  1. 1. On direct hydrogen fuel cell vehicles modelling and demonstration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Kristina Haraldsson; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical engineering; direct hydrogen; Proton Exchange Membrane; PEM; fuel cell; fuel cell vehicle; fuel cell hybrid vehicles; on-board hydrogen storage; Kemiteknik; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, direct hydrogen Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell systems in vehicles are investigated through modelling, field tests and public acceptance surveys.A computer model of a 50 kW PEM fuel cell system was developed. The fuel cell system efficiency is approximately 50% between 10 and 45% of the rated power. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Nanostructured Fuel Cell Catalysts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Marie Gustavsson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nafion; thin film evaporation; model catalyst; electrocatalyst; acetic acid oxidation; oxygen reduction; colloidal lithography; PEMFC; screening; Pt; formaldehyde oxidation; methanol oxidation; nanofabrication; CO oxidation; polymer electrolyte; TiOx;

    Abstract : A long term challenge for society is to develop sustainable energy systems to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and to decrease air pollution. This requires new alternatives regarding the supply of energy and increased efficiency of the future energy systems. Fuel cell technology is one such possible alternative. READ MORE
