There is an increased focus on developing alternative green energy sources for use in transport or power generation. Fuel cell and electrolyzer systems 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 engineers developing this new technology.

If you are interested in learning how to efficiently design and test fuel cell and electrolyzer systems, tune into this interactive webinar.

In this webinar, we discuss how to:

  • Model fundamental components of electrochemical cells
  • Design 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)
  • Analyze the distribution of currents, potentials, temperature, and chemical species within the cell
  • Evaluate cell operating conditions by simulating electrode configurations and membranes
  • Model multiphase and single-phase flow in gas diffusion electrodes
  • Account for multiphysics phenomena in fuel cells involving heat transfer, fluid flow, and chemical reactions
