Abstract:

Design and assembly of a 560-watt experimental state of the art fuel cell system is described. This fuel cell was a low temperature, low pressure, C electrode system which operates on a continuous feed of II and O or air, and converts the potential chemical energy directly to electrical energy. The results of experimental testing are reported, covering both electrical characteristics and operating procedures over a broad range of conditions. Application of the knowledge obtained was directed toward the design of a fuel cell system suitable for operation in space. Author
