Abstract:

A compact hydrogen generator for small liquid hydrocarbon fueled fuel cells was designed, built and partially tested. The basic generator embodies the steam reforming of liquid fuels available to the military. Provisions have been made for sulfur removal and hydrogen purification can be achieved with a palladium-silver hydrogen separator. Extensive testing on the reforming unit was conducted and results reported. An electronic control system for startup and steady state operation was designed and built but was not fully integrated with the reformer. Emphasis throughout the study was placed on miniaturizing components. Author
