  1. 1. The Anode in the Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Joakim Nordlund; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : direct methanol fuel cell; fuel cell; DMFC; anode; model;

    Abstract : The direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) is a very promisingpower source for low power applications. High power and energydensity, low emissions, operation at or near ambientconditions, fast and convenient refuelling and a potentiallyrenewable fuel source are some of the features that makes thefuel cell very promising.

  4. 4. Mathematical Modeling of Transport Phenomena in Polymer Electrolyte and Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mekanik

    Author : Erik Birgersson; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : Fuel Cell; DMFC; PEFC; model; visual cell; scale analysis; one-phase; two-phase;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with modeling of two types of fuel cells:the polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) and the directmethanol fuel cell (DMFC), for which we address four majorissues: a) mass transport limitations; b) water management(PEFC); c) gas management (DMFC); d) thermal management.Four models have been derived and studied for the PEFC,focusing on the cathode.
