Fuel Cell Systems Explained
Second Edition

James Larminie and Andrew Dicks

Fuel cell technology is developing at a rapid pace, thanks to the increasing awareness of the need for pollution-free power sources. Moreover, new developments in catalysts and improved reliability have made fuel cells viable candidates in a road range of applications, from small power stations, to cars, to laptop computers and mobile phones. Building on the success of the first edition, Fuel Cell Systems Explained presents a balanced introduction to this growing area.
Provides an essential guide to the principles, design and application of fuel cell systems
Includes full and updated coverage of fuel processing and hydrogen generation and storage systems
Presents a full and clear explanation of the operation of all the major fuel cell types, and an introduction to possible future technology, such as biological fuel cells
Features a new chapter on the direct methanol fuel cell
Now includes examples of the modelling, design and engineering of real fuel cell systems
Offers a clear overview of fuel cell operation and thermodynamics
Provides coverage of the complete fuel cell system, including compressors, turbines, and the electrical and electronic sub-systems such as regulators, inverters, grid inter-ties, electric motors, and hybrid fuel cell/battery systems .
