PEM Fuel Cells "are the primary candidates for light-duty vehicles, for buildings, and potentially for much smaller applications such as replacements for rechargeable batteries in video cameras." United States Department of Energy · First authoritative book on theory and practice of PEM fuel cells · Contains hundreds of original illustrations and real-life engineering examples · Practical teaching tool for engineering students. Demand for alternative energy sources is on the rise and fuel cells are pulling ahead as the leading technology. Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells in particular are experiencing an upsurge because of their high power density and ability to vary output quickly to meet shifts in power demand. Until now, there has been little written about this important technology. PEM Fuel Cells: Theory and Practice lays the groundwork for fuel cell engineers, technicians and students. Through the use of real life examples on the various aspects of fuel cell engineering, this book covers the fundamental aspects of fuel cell design, electrochemistry of the technology, heat and mass transport, system design and applications. From fuel cell performance to sizing the system components, this is the most comprehensive teaching tool available.Barbir, Frano is the author of 'Pem Fuel Cells Theory And Practice', published 2005 under ISBN 9780120781423 and ISBN 0120781425.
