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 :

Fuel Cell Micro-grids describes an energy supply method based on a network of two or more proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEM-FC). Such a network enables the effective use of exhaust heat, the simplification of the transmission network, the possibility of backup during disruptive hazards and the consideration of regional factors. Furthermore, green energy and renewable energy systems can be connected to the network, to function in cooperation with the fuel cells. For these reasons, it is believed that an increasing number of applications will make use of such fuel cell energy networks. Fuel Cell Micro-grids analyses the operation plan of these new energy supply methods using genetic algorithms. The book explains the results of the analysis of the optimization operation plan, energy cost, and greenhouse gas discharge characteristics for many application cases of the fuel cell network.

Book Description :

This dissertation summarizes our progress towards miniature fuel cells that could replace and outperform small batteries to meet various power demands. With increasing need of power being critical for portable electronics, the demand for better batteries continues to grow. Lithium-ion batteries dominate the market at the moment, but the current capacities on the order of 200 Wh/kg are approaching their inherent limits. Many researchers have being pursuing alternative power sources, forming a rapidly growing field in engineering and science. For applications too small for batteries (below 1 cm and even 1 mm), currently no proper power source is available, despite over a decade of significant efforts by many in power micro electromechanical systems (power MEMS). Encouraged by the advantages of their macro counterparts, micro fuel cells have received attention as a potentially powerful, efficient, and clean power source for miniature applications, resulting in extensive research in micro fuel cells and even commercial introduction of some small fuel cells. However, they are not yet powerful enough to consider someday replacing batteries for a wide range of portable applications. While the promise of fuel cells is in their high theoretical energy density, unfortunately the promise is lost in current portable fuel cells because of their complex system that includes ancillary components such as mechanical pump, reformer, pressurized oxygen source, and gas separator. This dissertation summarizes our attempt to realize a full (i.e., complete, standalone) fuel cell with small footprint, extending the spirit of self-pumped fuel that eliminated ancillary components in the active fuel circulation system to self-controlled oxygen generation for a packaged oxidant supply. We first eliminate fuel pump, gas separator, membrane electrode assembly (MEA) and even pressurized oxygen tank to make anodic chamber simple and self-regulating. As the next step towards realizing a full fuel cell stackable as batteries, we develop a self-regulating oxygen generation system that supplies oxygen within the fuel cell, i.e., not relying on the ambient air. For our final goal, we integrate the self-pumped fuel supply and the self-regulated oxygen supply into one device to prove the concept of a full fuel cell suitable for a stacked configuration.

Book Description :

Sensor networks used for activities like border security, search and rescue, planetary exploration, commonly operate in harsh environments for long durations, where human supervision is minimal. A major challenge confronting such devices is providing adequate and reliable power supply required for long durations. This research considers the feasibility of a miniature Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell system coupled with battery to supply power for long life missions. The focus of this research is to prove the feasibility of long-life, self-contained power-supplies using miniature fuel cells for low-power distributed sensor networks. In this research, the performance of fuel cell power-supplies weighing not more than a few hundred grams is studied. The performance of the PEM fuel cell is modeled, analyzed and validated using experimental results. The feasibility of the fuel cell power systems are studied for two reference missions - one on the lunar surface and the other in the desert regions of Negev, Israel. This research analyzes the use of passive methods to achieve thermal, air and water management for PEM fuel cells supplying power to these field sensors. The results of this study suggest that the proposed fuel cell power system is capable of providing power to sensor modules in challenging field conditions with operational lives extending from many months to years. The scope of this concept can be extended to power devices such as micro-robots and small unmanned aerial vehicles operating in extreme environmental conditions for sustained periods of time.
