Project

The impact of membrane electrolyte assembly composition and operation conditions on impedance response in high temperature PEM fuel cells

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

High temperature PEM fuel cells is a highly attractive and efficient energy conversion technology. Even though the HTPEMFC is moving towards commercial breakthrough, improvements of different components of the HTPEMFC is required and an increased and detailed understanding of electrochemical performance and durability for the membrane electrolyte assembly (MEA) is important.

The objective of this project is to use Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) to investigate how alteration of different MEA components and operating conditions such as reactant partial pressure, humidification, temperature etc., affect the performance. Additional objective is to develop a method and tools for rapid data analysis using suitable open source software.

The project will a joint project with Danish Power Systems (www.daposy.dk) and DTU Energy.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
