Designing Robust Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers with Multiphysics Simulation - Archived
If you are interested in learning how to efficiently develop fuel cell and electrolyzer systems, join us for this interactive webinar.
There is an increased focus on developing alternative green energy sources for use in transport and power generation. Fuel cells and electrolyzers have been steadily gaining popularity as a potential solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as the negative environmental impact of car pollutants. The high R&D cost, however, is a common roadblock for companies developing this new technology. Multiphysics simulation tools like COMSOL Multiphysics® help engineers accurately understand and design fuel cells and electrolyzer systems in a time- and cost-effective manner.
Key aspects we will cover:
- Modeling fundamental components of electrochemical cells
- Designing different types of fuel cell and electrolyzer systems, including proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), hydroxide exchange (alkaline) fuel cells (AFCs), molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFCs), and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs)
- Analyzing the distribution of currents, potentials, temperature, and chemical species within a cell
- Evaluating cell operating conditions by simulating electrode configurations and membranes
- Modeling multiphase and single-phase flow in gas diffusion electrodes
- Accounting for multiphysics phenomena in fuel cells involving heat transfer, fluid flow, and chemical reactions
