Book Description :

This volume contains an archival record of the NATO Advanced Institute on Mini – Micro Fuel Cells – Fundamental and Applications held in Çesme – Izmir, Turkey, July 22–August 3, 2007. The ASIs are intended to be a high-level teaching activity in scientific and technical areas of current concern. In this volume, the reader may find interesting chapters on Mini- Micro Fuel Cells with fundamentals and applications. In recent years, fu- cell development, modeling and performance analysis has received much attention due to their potential for distributed power which is a critical issue for energy security and the environmental protection. Small fuel cells for portable applications are important for the security. The portable devices (many electronic and wireless) operated by fuel cells for providing all-day power, are very valuable for the security, for defense and in the war against terrorism. Many companies in NATO and non-NATO countries have concentrated to promote the fuel cell industry. Many universities with industrial partners committed to the idea of working together to develop fuel cells. As tech- logy advanced in the 1980s and beyond, many government organizations joined in spending money on fuel-cell research. In recent years, interest in using fuel cells to power portable electronic devices and other small equipment (cell phones, mobile phones, lab-tops, they are used as micro power source in biological applications) has increased partly due to the promise of fuel cells having higher energy density.

Book Description :

Miniaturization of power generators to the MEMS scale, based on the hydrogen-air fuel cell, is the object of this research. The micro fuel cell approach has been adopted for advantages of both high power and energy densities. On-board hydrogen production/storage and an efficient control scheme that facilitates integration with a fuel cell membrane electrode assembly (MEA) are key elements for micro energy conversion. Millimeter-scale reactors (ca. 10 ℗æL) have been developed, for hydrogen production through hydrolysis of CaH2 and LiAlH4, to yield volumetric energy densities of the order of 200 Whr/L. Passive microfluidic control schemes have been implemented in order to facilitate delivery, self-regulation, and at the same time eliminate bulky auxiliaries that run on parasitic power. One technique uses surface tension to pump water in a microchannel for hydrolysis and is self-regulated, based on load, by back pressure from accumulated hydrogen acting on a gas-liquid microvalve. This control scheme improves uniformity of power delivery during long periods of lower power demand, with fast switching to mass transport regime on the order of seconds, thus providing peak power density of up to 391.85 W/L. Another method takes advantage of water recovery by backward transport through the MEA, of water vapor that is generated at the cathode half-cell reaction. This regulation-free scheme increases available reactor volume to yield energy density of 313 Whr/L, and provides peak power density of 104 W/L. Prototype devices have been tested for a range of duty periods from 2-24 hours, with multiple switching of power demand in order to establish operation across multiple regimes. Issues identified as critical to the realization of the integrated power MEMS include effects of water transport and byproduct hydrate swelling on hydrogen production in the micro reactor, and ambient relative humidity on fuel cell performance.

Book Description :

Micro fuel cells are currently being investigated as replacement for both primary and secondary batteries. While many technological challenges remain in micro he1 cell research, the key issue for all micro he1 cells is the volume of the system. While significant advances have been made in reducing the number and size of required components, the cell itself is difficult to miniaturize. Many researchers have attempted to apply different variants of micro fabrication techniques to the fabrication of micro fuel cells. We have elected to pursue an unusual inside-out architecture, where the membrane is used as a substrate, and thick and thn film depositions are used to create the active layers of the cell itself By using a combination of analytical and h t e element analysis techniques, we were able to derive practical values for critical parameters including: the hydraulic hameter; electrode length; gas diffusion layer conductivity and porosity; and operating temperature of the he1 cell with respect to the environment. These values were used to create a new he1 cell fabrication technique and architecture, which used a hybrid fabrication technique where the tool and die were fabricated using micro fabrication techniques, but the cell itself was fabricated using traditional manufacturing techniques. To successfdly fabricate these designs, a new stable supported membrane, and a particle based castable diffusion layer were required. These new materials had unusual mechanical properties, as well as their desired electrochemical properties. Testing the cell we found performance significantly lower than predicted. We traced the performance shortfall to a lower than required cathode GDL conductivity and porosity. Significant advances in GDL material design will be required to maximize the potential of the cell architecture.
