An overview of hydrogen fuel for vehicular application 2008-36-0322
Hydrogen is considered one of the cleanest solutions for sustainable mobility. This paper presents an overview of some of these applications, such as internal combustion engines, fuel cell application and also blends of hydrogen and natural gas.
This paper addresses questions regarding hydrogen properties such as net heating value, flame speed, power density, range of flammability and ignition energy. Also, the paper will draw a comparison between H2 and fossil and biofuels, such as ethanol. Questions regarding storage conditions, emissions levels, Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) air/fuel ratio among others are expected to be covered as well.
