4504107 Introduction to Fuel Cell 3.0 3
Description This course enables students to fully understand the basic principles of the fuel cell, key technologies, and the commercialization of the development and the application process, and to analyze and discuss the design of fuel cell system. Fuel cell is an electrochemical power generating device. It can directly convert the chemical energy of fuel into the electrical energy via the electrochemical reaction. Because it does not go through the process of thermal engine in the energy conversion process, and therefore a higher energy conversion efficiency. Teaching outlines of the course can be divided into the followings: Introduction to fuel cell, Fuel cell efficiency, Proton exchange membrane fuel cell, Phosphoric acid fuel cell, Alkaline fuel cell, Direct methanol fuel cell, Solid oxide fuel cell, Fueling fuel cell, Calculation example of fuel cell.
