Design and Development of an Air-Reformate PEM Fuel Cell Stack System for Light-Duty Vehicles 2000-01-1553
Honeywell is developing a 50-kW, high efficiency PEM fuel cell stack system (FCSS) for use in light-duty vehicle transportation under sponsorship from the Department of Energy (DOE) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District. The performance goals of the FCSS include weight, volume, cost, efficiency, and transient performance. The project includes design, testing, and delivery of the FCSS to DOE. A conceptual system design is presented including trade study results and the technology gaps that must be bridged to meet the DOE goals.
