Chemical Hydrides for Hydrogen Storage in Fuel Cell Applications 2012-01-1229

Due to its high hydrogen storage capacity (up to 16% by weight for the release of 2.5 molar equivalents of hydrogen gas) and its stability under typical ambient conditions, ammonia borane (AB) is a promising material for chemical hydrogen storage for fuel cell applications in transportation sector. Several systems models for chemical hydride materials such as solid AB, solvated AB and alane were developed and evaluated at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to determine an optimal configuration that would meet the 2010 and future DOE targets for hydrogen storage. This paper presents an overview of those systems models and discusses the simulation results for various transient drive cycle scenarios.
