC; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Chemical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns biogas-operated fuel cells. Fuel cell technology may contribute to more efficient energy use, reduce emissions and also perhaps revolutionize current energy systems. The technology is, however, still immature and has not yet been implemented as dominant in any application or niche market. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Applied to the Analysis of Integrated Systems with Gas Turbines

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; statistical physics; plasma; plasmas; Gaser; fluiddynamik; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; Gases; fluid dynamics; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; Hybrid Cycles; Gas Turbines; Mathematical Modelling; Electrochemistry; Fuel Cells; Solid Oxide Fuel Cells; thermodynamics; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; klassisk mekanik; kvantmekanik; relativitet; gravitation; statistisk fysik; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; classical mechanics; quantum mechanics; relativity;

    Abstract : Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), working at high temperatures with an incomplete fuel oxidation process, have become an interesting candidate for combination with conventional power generation technology, such as gas turbines, in order to develop power plants that are both functional and efficient. An absolute condition for successful analysis and optimisation of such plants is the existence of reliable simulation tools. READ MORE

  4. 4. Applications for Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ivan Rexed; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell MCFC ; poisoning; electrolyte degradation; SO2; Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy EIS ; CO2 separation; button cell set-up; reversible molten carbonate fuel cell; high temperature electrolysis.; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Molten Carbonate Fuel cells are high temperature fuel cells suitable for distributed generation and combined heat and power, and are today being installed on commercial basis in sizes from 100kW to several MW. Novel applications for MCFC which have attracted interest lately are MCFC used for CO2 separation from combustion flue gas, and high temperature electrolysis with reversible fuel cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrogen Generation for Fuel Cells in Auxiliary Power Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marita Nilsson; KTH.; [2009]
