Alternative Power Systems Projects Initiated with Input by Nissan

Fuel Cell Simulation

Goals:

Develop a fuel cell simulation framework based on Loci framework to integrate all essential
component models for seamless and dynamic fuel cell simulations.

Develop multi
-
fidelity simulation strategies for efficient and accurate fuel cell simulations
targeting the design, optimization, and diagnostics of fuel cell systems.

Develop and validate essential fuel cell component models and integrated models through
both bulk and distribution measurements.

Develop advanced material characterization and measurement techniques for model
validation and fuel cell operation monitoring and diagnostics.


Experimental Fuel Cells

Goals:

To obtain the kinetic parameters of the ORR as a function of temperature between

20 to
30
°
C at a polycrystalline Pt surface in acid/water or acid/salt/water solutions

To characterize Nafion PEMFC proton
-
conducting membranes by SANS and proton
conductivity studies after exposure to: (1) low temperature operation; (2) high temperature
operation; (3) CO and SO2 during operation; and (4) operation at high current density. The
characterization will involve SANS/USANS studies of changes in the domain structure versus
that of the virgin membrane (before operation). Proton conductivity measurements will also
be used to attempt correlation of proton conductivity to phase domain structure
