Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that convert the chemical energy of a reaction directly into electrical energy. Of the many types of fuel cells currently under development, Polymer Electrolyte Membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) show promise as components in highly efficient smaller auxiliary power units, and in transportation industry. This web-based seminar will familiarize you with polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, explain why the auto industry is investing heavily in PEMFC technology, and show how you can take advantage of new computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling tools to improve fuel cell component designs and optimize system performance.
Fluent Inc. has developed new CFD tools, which enable modeling of PEMFC. A polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell consists of an ion-conducting, impermeable electrolyte layer, bounded by porous anode and cathode diffusion layers, flow channels and current collecting regions. Therefore, a PEMFC model must take into account:
Details on all of these models will be provided during the seminar. Results of model validation against experimental data will also be shown.
