By R.H. Thring
The continued development of fuel cells for vehicles is imperative due to concern about climate change and the impact of exhaust emissions, as well as concern for the security of our energy supply.
This book includes chapters by experts in the field and draws on both academic and industry-related research.
The Fuel cell vehicle system; Fuel cell types: alkaline, SOFC, DMFC, and PEM fuel cells; Fuel Sources: such as hydrogen from reformation and renewable sources; Fuel cell storage; Fuel cell modeling; Materials issues; Simulation of the fuel cell vehicle.
This volume will be welcomed by both designers and manufacturers of fuel cell systems and components, as well as vehicle manufacturers and anyone with interest in the viability of this developing technology.
